‘Voltron: Legendary Defender’ Sets October Season 4 Premiere in First Trailer
I know – didn’t Voltron: Legendary Defender just have a premiere? Such is the case when shortened seasons are divided into multiple premieres, as the Netflix remake is already prepping Season 4 for launch with a first trailer for the October return.
Entertainment Weekly premiered a first trailer for the return of Voltron: Legendary Defender, which follows the August Season 3 episodes with another shortened round set to premiere on October 13. There’s no Zarkon in the new footage, despite his seeming return in the prior episodes, but we do see Voltron fever starting to grip the galaxy:
In the meantime, here’s what co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery said of the series’ new dynamic:
As Voltron goes around and helps and saves these planets and fights back against the Galra, he becomes a symbol to these people. So, just in him existing and doing what he does, his presence kind of just becomes this thing that people rally behind. They need to utilize that to call people to the cause and bring them into this coalition that they’re building, because they know they can’t fight this war alone. Something that we wanted to do from day one was make Voltron truly the Defender of the Universe and to have this huge world of aliens built out in space. In the first couple seasons, we were focusing so much on our paladins that we just got to see little glimpses of the rest of the world, or the rest of space, the universe. Now we really get to see a lot more of that. It’s been really fun to handle in the show.
For those unfamiliar with the series, Voltron: Legendary Defender re-imagines the classic animated property, and features among its cast Jeremy Shada (Adventure Time) as Lance, Bex Taylor-Klaus (Scream) as Pidge, Josh Keaton (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) as Shiro, Tyler Labine (Tucker and Dale vs. Evil) as Hunk, Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) as Keith, Kimberly Brooks (Mass Effect) as Princess Allura, Rhys Darby (A Series of Unfortunate Events) as Coran and A.J. LoCascio as Prince Lotor.
