At the recent Toy Fair 2013, a special edition of a magazine available at the event revealed some of Hasbro's TV plans for Transformers. It confirms that Transformers: Prime will end after the upcoming third Season. On the flipside, a brand new animated series is set for launch in 2014. Here is the excerpt from the magazine:
"As for Hasbro's established stable of series, which drive the programming on its US joint venture network The Hub, the 13 episodes of Transformers Prime Beast Hunters due to launch this year represent the final chapter of the Transformers Prime story. It has grown to encompass 65 half-hour episodes that continue to roll out around the world. Look for a 75-minute Transformers Prime Beast Hunters movie to hit DVD shelves in Q4.
But that's note the end for Transformers. Arnesen says a "new iteration of the animated TV series" is slated for delivery in late 2014, which looks like it might be shaping up to be the year of Autobots, given that audiences are already expecting the fourth live-action blockbuster in July."
