It seems funny to me that this same time last year, NYCC attendees were learning for the first time about She-Ra and the Princesses of Power in a partially filled Hammerstein Ballroom panel. Fast forward one year later and the show just had a Mainstage panel that was completely filled to the brim with She-Ra fans young and old, some of whom in full cosplay of characters from the show. She-Ra has found a dedicated audience that has been eager to embrace the show and its characters, myself included.
In that year, we’ve gotten three seasons and 26 episodes of light-hearted fantasy with a mix of emotional turmoil, but Season 3 really kicked the emotional tensions into overdrive with a climatic finale that will hopefully have long lasting ramifications. A fourth season was an inevitability giving the last season’s cliffhanger ending, with Netflix and creator Noelle Stevenson unveiling the fourth season’s latest trailer today as well as giving it a release date.
While not much is revealed from the trailer, there are some factoids that we can piece together. Due to the events of the Season 3 finale, Glimmer has now assumed the role of the Queen of the Rebellion and Catra has become the co-leader of the Evil Horde, both of whom are sporting new and stylish outfits. Stevenson also pointed out that most of the core cast of characters are going to have individual journeys that they will have to go on before coming to radical character shifts. Not much is known about what those journeys entail, but with the looming presence of Horde Prime coming to Etheria, maybe some allegiances will shift by the season’s end?
She-Ra and the Princesses of Power’s fourth season will stream on Netflix on November 5, 2019.
