RUMOR: Season 3 may end Transformers Animated

Posted by:

A sad piece of news has been spoken of at TFW2005. The title is pretty much self-explanatory, but let me say that this is a rumor. Its truth has yet to be confirmed or denied. But here's what was said:

"Over the course of the past week, TFW2005.COM has been digging and pressing our sources to find out if the rumor we received through an anonymous tip (which cites un-named sources from within Cartoon Network) was true or not - if Transformers Animated was concluding at the end of its third season.

For some of you, this would be heart-breaking news. For some of you, this would be the best news you've heard since you first saw the designs leak a couple of years back. And the third portion probably never cared in the first place, thus they do not care now.

TFW2005.COM's sources were unwilling to confirm or deny this rumor, or simply said 'No comment' at all."

In addition to this, when asked on his blog about this rumor, Derrick Wyatt simply responded: "Sorry, I can‘t comment on this." which may mean that he cannot say yes or no at the moment.

That rumor had better be clarified false, because this show may have the X-Men: Evolution effect or something.
Agent X said,  - 2009-01-28 15:46:51
no? Yes? maybe?


Sorry, I can‘t comment on this."

Ok if this news is real i have one big thing to ask. Is there a new TF cartoon in the works?? This show has a lot of cool things about it. We got the Dinobots back. We got a good mix from other TF shows. Let from BW & BM & Next season more G1. And the one guy i hated from Armada comes in to the show. Hot Shot! Why hot shot? If this is the end well Lets hope it's not THE END. Let's hope there a new TF toon in the work. If not then why be a TF fan if hasbro is just going to let TF be movies. I still want my TF cartoons!

I really hope this news is false and that TFA will continue on, or at least evolve into a new show with expanded characters and story lines.

Ironically, if they do start a new TF show, I kinda hope they focus on someone other then Optimus and Megatron. Yes, they are cool, but they are kind of played out. I want to see what other transformers have been up to since the start of the war. Lets see a show about the Wreckers and their exploits.

>> Is there a new TF cartoon in the works??

All that's in the works at the moment is TFA Season 3, the ROTF movie, and their accompanying toylines. If a new series were currently in the works, I'm sure we'd have heard of it by now.
Bellprime said,  - 2009-01-28 22:17:47
At first, I DIDN'T like the TFA show or,toys. But now I DO. I hope this isn't the end of the line for the Transformers. It would be sad if all we had to look forward to were the toys from TF 2 Revenge Of The Fallen. Not that they won't be good But, PLEASE Don't let this be the end!!! Call Hasbro & BEG them to find new ways to keep stories,shows & toys on the shelves & on TV & in theaters. Surely' they can find ways to keep the Transformers alive. Organise a campaign requesting 40,000 signatures. I'll be the first to sign it. Can we save the Transformers from dying out? "Yes We Can"

I don't think so. I mean, think back, the writers said back when while S3 wasn't legally allowed to be talked about they said "we can't talk about it, so we'll say there's nothing in the works yet for season 4," which pretty much means they've already thought about a fourth season. There's no reason that it won't continue.
Lawson said,  - 2009-01-29 06:49:29
I hope TFA gets a season4. But we all know how Hasbro puts other TF things back when a movie is coming & we all know theres going to be a 3rd movie. So if season3 is it do we get a new TF Toon? If we get a 4th season to TFA wood that be get for TF Toons? If Hasbros going to let a show that is just now getting good end what happens next. Do we get a new TF Toon? If Hasbeo is going to end TFA Then its time to start work on a new TF show!! BUT I think TFA can work. Keep TFA going for about 6 or 7 seasons. Maybe by then we can see an Anmated Unicron?
Cheetor2 said,  - 2009-01-29 06:55:59
Ok. First of all some of you need to just calm down. You act like it's the end of the world or soemthing. Just because TFA might end with season 3 doesn't mean it's the end of Transformers. We'll still have the films and if Hasbro was smart, and we know they are, there will be another TF cartoon at some point. IMO TFA was the best show since Beast Wars as far as stories and characters. Look at it this way fellas. Did the Spider-Man movies end the cartoons????? No they didn't. It could be that Hasbro is looking to take Transformers in yet another direction.
Lawson said,  - 2009-01-29 07:08:40
It's Not OK. Just having the movies wood Kill Transformers not help. It's the Cartoons that keeps US BIG FANS Going. Hasbro to happy about having the movie. YES! It's cool we get new TF Movies but it's the Cartoon that started TF. TF needs to keep going in the toons not the movies. Lets all hope TFA keeps going. Till hasbro can start up a new & yes i hate to say it but better TF toon. A TF Toon not made for kids but made for us like how BW & BM & RID were. TFA is good but Hasbro can do better. Don't get me worg TFA is starting to Rock. And man i can't wait to see season3. But if cartoonnetwork is letting go of TFA then the time to start work on a new TF toon is now!
fallen said,  - 2009-01-29 07:39:47
well im more of a fan of the tf movies than the cartoons
joe the plumber said,  - 2009-01-29 10:48:46
I hope its false ive been waiting a long time fo seas. 3 and if it is true there better be a new tf cartoon coming out
Perceptor said,  - 2009-01-29 11:04:05
This would make me very sad indeed. I just hope it changes.

