The intergalactic animated story called Voltron hit Netflix first in 2016. Voltron: Legendary Defender tells a tale of 5 pilots known as Paladins who are saviors of the universe. They combine their lion shaped spacecraft to defend the universe. The series is an 80’s redo of Voltron: Defender of the Universe show. On August 10, Season 7 of Voltron premiered.
Since 2016, seven seasons have aired on Netflix with a lesser gap between the series. Season 8 is going to be the last of the Seasons’ of Voltron: The Ledger Defender. The makers of Voltron had a 78 episode deal with Netflix. And as of now, only 26 episodes are left in the series.
Voltron Legendary Defender Season 8: Release Date
Reports of Season 7 have been doing rounds for a long time now. The Season is due as 13 episodes are left to air. At the same time Voltron Season 8 is going to be the last of Voltron series. At SDCC, the crew of Voltron confirmed that Season 7 would have 13 episodes to air, which it did of course. It must be mentioned that Season 3 and 6 of Voltron were there shortest, with only 6-7 episodes to broadcast.
Via Twitter account, the Voltron crew confirmed it would head to NYCC in October to hype its final chapter; this will take place on October 5th at 10:30 a.m. local time. NYC will host the panel at the Hammerstein Ballroom at The Manhattan Centre. One can expect the team to update fans on Season 8 there and then.
Season 8 of Voltron will, therefore, air before the end of 2018. Reports suggest that the team behind Voltron wants to wrap up the series before 2019. Therefore Voltron will air in the last month of 2018, as per my guess.
