An interesting news story has just surfaced that we are choosing to classify as a RUMOR until we find corroboration: a site called Entertainment Unlimited has posted a story claiming that Beast Wars is scheduled to make its return in late 2018 as a Netflix Animated Series! Marvel Comics writer Jason Aaron is said to be the scripter for the series, and a character list is given - though, given some of these characters one has to assume that this is an all-new continuity and not some kind of continuation of the original.

The 11 characters listed as being included by Entertain-O-Rama are: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Rattrap, Ravage, Scorponok, Cheetor, Blackarachnia, Terrorsaur, Inferno, Rhinox, and Magmatron.
We eagerly await confirmation of this story, and if true, more details on the upcoming series.
