A lot of hype had built on The Dragon Prince before its release thanks to creator Aaron Ehasz working being the head writer of Avatar: The Last Airbender. While it looked like the show as going to end with the third season, it looks like we’re going to be getting more of Callum, Rayla, and Ezran.
As announced during a Comic-Con@Home panel (via Polygon), Netflix has picked up The Dragon Prince for four more seasons, completing the originally planned saga. Each season is said to include nine episodes, with two more ‘eras’ being planned with two seasons each. We don’t have any official titles yet, but a 2019 panel for the show did confirm that the next book would be titled Earth.
We don’t know why this confirmation took so long, but it possibly has something to do with Avatar: The Last Airbender being one of the most-watched shows on Netflix right now. A huge chunk of Dragon Prince fans come from the ATLA fandom and seeing as Ehasz had worked on both shows, maybe the new Avatar fans have been checking TDP out as well.
Admittedly, The Dragon Prince is not a perfect show. I still find the animation kind of jarring whenever I come back to it, but you get used to it two episodes in. It also doesn’t have the same amount of time that ATLA had when it came to developing characters. Besides that, Ehasz has built another solid world, and each of the characters is written fantastically—even the villains.
We don’t know when Season 4 for the show comes out, but we know that work has already begun on it. For now, you can catch the first three seasons of The Dragon Prince on Netflix.
