When is The Dragon Prince Season 4 returning? The first three seasons of The Dragon Prince were released back to back just within two years. For the first time, the audiences have to wait for a new season for so long. The unique storyline of the animated series took the internet by storm when it debuted back in 2019. Since then, the show has brewed a huge fan base.
The Dragon Prince is the story of the prince half-brothers Callum and Ezran, who come across an infant dragon Prince called Azymondias. The two are accompanied by Rayla, the elf. While the princes take care of Azymondias, they must also resolve a thousand-year-old conflict between the human race and the magical beings that live on the lands of Xadia. Hence, their struggles and adventures make up the plot of the show. So, when is the fourth season finally returning? Let’s find out.
The Dragon Prince Season 4: Renewal Plans
It’s good news for all the Dragon Prince fans this year. At the virtual Comic-Con 2020 panel, the co-creator of Dragon Prince, Aaron Ehasz, made the most optimistic announcement of the year. He revealed that Netflix has officially renewed the series for its “entire saga.”
For those of you who are unaware of the concept of the saga, it refers to a planned seven-season arc. Yes, Netflix has decided to go in for a seven-season project this time. The showrunners Ehasz and Justin Richmond also mentioned that Dragon Prince Season 4 would be named “Earth.” The new chapter will inaugurate two other seasons of the saga titled “The Dragon Prince: Name Withheld.”
After this announcement, fans went crazy over social media. They started trending the hashtag #giveusthesaga. For now, the saga is still going through the production process, and the Dragon Prince Season 4 is next in line for this saga. Once the fourth installment is completed, there might not be such long gaps between the upcoming seasons.
The Dragon Prince Season 4: Release Date
After the announcement of the saga in Comic-con, the makers of the show went underground. No news of a release date was ever heard since then. Later, in February 2021, an official blog post was published on Dragonprince.com. The post talked about the hardships of working during a pandemic. “We’re writing the story and scripts, assembling the production team, and developing other new, exciting areas of Xadia for you to explore,” the post read.
It was also mentioned that the makers, for now, would not be able to give a solid release date for a fourth season. Assuming that the showrunners started working on the project at the time of the comic-con announcement, it looks like the production might be completed by now. If that’s the case, The Dragon Prince Season 4 will likely release by the end of 2021.
