Most of the anime shows take a lot of time in between two seasons and the creators mostly wait for the source material to finish up so they won’t have any pacing issues. Overlord Season 4 should be announced shortly after the next light novel series of the series gets out.
Overlord Season 4 will Renewed after the Light Novel Series
Overlord Season 4 production will start soon as the source material is out as it needs proper volumes to have a faithful adaptation of the storyline. Also, the anime makers always release their shows a few years after the manga series or light novel volume series in case of Overlord to not disturb their sales. Overlord season 4 will surely be a success as the latest volume which is the 14th volume series wise has been largely popular.
Overlord volume 14 was released on March 12, 2020.

Overlord light novel series Volume 14 written by Kugane Maruyama and illustrated by so-bin has sold 120,601 copies and 11,860 special edition copies. It proves that the fourth season of Overlord anime will be renewed soon once the next light novel volume 15 is out in the market.
Overlord Season 4 Release Date and COVID-19 Delay for the Anime
Overlord anime series is still popular despite it has been years without any new episodes. There is a considerable gap between the Japanese and English versions of Overlord light novel release and a similar timeframe can be expected for the anime release. Overlord Season 4 should be released next year as per the speculations and it has enough source materials to create 12 to 13 episodes of the anime series for the small screen fans.
There is also the coronavirus pandemic factor to consider which has delayed major anime and manga series in Japan. Yukie Sugawara, the popular anime screenwriter is confident that Overlord season 4 will come out soon and the renewal will be confirmed shortly.
