Jeff Kline Interview – Next Transformers series may be developed by the Prime Creative Team

IGN has posted a short yet insightful interview with Transformers Prime’s executive producer and showrunner, Jeff Kline. He talks a bit about the process of bringing Prime Season 3 – Beast Hunters – to the screen including referencing once again the “rejiggering” of plots that occurred when permission to use the “beasts” was granted. He also mentions that new villain Predaking is a great addition to the show in design, character and where they take him in his character arc. All in all, promising stuff!

The most interesting part of the interview comes when IGN asks Mr Kline about the next iteration of Transformers. Jeff Kline confirms Hasbro and the Hub would like the same creative team that has worked on Transformers Prime to be involved in the new series. He also states that so far the new series is in the earliest stages of development, which he states is mostly character and conceptual work. There’s the standard caveat of course “if all goes to plan”, because as we know well all plans are subject to change, but this is our first news on the next Transformers cartoon series, such as it is.

    In before "THERE'S ONLY ONE PREDACON, HE'S FULL OF LIES"

    Most interesting news is definitely that there will be a Prime sequel series with the same production crew. Wonder how they are differentiating it though. Hopefully they don't just change designs willy-nilly.

    Hey, news is news.

    Hopefully the sequel will be interesting.

    He never actually says it's a sequel...

    I hope it is, though.

    At least even Kline is saying "Predacons" as a plural now. I feel less crazy now, haha.

    That's not what he said. He says the people who did Prime will be doing the next series. Absolutely nothing about it being a sequel series.

    ^ Good point. Guess it really depends on if Hasbro feels like throwing the "Aligned" baby out with the bathwater.

    I'm really interested in finding out more about the next series. I like the fact the same crew will be working on it.

    exactly. i really hope its not another reboot though.

    hasbro needs to be more careful with the brand. i think they have already done damage by hitting the reset button over and over.

    but what do i know, im not an "expert" getting paid to plan out their franchise...
