“She-Ra and the Princesses of Power” have fast become one of the most popular Originals on Netflix. With fast-paced releases, fans haven’t had long to wait to get their fill of Etheria. For those that have already binged the fourth season will be looking to season 5. We’re still waiting on news for that but we’re tracking the Netflix renewal status and release date for She-Ra and the Princesses of Power season 5.
As “She-Ra and the Princesses of Power” Season 1 dropped on Netflix last November, and Seasons 2 and 3 were released earlier this year, fans are used to getting new episodes of the animated series pretty often. With all 13 episodes of Season 4 now streaming on the platform, can viewers expect a Season 5 in the near future?
“[The show follows] an orphan named Adora (Aimee Carrero), who leaves behind her former life in the evil Horde when she discovers a magic sword that transforms her into the mythical warrior princess She-Ra,” the synopsis shares. “Along the way, she finds a new family in the Rebellion as she unites a group of magical princesses in the ultimate fight against evil.”
Noelle Stevenson, creator, executive producer and showrunner of the series, told Animation Magazine last year that she had “four arcs of 13 episodes” planned out which means — since Season 1 has 13 episodes, Season 2 has 7, Season 3 has 6 and Season 4 has 13 — three of those four arcs have been completed and released to fans.
RENEWED SEASON 5
We aren’t expecting the “pending” status to stay that way for very long. She-Ra and the Princesses of Power have already proven to be one of the most popular cartoon Originals, therefore, we’re fully expecting the series to return for a fifth season.
The creator and showrunner of the series, Noelle Stevenson, already discussed the future of the series with Animation Magazine in 2018. In the interview, Noelle Stevenson discussed the number of episodes and arcs she had planned for the series:
“When I first pitched the show, I approached it as if it had one season, but we now have four arcs of 13 episodes done. I had ideas for the big overall scheme for the show. The first thing I did was create a vision board, pulling inspiration from a variety of sources. I had the incredible luxury of working with a team of great writers. It was great to brainstorm and come up with this rich world in great detail. Get a lot of ideas and throw everything at the wall and see what sticks.”
We’re four seasons down and 39 episodes have been produced, meaning that She-Ra and the Princesses of Power are likely to conclude with season 5.
RELEASE DATE OF SEASON 5
The release of the fifth season will be dictated by the episode count. If Netflix intends to release the remaining thirteen episodes in one season, then we may not see the season 5 arrive until Summer 2020.
If the final story arc is split into two more seasons, then we could see the fifth season arrive as early as April 2020. Our speculation is based upon the releases of previous seasons when season 2 arrived in April 2019, and the third season arrived in August 2019.
We can expect to learn more soon!
