Season 6 of Spirit Riding Free has just dropped on Netflix with another six episodes. Once again, the show ends on a big cliffhanger meaning that more episodes are likely on the way. Here’s what we know about season 7 of the show!

The series that’s based on the Oscar-winning Dreamworks animated movie of the same name has been airing on Netflix since May 2017. The series is set during the 19th century in a small town and follows a young girl called Lucky and her horse friend.

The latest season of Spirit Riding Free dropped on Netflix on August 17th. As with other Dreamworks shows on Netflix, they drop on the service at a remarkable pace. Here’s when each season has dropped so far.

Season Number Number of Episodes Release Date
Season 1 6 May 5th, 2017
Season 2 7 September 8th, 2017
Season 3 7 November 17th, 2017
Season 4 6 March 16th, 2018
Season 5 7 May 11th, 2018
Season 6 6 August 17th, 2018

Will there be a season 7?

There’s been no confirmation of Spirit Riding Free coming back for season 7 by any of the cast or official social media accounts for the show just yet. That’s not uncommon though as we typically know when new seasons come to Netflix just shortly before they drop. We’ve reached out to a number of cast members to see if they can confirm the existence of season 7.

If you got to the end of season 6, you’ll know the show ended on quite a big cliffhanger. Butch is holding Lucky and her dad hostage as they discuss “unfinished business”. The credits then roll. There has to be a season 7 right!?

How many seasons will the show go on for?

Quite a few rumors are circulating saying that there’ll be a total of 8 seasons for the show adding up to 52 episodes in total. At the moment, we’re only 39 episodes in. We weren’t able to verify this but would be in line with many other Dreamworks series on Netflix in terms of episode numbers. For example, Voltron: Legendary Defenders is ending after season 8.

Of course, that’s just speculation at the moment and if we hear more, we’ll let you know.

When will season 7 be on Netflix?

Given the release schedule of previous seasons, you won’t have long to wait. We’re currently expecting season 7 to come to Netflix by the end of 2018 possibly in either November or December 2018. If the rumors above are true, we’d then get season 8 sometime in early 2019. We’ll update this article once we have something more concrete.
