Kyle’s Choice

Early this morning, Netflix dropped the final installment of Dreamworks’ Trollhunters. The second season of the series opened with Jim trapped in the Darklands. As Jim looked for baby Enrique, who had been taken by Gunmar the Black, Claire, Toby, and Blinky tried to find a way to help Jim return from the Darklands. Eventually both were successful in their missions. Meanwhile, Steve and Eli teamed up to figure out what secret Jim and the others were hiding. As the gang tried to get on with their normal lives, trouble was brewing in Trollmarket. There was a spy in their midst who was actively working to eliminate the Trollhunters and help Gunmar get into the city. The gang was able to hold off Gunmar long enough to evacuate Trollmarket, but in the process, Claire had to wield the Shadow Staff longer than she should have, and this will likely lead to some unfortunate side effects this season. Also, Gunmar had managed to resurrect Morgana, and together they are planning to bring about the Eternal Night, covering the world in darkness forever.

Like the previous season, season 3 is comprised of 13 episodes. However, Emile Hirsch takes over the role of Jim from the late Anton Yelchin. Also joining the cast for this final season are Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) & Diego Luna (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), playing two mysterious new students who unknowingly come to the aid of the Trollhunters. In this final installment, the Trollhunters must find a way to stop Gunmar and Morgana, and in order to do so, they seek the help of the legendary wizard Merlin (David Bradley, Game of Thrones, The Strain).

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and look forward to seeing what this final season holds. Anton Yelchin was an amazing actor and brought such personality to Jim – I hope Emile Hirsch can do the same. That said, I’m also excited to see how Steve and Eli will fit in as the latest members of the gang – it was so much fun seeing them finally met Blinky and AAARRRGGGHH!!! last season!

Season 3 of Trollhunters marks the end of the first chapter of Guillermo del Toro’s larger Tales of Arcadia trilogy, all set in the fictional suburb of Arcadia. The story will continue in the new series 3 Below, coming to Netflix later this year, followed by Wizards in 2019. I’m curious to see if we will get a glimpse into the next chapter during this final season of Trollhunters.

Check out the final season of this great show now on Netflix!

I’ll also be watching/recording Steve Martin and Martin Short: An Evening You Will Forget For The Rest of Your Life.
