‘Voltron Legendary Defender’ Season 3 Trailer Reveals the Search for a New Paladin

     July 21, 2017


When last we left the valiant Paladins of Netflix’s Voltron Legendary Defender, they had won a decisive victory but at great personal cost. (You can get caught up on the show’s Season 2 finale here since I’ll be avoiding spoilers.) Now, the first trailer for Season 3 of the excellent animated series shows how the team is planning to pick up the pieces and reassemble the team, which they must do in short order if they have any hope to form the mighty Voltron.

Season 3 has been confirmed as a 7-episode run that will premiere August 4th, but fans won’t have long to wait for the follow-up: Season 4 will hit Netflix this October. And for more animation news out of this weekend’s Comic-Con, be sure to keep track of this regularly updated round-up here!
