Comic-Con 2016: Season 2 of Voltron Legendary Defender will premiere later this year on Netflix
DreamWorks Animation and Netflix have confirmed that Season 2 of the critically-acclaimed Netflix original series Voltron: Legendary Defender will premiere on the streaming service later this year. The announcement was made today, Thursday 21st, at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) during Dreamworks’ Voltron: Legendary Defender panel.
The announcement was delivered to an ecstatic audience of attendees by the show’s, executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos, co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery and writer Tim Hedrick. The creative staff were also joined by surprise guest Steven Yeun who does the voice acting for Keith, the pilot of the red lion.
Attendees were also treated the Voltron team’s favourite scenes from season 1, behind-the-scenes stories of the how the show is put together and most tantalizingly, fans were shown a sneak peek of what’s to come in season 2 of Voltron: Legendary Defender. Season 2 will follow on from where team Voltron were left following the season 1 finale cliffhanger.
For those who haven’t seen the first series of Voltron: Legendary Defender it is still viewable through the Netflix streaming service and I highly recommend that you pick it up. However be aware that the first episode of Voltron is feature length, so ensure you have enough time to view it in one sitting. You can find a brief description of season one below:
DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender Season 1 tells the epic story of a handful of cadets at Earth’s Galaxy Garrison space academy who encounter alien life for the first time. Shocked to discover that the universe is under siege by the merciless Emperor Zarkon and his Galra hordes, pilots Shiro, Keith, Lance, Pidge, and Hunk unwittingly find themselves recruited to join a mission more dangerous and thrilling than they could have imagined. This ragtag group of pilots-in-training must suddenly learn to work as a team as they come to the aid of the desperate Princess Allura, who leads them to face an enemy of endless cunning and unimaginable power. Their only hope? Locating and learning how to fly five mystical robot lions scattered across galaxies that will form the universe’s ultimate weapon, the gigantic super-warrior Voltron.
Season 2 of DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender will premiere exclusively on Netflix in late 2016.
