Here we are in the future — and Steven Universe is officially getting another season and a brand new title sequence.
The news was announced Friday during the show's panel at New York Comic Con, which featured live performances from cast members Estelle (Garnet), Michaela Dietz (Amethyst), and Deedee Magno-Hall (Pearl), as well as discussion with creator Rebecca Sugar.
Steven Universe Season 6, titled Steven Universe Future, will follow an older, wiser Steven after the events of Steven Universe: The Movie, which premiered last month. The feature-length musical picked up two years after the Season 5 finale, featuring a 16-year-old Steven who has mended the relationship between the Diamonds of Homeworld and the Crystal Gems of Earth but discovers that his work is far from finished when a new foe arrives in Beach City.
The new season will see Steven turning inward, according to Cartoon Network, which released this description: "After saving the universe, Steven is still at it, tying up every loose end. But as he runs out of other people's problems to solve, he'll finally have to face his own."
During the NYCC panel, a brand new intro sequence was unveiled and, for the first time, the show won't begin with its classic "We Are the Crystal Gems" theme song. Instead, the new title sequence borrows from the movie soundtrack; Steven (Zach Callison) and the Gems sing, "Here we are in the future, and it's bright," as Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl, and plenty more fan-favorites are seen in Beach City. Watch the full sequence in the video above.
Cartoon Network has yet to announce a release date for the new season.
