The new Voltron series has a lot of fans and after Voltron Legendary Defender Season 2 those fans were left hanging. The Voltron team could no longer form Voltron, thanks to Shiro’s disappearance after the defeat of Zarkon.
Thanks to San Diego Comic-Con, fans got to see what happens next as they got the opportunity to watch the first episode of Season 3 on Thursday.
At least the rest of us don’t have to wait too long as the new 7-episode season will air August 4th on Netflix.
Season 3 picks up in the wake of Zarkon’s defeat and Shiro’s disappearance, as the paladins struggle to move forward with no one able to pilot the black lion or the ability to form Voltron. The team must quickly devise a plan as the ascension of Prince Lotor and his generals pulls the team into a perilous game of cat-and-mouse that tests their unity and abilities more than ever before.
It may be a short season, but it will only be a two month wait for season 4. Season 4 of Voltron Legendary Defender will air in October and will consist of 6 episodes. We will get a new villain in Prince Lotor, voiced by AJ Locasio.
In the meantime we can watch the trailer below;
The success of Zarkon’s defeat comes at a price: Shiro has vanished. With the ascension of the mysterious Prince Lotor and without a pilot for the black lion, the team must somehow find the strength to keep fighting. But how can they defend the universe without Voltron? Find out when all-new episodes of Voltron Legendary Defender come to Netflix, August 4.
