The popular animated series The Dragon Prince is finally returning soon. Fans of the acclaimed show have been waiting since 2019 for new episodes, and the wait is almost over! The Dragon Prince season 4 has been confirmed for a November 2022 release.
We don’t know about the “Mystery of Aaravos” saga coming next, but we still can’t wait to see what the creators have planned.
Premiering back in 2018, The Dragon Prince became an instant success for Netflix, earning praise for its animation, vocal performances, storytelling, and more. The series is created by Aaron Ehasz and Justin Richmond. Ehasz previously worked as the head writer and executive producer on another acclaimed animated series, Avatar the Last Airbender.
The Dragon Prince season 4 release updates
We still don’t have an official release date for The Dragon Prince season 4, but Netflix announced that the fourth season would be arriving this November.
The Dragon Prince season 4 trailer
Netflix released the first trailer for the show recently, teasing the two-year time jump that will kick off the new season. If you want a better idea of what all of your favorite characters have been up to between books three and four, you might consider checking out the graphic novel Through the Moon, which is considered canon to the series.
A newly-released clip from the new season also helps flesh out the time skip.

The Dragon Prince season 4 synopsis
The Dragon Prince is divided into “books” rather than seasons. Season 4 is “Book Four: Earth” and subtitled “Mystery of Aaravos.” The fourth season is part of the series’ second saga, named for the Earth Primal.
Netflix has not released an official synopsis yet, but we know that the fourth season will have a two-year time jump bridging the gap between “Book Three: Sun” and “Book Four: Earth.”
In July 2021, the show’s co-creators spoke with Comic Book and teased a little of what fans could anticipate from the forthcoming season. When asked about the themes present in “Book Four,” this is what Aaron Ehasz had to say:
I will say this: Wouldn’t it be great if returning an egg to a mother that lost their egg or returning the baby dragon could cause world peace? Wouldn’t that be great? Well, it’s a step in the right direction, but the conflicts and complications of Xadia are deep, and I think you can probably speculate about different characters who have different levels of idealism and believe that change should come quickly. And I think the themes are the same. I think the hopes and dreams of our characters are the same, but the world will be revealed to be a bit more complicated than in the first three seasons.
The Dragon Prince season 4 episode count
The fourth season will consist of nine episodes in total.
The Dragon Prince season 5 renewal status
Netflix renewed the series through season 7, so the creators can tell their story to completion. Fans don’t have to stress about the show not getting renewed!
