These announcements were made during Overlord‘s broadcast marathon special live stream on Niconico on 8th May 2021. During the live stream Satoshi Hino, Yumi Hara and Sumire Uesaka, the voice cast for Ainz, Albedo and Shalltear respectively, announced that Overlord Season 4 was on the way. In addition, an anime film project that will cover the Paladin of the Holy Kingdom arc was also confirmed.
Madhouse and many of the staff and voice cast who worked on the previous seasons of Overlord will working on the new season. Currently, there is no mention of a release date for both the anime and the film.
The illustrator for Overlord‘s Light Novel, so-bin, drew the following image to celebrate the announcement of season 4.
It is likely that season 4 will cover volume 10 and 11 of the light novel, The Ruler of Conspiracy and The Craftsmen of Dwarf. Since Paladin of the Holy Kingdom stretches across two light novel volumes, it is also possible that season 4 will end with Part I of the Paladin of the Holy Kingdom, while the movie will adapt Part II. Note that this is just speculation.
