'Voltron: Legendary Defender': The Paladins Meet Someone From Lotor's Past in an Exclusive Clip

Voltron: Legendary Defender returns this Friday with a new season on Netflix, and ComicBook.com has an exclusive clip from the upcoming episodes.

When the previous season ended, Lotor had defeated Zarkon to become the new leader of the Galra Empire, solidifying his alliance with the Voltron Coalition. Now Lotor gets an unexpected visit from someone from his past and is forced to introduce the Voltron Force to none other than his governess, who is beaming with pride at the “Blood Emperor” that Lotor has become.

Check out the clip above.

ComicBook.com also spoke to Voltron: Legendary Defender showrunners Lauren Montgomery and Joaquim Dos Santos about the new season, which is one they said they’re particularly proud of.

“I hope people really enjoy the upcoming season,” Montgomery says. “I know we're really proud of where it ends up. I think there's gonna be a lot of questions answered in these last seven episodes of this arc, and I hope it resonates with them on some level.”

“Yeah, agreed,” adds Dos Santos. “We're super stoked that it's happening. And we're really, really proud of this one. We're proud of them all, but this one, in particular, it's got a bunch of really cool stuff coming up.”
