The first She-Ra and the Princesses of Power season 3 poster confirms it will release Aug. 2 on Netflix - and the show will have a panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Noelle Stevenson's series is inspired by the 1985 Filmation He-Man spinoff, and over the last two seasons has developed a strong reputation for the depth of its character focus. It was nominated for a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Kids & Family Programming.
She-Ra season 2 ended on something of a cliffhanger, with She-Ra, Glimmer and Bow discovering the meaning of the First Ones message. A mysterious First Ones base has been transmitting a signal that Adora translates to mean "Serenia, portal Mara." In the season finale, the Princesses of Power learned that Serenia refers to the Crimson Waste, where the First Ones based is located. Presumably season 3 will see She-Ra and her allies travel to the Crimson Waste in order to learn more - and will perhaps reveal why Mara, the last She-Ra, went rogue.
Taking to Twitter, DreamWorks has released an official poster confirming that She-Ra season 3 will be available on Netflix as soon as Aug. 2. What's more, the show will also have a dedicated panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con.
Netflix and Dreamworks seem to be releasing She-Ra seasons at an impressive rate. There were only five months between seasons 1 and 2, and now just four between seasons 2 and 3. This may, however, have an impact on the episode count; season 1 was 13 episodes in length, while season 2 had just seven. Hopefully season 3 will be a little longer.
The She-Ra poster is pretty light in terms of plot details, simply confirming that She-Ra will indeed be headed to the Crimson Waste - note the red ground she's standing on. In the 1985 animated series, the Crimson Waste was a desolate and rocky part of Etheria; it was Scorpia's base, and became the site of several Horde traps for the Princesses of Power. The reboot has created a much more sophisticated backstory for Etheria, so will presumably take a very different approach. It will be interesting to see whether or not She-Ra can discover a portal that takes her to Serenia, which was a powerful mystical realm that was vital to Etheria's magical balance.
Along with the release date, the exciting news here is that She-Ra will have a panel at SDCC 2019. There's no news yet on just who will be part of the panel, but it will presumably include a full trailer drop giving viewers a sense of just what to expect for season 3.
She-Ra and the Princesses of Power season 3 premieres Friday August 2 on Netflix.
