The highly-anticipated Netflix anime series based on Dota 2 called Dragon’s Blood is returning for a third season, and we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about it.

Following news of several Netflix series based on games like Assassin’s Creed, Resident Evil, and Devil May Cry, it was announced back in February 2021 that Netflix would also be getting an animated series based on Valve’s wildly popular franchise Dota.

Dota 2 is a MOBA game that was originally released back in 2013, and has gone on to become one of the largest games in the world; tens of millions of viewers tune in to watch The International championship each year.

While the first two seasons of Dota: Dragon’s Blood are already on Netflix, you might want to watch the trailer for the third season to see what’s coming in the final iteration of the series.

The official trailer below shows off the gorgeous anime-inspired art style featured in Dota: Dragon’s Blood, as well as some epic dragon-slaying action and a preview of Davion, Invoker, Terrorblade, and Mirana’s storylines.

Dota: Dragon’s Blood plot

Dragon’s Blood tells the story of Davion, a renowned Dragon Knight devoted to wiping the Scourge from the face of the world. After encountering a powerful and ancient eldwurm, Davion becomes tangled up in events far bigger than he could have ever imagined.

It’s not just Davion that Dota fans can look forward to, as the series also heavily features Mirana, Terrorblade, Lina, Luna, and even Invoker. All of these characters are on secret missions of their own that will have a big impact on the Dragon Knight as well as Slyrak’s story.

Titled as the the Beginning of the End, it is safe to say that all the mysteries looming about Terrorblade, Davion, Slyrak, Mirana, and the Invoker will be resolved in the final Book 3 of the series.

Considering the first and second season only features eight episodes each, we can assume that Robert’s third season of Dota: Dragon’s Blood on Netflix will also feature eight episodes.

“Fans will love how we’ve imagined the Dota 2 universe and woven together an epic, emotional, and adult-oriented story about some of their favorite characters,” said Ashley Edward Miller, who serves as showrunner and producer.

“The cinematic animation, acting, and music are simply next level and I’m grateful to Valve for supporting our creative ambitions.”
