She-Ra and the Princesses of Power will brave their very last battles when the animated series launches its fifth — and now final — season on Friday, May 15, Netflix has announced.
But worry not, fans will have closure when She-Ra & Co. power down. “I do feel very lucky because we knew from the very beginning what our episode order was, so we got to tailor the story very specifically to how long the show was gonna be,” showrunner Noelle Stevenson told EW.com. “[The series] was tailored to be 52 episodes, the length that it is, and that’s a real blessing for a storyteller because it means everything happens when it’s meant to happen.”
