Our fellow fans over at the Allspark get the credit for digging up this bit of news. The latest edition of Kidscreen magazine contains some news on Transformers Prime Beast Hunters including the fate of Transformers Prime itself. The article puts forward that Prime season 3, Beast Hunters, will now only contain 13 episodes and it will mark the final chapter of the Transformers Prime series.
That being said, the article goes on to say that a “new iteration of the animated TV series” is due in late 2014, and while there is no word on what this new series might be, chances are it will be set in the Aligned Continuity. With all the effort Hasbro has put into creating this cohesive continuity for Transformers – a continuity presently covering two novels, two prequel video games, the upcoming MMOG “Transformers Universe”, three comic book miniseries, 65 episodes and a TV movie – it is unlikely that the Aligned Continuity is going away so soon.