The way that Transformers continually reinvented itself over and over and over from Beast Machines, to R.I.D., to Armada, to Energon, to Cybertron, to Classics to movie... 7 totally different lines in 7 years. I just wanted to have some continuity. They have something fans love, just keep it (Animated) going strong on CN throughout the TF movie years.

Animated has just SO much potential. Even with only two seasons shown, fans are already talking about if it's better than Beast Wars... Given enough seasons, it absolutely has the potential to be considered the best TF series of all time. I don't want Transformers to reinvent itself as something else. I just want Animated to keep going.

My mood on this fluxuates from really sad to really mad. If it was CartoonNetwork that pulled the plug, I wonder, WHY? Is it because the ratings aren't good enough? God, maybe they should play it in a decent slot instead of 5AM!!! Crap, do they really need consecutive hours of Flapjack, Chowder or Mucha Luna every day??? Why not put TFA in the after school time slot! or prime time where it belongs!!!

If' it's Hasbro pulling the plug, I ask why? Because they haven't sold enough toys to justfify??? They have only themselves to blame. God, the shows aired 6 months before the toys FINALLY became available. If they had them on store shelves when excitement was at a fevor pitch, when the shows debuted, there is no question they would've sold more...

It just pisses me off.

Now, if this is true, then I hope thy have an awesome story to back it up. If TF is ending all together, then I will personally OWN Aaron Archer in front of the entire cast of the Transformers universe. :P
budgrimlock said,  - 2009-01-29 13:10:41
Transformers Animated IS THE FIRST personal favorite cartoon I feel I could reccommend to ANY KIDS. It's brilliant, funny, and seems to focus on constructive relationships and sustainability. IT"S GOOD FOR KIDS!!!! I will personally do what I can to support its further development. Derrick Wyatt has done beautiful things for TF's. Maybe they will make a 14+ cartoon to go along with it in the future. Something like The Batman or Brave and the Bold, or even Justice League from 2000-2005 would find a loyal audience of collectors and kids- the same people who buy Universe toys.
budgrimlock said,  - 2009-01-29 13:15:16
I also agree that Cartoon network (and every other channel) already has enough "fart and burp" cartoons that make no sense and will rot your kids' brains. TF animated is unique in quality, content, and humor. I keep hearing Bumblebee, after seeing Ultra Magnus' alt mode-"nobody's gonna notice THAT!" Great moment displaying the show's realism and humor.
The bad guys are energy vampires and the good guys are "civil" servants. This is just SO MUCH BETTER for kids than violence or stuff that makes no sense at all.

You all act like it's the end of the world. It's just a rumor and look at all the comotion it has caused. TFA is indeed a great show and I would love to see it continue.But, if it doesn't then so be it. So lets not get our panties in a wad until we find something out for sure.

i agree with cheetor:]

I don't agree. When "rumors" like this surface, there's usually *something* to it. I'm pretty upset about this to be honest.

I love Animated and do NOT want it to end after S3. To me, it *IS* the best TF series of all time. It's mostly bots-to-vehicles (I loved Beast Wars, but lets face it, vehicle alt mode are superior) the constant G1 references, the character development, all the "special guests"... for me, it is totally a part of Transformers continuity...

it betta not end
Reggie said,  - 2009-02-10 13:02:13

Serite said,  - 2009-05-24 02:32:21
This cant be the last season because no one captured Blackout,Cyclonus,Oilslick,Strika,Spittitor,Blackaracknia,
Female Starscream,Lockdown,Swindle,Thundercracker,and Skywarp.THERE ARE JUST TO MANY DECEPTICONS LEFT TO END THE SHOW!!!!!
and we don't know what happened to Waspinator,Ultra Magnus,
Sentinel,Blackaracknia,Sari, or Optimus and his team!!!!!
right now i have a series stuck in my head and every night i think about it,it's to bad that i am just 11 years old, I'VE JUST GOT SO MANY EPISODES IN MY HEAD!!!!!

Serite said,  - 2009-05-24 10:51:27
I'm not even old enough to make a tv show.
Arosha said,  - 2009-05-26 11:53:00

your only 11 I'm 38 and I've have watched the entire series!! Truly a wonderfully written show and I can't imagine it could end the way it did. Come on bring Prowl back, or I won't beable to go to sleep.
The Truth said,  - 2009-06-10 11:25:28
It's officially confirmed at Bot-con that TFA is ending in season 3. Have fun crying, you n00bs. AHAHAHAHAAHHAA.
Taya said,  - 2009-07-15 23:51:50
It cant end that way! For one thing they just killed Prowl! WTF?! They have to bring him back! And then what happend to Wasp and Blackarachnia? If they don't make a season 4 can there at least be movie?
angel said,  - 2009-07-16 00:01:10
I just cant stand Prowl being dead! He has got to come back! And Waspinator is still after Bumblebee!
And Blackarachnia is still angry at the world! And Sari and Bumblebee need to become close again, )they seemed to drift apart when she became a robot) And theres still tons decepticons left! So the point is...The show has to go on! Its driving me crazy!

Why are they canceling TFA?
>.> Really, it's one of the decent shows that I actually get up in the morning (though it kills me) to watch!
If they're canceling because they didn't make enough money, maybe they should have made more stuff with Blitzwing on it. I know for a fact that if they sold Blitzy pillows/blankets/plushies, Hasbro would make alot of money really fast.
Why are they killing a show that was really popular?
If it's CN canceling it, they should put it on when people are actually awake!
