Here’s some outstandingly good news for the fans (and there were a lot, including the staff of io9—we had it on our list of 2018's top TV shows) of Netflix’s She-Ra and the Princesses of Power: The show will be back with season two in just a few short months and we’ll be meeting lots of new characters. For the Honor of Grayskull!


According to a brand-new teaser that popped up today, season two will arrive on Netflix on April 26. Check it out:

In a new interview, showrunner Noelle Stevenson dropped a few hints to Newsarama about season two, noting that “a few more princesses and princess-like characters” will turn up (although, as we already knew, not He-Man), as well as a little bit about what to expect from the story:

There’s more drama. There’s mythology. We start to get more into the legend of She-Ra and the legend of the First Ones. We do meet some of our characters’ families. We see some of our characters like Catra, working their way up the ladder. We have a few, weird out-there kind of episodes – a little bit more experimental. We have one episode where it’s essentially just a D&D campaign.

Ok, that Dungeons & Dragons campaign episode sounds super rad. Check out the full interview with Stevenson for even more tidbits about the show, though of course she doesn’t give too much away.

All will be revealed when She-Ra and the Princesses of Power returns to Netflix on April 26.

I am honestly wondering how much further they’ll take the... implication, shall we say, that Catra and/or Adora had a more than friendly interest in the other. Netflix has been real gunshy with the LGBTQ stuff on their shows, but...

...look, when Catra’s in an clearly queer-coded outfit (pink and purple male-styled suit complete with an undone bowtie), they’re dancing amid trading barbs, and Catra freakin’ dips Adora, we’re kiiiiinda stretching what can be covered by “subtext what subtext oops how did that get in there”. Here’s to hoping the creators can tell the story they want and include the elements that will support it.

now kiiiiiiiiiisssssssss...
