While the second season of Overlord may have concluded back in April after 13 episodes, fans of the anime series won’t have to wait very long for season 3 as Madhouse, the studio behind the series announced that “OVERLORD III” would be coming in 2018.

With the season 3 set to air sometime in July, Funimation recently announced that it will be premiering the first episode of the new season complete with English Dub on July 7th at Anime Expo. This could mean that fans who attend the event will be the first ones to watch the episode before it even airs in Japan which will include various guests including “OVERLORD” author Kugane Maruyama, series director Naoyuki Ito, Producer Kazufumi Kikushima, English ADR Director Kyle Phillips and Chris Guerrero, the English voice of Ainz Ooal Gown.
