Here's what everything we know about Netflix's She-Ra and the Princesses of Power season 4, from the series' premiere date to story details. Now that all six episodes of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power season 3 are available on Netflix, fans may be wondering what's next for Adora and the princesses of Etheria.
Netflix and DreamWorks TV's animated series is a reboot of the Masters of the Universe character introduced in the 80s, focusing on the legendary She-Ra. In She-Ra and the Princesses of Power season 3, Adora, Glimmer and Bow tracked the First Ones signal to the center of the Crimson Waste, a portion of Etheria thought to be uninhabitable - but they find plenty of potential foes in the region, including the formidable Huntara (Geena Davis). There, Adora gains some answers about her destiny, though she's left with even more questions. Meanwhile, Hordak, Entrapta and Catra are continuing to work on his portal machine and executing his evil plan.
The Evil Horde and the Princess Alliance face off in season 3 and fans of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power are no doubt eager for more of their adventures. So, for those that have finished watching season 3, here's everything we know about She-Ra and the Princesses of Power season 4.
Netflix Hasn't Renewed She-Ra And the Princesses of Power For Season 4 (Yet)
Netflix is notorious for keeping fans in the dark about the future of their favorite shows. In the past, Netflix has announced new seasons of She-Ra at the same time as their premiere dates. Before She-Ra season 2, showrunner Noelle Stevenson said the writers had four arcs of 13 episodes planned out, which may be an indication Netflix already gave them the green light for all four arcs. With season 3 wrapping up the second arc of 13 episodes, it's possible there are still many seasons of She-Ra ahead. But, officially, that remains to be seen.
When Will She-Ra and the Princesses of Power Season 4 Release?
With five months between seasons 1 and 2, and four between 2 and 3, it's likely She-Ra season 4 will arrive in December 2019 or January 2020. It'll likely depend on when the episodes are ready and how many will be included in the season. Season 1 was 13 episodes, while seasons 2 and 3 contain seven and six respectively, likely accounting for the short wait times between seasons. If Netflix keeps up with the shorter seasons, it seems likely season 4 will premiere sometime this winter.
What Will She-Ra and the Princesses of Power Season 4 Story Be?
SPOILERS for She-Ra and the Princesses of Power season 3 ahead
In She-Ra season 3, it was revealed the Hordak who had invaded Etheria is actually a clone of Hordak Prime that had been banished there and launched an invasion in order to prove himself. His goal of creating a portal was all with the intention of contacting Hordak Prime so the Horde's full forces could finally conquer Etheria. Although Angella was successful in closing the portal, leaving Etheria in the empty dimension of Despondos that Mara pulled it into, a signal got out. Hordak Prime is seen receiving the signal at the very end of season 3. That means Hordak Prime will no doubt become the major threat to She-Ra and Etheria going forward.
Of course, Adora will still need to learn more about her destiny as She-Ra and the legacy Mara left behind. Adora now knows why Mara trapped Etheria in Despondos, hoping to protect the planet from the Horde. But there's still plenty Adora and the audience don't know about She-Ra and Mara. Thankfully, Adora still has her friends and fellow princesses to not only learn more about She-Ra but eventually take on Hordak Prime and the rest of the Horde.
