We don’t know many details about the film yet, but it will revolve around the Holy Kingdom Arc. The 4th season’s premiere date was not disclosed either, but it will come out by the end of 2021 or early 2022. This prolonged wait will surely be worth it.

The cast of Overlord Season 4

There are no confirmed characters so far. But we are assuming that the main protagonists will reprise their old respective roles. In that case, expect these characters in the 4th season:

  • Ainz (Satoshi Hino)

He was once known as Momonga, but after he transforms into a skeletal game character, he starts calling himself Ainz Oal Gown. The entire anime revolves around him and his adventures.

  • Albedo (Yumi Hara)

She is one of the main characters and the self-proclaimed wife of Albedo.

  • Shalltear (Sumire Uesaka)

She is one of the floor guardians of The Great Tomb of Nazarick and a true vampire.

  • Aura (Emiri Katou)

She is a compelling character and a dark elf. Plus, she has a twin, Mare Bello Fiore; both guard the 6th floor in The Great Tomb of Nazarick.

  • Mare (Yumi Uchiyama)

He is the twin brother of Aura and a floor guardian!

  • Demiurge (Masayuki Katou)

He is a robust character who terrorizes others by misusing his powers. Demiurge is also the commander of NPC Defences.

  • Cocytus (Kenta Miyake)

He is one of the main antagonists and guards the 5th floor of Nazarick.

There might be some more additions to the cast, which we don’t know about yet. But hopefully, in the future, the showrunners will reveal the official line-up! And whenever they disclose this information, we will let you know!


The first 3 seasons of the anime have covered most of the volumes of the novel it is based on, except a few. Season 4 will most probably follow the 10th,11th, and 12th volumes!

“The Ruler of Conspiracy” (the 10th volume) focuses on Ainz, who one day decides to transform his kingdom into heaven for everyone. But he faces many difficulties in trying to fulfill this task.

“The Craftsman of Dwarf” (the 11th volume) shows Ainz visiting the Dwarf kingdom with Shalltear and Aura Bella. But Ainz has a purpose for this visit. He wants to find the “Lost run magic.” But upon his arrival, he realizes that the place is under attack.

“The Paladin of the Holy Kingdom” (the 12th volume) features the attack of Demiurge (the Demon Emperor). The story of 4th season will be one of these three!


There is no official trailer or even a teaser for the upcoming season yet. But whenever it drops, we’ll let you know at the earliest.
