DreamWorks Animation and Netflix have announced that season two of Voltron: Legendary Defender will premiere exclusively on the streaming service on January 20, 2017.
The new adventures will pick up after the season one cliffhanger, with the paladins scattered throughout the universe in the wake of a tough battle with Zarkon, Haggar and the Galra Empire. Our heroes will face new challenges as they bring mighty Voltron back together and plot to take down Zarkon once and for all.
At New York Comic Con, fans packed the house for the Voltron panel, which included a full episode screening from season two — “The Depths,” which finds Hunk and Lance crash landed on an underwater planet and reveals that Pidge might be a hoarder.
On hand to answer fan questions were voice actors Jeremy Shada (Lance) and Bex Taylor-Klaus (Pidge), executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos, co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery and story editor Tim Hedrick. They shared details about season two, including that the guest star list includes the inimitable Weird Al Yankovic.
Fans also learned more about the Voltron Playmates Toys which will be hitting stores in January, and about the Voltron Collective collaborative consumer products lines.
