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.
