Voltron: Legendary Defender gets a second season on Netflix.
Given the critical and commercial success of season one, it is no surprise that Voltron: Legendary Defender has been renewed for a season season. Dreamworks and Netflix’s remake of the 80’s classic Voltron is slated to arrive sooner than we would have expected: Season two will begin in late 2016. At the San Diego Comic-Con, Voltron: Legendary Defender made its debut and gave the official announcement.
We’re paying homage to the original by staying close to its anime roots.
A reboot of the original 1984 animated series, Voltron: Legendary Defender sees Keith (Yuen), Shiro (Josh Keaton), Pidge (Bex Taylor-Klaus), Hunk (Tyler Labine) and Lance (Jeremy Shada) return to piloting the legendary lions and subsequently forming the ultimate weapon Voltron. The story mainly revolves around our knights defending against King Zarkon’s plan of galactic domination. Under the guidance of elf-eared extraterrestrial princess (Brooks) and her counselor (Darby), the team travels across the universe having unique adventures countering Zarkon’s forces.
