Voltron: Legendary Defender is coming back for another season. Following the hit first season of the Netflix and DreamWorks Animation series, executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos, co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery and writer Tim Hedrick opened their panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday by thrilling fans with confirmation that the show will, not surprisingly, be back for a second season in late 2016.

Joined by surprise guest Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead), who voices Keith the pilot of the Red Lion, panel attendees were treated to behind-the-scenes stories, the filmmakers’ favorite scenes from Season 1 — you guessed it, the Pidge reveal —  and a sneak peek of what promises to be an epic second season. Picking up in the moments following the Season 1 finale cliffhanger, viewers will follow Team Voltron in the wake of Haggar‘s disruption of their wormhole as they are scattered across the universe.
