The wait for Season 3 of Voltron: Legendary Defender is nearly over, as the seven-episode season hits Netflix August 4. After debuting a teaser reel at San Diego Comic-Con for both Seasons 3 and 4 (the latter will launch this fall, also a shorter season), a full trailer for Season 3 was released Tuesday morning.

The trailer focuses heavily on new villain Prince Lotor, who is ready to take over the galaxy with Zarkon gone -- and Voltron unable to form. Shiro, pilot of the Black Lion, is gone, and that means they can't form the defender of the universe. From the looks of the trailer, it's more bad news from there, and Shiro might not be the only pilot lost when all is said and done.

"In the wake of Zarkon’s defeat and Shiro’s disappearance, the paladins struggle to move forward with no one able to pilot the black lion or the ability to form Voltron. The team must quickly devise a plan as the ascension of Prince Lotor and his generals pulls the team into a perilous game of cat-and-mouse that tests their unity and abilities more than ever before," the press release reads.

Don't worry, it's not all doom and gloom -- there is an image of Voltron fully formed in the gallery below, after all.

Check out the trailer and a new gallery of stills from Voltron: Legendary Defender Season 3 below, and get ready for a binge watch this Friday!
