The Dragon Prince Season 3 is coming … eventually. After Wonderstorm, the studio behind Netflix’s hit fantasy cartoon series, confirmed the renewal at a WonderCon panel in March, San Diego Comic Con came and went without an official release date announcement. But with New York Comic-Con — and another Dragon Prince panel — just a few weeks away, we may finally learn when Callum, Rayla, Ezran, and the rest of the gang will return. (Spoiler: the Dragon Prince Season 3 release date is sometime “this year.”)
In the meantime, here’s a refresher on everything we know about Dragon Prince Season 3’s release date, cast, and plot based on Inverse’s previous interviews with the show’s creators, the recent SDCC panel, and more.
Warning: Spoilers for The Dragon Prince Season 2 ahead.
What did we learn about The Dragon Prince Season 3 at SDCC 2019?
A lot. While we didn’t get a release date, the show’s creators did reveal some key details about Dragon Prince Season 3, including it’s title, “Sun,” and how it fits into the studio’s broader series arc.
Aside from that, here’s all the other info we learned at the Dragon Prince San Diego Comic Con panel:
- Callum will explore his new magic abilities after Season 2 and Season 3 “touch on other forms of magic,” according to voice actor Jack DeSena
- Season 3 will feature “Elf Callum,” which is a reversal of the “human Rayla” running gag in previous seasons where the elf character impersonates a human to disguise herself
- Amaya and Gren will apparently reunite (phew!)
- We’ll learn more about Rayla’s backstory, according to voice actor Paula Burrows, who said Season 3 was “very impactful for me.”
- We’ll find out how the dragon egg survived in the time before The Dragon Prince
- Harrow is totally, officially, completely dead. However, we may see more of him in flashbacks during Season 3, according to co-creator Justin Richmond
When Is The Dragon Prince Season 3 Release Date?
We don’t have an official release date yet, and The Dragon Prince Season 3 seems to be bucking the trends of Seasons 1 and 2. We initially predicted it could arrive in mid-July, but clearly that’s not the plan. However, series co-creator Aaron Ehasz did confirmed to Inverse that it’s coming “this year.” They also have a set release date internally, but they can’t reveal it yet.
Is There a Trailer for The Dragon Prince Season 3?
Not yet, but it’s likely only a matter of time. The Season 2 trailer dropped on February 1, just two weeks before the official season release date. So you can probably expect a Season 3 trailer sometime in late 2019, though maybe we’ll see an official teaser drop during NYCC.
In the meantime, here’s a scene from what feels like early Season 3 that was performed live at San Diego Comic-Con.
What’s the Plot of The Dragon Prince Season 3?
We don’t know much, but here’s an official synopsis released alongside the renewal announcement:
Season 3 finds Rayla and Callum finally at the cusp of entering Xadia, while young Ezran returns home to take his place on the throne. Meanwhile, Lord Viren begins to realize the influence and power of his new ally – the mysterious Startouch elf, Aaravos. As several storylines unfold in big ways, this season will be massively epic.
Beyond that, we’re really just speculating, though there’s plenty of directions Season 3 could take. One exciting possibility, however, is that The Dragon Prince could feature even more flashbacks like the one we saw in Season 2, which introduced Callum and Ezran’s mother as a powerful warrior queen and revealed the cause of her death.
Season 3 could push the plot of the Dragon Prince forward while also using flashbacks to expand the show’s world in a variety of exciting new ways.
The Dragon Prince Seasons 1 and 2 are streaming now on Netflix.
