Netflix' giant robo reboot, Voltron: Legendary Defender is primed to stomp into your weekend with the latest six-episode Season Five run just launched on the streaming service yesterday.

Executive producers Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery are still firing a sweet salvo of classic Voltron storylines and endearing characters from the original series’ iconic run and now we know when the next seven-chapter batch of outer space adventures will drop... June 15!

SYFY WIRE tracked down cast and crew members Jeremy Shada, Josh Keaton, design supervisor Christine Bian, and executive producers Dos Santos and Montgomery at Emerald City Comic Con on Thursday to get the full scoop on the new season and hear hints of what's to come.

Listen in as the gang chats about how Lotor fits into the equation for Season Five, can our heroes trust him and will there be an alliance?, color symbolism in the animated sci-fi series, respecting fans' love of the seminal show, the evolution of the Paladins, and Prince Lotor's motivations driving into this summer's sixth season.
