The Overlord series is likely looking to juice the book publishing side again as a fourth season was announced for the light novel property back in May of 2021. We learned at the time that the new season is set to cover the Holy Kingdom arc from the novels. A theatrical film is also in the works.

With the fourth TV season making a July 5th, 2022 premiere, the latest update is in regards to the feature film which is going by the name Overlord the Movie: Holy Kingdom Arc. Other than the key visual below we had previously, the film now has a new promotional video below and confirms plans for a 2024 debut!

The project is bringing back the main cast and staff with it as Naoyuki Itou is directing based on the screenplay overseen by Yukie Sugawara. Satoshi Tasaki is adapting so-bin’s designs with Madhouse handling the animation production.

The opening theme song is “HOLLOW HUNGER” from OxT while the ending theme song is “No Man’s Dawn” from Mayu Maeshima.
