The first season of Netflix's Voltron revival Legendary Defender turned into a surprise animated hit for the network, and we have a few ideas for what they should do when Season 2 drops.

We've put together a video looking into the challenges facing Voltron as it tries to avoid the sophomore slump. To help work out the kinks, we take a deep dive into the lessons the show could learn from fellow animated hits Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra. The first season was pretty great, and if they make some good decisions in Year Two, Voltron really has the potential to become a modern classic.

The creative team needs to make a concerted effort to enrich the world they've been building, bringing more depth to its supporting characters, shaking up the team-ups among the cast, and taking care to bring some true motivation to the show's major baddies. Hey, those awesome robo-battles can go a long way, but you can't lean on 'em too hard.

Season 2 of Voltron: Legendary Defender is set to drop on January 20 on Netflix.

Check out the video below and let us know what you think.
