‘Overlord’ season 4 release date: Will the anime return this in 2019?

Reports may be suggesting that the “Overlord” season 4 confirmations came from official sources. However, fans must consider the fact that no formal announcement has been made yet.

Meanwhile, the fall season is almost here and this period is usually the preferred time to release returning anime series. Since not much has been announced about “Overlord” season 4 yet, it is safe to assume that the show will not return this year. It has also been speculated that the producers might want to delay the release of the fourth season to allow new installments of the light novel series to be launched first. In this case, the anime might not air until 2020 or 2021.
