Now Playing: Voltron Legendary Defender - Official Season 7 Comic-Con Trailer | SDCC 2018

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.
