For the past seven seasons, Netflix's Voltron: Legendary Defender has been a bright beacon of animated goodness with the dynamic retro robots helping to solidify the streaming giants' reputation for original crossover programming.

Earlier this year at SDCC, executive producers Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery sadly announced that after the 13 Earth-bound episodes of Season 7 (aired August 10), there are just 13 chapters of Season 8 to be revealed before the series comes to a conclusion.


Today, inside the Hammerstein Ballroom at New York Comic Con, Dreamworks TV, the showrunners, and assembled voice talent released a new teaser for the final season, which will air in its entirety on December 14. These last episodes focus on the Paladins after they've saved the Earth, and their mission to prevent Honerva from setting off her most devastating plan ever. It’s a rocketing race against a ticking clock as the entire Voltron Coalition unites from the far corners of the galaxy to defend the universe once and for all.
