Has it been a whole year already? Details on the season finale for Transformers Prime have been revealed. According to Zap2it, there will be a three part cartoon titled "Transformers Prime. One Shall Rise" that will begin airing next month, October. The three parts will be shown in three successive weeks October 1st, 8th and 16th. We can gather from the show descriptions that this will be a cataclysmic event in the series.

So, reruns just in time to sell the toys?
Don't get me wrong. I thoroughly enjoy TF Prime. I'd just be a little more excited about a season finale event if we'd been getting episodes more consistently up to this point. The way the show has been released has kinda killed the momentum it seems they were trying to build.
I can only guess the release schedule was based around the idea of milking out fan interest, or maybe they didn't want the show stepping on the toes of the movie and vice versa. I'll be watching, and I'm sure it'll be a good time. Some fans aren't as patient as I am though. I hope season 2 is a little more consistent.
