Twilight Sparkle and the rest of the gang will be returning to celebrate the friendship of magic via the hit animated series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, which The Hub Network has recently renewed for its fifth season. The Hasbro-produced fifth season is expected to air on the Hub Network in 2015. The season is said to consist of 26 episodes.
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic follows the magical Princess Twilight Sparkle and her assistant Spike as they live their lives in the enchanted land of Equestria, surrounded by their colorful pony friends – the honest Applejack, the generous Rarity, the kind Fluttershy, the loyal Rainbow Dash, and the fun loving Pinkie Pie.
“My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic” features key voice talent including Tara Strong, Cathy Weseluck, Andrea Libman as well as Tabitha St. Germain and Ashleigh Ball, who both also provide voice to characters of the Hub Network’s “Littlest Pet Shop.” The series is executive produced by Chris Bartleman, Kirsten Newlands and Stephen Davis and was developed for television by Lauren Faust. In addition, season five will continue to include co-executive producers Meghan McCarthy and Jayson Thiessen, who is also the supervising director, as well as composer Daniel Ingram, who was nominated for a Daytime Emmy® Award for his previous work on “My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic.”
