Of the six new shows, the biggest headline-grabber is no doubt that a reboot of He-Man spinoff She-Ra is coming to Netflix, by way acclaimed comic book creator Noelle Stevenson (Nimona and Lumberjanes). In the full breakdown by Variety, this new version of She-Ra is described as being "an epic and timely tale that celebrates female friendship and empowerment, led by a warrior princess tailor made for today." If the show does well enough, could it finally be the opening needed for a full Masters of the Universe reboot?
