While fans were saddened that the third season was shortened, they were rewarded with a Voltron: Legendary Defender release date that came sooner than they were expecting! Fans of Netflix’s Voltron: Legendary Defender were worried that producers Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery would cut down the original 78 episodes, but that doesn’t seem likely to happen. Anxious to find out Voltron: Legendary Defender’s release time, many are asking—what time does Voltron: Legendary Defender come out on Netflix? To find out when Voltron: Legendary Defender comes out and what you can expect from the upcoming season, just keep reading!
Since the season three finale wasn’t as climactic as season two’s, we have reason to believe season four will likely be a continuation of season three—especially because the third season only had seven episodes, and the fourth will have an addition six. The showrunners mentioned that it’s their goal to give fans more episodes of Voltron: Legendary Defender more often, instead of making them wait around for longer periods of time between seasons. This explains the unusually short seasons, as Montgomery explained it during the DreamWorks TV Comic-Con panel this past summer: “The idea is to get you more ‘Voltron’ more often. It’s in smaller doses, but you’ll see it more,” she said.
Splitting the Seasons
While Dos Santos mentioned that the decision to split season three was an executive decision that came from above, he liked the idea when he was presented with it. “Creatively, it actually it…it makes sense in this instance. We’re excited people don’t have to wait as long between seasons because that can get a little tedious, as well,” Dos Santos added.
What is Voltron: Legendary Defender About?
According to Netflix, it is an animated cartoon series that surrounds the story of five unlikely heroes and their flying robot lions, who unite to form the mega-powerful Voltron and defend the universe from evil.
Netflix’s Air Date
With all the buzz surrounding its return, many are anxious to see the new season of Voltron and are frantically searching online for clues as to what this season will hold. The first season premiered on June 10, 2016 on Netflix and consisted of 13 episodes. Since then, fans have been hooked and excited for the big reveal of the fourth season. There have been a ton of clips released and floating around online, but nothing compares to a full episode—so when does Voltron: Legendary Defender come out? It’ll premiere on Netflix on Friday October 13, 2017. So much for Friday the 13th be unlucky, huh?
A Highly Anticipated Fourth Season
So, what’s in store for season four? In the season three finale, we found out that Prince Lotor wanted to cross into other realities; and in a clip released ahead of the entire fourth season, we see him put that plan into action. In the sneak peek viewers got, Prince Lotor and his entourage return to Planet Daibazaal—or what`s left of it. This is where the original rift between realities is located, and King Alfor`s plan to decimate it by destroying the planet itself doesn`t seem to have worked. Now, Lotor plans on using it to pursue his own goals.
