Voltron: Legendary Defenders upcoming season 4 debut this October is fastly approaching, and as such, new footage has been released in the form of a trailer.

Despite how things transpired in the previous season, the trailer shows the Voltron paladins in a good place despite having to adapt to the team’s new dynamic. It also appears that the team has realized they won’t be able to take on the Galra empire on their own and will enlist members of the Voltron Coalition.

Ahead of the season premiere and the show’s New York Comic Con panel in October, EW spoke with showrunners Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery to discuss the show’s evolution:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: In the new trailer, we see Team Voltron is devoting more effort to strengthening the coalition. Can you tease how the coalition becomes more important in the coming season? 
JOAQUIM DOS SANTOS: I think it’s a bit of an evolution overall for the series. While at the beginning, it was literally just the five paladins and Allura and Coran soloing this entire thing, we’ve been building outwards. Now, it’s growing and it’s kind of getting to this fever pitch. This whole time Lotor is forwarding his plans. So, we’re sort of seeing the next evolution of the series where the legend of Voltron has gone out into the universe now and it’s amassing an army, a coalition against Lotor.

Shiro returned at the end of season 3, but he’s no longer manning the Black Lion. How are the paladins adjusting to this new lineup? 
DOS SANTOS: That’s the cool thing about this show. At this point, we’ve taken the original show and sort of internalized it and processed it and brought in as much as we felt this current iteration needed. Now it’s running on its own and it’s evolving in its own ways, so those character dynamics and how the characters deal with these new positions in this team dynamic and their relationships — all that stuff gets to kind of be the big surprise. We know Voltron is going to be there. We know all that stuff is going to happen, but now, how do the characters react to these new team dynamics? We don’t want to give any of that stuff away, obviously, but there are definitely repercussions to all of those things happening.
