The She-Ra and the Princesses of Power panel had some big surprises in store during its New York Comic Con panel on Sunday, including an unannounced screening of the Season 4 premiere, which drops on Netflix on Nov. 5. Fans were even more thrilled to hear that on Nov. 5, instead of just six or seven episodes (the length of Seasons 2 and 3), Season 4 will have 13 episodes. Feeling that NYCC-induced FOMO? Don't worry: Netflix dropped a teaser trailer, which you can watch above.
In addition, fans learned at the panel that there's a new (but familiar for OG She-Ra fans) character joining the cast this season. We know veeeeeery little about Double Trouble, but we do know they'll be an integral part of Catra's (AJ Michalka) rise in the Horde and her plans to defeat the Rebellion.
The forthcoming season will also feature another character stepping into a leadership role: Glimmer (Karen Fukuhara) has big shoes to fill in Moonbright, and her coronation is just around the corner. But there's no time for Glimmer to learn the ropes with the Horde advancing on Etheria to crush the Rebellion for good.
Season 4 sets the stage for some of creator Noelle Stevenson's favorite episodes of all time, and she went on to say at the panel that Season 4 is where the emotional arcs for many characters start to really bear fruit. Translation: You will laugh, you will scream, and reader, you will definitely cry. The Best Friend Squad has their work cut out for them, but Adora (Aimee Carrero), Glimmer, Bow (Marcus Scribner), and all the princesses have each others' backs.
She-Ra Season 4 will arrive on Nov. 5 on Netflix.
