We caught up with the showrunners of Netflix's Voltron: Legendary Defender at WonderCon to talk about where the series is going next in their upcoming third season, which was officially announced at the convention. Could Prince Lotor be on the way?

Showrunners Joaquim dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery opened up about slowly rolling out information on the show's villains and taking a balanced approach to revealing that intel to the viewers (and yeah, you're not crazy, that might have been Prince Lotor). Keeping the focus on the heroes and making creative decisions allowed them to continue in evolving those characters while keeping them interesting.

They also said they set out to make a show that takes itself as seriously as it needs to while still being able to have some jokes and humor along the way. Season 2 allowed more opportunities for humor, once the characters had been established across the first season.
