Netflix Stream TeamI've been singing the praises of the Netflix Original Series, VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER ever since I went behind the scenes at DreamWorks Animation back in early May.  While it was pretty obvious from the get-go (Playmates Toys' new action figures won't be out until 2017), it's now 100% official that the second season of VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER will be hitting Netflix later this fall. At San Diego Comic-Con International this afternoon, executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos, co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery and writer Tim Hedrick made it official, while joined by surprise guest Steven Yeun (THE WALKING DEAD), who voices Keith the pilot of the red lion.


Season 2 will pick up in the moments following the season one finale cliffhanger,  with viewers following Team Voltron in the wake of Haggar's disruption of their wormhole as they are scattered across the universe.

Additionally, fans who want to dig on that groovy, synth-driven, 80s-inspired soundtrack can do so right now! The season 1 soundtrack by Alex Geringas, Brad Breeck and Brian Parkhurst is available for download on iTunes.
