Illustration for article titled Shiro May Have Met His Fate in This Exclusive Clip From iVoltron: Legendary Defender/i

When we last saw our brave paladins in Voltron: Legendary Defender, they’d been scattered off to regions unknown after their battle with Zarkon. But it turns out that being separated and flung away to distant parts of the galaxy may come second to the immediate problem of “being eaten by alien wildlife” for at least one of them.


We’re proud to debut an exclusive clip from the next season of Voltron: Legendary Defender, which sees Keith on a desperate mission to find Shiro—wounded from the team’s dispersal and his encounter with Haggar in season one—before the wildlife on the planet they’ve crash landed on can render him an ex-Paladin.

This isn’t the first time that the show has dropped hints toward a dire fate for Shiro—whose character was named “Sven” in the English adaptation of the original 1980s Voltron series—like the one he suffered in GoLion, the 1980s anime adapted into Voltron: Defender of the Universe (where the character was named “Sven”). But it’s interesting to see where the show’s going to take the plotline about the wounds he’s suffered at the hands of Galra next; if this clip is anything to go by, it’s going to be dogging Shiro for a good while yet. Hopefully he can avoid the fate he met in the original GoLion, because this take on Shiro has been pretty fun to watch so far.

Voltron: Legendary Defender returns to Netflix for another season tomorrow, January 20.
