With Wizardsthe anthology series will come to a close, bringing together characters from both prior shows for a grand finale.Wizards: Tales of Arcadia Cat
Trollhunters introduces Jim Lake, the first human Trollhunter who along with his friends must protect both the humans and trolls of Arcadia from an ancient evil. In 3Belowtwo alien royals, Aja and Krel, crash land in Arcadia and must work alongside their human and one troll friends to protect their new home from invasion.
Now in Wizardsthe characters of these two shows will come together in order to defeat some as-of-yet unknown enemy that is threatening to destroy not just Arcadia, but the whole world! As the final chapter in Tales of ArcadiaWizards is expected to reunite most if not all the characters introduced on 3Below and Trollhunters. Fred Tatasciore. Additionally, the many residents of Arcadia who have had minor roles on both series will likely also appear in Wizards.
Also expected to return is Merlin David Bradleywhich makes perfect sense seeing as he's the only actual wizard to have been so far introduced. Specific details about Wizards: Tales of Arcadia 's story have not been released, but the final scene in 3Below season 2 does hint at what's to come.
By now, a world-ending threat in Arcadia is nothing new, but being forewarned about it by a wizard's familiar doesn't bode well. Also, the only known wizard is Merlin, and he didn't have a familiar in Trollhunters let alone a black cat familiar.
So who is the cat working for? That's a question Wizards is sure to answer, possibly even revealing more magic-users in the process. In addition to that teasing final scene, an earlier moment in 3Below season 2 may provide more clues about what will happen in Wizards. During season 2, episode 11, "Race to Trollmarket", Toby reaches out to Jim and Blinky for help, and during their conversation relayed over video Jim is seen fighting a mysterious figure clad head to toe in white armor.
There's no character who fits that description, but the armor looks reminiscent of the armor worn by both Merlin and Morgana - the evil enchantress and primary villain of Trollhunters. If Morgana has returned, this white knight might be working for her, and it may be she who is threatening to again end the world. Along with these more overt hints at what may be in store on Wizards: Tales of Arcadiaanother scene in 3Below season 2 reveals that the Akiridians and trolls actually first met hundreds of years ago.

Del Toro modeled the show's sensibilities after shows he grew up with such as Jonny Questidentifying them as "really earnest and emotionally beautiful". When creating the show's narrative, del Toro noted that he wanted a "bittersweet journey" for the main character dealing with issues that most such "power fantasies" failed to address, telling indiewire "I wanted to say, 'Look, you can be in high school and you can have your problems.
