With The Dragon Prince video game undergoing development of its own, the drama has been able to gain a lot of traction and critical acclaim in its way, receiving Emmy awards for being an outstanding children’s animated program.

With such a great reputation, it is not difficult to assume that the renewal of season 4 did not take much time. The animated fantasy was renewed, not only for season 4 but till 7, at the virtual Comic-Con in 2020.

According to What’s on Netflix, each new season will consist of nine episodes, so there will be 63 new episodes of The Dragon Prince.

Although Netflix took an exorbitant step by ordering a vast amount of episodes from the show, there have been no significant updates on the advancement of the show from Netflix or the creators of the show, which augmented people’s frustration. However, in February 2021, an official post acknowledged the communities’ frustration saying:

“Our team has been working hard since the full Saga was greenlit to bring you the next phase of The Dragon Prince with care, passion and creativity. While the pandemic has impacted the process at every level, the reality is that productions of this scale always take a lot of time. We’re writing the story and scripts, assembling the production team and developing other new, exciting areas of Xadia for you to explore. Although we can’t give you a date for Season 4 at this point, we want you to know that the new seasons will be worth the wait!”

In addition to this, a December update mentioned how seasons 4 to 6 will mark a distinctively new phase of the show, Phase 2, as they have called it, while season 7 will be quite separate from the two phases. They affirmed, “We’re now following that same development pattern for seasons 4, 5, and 6—which we kicked off as soon as the series was renewed in 2020—and are spending a similar amount of time upfront to make sure we get the story arc for Phase 2 just right.”

The April 2022 update stated that scripts for all seasons had been written, along with well-articulate dialogues.

With that said, the trailer for The Dragon Prince season 4 was dropped at NYCC. It will be officially released on Netflix on November 3rd, 2022.

What is the synopsis of The Dragon Prince season 4?

*spoiler alert*

In season 3 of The Dragon Prince, we see the possibilities of a different future shaping up just in time to be changed by a seemingly hackneyed incident. For instance, the demise of Been was a sure thing if it wasn’t for his daughter Claudia who brought him back to life two days later. Season 3 also observes the friendship between humans and elves rejuvenated.

With season 3 emphasizing the exorbitant cocoon on the wall, Season 4 will possibly unravel the power of the creature once it enters metamorphosis. Not only that, but Season 4 will also emphasize how and why Viren, Claudia, and Aaravos are a grave threat.

According to What’s on Netflix, “The relationship between Callum and Rayla will be even more fun to explore next season after finally admitting their love for each other.”

However, there is so much more to discuss than The Dragon Prince season 4. We have just touched the surface. But sometimes, knowing the tip of the iceberg is only better than going deep into the blues knowing the iceberg until it’s November 3, 2022.
