Season one of She-Ra and the Princesses of Powerfound showrunner Noelle Stevenson boldly paying homage to the original '80s cartoon while changing up a few key pieces to bring it firmly into the modern day.
That meant we got an amped up version of the Adora vs. Catra rivalry, one with a richer backstory that prominently features their childhood being raised together in the Dark Force, which only helped build the tension and stakes when Catra stays with the Horde while Adora joins the Rebellion.
The season one finale gave us an epic battle between the pair, but one that could only be completed with the help of Adora's friends and fellow princesses. Teamwork makes the dream work to save Bright Moon, you know? (As does a giant rainbow wave of power.)
When season two drops on Netflix on April 26, we'll see Adora firmly at the head of the reunited Princess Alliance as she continues her quest to figure out who she truly is, where she came from, and how she can fully own her She-Ra powers.
In an exclusive clip from the season premiere, above, Adora and the princesses find themselves fighting off Horde bots that Catra has sent to attack them. Their goal is to set up a kill switch that will wipe out the bots, and the fierce ladies succeed in stopping the bots once they work together. But that won't be enough to stop Catra from her goal of taking over Etheria. She's relishing in her new position as Hordak's second-in-command of the Horde, which we get a clear glimpse of when we find out what's happened to Shadow Weaver -- and how much Catra still despises her.
Season two of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power premieres on Netflix on April 26.
