‘Voltron: Legendary Defender’ has proven to be a massive hit for Netflix.  After two seasons, the revival of the 80s classic mecha anime has amassed a devoted following and Netflix ordered both Seasons Three and Four concurrently.  Season Three, consisting of seven episodes, is available to stream now, with Four, six episodes, coming our way in October.  (Date to be determined)

When we last saw the Paladins, things weren’t looking very well for them.  Even after their victory, Shiro, the pilot of the Black Lion, meaning that they can, for the time being, they are unable to form Voltron.  In Shiro’s place, Princess Allura has accompanied the team in their battle against The Generals, now led by Prince Lotor after the fall of Emporer Zarkon.

Co-producer Lauren Montgomery discussed the tone of the show, now that Shiro is missing:

“Everyone feels vulnerable; they don’t feel like there’s any one person they can count on, so they’re each going to step up in a way to fill that void and just move forward as characters and kind of leave a little bit of the goofy shenanigans behind and take things a little more seriously.”

Check out this clip of the Paladins taking on Lotar’s Generals:
