Netflix’s animation partnership with DreamWorks has yielded significant returns thus far; not just for Guillermo del Toro’s Trollhunters, but also Voltron: Legendary Defender. That formation is getting even stronger, as reports indicate Season 3 is a go for fall 2017, with potentially many more episodes to come.
It may not have the fanfare of its predecessor, but Netflix’s Voltron: Legendary Defender is nonetheless back for Season 2 this very Friday, and looking pretty divided, at that. Our first clips from the new season sees the disparate team members exploring some strange new territory, including underwater worlds, and … a giant pile of garbage. Onward!
Netflix borrowed a few pages from The Legend of Korra to make Voltron: Legendary Defender an impressive success for the streaming network, and Season 2 looks to be building on that well. There’s new heroes, new villains and new worlds in the first official trailer for Season 2, ahead of a January premiere.
Let’s face it, Netflix’s already-forgiving standards and the required turnaround of animation already gave Voltron: Legendary Defender a strong shot at returning the five lions for Season 2, but there’s better news yet. Season 2 will air as early as later this year, so get ready to form up once again!
Netflix hasn’t been particularly shy with forming the Legendary Defender that makes up its new Korra-sized take on Voltron, delivering photos and an early teaser, but now the giant hero has finally arrived. See for yourself in the full Voltron: Legendary Defender trailer, as the classic robot fighter joins a new generation of pilot for a delightfully updated take on the material.
Netflix’s Voltron: Legendary Defender reboot has thus far formed a first look in bits and pieces, but the full details have finally assembled. Find out who’s in the cast, from Walking Dead to Arrow stars, when the new Voltron will premiere, and a host of other details!
