It’s hard to believe how long it’s been since new episodes of The dragon prince were last released. Prepare to gasp…it was November 2019! Despite the long wait, the time was well spent for everyone involved in the production of the show, but more on that later. First, a quick refresher on who made the series, what it’s about, and where we last left all these characters. The dragon prince was co-created by Aaron Ehaszo and Justin Richmond. Ehasz has been involved in animation for a long time, as the lead writer of Avatar: The Last Airbenderas well as a writer and story editor on futurama. Richmond, however, comes to TV from the gaming industry, having worked most on the not mapped series.
The series eventually follows half-brothers and human princes, Callum and Ezran, and an elven killer named Rayla, who unexpectedly join forces to protect the young dragon prince, Zym. On their journeys to reunite Zym with his mother, they find themselves at the center of the 1,000-year conflict between the human kingdoms and the magical creatures of their realm, Xadia. The third season ended with our main trio achieving their goal of returning Zym, while also ending longstanding feuds between some of the kingdoms. Now we’re finally really close to finding out what happens next in the series when Season 4 comes out in November!

After months of teasers, the first official trailer for Season 4 is finally here, showing us just how much has changed in Xadia since we were last there! We now know that it has been two years since the climax of the battle when humans, elves and dragons joined forces to defeat Viren’s army. These new allies have worked hard to maintain the new harmony between their kingdoms, but problems arise again. Season 4 looks like it’s going to be a dramatic and action-packed affair for all of our favorite characters in Xadia, especially now with a greater focus on the mysterious Aaravos.
Who is in the cast of The Dragon Prince?
Between all the different kingdoms of Xadia, The dragon prince has built up a huge ensemble of characters during its first three seasons, and many, if not all, will appear in Season 4. Matchingly, there’s also a huge cast of incredible voice actors who bring these characters to life.
The main cast includes: Jack De Sena as Callum, Paula Burrows as Rayla, Sasha Rojen as Ezran, Jason Simpson as Viren, Raquel Belmonte as Claudia, Jesse Inocalla as Soren, and Erik Todd Dellums as Aaravos.
The Dragon Prince’s 7 Season Plan
Although the release of season 4 is coming, fans of The dragon prince can rest even happier knowing there are many more episodes to come! For those who don’t know, in July 2020, Netflix announced the great news that it had renewed the series not only for Season 4, but also for Seasons 5, 6 and 7. This would allow the creators to pursue all the storylines they put in their minds. ambitious fantasy saga.
For now, however, Season 4 seems like a significant step forward in this story as it has been subtitled “The Mystery of Aaravos”. Aaravos is an old Startouch Elf trapped in a magic mirror that influenced the actions of the series antagonist, Viren. Season 4 will likely expand on the character’s unknown backstory and his plans for Xadia. In addition, season 4 has also been labeled Book 4: Earth. This follows the trend of previous seasons named after “primal resources” in the show, specifically Moon, Skyand Sun.
How many episodes will The Dragon Prince season 4 have?
The dragon prince Season 4 will have a total of nine episodes, each likely from about 24 to 33 minutes. The previous three seasons have followed the same pattern, so we can assume it will continue the same way. Season 4 episode titles have also been revealed. Read on for the full list of episodes:
Episode 1: “Anniversary Again”
Episode 2: “Fallen Stars”
Episode 3: “Breathtaking”
Episode 4: “Through the Looking Glass”
Episode 5: “The Great Gates”
Episode 6: “The Drakewood”
Episode 7: “Under the Surface”
Episode 8: “Rex Igneous”
Episode 9: “Escape From Umber Tor”
So, what’s the story of The Dragon Prince season 4?
As King of Katolis, jumping from what’s in the trailer, Ezran’s reign proves to be incredibly successful as the elves and dragons have remained allies with humans. This new season will definitely continue to focus on this storyline, as Aaravos’ expanded presence will undoubtedly make him a dangerous magical force to be reckoned with. Everyone will have to get back together to stop him.
Callum is devastated because Rayla left after the fight, but she’s now back with some intriguing new gear and abilities. These two are a fan favorite couple so it will be very interesting to see what brings them back together after years apart and if the rift in their relationship can be closed. There is also the matter of Viren, Claudia and Soren, aka a divided family. Claudia has resurrected her father Viren, but the spell will only work for 30 days, prompting them to seek Aaravos for help. Soren, on the other hand, has redeemed himself by betraying his family and refusing to assist in their vile schemes. He may still be a member of the Crown Guard, which works to protect Ezran.
All in all, Season 4 will clearly feature plenty of exciting storylines, as well as some compelling setups for the show’s intriguingly plotted future.
