It's a good time to be a Transformers fan, especially as we approach the franchise's 30th Anniversary. First up, we'll be getting the live action sequel Transformers: Age of Extinction in theaters this summer. And then, The Hub Network has announced that we will be getting a whole new Transformers animated series in 2015, which executive producer Roberto Orci describes as a continuation of Transformers: Prime. This new series is currently in production. We have the official press release, along with a tease in the form of Bumblebee. Take a look at the beloved robot in disguise as he prepares for his latest incarnation.
The Hub Network, champions of family fun and the only network dedicated to providing kids and their families entertainment they can watch together, announced today that a new animated series is currently in production for the globally renowned Transformers brand. Set to debut in early 2015, the new action-packed series is being produced by Hasbro Studios, the production and distribution division of Hasbro, Inc., and is executive produced by Jeff Kline (Transformers: Prime; G.I. Joe Renegades).
Taking place years after the battle between Autobots and Decepticons in Transformers: Prime, this all new series centers around our hero Bumblebee stepping up to lead a brand new team of Autobots. The show features an all-star cast with Will Friedle (Boy Meets World) returning as Bumblebee, along with Darren Criss (Glee), Constance Zimmer (House of Cards) and Ted McGinley (Married with Children). Blending 3D characters with hand-painted environments, the series mixes action-packed adventure with lots of comedy, making it a rip-roaring experience for kids and families to enjoy together.
This is a big year as the Transformers brand celebrates its 30th anniversary. The Hub Network will also be celebrating the success of the franchise with special events to be announced later this year.
