Comic-Con 2018: Voltron Legendary Defender Season 7 Released, Final Season Confirmed
Voltron: Legendary Defender is approaching its end.
Voltron: Legendary Defender is Netflix's hugely popular update of the classic animated sci-fi show Voltron, and the seventh season hits the streaming service on August 10. The series featured at San Diego Comic-Con, where a new trailer for Season 7 was revealed.
The trailer shows that the Defenders are returning to Earth with the hopes of rebuilding the Castle of Lions, which was destroyed in the last season. It's packed with the same mix of action, drama, and nostalgic callbacks to the classic Voltron that has made the previous six seasons so popular. Check it out above.
The Voltron: Legendary Defender SDCC panel had both good news and bad news for fans. It was confirmed that Season 7 will return the show to 13 episodes, following much shorter runs for Seasons 3 to 6. Sadly however, it was also revealed that this is to be the penultimate season. Season 8, which is expected in 2019, will end the entire show, so fans have just 26 more episodes to enjoy.
Voltron fans attending SDCC also have the chance to buy a huge Lego figure based on the show. This is Lego's biggest "buildable" action figure to date, coming in at 2,321 pieces, and has a price point to match, with the set costing a hefty $180. Fans can also buy the Voltron figure online from August 1.
Voltron: Legendary Defender was the first show released following the deal struck between Netflix and DreamWorks Animation late in 2015. The original Voltron was a Japanese and American co-production that ran for three seasons between 1984 and 1986. It proved hugely popular, spawning spinoff shows, comic books, and video games.
