In 2015, the popular Madhouse studio presented a new anime Overlord, based on an early book of the same name. The project turned out to be incredibly popular, but opinions about it differed diametrically. Part of the audience thought the series incredibly stupid, others were delighted with the show, saying that it is a perfect adaptation of the literary source.
Despite all the disagreements, Madhouse continues to work on the anime. The fourth season of the show was released in 2022. There was no news about the closure of the story, and the season finale makes it possible to count on a continuation, and therefore the release date of season 5 of the series Overlord is expected by fans in 2024. There has been no official announcement, but the chances of a sequel are high.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
The story in the series Overlord takes viewers to the distant future, where technology has evolved that allowed to create games with maximum immersion. Such a project was Yggdrasil, in which players can take either side, good or evil, but after twelve years of existence, the developers decide to close the game.
One of Momonga’s oldest players and founder of one of the largest guilds stays in the game until the servers shut down, but when that happens, he realizes that he has not been thrown out of virtual reality, and the NPCs have turned into real beings with intelligence. Momonga decides to explore the new virtual world, given the fact that he cannot leave it, and begins his adventure, which will continue in new episodes whose release date will be in 2024.

Momong’s plan is simple – he decides not to give away his real origins and tries to blend in with the other NPCs. The hero joins a new clan fighting on the side of evil, where he quickly advances thanks to his human knowledge. The guy is nicknamed the Dark Warrior for his mysteriousness and incredible abilities during battles, and Momonga himself realizes that he has a chance to become a lord in the newly formed world. The hero sets this as his goal, but soon realizes that he’s not the only real person stuck in the game, which means he has some serious competition. Whether Momonga achieves his goal will be told in new episodes. The release date for season 5 of the anime series Overlord is tentatively scheduled for 2024.
Officially the new series Madhouse studio has not announced, but its representatives told that the fourth season will be followed by a full-length animated film Knight of the Holy Kingdom. Viewers are sure that the work on it does not allow the studio to officially announce a new season of the series, but after its release the next season will be released, because the anime rating is high, and the original provides a lot of material for further development of the show. The release date for the new episodes is expected in 2024.
