So this is a thing. And it’s surprised me that I’ve been able to find six examples to make this list. But the series finale of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power provided the last piece of the puzzle and I finally finished this article. It’s a sign of the times. There have been multiple instances where a cartoon show’s series finale finally allows certain characters to come out of the closet and be true to their gay, lesbian and/or bisexual selves.
I think it’s great! But it’s still weird that it’s only allowed to happen in the series finale, right?
Some day, we are going to get a show where the main character and their love interest are both openly queer. Or are both somewhere on the LGBTQ+ spectrum. It’s gonna happen. Some day we’re going to get a lesbian Disney Princess. Some day, a big fancy company is going to purchase the rights to my own self-published queer comic, Gamer Girl & Vixen, and turn it into a popular, award-winning show! And no, that’s not the only reason I’m doing this list! I just wanted to shamelessly self-promote for a little bit.
Join me after the jump for the phenomenon that is LGBTQ+ cartoon couples allowed to come out and be proud at the very, very, very end of the series. SPOILERS for the end of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power.
I am as surprised as the next person at how much I love She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. But it is a damn good show, one of my absolute favorites on all of Netflix. I am in love with how well-crafted, how well-adapted this show has been these past few years, with some truly glorious cartoon adventures.
The fifth and final season will be upon us in only a matter of days.
Oh man, that was a fun trailer! I loved the slow, somber remix of the theme song. I loved the anguish in the characters. This is gonna be a battle! This is gonna be a good finale! I have very high hopes!
The final season of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power arrives on May 15!
The next season of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is right around the corner! That means we’ll get two seasons (or three, technically) in a single year! How exciting!
She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is one of my favorite shows on TV…or, technically, Netflix. It’s well-written, well-plotted and the characters are all fascinating and fun. It’s possibly the best revival of an old cartoon. And the new season promises some actual story progression with some big changes!
Needless to say, I’m excited and can’t wait! The new episodes arrive on Nov. 5!
The fourth season of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power will arrive on Netflix on Nov. 5! That’s less than a month away! And it’s going to be a full 13 episode season, instead of the half-seasons we got with 2 and 3. I’m very excited!
Here’s a quick teaser, released at New York Comic Con.
Not too much to see yet, but there are some big changes in store! Glimmer is now queen. Catra co-leads the Horde. All sorts of fun is afoot! I can’t wait! I love this show! And you should definitely be watching, if you’re not already.
It’s a pretty slow Monday in stuff I have ready to post on the internet, so I think I’m going to take this moment to remind you all that season 3 of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is out on Netflix!
It’s a great season and a great show!
Also out is the third season of GLOW, which is another amazing show! Seriously, two of my favorite shows these days came out with their third seasons within a week of each other! I’m thrilled. And the next season of BoJack Horseman should be available soon.
Honestly, TV is great these days! I’m a very happy geek.
