It’s hard to believe how long it’s been since new episodes of The Dragon Prince were last released. Prepare to gasp… it was November 2019! Despite the long wait, it was time well spent by everyone involved in the production of the show, but more on that later. First, just a quick refresher on who made the series, what it’s about, and where we left all of these characters last. The Dragon Prince was co-designed by Aaron Ehasz and Justin Richmond. Ehasz has a long history in animation and is the lead author of Avatar: The Last Airbenderas well as a writer and story editor futurama. However, Richmond comes to television from the games industry, having been best known for working for the Unexplored Series.
The series eventually follows half-brothers and human princes Callum and Ezran, and an elven assassin named Rayla, who unexpectedly join forces to protect the young dragon prince Zym. On their journeys to reunite Zym with his mother, they find themselves at the center of the 1,000-year conflict between the kingdoms of humans and their realm’s magical creatures, Xadia. Season 3 ended with our main trio achieving their goal of bringing Zym back while ending long-running feuds between some of the kingdoms. Now we’re finally getting really close to finding out what happens next in the series when Season 4 releases in November!

After months of teasers, the first official Season 4 trailer is finally here, showing us just how much has changed in Xadia since we last visited! We now know that two years have passed since the decisive battle in which humans, elves and dragons combined their forces to defeat Viren’s army. These new allies have worked hard to maintain the new harmony between their kingdoms, but trouble is brewing again. Season 4 looks set to be a dramatic and action-packed affair for all of our favorite characters in Xadia, especially now with a bigger focus on the mysterious Aaravos.
Who is in the cast of The Dragon Prince?
Between all the different kingdoms of Xadia, The Dragon Prince has built a massive cast of characters over the first three seasons, many if not all of whom will appear in Season 4. Fittingly, there’s also a massive cast of incredible voice actors who bring these characters to life.
Belong to the main cast Jack de Sena as Callum, Paula Burrows as Rayla, Sascha Röjen as Ezran, Jason Simpson as a virus Rachel Belmonte as Claudia, Jesse Inocalla as Soren and Erik Todd Dellums as Aaravos.
The Dragon Prince’s 7 Season Plan
Although the release of Season 4 is on the horizon, fans of The Dragon Prince can rest even happier knowing there are many more episodes to come! For those who don’t know, in July 2020, Netflix announced the amazing news that the series was not only renewed for Season 4, but also for Seasons 5, 6, and 7. This would allow the creators to follow any storylines they have designed in their ambitious fantasy saga.
For now, however, season 4 seems to be a significant step forward in this story as it is subtitled The Mystery of Aaravos. Aaravos is an ancient Startouch elf trapped in a magic mirror that influenced the actions of the series antagonist, Viren. Season 4 will likely expand on the character’s untold backstory and plans for Xadia. In addition, Season 4 was also marked as Book 4: Earth. This follows the trend of previous seasons being specifically named after “sources” on the show moon, heavenand Sun.
How many episodes will The Dragon Prince Season 4 have?
The Dragon Prince Season 4 will have a total of nine episodes, each expected to last between 24 and 33 minutes. The last three seasons have followed the same pattern so we can expect it to continue. Season 4 episode titles have also been announced. Read on for the full episode list:
Episode 1: “Day of Rebirth”
Episode 2: “Fallen Stars”
Episode 3: “Breathtaking”
Episode 4: “Through the Looking Glass”
Episode 5: “The Great Gates”
Episode 6: “The Dragon Forest”
Episode 7: “Below the Surface”
Episode 8: “Rex Igneous”
Episode 9: “Escape from the Umber Gate”
So what is the story of The Dragon Prince Season 4?
Ezran leaps from what is seen in the trailer as the king of Katolis and proves incredibly successful as the elves and dragons have remained allies of the humans. This new season will surely continue to focus on that storyline, as Aaravos’ expanded presence will no doubt make him a dangerous magical force to be reckoned with. Everyone must reunite to stop him.
Callum is devastated because Rayla left after the fight, but now she’s back with fascinating new gear and abilities. These two are a fan favorite couple so it will be very interesting to see what brings them back together after years apart and if the rift in their relationship can be mend. There’s also the thing with Viren, Claudia and Soren, aka a divided family. Claudia resurrected her father Viren, but the spell only lasts 30 days, prompting her to ask Aaravos for help. Soren, on the other hand, redeemed himself by betraying his family and refusing to help with their despicable plans. He may still be a member of the Crown Guard, working to protect Ezran.
All in all, Season 4 will clearly have many exciting storylines, as well as some compelling setups for the series’ intriguingly projected future.
