And now the second season has been officially confirmed with an announcement at the end of the second compilation movie. Overlord is coming back and fans of the series are all understandably excited to see Momonga and the rest of Ainz Ooal Gown on the screen again.

Overlord is an isekai anime following the story of Momonga, a powerful skeletal wizard and master of the dark guild Ainz Ooal Gown, in a video game called Yggdrasil. He finds himself stuck in a different world after staying logged on when the game was taken down.
He now sets himself to learn about this new world and find any Yggdrasil players who may have been transported there with him – all with the help of his dark guild’s morally questionable NPCs who have all gained consciousness and sworn utter loyalty to him.
Are you a fan of the first season? And how excited are you about lifting the “Madhouse Curse”?
