She-Ra and the Princesses of Power final season release date revealed

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power final seasonThe fifth and final season of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power will arrive on Netflix next May. Adora and the princesses will face one last battle for the fate of their world.

Netflix has announced the release date of May 15 as well as two posters for the epic, animated series created by Noelle Stevenson. The series is a reboot of the 1980s cartoon and it premiered in November 18. What followed were four seasons not only of imaginative fantasy adventures but also of  diverse, well-rounded characters, complex relationships, and the exploration of profound themes such as friendship, loyalty, love, and courage.

The fourth season ended with a massive cliffhanger and with several characters caught in important crossroads – Adora having shattered the magical sword that transformed her into She-Ra, Glimmer and Catra held captive in the ship of Horde Prime, and the fate of Etheria (and the rest of the universe) hanging in the balance. How the fifth season will resolve all these threads while remaining true to the characters audiences have come to love will be a journey well worth watching.

According to an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Stevenson had always planned for the series to be 52 episodes long so everything has gone according to her plans, despite the story evolving over the years.

Here is the official plot description for the season:

“In season 5, the ruthless Horde Prime has arrived and without the Sword of Protection and She-Ra, the Rebellion are facing their toughest challenge yet. In this epic conclusion unexpected adversaries are confronted and relationships are tested, broken and changed forever. Will Adora and the Princesses of Power be able to save their planet? Or will the universe succumb to the evil might of Horde Prime before love can conquer hate?”

When asked about what the show may offer to audiences in this time of the coronavirus crisis, Stevenson told EW:

“I think it’s a great show to watch to both deal with your own feelings about the world, and appreciate them through a world that is very optimistic and does believe in redemption, forgiveness, and love. We try to be as sincere about that stuff as possible without letting it ever be cheesy or provide easy solutions. For us it is trying to look at our role in the world and how to be good, be strong, be brave like the characters are? I think it’s a great watch for anyone who needs to watch some magical princesses fight each for awhile, and also for people who are struggling with confusion, fear, and those messy feelings. Hopefully you find an outlet for those feelings here, and some comfort from them.”
