When is the Release Date of Overlord Season 4?

 
Well, this is the biggest question. Supposedly, Overlord Season 4 should be out last July 2020 as announced by the producers of the show. However, this global pandemic has really affected everyone. This is the reason why the release date was moved many times.
 
There has been some news circulating about the release of Overlord Season 4. Many hope that it will be launched between September and December 2020. Others say at least early to the middle of 2021. But, we have to wait for the official announcement yet. Let’s be patient because of our current condition.
 
However, let’s hope that the release will be earlier than expected.
 

Overlord Season 4: Expected Plot

In Overlord season 3, we saw that Ainz found the Sorcerer Kingdom with Albedo and the other pledging alliance to him. In Overlord Season 4, we can expect that Ainz will show more of his capabilities. He will prove his worth. Besides, he will overcome all problems coming to his way. Likewise, he will succeed in governing the Sorcerer Kingdom. Although he is trapped inside a video game, he will make sure that he is still the king. Moreover, Aniz will kill his enemies so that he can build a stronger empire.
 
This season will probably show more action and power so that Ainz can lead the Sorcerer Kingdom successfully. This will give more excitement and thrill to the viewers of the show.

To give more improvement to the show, new characters might enter. But most of the characters of the Overlord Series returned in the previous season. Thus, there is a high chance that the same characters and voice cast will come back for Overlord Season 4.
 

These are some of the popular characters of Overlord Season 4

 
Ainz Ooal Gown- Chris Guerrero
 
He is the main character of the series otherwise called “Momon.” In the New World of Overlord Season 4, he is Sorcerer King of The Sorcerer Kingdom. He is a dark warrior and leader of darkness with the most powerful magic cast. Besides, he is the strongest adventurer in E-Rantel.
 
Albedo- Elizabeth Maxwell and Yumi Hara
 
Tabula Smaragdina created Albedo. Tabula originally programmed Albedo to be a slut, but Momonga changed her personality. Instead, he changed her setting to be madly in love with him.
 
She is the Overseer of the Guardians of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. She is in charge of the general management and supervises the activities of the seven Floor Guardians.
 
Shalltear Bloodfallen- Felecia Angelle and Sumire Uesaka
 
She is a true vampire and a Floor Guardian of the first and third floors in Nazarick. Furthermore, as a true vampire, Shalltear takes her position seriously. But, she has no patience or tolerance for failure. Thus, she often gets angry in any undesirable situation. Peroroncino created her. He made her as one of the subjects of his own desires.
 
Aura Bella Flora
 
Bukubukuchagam created Aura. His creator based her personality on the circumstances in real life. Aura Bella is the twin sister of Mare Bello Fiore. Moreover, is a dark elf and one of the twin Floor Guardians on the 6th floor in Nazarick. As a beast tamer and ranger, she is capable of controlling magic beasts and is a master of guerrilla warfare.
 
Mare Bello Flore- Megan Shipman and Yumi Uchiyama
 
Mare Bello is a dark elf and the twin brother of Aura Bella Fiora. He is one of the Floor Guardians on the 6th floor of Nazarick.
 
Just like his sister Bukubukuchagama also created him. He created them to have a sibling-type relationship. This made him submissive to his twin sister.
 
In terms of personality, Mare is the opposite of Aura because he has a shy and weak personality. Likewise, he often stutters when speaking and often feels nervous during conversations. Moreover, He has much interest in collecting plant species, unlike his sister who likes collecting beast. Finally, he is observant of his master’s movement and even praises him.
 
Demiurge- Jeff Johnson and Masayuki Kato
 
Ulbert Alain Odle created Demiurge as one of the Foor Guardians of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. In Overlord Season 4, Demiurge will still be a demon. He is one of the cruelest members in Nazarick and enjoys great sufferings of other races. Furthermore, he performs magic experiments on the prisoners sent to him. He even considers them as nothing but a toy for his own satisfaction. On the positive side, Demiurge has a more artistic side to him. He is a skilled carpenter and artisan, with hobbies of crafting beautiful works of art.
 
Moreover, in the New World, Demiurge will continue to make allies with other nations. This will help them further their interest against Nazarick.
 
Cocytus
 
Warrior Takemikazuchi created Cocytus. He is the Floor Guardian of the 5th Floor of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. In his setting, his creator programmed him to be smart. He has every sort of knowledge on all of the 41 Supreme Beings’ Divine Weapons. As a Floor Guardian, he is in-charge of Nazarick’s martial defense. Also, Cocytus is a loyal servant to the point that he follows every order to him.
 
There are more characters from the past season to have their come back. But, let’s expect new members to enter the show.
