I think to me the key difference, regardless of how it ends, is who it can be traced to. Voltron had of ton of issues behind the scenes according to the showrunners while She-Ra is from start to finish being framed as Noelle Stevenson’s baby. Mattel has no say, DC writers have no say, this is a Noelle Stevenson joint. And as such, the buck stops with her.
Maybe. A creator taking firm control over their work can be problematic at times—see Protection from Editors. But having a solid vision can definitely be a good thing.
After three solid seasons, I think we can acknowledge that Noelle Stevenson is doing just fine with her creation.
I just finished watching the new season myself. :) I hope they make more; that was one intense ending.

Did you have a problem with season 4? I think it might have been my favorite, though it's hard to say because 2 and 3 were half length.
I think Glimmer went through a good arc, although the wedge between her and Adora felt a little bit much.. .at first. but then with Double Trouble AND Shadow Weaver, it made sense - she was isolated and resentful and very sad.
Catra being in HEAVY denial throughout Season 4 and just acting out and not really realising the impact of her statements was interesting. The fact that the Horde is so disorganised that no one even noticed Scorpia had gone before a major military deployment is telling
I don't consider 2 and 3 to be separate seasons. They were clearly meant to be in the same season together.
@Demetrios: I'm told that the final season has already been made; it merely waits to be aired. (And indeed, that the team has since moved on to their next projects, with this one complete.)
The main concern then is if they get a proper chance to promote it or if Mattel tries to rain on their parade with a trailer for MOTU Revelation. “Hey! Look over here! Anime He-Man! Teela! Skeletor!”
That I can't speak to; but She-Ra seems to have been pretty well-received, and it's the final season, so I feel little urge to worry, myself.
I was just responding, I believe, to Demetrios' hope that a new season would be made—it has been already! ^_^
Any news about when it'll air?
Season 2 aired in April, so probably around then, assuming 5 takes the same time as 4 as 2 did from 1.
Powerhouse promised we’d see the first of MOTU around April. My guess is we see it before then so Record of Grayskull War doesn’t rain on its parade.
It also gives Dreamworks 2-3 months from their January release on Netflix, Kipo.
I don't know if Dreamworks will necessarily give them that big of a gap. They also released Fast and Furious not even a month ago, and that's not stopping their upcoming release of Kipo. And that's not counting their other, more comedic shows as well.
She-Ra got a brand new series, and we're getting a new He-Man soon. Transformers and Turtles have been getting new shows constantly since the 80s, but there hasn't been a new G.I. Joe since Renegades in 2010. Thundercats got a reboot in 2011, and there's a new series coming out this year. Jem got a movie, but I don't see any hint of a new series. What other shows from the 80s are due for a reboot?

EDIT: Joking aside, one could make the case for Robotech, but the legal BS going on between that and Macross is best left alone.
Which is weird because Harmony Gold keeps pushing for a Robotech movie even though the internet keeps saying it's never gonna happen...

Orbots? Oh, you mean a remake of God Mars, right?
Robotech will never get remade given the licensing hubbub, and trying to remake Macross would involve recasting Mari Ijima, and woe be to whichever idol/singer lands that role and has to fill those shoes.
As for other shows to remake, realistically what’s left? Does the world really need a remake of Bravestarr? Maybe Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers.
@ Will Keaton, I would guess M.A.S.K.. Its one of the last big ones not remade yet and would be pretty easy to update.

On She-Ra and which character gets to swear.
Mermista swears like a sailor
Glimmer gets to swear while riding the bomb
"Ah FUCK!" boom

Catra's last name confirmed.
A 128-page graphic novel The Legend of the Fire Princess will be released Feb. 4.
Huh. I was wondering if that ever came out or if it was cancelled. Now we know.
based on the character designs it might be taking place before season 4.
Apparently Catra isn't amused by her last name...
