The Dragon Prince is returning soon to Netflix with its highly anticipated 4th season. This computer animated fantasy series first began streaming on Netflix on September 14, 2018. The Dragon Prince is set in a fantasy world on the continent of Xadia, which has been at war with the Human Kingdom for centuries. At the peak of this conflict, human King Harrow of Katolis (Luc Roderique) kills the Dragon king, Avizandum, and presumably kills his offspring, as well.

However, when the elf Rayla (Paula Barrows) attempts to assassinate Harrow’s sons, half-brothers Callum (Jack De Sena) and Ezran (Sasha Rojen) make a startling discovery that the infant dragon prince, Azymondias (De Sena), survived. The three embark on a dangerous mission to return Azymondias, nicknamed Zym, back to Xadia. Their trek could be the only hope of ending the conflict between humans and magical creatures and restoring the peace once more.

The Dragon Prince has received very positive reviews and boasts a perfect 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Fans of the fantasy genre who enjoy such works as Avatar: The Last Airbender will especially be drawn to this series. While it’s technically classified as a children’s animated series, it truly holds appeal for audiences of all ages. It is a mesmerizing epic animated fantasy that gently touches on darker themes, boasts diversity, and features several top-notch heroines. The series has already been renewed for four more seasons. Here’s everything we know about The Dragon Prince season 4 so far.

The Dragon Prince season 4 release window

So far, an exact release date for The Dragon Prince season 4 has not been provided. However, during the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con, Netflix unveiled a first look at The Dragon Prince‘s 4th season. The official clip confirms that the season is coming to Netflix in November of 2022, but it remains to be seen what exact day it will land on.

Season 4 of The Dragon Prince signifies a new arc in the series. This is part of the reason why there was 3-year gap between season 3 and season 4, as Netflix plots out the future of The Dragon Prince saga. As a result, the series will be titled The Dragon Prince: Mystery of Aaravos, as of its 4th season.

The name change signifies a shifting focus on the mysterious character, Aaravos (Erk Todd Dellums). Aaravos is an imprisoned elf mage whom King Harrow’s advisor, Viren (Jason Simpson), made a secret alliance with. He is a master of dark magic who communicates to Viren via a magic mirror and a caterpillar-like creature. However, big changes are coming soon to his character, as season 3 concluded with his caterpillar entering metamorphosis.

The Dragon Prince season 4 clip and time skip

On July 21st, 2022, Netflix released an official clip of The Dragon Prince season 4. The clip is titled “Resurrection” and picks up right where The Dragon Prince season 3 left off. Viren and his army were defeated at the end of season 3 and Viren was killed in a fall. However, his daughter, Claudia (Racquel Belmonte) set out to revive him. The season 4 clip sees the aftermath of his revival. However, it also drops a startling reveal—it took 2 years for Viren to be fully revived.

Hence, The Dragon Prince season 4 starts off with a 2-year time jump. In the clip, we see that Aaravos’s metamorphosis seems to be nearing completion. We also get a glimpse of an older Callum, who has changed quite noticeably, and even has a new haircut. It is also revealed that Callum has taken on the position of the king’s High Mage. Check out the season 4 clip below:

The Dragon Prince season 4 teaser trailer

Netflix released The Dragon Prince‘s first official season 4 teaser trailer on September 22, 2022. Check out the trailer below:

The teaser allows us to see more of the time skip playing out, as it begins with Ezran being reunited with Zym. The two reveal that they haven’t seen each other for 2 years. However, there is evidence that this isn’t exactly a light-hearted reunion. The stakes seem higher than ever as the teaser promises a return to magic, and a return to “the fight.” It also sees Callum sadly holding Rayla’s sword, making some fans speculate that something may have happened to her on her mission to find Viren. The teaser ends with Aaravos’ ominous warning, “My return to his world is inevitable.”

The Dragon Prince season 4 plot

A two-year time jump means that quite a lot has changed in The Dragon Prince. Not only is Viren revived and Callum a Mage, but young Ezran has assumed the throne and now reigns as the King of Katolis. Rayla though, is still gone, having departed a year before the events of season 4 on a secret mission to find Viren, whom she suspects is still living. Meanwhile, the Sunfire elves are rising up, seeking to rebuild their people and kingdom. A new type of Elf, the Earthblood elves, will also be appearing in The Dragon Prince season 4 and one is in a romantic relationship with Claudia.

However, Claudia’s woes aren’t over, as the major storyline of season 4 is Aaravos’ dark plans and strategies coming together in a very noticeable way. The fact is, Viren’s revival is not final. Aaravos helped Claudia bring Viren back, but he will only have 30-days to live unless Aaravos gets his payment. His demand is that Claudia and Viren must find his unknown prison and free him before the 30 days are up. As Ezran and the elves rebuild their respective kingdom, it will fall on Callum and Rayla to ultimately stop Viren and Claudia, and prevent Aaravos from being freed.

Practically every character who survived in season 3 will be back for The Dragon Prince season 4. De Sana, Burrows, and Rojen are returning to voice the lead trio Callum, Rayla, and Ezran.

Of course, Amaya will also have the loyal Commander Gren (Adrian Petriw) by her side, who serves as her interpreter.

De Sana, who doubled as the voice of Zym in seasons 1-3, will also likely be reprising the role for season 4. Soren (Jesse Iocalla) the son of Viren will also be returning, and may have matured quite a bit from the 18-year-old boastful boy he used to be. Prince Kasef (Vincent Tong) of Neolandia will be returning and may still be seeking war on Xandia and Katolis. Ashleica Edmond will also be returning as Kazi, the nonbinary Sunfire elf who translated for Amaya previously.

Ian James Corlett will be returning as Ibis, a Skywing Elf Mage, as will Peter Kelamis as the eccentric ex-pirate, Captain Villads. The Dragon Prince season 4 will featured returns of Moonshadow Elf, Runaan (Jonathan Holmes), Runaan’s husband, Ethari (Vincent Gale), Ellis (Nahanni Mitchel), Ellis’ father (Michael Daingerfield), Moonshadow Elf illusionist Lujanne (Ellie King), former Dragon king, Sol Regem (Adrian Hough), and Ezran’s bodygaurd, Corvus (Omari Newton).
