Season Three is the third season of Voltron: Legendary Defender and contains 7 episodes total. The season's corresponding Comic is Volume 3. It does not have a released soundtrack.
Season three was slated to air September 2017, but was announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2017 to officially air August 4, 2017. It was teased previously at WonderCon 2017 with an exclusive trailer; the WonderCon panel also featured a clip of Lotor with the cow bought in the episode Space Mall edited over his face for April Fool's to conceal his appearance. The first episode. "Changing of the Guard", premiered ahead of schedule exclusively to attendees of the Voltron panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2017.
Originally produced as a longer season containing Season Four, the episodes were split into two seasons on the request of Netflix in order to release Voltron content more often.
The season marks the beginning of the split-season model.
The season featured two exclusive teaser trailers without official release, one at WonderCon 2017 and one at San Diego Comic-Con 2017.
The Netflix preview for the season aired prior to the official announcement of the season's air date at San Diego Comic-Con, and also revealed Lotor's face earlier than staff intended. His character design was supposed to be revealed when the panel aired the episode Changing of the Guard.
Upon watching all the end credits of The Legend Begins on Netflix, the official trailer for Season Four automatically played and confirmed its release date as October 13, 2017.
