Transformers Prime Season 2 Will Not Premiere Until 'Early 2012'

By Peter Van on Tuesday, November 15, 2011



Transformers Prime Executive Producer Jeff Kline has said that the second season of the show does not have a definitive premiere date and has said to be in "early 2012," despite previous reports that the show would premiere on November 28, 2011 in the United States.

In a question and answer session posted on the official Transformers Facebook page, Mr. Kline says that there is not a "specific date yet" and said that the season two will premiere in "early 2012."

"I’m hoping that means late January or early February," he continues in his response.

Of course, as Mr. Kline has said multiple times in interviews with Tformers, he and the creative group have less swing - and sometimes insight - in how and when Hasbro Studios schedule their shows.

The November 28th date was referenced at BotCon 2011.

While this may seem a bit sad, this actually makes sense. In addition to show airing on Monday 28th running contrary to the show that usually runs on Saturday evenings, most of television is on reruns at this time due to most families on travel for Thanksgiving and gamut of holidays in December and the ringing in of 2012.

So premiering the second season in January or February gives the show a better chance of getting more viewers, which, as reports suggest, The Hub is desperate to gather.

The rest of the questions posed in the session were previously answered in our interviews with Mr. Kline and other executive producers including Bob Orci, and Alex Kurtzman at Botcon 2011 and San Diego Comic-Con 2011, so we encourage you to watch (and read if that is your thing) them.

They are quite interesting.

Good call! I have 7 episodes on the DVR. I'll have to have a TC marathon!

I can wait, and I hope the HUB can drum up the viewers it wants, but it would've been nice to have this for the post-Thanksgiving chill time.

In what appears to be last minute deal, Tranformers and other Hasbro shows will be staying on with Netfilx. As we reported previously, Hasbro and Netflix were to go their own way last month when a new deal fell through. However, without disclosing the terms of the detail. USA Today reports Netflix let be known that Hasbro Studios shows aren't going anywhere. Good news for Netflix customers who need their Transformers fix.
Adweek has posted an article about Hasbro's TV strategies that goes into of detail about The Hub - and what went wrong. The short version is that Discovery was admirably hands-off with the network, leaving Hasbro almost solely in charge of programming... and a combination of slow profits, the proliferation of on-demand viewing, and the departure of President & CEO Margaret Loesch led Hasbro get out of the network-running business. Keep reading for more details on all that and a link to the full article where you can see My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic described as "creepily beloved"!
While we'd previously heard a cutoff date of January 1st for G1 and other Hasbro shows, The Wrap reports that Hasbro and Netflix have been unable to come to terms - a situation more or less confirmed by a Tweet from @HasbroNews. So if you really want to catch up on Transformers Prime, Pound Puppies, or My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, you'd best get to watching now. Keep reading for more details!
Variety reports that the Hub will, as previously rumored, become the Discovery Family Channel on October 13th. Discovery will be taking a majority share in the network, but Hasbro will retain a daytime block of programming for its shows such as Transformers Rescue Bots, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and presumably the upcoming Transformers Robots In Disguise. Keep reading for more details!
Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun reports that Polygon Pictures has walked away from the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards with four awards, two for Transformers Prime Beast Hunters. The other two were for Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and between the two series Polygon has taken the Outstanding Special Class Animated Program award for the past three years running. We'll see if Robots In Disguise 2015 will help them maintain their lock on the category, but for now keep reading for an excerpt from the article and a link to full details!
