The seventh season of Voltron ended on a triumphant note, with the team defeating Sendak and the Earth joining the fight against the Galra. There’s still Haggar to deal with and a mysterious Altean found in the robot Voltron fought against. Thankfully Voltron fans won’t have to wait too long for answers about that.
The season is now THIS WEEK and we’ve got a brand new trailer!
Yep, Voltron just did the Macross missile spam! And we’re got another trailer here!
It’s not much but we do get some new shots of the Paladins in action! The biggest thing to notice are shots of Haggar from what seem to be her Honerva days. Or are they? She seems to be in the Castle Ship, but that was already blown up so this must be a flashback… right? Below we also have some new images!
There’s also another image in this video tweet.
We also previously got a very brief teaser!

At the NYCC 2018 panel we didn’t learn much about the new season, although executive producer Lauren Montgomery did mention that the characters would be “finishing the job” of defeating the Galra and saving the entire universe. It was also mentioned by writer Josh Hamilton we would learn what Haggar’s personal motivation is.
We also have a look at the exclusive NYCC poster, which features several characters we have yet to meet, including one who looks almost exactly like Chip from Vehicle Voltron!
Here’s a close up on that Chip looking character.
We can also see the Paladins are sporting new uniforms (which are very Star Trek like) that will most likely debut in season 8!
Voltron Season 8 Release Date

Voltron Season 8 Trailer
Below we’ve got a Voltron season 8 teaser trailer.
Voltron Season 8 Episodes
It’s been confirmed that season 8 is the final season of Voltron which means it’ll have thirteen episodes. The series was original picked up for 78 episodes at the start which means, counting the opening “movie” as three episodes, this season will finish out that 78 episode order.

There’s quite a bit to wrap up in these final episodes but we know the team behind Voltron probably has something amazing up their sleeve. After all, they’ve known the general outline of their story from the start so everything’s been leading to this.
