Showrunner and creator Noelle Stevenson announced on Thursday that the critically acclaimed animated series will return on April 26.
The original voice cast, which includes Aimee Carrero (Adora/She-Ra), Karen Fukuhara (Glimmer), AJ Michalka (Catra), and Marcus Scribner (Bow), will return to continue defending the land of Etheria.
Stevenson created the Netflix series with executive producer Chuck Austen. He also served as producer and director for Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe.
She-Ra and the Princesses of Power from DreamWorks Animation is a spinoff of the popular 1980s animated TV series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and a reboot of the 1985 animated series She-Ra: Princess of Power.

The creators kept her famous twin brother He-Man out of the reboot, which debuted last November, so that Adora’s origin story can stand on its own.
The show, which leans more progressive and inclusive, has also featured LGBTQ characters and gender-bending scenes.
The orphan Adora, who is a member of the evil Horde, finds a sword that turns her into the warrior princess She-Ra. She gathers and leads a resistance group of magical princesses called the Rebellion to fight the Horde and protect Etheria.
