The creator and showrunner, Noelle Stevenson, spoke to Entertainment Weekly in March 2020 and explained why the series would end after five seasons. She revealed, “I do feel very lucky because we knew from the very beginning what our episode order was, so we got to tailor the story very specifically to how long the show was gonna be. It was tailored to be 52 episodes, the length that it is, and that’s a real blessing for a storyteller because it means everything happens when it’s meant to happen.” She added, “We set out with a plan, we executed that plan, so it’s very satisfying to see it wrap up like this. I’m very happy with where we got to with this story.” Therefore, it is confirmed that the show concluded naturally.

In another conversation, Stevenson shared what inspired her to create a series around the character She-Ra. The cartoonist and animation producer told Comicbook, “She’s [She-Ra] so often been a character who appears in He-Man’s story and he and hers, but I don’t think that she’s ever had a story that’s focused on her, the way that so many stories just were solely about He-Man.”
Stevenson continued, “So I think being able to create something that is sort of self-contained and standalone while sort of pressing on some of the bigger mythology of the Masters of the Universe world – I’m really proud to have been able to do that.” She also looked forward to seeing the character appear in other projects. Taking everything into consideration, it is unlikely that ‘She-Ra and the Princesses of Power’ season 6 will ever get made.
There is no denying that the show has a massive and active fanbase. In 2019, a joke on April Fool’s Day went viral as a Twitter post announced that a Tabletop RPG (Role Playing Game) focused on She-Ra and the other characters was going to be launched in 2020. Nevertheless, this triggered an overwhelming response since many people showed interest in making it a reality. Stevenson herself admitted to being open to the idea. In her conversation with Comicbook, she said, “I think that would be really cool. And I know a few people have done sort of unofficial ones.”
Stevenson concluded by saying, “So it’s something I would be very interested in, but I don’t have any other information.” She clarified that no formal conversations had taken place regarding the release of an RPG. So, all in all, there is no harm in hoping that we will get to see the characters one way or another. Till then, you can revisit your favorite series on Netflix, which is currently streaming all five seasons of the show.
