Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Mid-Season Break & Final Season Confirmed

Keyart_Master_F_spring-1jpg

IGN has posted additional information about Transformers Prime Beast Hunters, direct from Hasbro and The Hub. First up is the confirmation that the series is coming to its end with this season, as we have previously heard – these final episodes will mark the conclusion of the Transformers Prime saga.

Second there is also confirmation that the series will be taking a break approximately four episodes in. We’re basing that figure on IGN’s report that starting Friday, April 19 (about four weeks after the season premiere) the first four episodes will be rerun in special encore presentations with additional content called “Autobits” – “behind-the-scenes trivia with exclusive in-picture commentary designed to create an immersive viewing experience.”

IGN then goes on to state that new episodes will resume in May. We’d imagine based on the pattern presented that this would fall around 17 May for episode 5’s airdate, but watch this space for confirmation.

To whet your appetite, give stare over there to check out the latest Beast Hunters trailer!

    Good to have some confirmation, as if this wasn't inevitable anyways. Though it's not like the season three finale will be the actual ending. We've still go the movie to look forward to, which should handle that.

    Wait, was it confirmed the movie will be a side-thing? For all we know it could very well be the first five episodes tied together into one.

    I skimmed over the news so I might be wrong here.



    Let's hope Prime goes out with a bang.

    Actually, I think it's the final three episodes of the original 16 count. Might be the first. Either way it's three, bringing it to 13 + movie (3 episodes).

    I hate that they have a great series going and then they decide to cancel it then start a new series next year? This is dumb. If it's not broken, don't fix it.

    You should try watching Young Justice. Actually watch any Cartoon that fits in the same target audience/genre as Transformers. They all take breaks after a few episodes.

    So much hate in this fandom. lol

    Well that sucks
    Lets hope ripclaw and grimwing appear as new models (although i'd prefer grimlock and ultra magnus instead)

    I still hope that Hasbro is making season 3 more than 14 episodes. Why open up a can of worms and disappoint the fans???????

    Don't worry too much I am sure the next show will be a sequal to Prime

    They are not going to let the best Transformer show to date fade into memory.
