May the force always be with the Paladins! (see what I did there) They have now amassed a strong force of aliens to beat back the Galra. Voltron might have dropped the biggest bomb on its fans. At the end of Season 7, the Paladins (5 pilots) came back to Earth to reunite with their families. I could have bet on Galra having the upper hand but that, of course, didn’t happen.
The series is an 80’s redo of Voltron: Defender of the Universe show. At the very beginning, I should tell you that Season 8 of Voltron is all that you are going to get. The series is going to end pretty soon. We all have our expectations for the show, you and me. So let’s debate today on what to expect besides the key details and everything else.
Voltron Season 8: Release Date
In 2016, the first Season of Voltron aired. Ever since then 7 Seasons have made their debut on Netflix in a shorter span of time. The series had an efficient team behind it that ensured a quick renewal and release. Therefore a 78 episode deal signed in 2016 has come down to 13 remaining episodes only. By the end of 2018, one must expect Voltron to air. The creative team behind Voltron wants to wrap up the show before 2018 ends.
The NYCC in October will give Voltron the hype that it deserves. On October 5th at 10:30 a.m. at the Hammerstein Ballroom, a panel will be hosted that will talk of Voltron upcoming (last) Season’s details including the release date. Watch out for October 5th, fans for the air date to the remaining 13 episodes. Season 7 of Voltron had 13 episodes too.
Voltron: Legendary Defender – What To Expect
There are certain plot points that makers of Voltron need to address. The first one being The Identity of Altean. This biggest plot thread has to be dealt with, in any case. Since the end of Season 7, this has been haunting fans and critics alike. Why were they in An Evangelion style mech? A person that is left undefined would be cue number one for redressal. Next, Hunk revealed in Season 7 that he’s looking to leave the team. Hunk wants to pass the Yellow Lion to someone unmentioned. Is Hunk dissatisfied with the Paladin? Is he looking for more? Moreover to whom will Hunk pass the Paladin? It remains to be seen.
Next up, the show makers should deal with Haggers mystery. This mysterious character needs some light to be shed on. Besides the minute backstory nothing else was shown to us. What is she trying to do with the Quintessence? Is she looking to control the Galra and most importantly what will she get out of it, remains be dealt with. The show makers need to address Allura and Lance romance. By Season 7 we could see the attraction between them reach a climax. Should Space Mice pilot the Yellow Lion after Hulk? Makers of Voltron, please deal with all this before you exit.
Voltron Season 8: Cast
The main cast is expected to be back for Season 8:
Josh Keaton as Takashi “Shiro” Shirogane, Steven Yeun as Keith
Jeremy Shada as Lance
Bex Taylor- Klaus as Katie “Pidge Gunderson” Holt
Tyler Labine as Hunk

Rhys Darby as Coran and
Neil Kaplan as Emperor Zarkon.
Is There Trailer For Voltron Season 8?
Like I said, October 5th Hammerstein Ballroom panel will decide how and where the show goes. If the show is to air in 2018, the trailer shouldn’t be far away. Stay tuned for more.
