New Season For Netflix's She-Ra Coming This April
The magical battle continues.
A second season of She-Ra and the Princesses Of Power has been announced. The Netflix exclusive will be returning this year on April 26.
She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is a reboot of the 1980s She-Ra: Princess of Power, which is a spin-off of the popular He-Man and the Masters of the Universe series. The new Netflix animated series is helmed by Noelle Stevenson, with protagonist Adora and antagonist Catra respectively voiced by Elena of Avalor's Aimee Carrero and Steven Universe's AJ Michalka.
In Season 1, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power follows the adventures of Adora, a young woman raised by the Evil Horde. Adora leaves behind all she knows after meeting and befriending rebel fighters Glimmer and Bow, both of whom show Adora the horrors that the Horde have enacted on the rest of the world of Etheria. Armed with a magical sword that can transform her into an amazonian warrior known as She-Ra, Adora sets out with Glimmer and Bow to create an alliance amongst Etheria's princesses to defeat the Horde. All the while, Adora's childhood friend Catra--feeling betrayed after being left behind--enacts a plan to rise within the ranks of the Horde and destroy the Princess Alliance.
Although the first season ended with the immediate threat thwarted, there are still several storylines that have yet to be addressed. Hopefully Season 2 continues most of these lingering threads. She-Ra and the Princesses of Power developed a fierce fanbase with its first season, with most critics pointing to the show's diverse cast of characters and portrayal of Adora and Catra--whose relationship fluctuates between friendship, bittersweet love, and murderous intent--as the highlights.
