The Plot

*SPOILERS FOR SEASON TWO*

Picking up where we left off the show will deal with the aftermath of Kaos’ successful plan to free Strykore. Once freed Strykore had turned Spyro evil and now an underling for Strykore evil schemes. It was revealed at the very end of the season that Headmaster Eon shares the same mark on his forehead as Koas, suggesting the two are related… How will the heroes of Skylander Academy save Spyro and defeat the evil Strykore?

How many episodes this season?

While it hasn’t been confirmed as of yet how many episodes will air for season three, going by the previous two seasons we could expect up to 13 episodes each with a runtime for about 24 or 25 minutes, the season opener may follow up on the previous seasons with a run time of around 40 minutes, and with the events of last season being left on the cliffhanger that extra run time may just be needed!


Trailer

While there isn’t a trailer or teaser available just yet, below is the trailer for season one in case anyone out there is interested in starting the show!


Can we expect season four?

Definitely. Even though a 4th season hasn’t been announced the series is immensely popular with the fans and it is unlikely Activision Blizzard will want that train to stop anytime soon. Another factor in play is the multiple story threads that are yet to conclude and unless they can find a conclusion in season three for these stories then you better believe we’ll be seeing the Skylanders again soon.
