As for what comes next for Skeletor after becoming a Master of the Universe, "He becomes what we call in the [writer's] room, Skelegod. Something he's dreamed about for 40 years, but you gotta be careful what you wish for, kids. Kids, I cannot wait for you folks to see the next five episodes."
Hamill added to this mystery during the special Masters of the Universe: Revelation after show, Revelations, released by Netflix, "What people should expect is Skeletor absolutely obsessed with obtaining his goals. Those don't change." So while these aren't particularly meaty teases, it does promise we'll be seeing a lot more of Skeletor in the next phase of the series.
