The popular anime Overlord is returning for its fourth season. It has been a long time since the last episode of season 3 was aired. Almost a year and a half have passed since then.

The plot of the anime series is very unique involving virtual gaming. The story is set in 2138 when virtual online gaming is ruling the world. When an online game shuts down a gamer refuses to log off.
He gets sucked into the game and becomes a powerful wizard named “Momonga”. As Momonga starts ruling the new fantasy world with an iron fist killing everyone who opposes him. Find more about the story here – Overlord (TV).
