Robots In Disguise Second Season To Be Shortened - Full Series Episode Count To Be 45?
TFW2005 has posted images of a Hasbro brochure from the MIP Junior Conference in Europe - the venue where we recently discovered the "on offer" status of RID's second season. The brochure gives current/projected episode counts for the properties Hasbro is shopping around this season... and RID's episode count is given as 45. This would mean a nineteen episode second season, and cast serious doubts on the series' original plan of 3x26-episode seasons. Read on for more details!
The rest of the episode counts are in-line with what each show will have at the close of their current seasons, with Transformers Rescue Bots
clocking in at 104 episodes, making it the longest Transformers animated series ever made. Also worth noting is the episode count for My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic,
which is consistent with the series' episode count through its previously-announced sixth season- there's no indicator that season 6 will be the final one at this time, but the episode count is what is available to networks this year.
So while it's not a foregone conclusion that Robots In Disguise
will end with its second season, it's also not the best of signs that its second season is shorter than the first.
Also worth noting in TFW2005's report is the trailer shown at MIP which specifies that the Decepticons of the TV show are "a new faction of Decepticons." Hopefully the second season will elaborate on that!
