New Transformers Series Announced by Netflix


Streaming service Netflix has recently announced War For Cybertron, an all new Transformers series that delivers a new universe origin story concerning the war between the Autobots and Decepticons.

Transformers: War for Cybertron is a joint project from Netflix, Hasbro, and Rooster Teeth designed to give fans a fresh new look at the Transformers franchise. The series is slated to launch in 2020 via Netflix’s streaming service. Rooster Teeth is credited as producer, while Polygon Pictures will serve as the animation studio.

Transformers veteran FJ DeSanto (Transformers: Titans Return, Transformers: Power of the Primes) will serve as showrunner on the series with several contributing writers, including George Krstic (Megas XLR), Gavin Hignight (Transformers: Cyberverse), and Brandon Easton (Agent Carter, Transformers: Rescue Bots).

“In this Transformers origin story, we will explore the expansive universe of Cybertron in a way that audiences have never seen before — to the delight of both existing fans and those coming to the franchise for the first time,” said John Derderian, Director of Anime for Netflix. “The Transformers brand is a global phenomenon and we are thrilled to partner with Hasbro, Rooster Teeth and Polygon to bring this exciting new series to our members around the world on Netflix.”

“We’re thrilled to work with Rooster Teeth’s new premium studio division to bring an all-new Transformers fan-oriented series to Netflix,” said Tom Warner, Senior Vice President for the Transformers franchise for Hasbro. “Transformers has a rich history of great storytelling and War for Cybertron is an exciting new chapter in the Transformers Universe.”
