The Dragon Prince Creators Hint At Franchise Future After The Show Ends

The Dragon Prince Creators Hint At Franchise Future After The Show Ends

Exclusive: Creators Aaron Ehasz and Justin Richmond reveal they have big ideas for Xadia as they discuss the future of The Dragon Prince.

Creators Aaron Ehasz and Justin Richmond have hinted at potential future The Dragon Prince projects. The Dragon Prince was released in September 2018 to critical acclaim. It was quickly followed by seasons 2 and 3 in February and November 2019. The hit animation is a fantasy series that tells the story of a war between humans and the magical beings of Xadia. The Dragon Prince’s season 3 finale suggested that peace may be possible between humans, elves, and dragons but the final moments of “The Final Battle” suggest that evil still lurks within Xadia.

Following its season 3 conclusion, The Dragon Prince was renewed for a subsequent four seasons. In this announcement, Ehasz told fans that Netflix has renewed The Dragon Prince for “the whole saga.” This implies that The Dragon Prince would come to an end after season 7, leaving many to wonder if anything else would happen with the franchise after that point.

Creators Ehasz and Richmond commented on this during an interview with Screen Rant at San Diego Comic Con. While discussing the future of The Dragon Prince, the creators confirmed that season 7 will be the end of The Dragon Prince saga. Fortunately, Ehasz and Richmond went on to suggest that there is still more of Xadia’s story to be told, even if it doesn’t surround the current cast of characters. Read Ehasz and Richmond’s full quotes below:

Aaron Ehasz: Stories are complicated things. The Dragon Prince saga has a very specific endpoint at [season] 7. But also, we have a big story in our brains.

Justin Richmond: The world of Xadia will live no matter what. But, yes, there’s a definitive story.

Aaron Ehasz: The Dragon Prince saga goes to the end of season 7.

The Dragon Prince Season 4 Callum

After three years, fans are finally seeing the return of The Dragon Prince on Netflix in November of this year. Just a few weeks ago, several clips were released teasing the upcoming season showing new characters like Terry the Earthblood Elf. One clip has given further insight into season 3’s closing scene, as after Claudia (Racquel Belmonte) resurrects Viren (Jason Simpson), it’s revealed that he has been dead for two years, not two days as was previously implied. This plays into the reveal that The Dragon Prince season 4 will feature a significant time jump following the events of the season 3 finale, seeing an older Callum (Jack De Sena) take on the role of High Mage.

The series still has a long way to go before it reaches its conclusion as fans eagerly await the arrival of The Dragon Prince season 4. However, this news creates intrigue about what the future of The Dragon Prince might look like, whether it be another animated show set in Xadia or more novels exploring the vast universe created by Ehasz and Richmond. With several seasons still to be released over the next few years, it’s unlikely that fans will see more of this “big story” outside of Netflix’s The Dragon Prince any time soon.
