Overlord Season 3 is back with more action. The first season of Overlord aired back in September 2015, in Japan, and it took nearly three years for Madhouse Studio to produce a second season, as Overlord 2 was released in January 2018. However, the wait for the third season, won’t be that long. We have spoilers and release date for Overlord 3 Episode 1.
Overlord Season 3 Episode 1 Release Date
The first episode of Overlord Season 3 was originally going to air on July 7. However, it was pushed back to July 10. We are not going to be seeing action from the starting of the season, as the last season ended just recently in April 2018.
Before we begin with the spoilers of Overlord Season 3 episode 1, I’d like to share the good news and the bad news for Overlord fans. The good news, Overlord Season 3 is finally here, and we didn’t have to wait for three years to get a new season. The bad news is if there’s going to be an Overlord Season 4, we are not going to get it anytime soon, the main reason behind this is, the content.
Overlord Manga will need a few years worth of chapters to catch up to the anime series; we will probably need to wait two to three years for the fourth Season.
Overlord Season III Episode 1 Details
According to our sources, Overlord III will be based on the 9th volume of the light novel series, and this season will consist of a total of 13 episodes. As seen in the trailer of the third season, Gazef Stronoff, the Warrior-Captain of the Re-Estize Kingdom challenged Lord Momonga in a one-on-one duel, and this is most likely what the first episode will be focused on.
The author of Overlord confirmed that he has 50 volumes worth of ideas for the overlord manga; however, he plans to end the light novel series somewhere around volume 20, this is because he doesn’t want to draft the story for too long.
