Netflix has a Holiday gift for Voltron fans. The final season of the animated show is set to bow on December the 14th.
After saving the Earth, the Paladins embark to prevent Honerva from setting into motion her deadliest plan yet. It’s a race against the clock as the Voltron Coalition gathers from the corners of the galaxy to defend the universe once and for all.
The end is nigh
“We are incredibly proud to bring the story of Voltron Legendary defender to a close with the 8th and final season. It has been an absolute honor to work alongside such a talented and dedicated crew these past 4 years over 78 episodes. Witnessing the fandom grow and evolve alongside the show has been nothing short of amazing and saying goodbye to these characters, the amazing worlds they inhabit and the crazy vehicles they pilot will be truly bittersweet. We can only hope that this series will be looked back on fondly in the years to come and stoke the creative flame inside all of us, the same way the original did when we first watched it.” – executive producers Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery.
A total of 13 episodes are set to close out what’s been a pretty universally liked series. The reboot of the classic 80s cartoon reset the Voltron Force team, adding new members and shaking up the dynamic. Somehow though, everything worked, and the show was well done, bringing some legitimately cool ideas to the fiction.
As usual with Netflix shows, all 13 of those installments are set to hit on the same day. So if you’ve been enjoying the show, make your viewing plans now.
