During the show’s Comic-Con@Home panel, the cast of Netflix’s The Dragon Prince revealed the show has been picked up for four more seasons!

Comic-Con@Home has been stacked with exciting announcement and reveals throughout the weekend, and Netflix’s The Dragon Prince had a big surprise of its own during its Friday panel: The animated series will become a saga, as the streaming service has picked up the show for four more seasons!

Although The Dragon Prince wrapped up some of its major storylines in season three — and hypothetically could have called it a day after that — co-creators Aaron Ehasz and Justin Richmond had seven seasons of ideas planned if the series continued to be picked up, and now it looks like the two can move forward with whatever they’ve envisioned for Callum, Rayla, and Ezran.

Ehasz made the announcement at the very end of The Dragon Prince‘s Comic-Con panel, wrapping up a Q&A during which the show’s future was a prevalent question. Other panelists included Richmond, Jack De Sena (Callum), Sasha Rojen (Ezran), Paula Burrows (Rayla), Racquel Belmonte (Claudia), Jesse Inocalla (Soren), Jason Simpson (Viren), and Erik Todd Dellums (Aaravos).

Following the panel, it was also revealed that each of the upcoming seasons will consist of nine episodes in total, and that work on season four has already begun. There’s no release date for the next installment currently, but after months of silence, it’s exciting to know the show has a future at Netflix at all.

It also looks like the world of Xadia will be moving beyond the streaming service, as the group also revealed graphic novels are planned for the franchise. In that sense, the series seems to be taking the same approach as Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra — and honestly, we’re all about it. The first graphic novel, Through the Moon, will arrive on October 6, telling a canon story that bridges the gap between seasons three and four.
