Netflix has confirmed the return of the Masters of the Universe Revelation Series for Season 2 dubbed Revolution
The ending of the Masters of the Universe Netflix Season 1 left a huge cliffhanger and an opening for another season and today Netlfix officially confirmed Season 2! We got some indications over the last couple months that this could be a possibility with the latest coming from the yo_tengo_el_poder IG account as he posted, “Y mañana… ¡noticias!” which translates to “And tomorrow… news!” We were thinking that this will be the announcement of the return of the Masters of the Universe Revelation series to Netflix and we were right, but this was not a difficult guess! And now we know Masters of the Universe Revolution Netflix Season 2 has been officially confirmed and dubbed ‘Revolution‘!
Going as far back as April, 29. 2022, Mark Hammill gave us a clue as to what might be coming as he tweeted with a Friday and Saturday to-do list that reads:
“Voice this guy all day” along with an image of Skeletor and of him in the recording studio and more text for his Saturday to-do list which was, “Rest my voice all day.”Masters of the Universe: Revelation – Mark Hamill Confirms Season 2?
Season 2 Confirmed! Masters of the Universe Revolution
According to Yo Tengo El Poder instagram page, Season 2 is confirmed! They wrote ” Segunda temporada de Masters of the Universe. Después de la Revelación… ¡La Revolución!” This translated into English means “Second season of Masters of the Universe. After the Revelation… The Revolution!”
According to Deadline.com, they also confirm that:
Masters of the Universe: Revelation, Kevin Smith’s successor to the cult 1983–1985 animated series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, is getting a second season. At its Geeked Week event Wednesday, Netflix announced the followup installment of the animated series, Masters of the Universe: Revolution, from Mattel Television and Powerhouse Animation.
Masters of the Universe: Revolution is described as the next epic chapter in the battle for Eternia. It is a standalone story that takes place after the events in Revelation. Masters of the Universe: Revolution is an all-new story that brings the focus to He-Man vs. Skeletor “like you’ve never seen them before,” per Netflix. It’s technology versus magic as He-Man and the heroic warriors face the forces of Skeletor and a deadly threat to the Planet.
No cast is being announced yet. Mark Hamill, who voiced Skeletor in Revelation, already teased his involvement in Season 2. Chris Wood voices He-Man. Smith executive produces with Rob David, Ted Biaselli, Christopher Keenan and Frederic Soulie. Mattel Television is producing, with Powerhouse Animation as the animation studio.‘Masters Of the Universe: Revelation’ Gets He-Man Vs. Skeletor Season 2: Netflix – Deadline
Masters of the Universe Revelation Reception
We are honestly shocked that the Revelation Series is getting another go given the lack luster audience scores on Rotten Tomatoes for Parts 1 and 2 but maybe this is why is it getting renewed! Kevin Smith’s Masters of the Universe: Revelation was hugely polarizing as this series was beloved by Critics, giving Part 1 and Part 2 scores of 92% and 92% respectively but the audience score is way down at 38% and 40% respectively. MOTU fans did not hesitate to blast the show (and Kevin Smith for that matter) at every opportunity. We don’t know what goes into renewing a series on Netflix but there has to be demand for another season and if we know anything about the TV business, Parts 1 and 2 must have had off the charts viewing despite the backlash.
What Can We Expect from Season 2?
To know what to expect, we need to rehash what happened at the end of Part 2! Here is a short rundown but we have more questions than answers:
- Did Evil-Lyn Renounced Her Magic?
- At the end of Part 2, Evil-Lyn returns Zalesia, which we are assuming is the place she grew up based on the context from Part 1. In a surprising gesture (and moving scene), she leaves her staff behind planted in the ground. Given that her wand staff channels her power, does this mean that she also left her powers behind?
- What is Teela’s Status as the Sorceress?
- During the series, they let on that the Sorceress was completely tied to Castle Grayskull and thus could not leave so we have an evolution in the MOTU lore where and Teela had changed how that position works. She is seen in the palace during Andra’s promotion and she can function outside of Castle Grayskull but the jury is out if she can wield all of her powers. We’ll have to wait for Season 2 to see how this plays out but it’s cool to know that we can potentially see more of Teela as most of the action in this series happens outside of Castle Grayskull.
- Skeletor’s Demise or Transformation?
- During the climatic battle between He-Man and Skeletor, He-Man proclaimed “It’s not about us” which is a huge hint that things are changing accord to the lore, which is what the Revelation Series is all about! Despite Kevin Smith saying that the series was a continuation of the Filmation cartoon from the 80’s, the Revelation Series proves that it is rewriting MOTU lore and people aren’t going to continually stay in the same positions they’ve been in. They get with the times, people! WE know that Evil-Lyn’s fate is up in the air, Teela became the Sorceress but a new kind of Sorceress that can leave Grayskull willy nilly, Andra becomes the new Man-At-Arms, and Skeletor is left in a world he doesn’t quite understand. Angry that he didn’t help to defeat He-Man, Skeletor seeks out the only people he can rely on. He busts into the Motherboard cult and tries to usurp power from Tri-Klops and Trap Jaw, but this leads to Skeletor angrily attacks the Motherboard statue, attempting to blow it to pieces as Tri-Klops and Trap Jaw refuse to align with him
- What is the Status of Motherboard?
- As Skeletor tries to attack the Motherboard statue, it begins to glow and open to reveal a mechanical creature that has a feminine appearance. Tri-Klops and Trap Jaw hold Skeletor as Motherboard infects him with a virus.
Going along with how normal beings turn into part machine, this act will turn Skeletor into a cyborg but the Motherboard juice directly injected injected right into him so we are unsure what will happen next.
- Is the Horde and Princess of Power Making Their Revelation Debut?
- Blasting the door WIDE OPEN for a continuation of the Revelation Series, the mechanical creature’s displays the insignia of the Horde, which is the main villain of the 1985 She-Ra and the Princess of Power series. With this revelation (pun intended) She-Ra HAS TO BE part of the next series. Furthermore, in the Revelation prequel comic, Hordak made an appearance, albeit in flashback form but to see the Horde symbol with his face on it at the end of Part 2 was simply amazing! If you recall, in the original She-Ra Filmation series Hordak, like Skeletor, was never conclusively defeated, which poses a major threat to Eternia and this alone would be the main reason to have She-Ra star in Season 2. With Evil-Lyn on her journey and Skeletor indisposed, this would put the major focus of series on She-Ra and Hordak, which would be a welcomed change.
More PoP Masterverse Figures on the Way?
With the recent reveal of She-Ra, Hordak and Catra from the Masterverse line, we hope that the latest season of Masters of the Universe Revelation is a smash hit that will bring more Princess of Power figures into the line. In fact, we got word from our inside Toy Habits Source that Frosta will be coming to the Masterverse line in the future so we hope that this season of Revelation is a success!
