Netflix has declared the premiere date for one of its most controversial Original series from 2021 titled Masters of the Universe. The He-Man re-boot caught a lot of flack when it was initially released but that hasn’t stopped a second series from being commissioned.
Directed by Kevin Smith, the second season is set to have five episodes of about half an hour each and will debut on 23rd November 2021.
Season one, titled Masters of the Universe: Revelation, saw the battle between He-Man and Skeletor. The first season was supposed to drive in immense nostalgia, having been picked off from where the 1980s series ended.
However, it was highly criticised and faced truckloads of controversy upon release due to the creators killing off He-Man. Fans were utterly shocked and terribly disappointed at the turn of events.
Some of them were angry at how He-Man was removed from his own story and the show focused a lot on Teela’s resentment and the apparent abundance of an emotional barrage.
The second season of the show is set to see the war for Eternia still ensue. Skeletor is in possession of the Sword of Power and the Heroes of Eternia must join forces t fight against all evil.
Netflix has promised a powerful and action-high epic conclusion to the series.
The cast includes Lena Headey as Evil-Lyn, Mark Hamill as Skeletor and Alicia Silverstone as Queen Marlena. They will be joined by Justin Long and Jason Mewes as Roboto and Stinkor respectively.
The music composer of the show, Bear McCreary has said that the second part will have the best narratives and action. He also urged the audience to not overlook this season.
Will season two help redeem the mistakes of season one? Only time will tell.
