We had a shortened third season for the series, but that was only to make sure that Voltron Season 4 would arrive a little earlier than anticipated, which is great news for everyone involved! Fans may be worried that the original 78 episodes were cut down but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos, co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery spoke about how Netflix wants to give fans more Voltron episodes more often.
With seven episodes in season three and six episodes in season four, it looks like they just split up what was going to be season three into two chunks. Dos Santos and Montgomery stated that the season three finale won’t be as big as season two’s so presumably season four’s premiere won’t have to pick up as major a cliffhanger.
With season four being what fans originally thought the back half of season three was going to be, we can also guess season four will have a big climatic cliffhanger.

Voltron Season 4 Release Date
Voltron Season 4 will arrive on Friday, October 13 on Netflix. Who says that’s an unlucky day, right?
We have no word on whether other seasons will be split up like this or season five might go back to the thirteen episode format. Stay tuned to for more information on Voltron: Legendary Defender season four as we hear it.
More Voltron all the time is the best news Shamus could ever hear. Hopefully Kaltenecker will be along for the ride. Follow him on Twitter!
