Callum’s adventure will continue into a seventh season
The Dragon Prince is set to continue for a 7th season. However, the fans are reminded that this will be the final chapter in the series. This gives the fans time to prepare for the ending of the series, which has been teased by the showrunners as being darker than the previous episodes.
Ehasz revealed to CBR that “We feel the story is going darker, but you have to imagine an arc that is going from [Season] Four through seven Part of it that I think is hard to view from this point is that Season 4 had to have its own complete story, but it also had to be the act one for the bigger arc.”
“What act ones have to do is try to reestablish the world and reset the stage, where the characters are, and what their emotional bases are. I think in terms of things unfolding and the pace in which they unfold, that speeds up as you get further into the arc.”
It is possible that The Dragon Prince may continue beyond season 7, with either a sequel, prequel or spinoff. Ehasz previously worked with Justin Richmond as co-creator. Share This Article how “We have a big story in our brains” and that “The world of Xadia will love no matter what.”

The Wonderstorm team have teased that the video game (release TBA) will include both existing and new characters from the TV series, as well as being canonical to the Netflix show – meaning that the game could introduce our next protagonist, or at least the new villain after Aaravos.
