The rest of this article is going to bring you all the known and unknown information related to the upcoming Season 4 of The Dragon Prince. You’re going to find out about its potential release date this year, whether there is a trailer, what the story will probably be about, and much more about this amazing animated series.
The Dragon Prince Season 4 release date
The Dragon Prince was conceived by Aaron Ehasz, who previously worked on Avatar: The Last Airbender. It is based on computer animation instead of cartoons and uses cel shading and a reduced frame rate to adapt the figures and their movements more closely to the look of classic 2D animations and to create a comic look.
The series was produced by Wonderstorm and Bardel Entertainment. The series was first announced on July 10, 2018. A trailer appeared a short time later at San Diego Comic-Con International. The series was first broadcast on September 14, 2018 on the video-on-demand service provider Netflix with 9 episodes in several languages. A second season was announced at New York Comic Con for 2019. This was released on February 15, 2019. The third season was released on November 22, 2019.
In 2020, during Comic-Con’s virtual event, it was revealed that The Dragon Prince had been renewed for a fourth season. But not only that, it was also revealed that the show had been picked up for a total of seven seasons, meaning that the story would be concluded in its entirety. This was, of course, excellent news and it made fans extremely happy. So, what about the release dates?
From what we know at this moment, Season 4 of The Dragon Prince is going to be released in late 2022; we don’t have a precise release date just now. As for seasons five and beyond, we don’t have any news on the release dates for these seasons.
The Dragon Prince Season 4 trailer
You now know all the facts and our thoughts related to The Dragon Prince Season 4, and while you might have thought otherwise, there is currently no trailer for the upcoming fourth season of The Dragon Prince. We do know that the season is going to air sometime in 2022, but we do not know how advanced the production is at the moment, so it might be a couple of months before we actually see a trailer, depending on when Netflix plans to release the show.
As we have said, The Dragon Prince was a very likely candidate for a return from the very beginning. The series was enormously popular when it debuted on Netflix and it has a large fandom; on top of that, the creators behind the series have revealed that there are plans to create seven seasons in total, since the narrative concept is divided into seven books. Luckily enough, Netflix has been very kind to the idea itself.
Taking into account everything we’ve said, a trailer for The Dragon Prince Season 4 is going to premiere soon. It might be weeks or a couple of months, but we assume that we are going to see at least a teaser before the end of summer this year, unless, of course, Netflix decides to push back the season’s premiere.

The Dragon Prince Season 4 cas
It’s still too early for us to discuss the upcoming fourth season of The Dragon Prince in terms of cast and characters, simply because it’s an original story and we don’t know all of the characters. But, knowing that the earlier seasons had a more or less fixed main cast, we really don’t expect to see too many changes in the structure of season four, when it actually arrives on Netflix. Now, the main characters that have appeared in seasons one through three, likely to return for the fourth season, include:
|Character||English Voice Actor|
|Aaravos||Erik Todd Dellums|
|Callum||Jack De Sena|

If, as planned, the subsequent seasons do get produced, they will also be aired on Netflix internationally.

The Dragon Prince is, thus, getting several additional seasons after Season 4, but we don’t really know when each of them is going to be released, as Netflix never releases its streaming plans so far ahead.
