Until the official plot, synopsis and trailer arrive for the fourths season of the Netflix Original, here are some of the stories we can expect. Let’s start with the end of the third season.

Plus, on the other side, Claudia is still worried about the fate of Aaravos.
Some sources suggest that Season 4 of The Dragon Prince might make the rivalry between dragons and humans bitter. Since the fact that humans wanted to destroy Dragon Prince and ruin the eggs by introducing a new successor.
