Hasbro and Machinima are creating a followup to last summer’s Combiner Wars web series. Transformers: Titans Return, the second part of the Prime Wars trilogy, is set to debut this November on go90 in the United States. It’ll run for 10 eleven-minute episodes.

  • Abby Trott as Windblade
  • Jason Marnocha as Megatron
  • Frank Todaro as Starscream
  • Lana McKissack as Mistress of Flame
  • DashieGames as Menasor

Bolded are new casting choices. Peter Cullen, who has voiced the Autobot leader Optimus in various incarnations of the franchise, including the original series and the ongoing live action films, replaces Jon Bailey from Combiner Wars. Judd Nelson returns to the role of Rodimus after having played the character in the 1986 Transformers movie and more recently in Transformers Animated.

Additionally, Titans Return will feature a number of new YouTube personalities. Game Theory’s Matthew Patrick, Seriously Strange’s Rob Dyke, and Chocolate Rain’s Tay Zonday will all have a part.

The new series picks up directly from where Combiner Wars left off. Gigantic Titan Transformers are awakened and cause massive havok on Cybertron. Windblade an her small team must attempt to revive a sleeping ally to confront the menacing Trypticon in a battle that’ll change them forever.

According to Machinima, Combiner Wars was viewed over 125 million times. The first series was CG animated in Japan by Tatsunoko Productions. It’s not currently known if they’ll return for Transformers: Titans Return. F.J. DeSanto, who was the show runner on Combiner Wars, is back. A third series, Transformers: Power of the Primes, is currently in development.
