Transformers: Cyberverse rolls out on linear TV, video-on-demand
Transformers: Cyberverse, the latest animated incarnation of the Transformers franchise is here. Produced in Ireland at the Hasbro-owned Boulder Media, Transformers Cyberverse’s first season will consist of 18 eleven-minute episodes with a visual designed meant to be more evocative of the original 1980s-look.
Cartoon Network previously streamed a clip of the show, here’s a trailer alongside the show’s plot synopsis:
Bumblebee is on a critical mission where lives are at stake! Only, he can’t remember what it is. It’s a good thing his best friend Windblade has found him to help repair his damaged memory chips. With each recovered memory, Bumblebee rediscovers his past adventures on Cybertron before coming to Earth. He relives fun moments when he played Cybertronian sports with his friends, and even tragic ones that would change his life. His past will shape him into becoming the hero we know today. As each memory is repaired, another clue comes to light that will lead them both to complete their shared mission to save their friends and Earth; however, the Decepticons are hot on their heels and time is running out.
Transformers: Cyberverse stars Jeremy Levy as the voice of Bumblebee, Jake Tillman as Optimus Prime, Ryan Andes as Grimlock and Shockwave, Sophia Isabella as Windblade, Marc Thopson as Megatron, Billy Bob Thompson as Starscream, and Deanna McGovern as Shadowstriker.
