The Dragon Prince is gearing up to return to Netflix with its highly anticipated fourth season, and has released its first poster to help celebrate! After the third season of Wonderstorm and Bardel Entertainment's original animated series came to an end, The Dragon Prince announced that it would not only be returning for a third season, but that Netflix has officially signed the series on for four more seasons. This will allow the team to tell their full seven saga long story, but it has yet to be fully revealed exactly how this second half of the series will be kicking off.
It was officially revealed earlier this year that The Dragon Prince Season 4 will have the subtitle of "Mystery of Aaravos" as the titular mysterious figure makes their move with the new episodes, but there's still much we don't know about what to expect. Fans have seen how influential the figure has been for the third season, but the first poster released for the fourth season teases that they will be pulling the strings behind a lot of what's next.

The Dragon Prince: Mystery of Aaravos currently does not have a set release date, but will be launching with Netflix some time this November. Series creators Aaron Ehasz and Justin Richmond spoke to ComicBook.com's Jamie Lovett last year about the progress on the new seasons and other projects they currently in the works. Ehasz opened up about the kinds of themes fans will get to see unfold in the fourth season:
"I will say this: Wouldn't it be great if returning an egg to a mother that lost their egg or returning the baby dragon could cause world peace?," Ehasz began. "Wouldn't that be great? Well, it's a step in the right direction, but the conflicts and complications of Xadia are deep, and I think you can probably speculate about different characters who have different levels of idealism and believe that change should come quickly."
