Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters Episode Preview – Prey


Transformers Prime Beast Hunters on The Hub

The Hub Network has made an interesting story arc with the return of the third and final season of the Daytime Emmy® Award-winning CG-animated series “Transformers Prime Beast Hunters” from Hasbro Studios, which premiered on Friday, March 22.

In the half-hour action series, the epic battle with the Decepticons rages on as Optimus Prime leads his team of Autobots and three human children in a mission to defend Earth and one day restore his home planet of Cybertron. But a brand new enemy emerges that could turn the tide of the war in Megatron’s favor. The epic saga’s return presents a formidable new opponent for the Autobots and the introduction of a third dragon-like faction called the Predacons.

In the season-three premiere episode, the survival of Optimus Prime is in doubt after Megatron’s destruction of the Autobot base on Earth, while the separated members of Team Prime try to reconnect after being scattered to the wind to prevent detection.

In the next episode, entitled PREY, airing on The Hub on Friday at 7:30 PM (ET), we see Smokescreen tending to the injured Optimus Prime, whose health is failing. In other places, the Prime team is separated, making attempts to “get the band back together” without the Decepticons detecting their whereabouts. As it turns out, thanks to Shockwave, Megatron has a new pet to unleash on the Autobots… a Predacon! We won’t spoil the episode for you, but we can tell you that the Autobots do battle with the Predacon, and who wins that battle is for you to find out. Also, while Smokescreen is on a mission to retrieve “The Forge”, we see how Optimus plans to use it.

The final 13 episodes will see Optimus Prime and his team face their greatest challenge yet in a new foe dedicated to the destruction of the Autobots — and potentially, planet Earth.

Starting Friday, April 19 (7:30 p.m. ET), the first four episodes of the new season will have special encore presentations that include “Autobits” — behind-the-scenes trivia with exclusive in-picture commentary designed to create an immersive viewing experience. Additional new episodes will resume in May.

On hubworld.com, an all-new show-page design for “Transformers Prime Beast Hunters” features exclusive images and video clips, as well as a countdown clock for the season three premiere. You can see more about Transformers Prime Beast Hunters at http://www.hubworld.com/tfprime.

Additionally, two brand new games launched on Friday, March 15 to support the new season. “Relic Hunter” features beloved character Arcee on a mission to Antarctica where she must navigate nine frozen trails to recover an ancient Ionian relic. “Pulsar Defense” features a battle between good and evil as the Autobots race to build up their defenses against the Decepticon’s ultimate weapon that threatens to destroy them all.

Finally, The Hub’s Facebook and Twitter (@HubTVNetwork) platforms will also provide sneak peeks and exclusive content from the new season and extend the viewing experience with additional activities to engage fans of all ages.

The Hub Original Series “Transformers Prime” was honored in 2012 with two Daytime Emmy® Awards, including Outstanding Special Class Animated Program. The wins bring to four the total number of Daytime Emmy® Awards the animated series has received since it premiered in November 2010.

“Transformers Prime Beast Hunters” is executive produced by Duane Capizzi (“The Batman,” “Superman: Doomsday”), Jeff Kline (“Jackie Chan Adventures,” “Men in Black: The Animated Series”), Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci (Star Trek, Cowboys & Aliens, and Transformers feature films and TV’s “Fringe” and “Hawaii Five-O”). Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, Josh Keaton, Jeffrey Combs, Kevin Michael Richardson, Ernie Hudson, Gina Torres, John Noble, GeorgeTakei, Markie Post, and Steve Blum lend their voices to the series, which is produced by Hasbro Studios.

Later this year, fans can look for a 75-minute “Hub Original Family Movie,” titled “Predacons Rising,” which will also be available on DVD.
