"Steven Universe" season 4 is currently on a break, but fans are already experiencing withdrawal from the Cartoon Network animated series. And while they wait for its return in November, a recently released sneak peek should keep fans at bay for the time being.
The official Facebook page of "Steven Universe" recently uploaded a video of what an upcoming episode would look like. It starts out in the field, with Peridot eager to show Steven something she and Lapis Lazuli created — a dog-like, animated pumpkin. "We did it. Guess you don't know how vegetables work after all," Peridot smugly tells Steven, who nervously chuckles in response. But when Peridot picks the pumpkin up, it runs straight for Steven, confusing the two gems.
Peridot and Lapis wonder why the pumpkin prefers Steven over them, even though they created it. Steven then confesses that he was actually the one who brought it to life. In an effort to console the two gems, Steven proceeds to take an inanimate pumpkin and carves a face on it. The action, however, scares away the dog-like pumpkin and it jumps into Lapis' arms.
According to reports, the upcoming episode of "Steven Universe," titled "Gem Harvest," will see the fusion of Peridot and Lapis. Their fusion becomes necessary when a new villain emerges, proving to be a challenge for Steven. The said villain is speculated to be Blue Diamond.
In other news, rumor has it that the fourth season of "Steven Universe" may be the show's last. And although fans are undoubtedly against the move, the show's ratings may cause the network to cancel it. Apparently, the show isn't as popular as it used to be and viewership numbers have been suffering. However, it is important to note that Cartoon Network has yet to speak up on the matter, so it would be best to take this with a grain of salt for now.
"Steven Universe" season 4 will return in November.
