Overlord started as a light novel series in 2010, later receiving a manga and anime adaptation in 2015. The story takes place in the world of a futuristic MMORPG, and follows Satoru Suzuki a.k.a. Momonga, the guild master of a high-ranking guild in the game. When the game’s servers shut down, Suzuki finds himself trapped in the body of his player character. He then reestablishes his guild and sets off to explore the world in search of other players who have met the same fate.
The fourth season was officially announced back in May 2021, after the third season ended in 2018. The upcoming season will cover the events of the 10th and 11th light novels. Furthermore, Kadokawa also announced the production of a feature film releasing after the fourth season, which will cover the events of the 12th and 13th books.
