Hello,

consulting the Zap2it site I found out that this animation serie is composed by 3 seasons, and not only by 2.
I saw that the serie page is locked and I can't add a new season, but the only action I could do was to shift season 2 in season 3 as it should be.

Now it will be necessary create a new season 2 with the real episodes in it.

Could you unlock the serie or some admin could proceed?

Of course not. You didn´t provide any Sources and Zap2it isn´t one. We only list Shows original aired first in Country of Origin. The Fact that is locked shows me that maybe someone already has tried adding a third Season and bring the correct Order in a Muddle.

I referred to Zap2it because of in this topic:

viewtopic.php?f=41&t=61155

due to my request on how to access to gracenote (one of the site sources can refer to but it can be accessed under payment if I get it) Mistywing explained to me that:

"Note that you can access some of Gracenote through Zap2It".

So at least someone who can access to site sources could check if this serie has a third season?

Anyway please note that every site around the net says that 80's Voltron serie has 3 season, from wikipedia to any site in which it discusses about japanese anime.
Voltron is the USA modified remake of the anime Golion (first season), Dairugger (second season) and a brand new third season created for the USA market only.

@idro,
I was having the same concerns about the show listings. Upon doing my own research to try to provide TheTVDB.com with the sourcing they would accept to change their database, I came across a Voltron Fandom Wiki article about the episode listings. Here is the link: https://voltron.fandom.com/wiki/List_of ... e_episodes

It actually explains why TheTVDB.com has the show listed the way they do. Being a Japanese remake, it has a bit of an odd break down. What we know as "Voltron: Defender of the Universe" and is being shown as 124 episodes on IMBD.com and TV.com is actually two separate shows. "Golion" is Technically called "Lion Force" and is considered a single season in the US, and "Dairugger" is called "Vehicle Force." When WEP (World Events Productions) acquired Voltron from Japan They took "Lion Force's" original 52 episodes and produced another 20 on their own. TheTVDB.com has them broken into two seasons, the original 52 are shown as season 1 and the 20 American productions are listed as season 2. All 52 episodes of what you are calling season three is actually listed by The TVDB.com simply as "Vehicle Force." So they do in fact have all 14 episodes properly listed. I hope this helps you organize your database.
