An all new Transformers series is in the works!

The upcoming 26-episode, half-hour animated, action-comedy will premiere on Nickelodeon.

In the new series, a new species of Transformers must find their place and purpose among Autobots, Decepticons, and the human family that adopts them.

“As soon as I read the creative concept, which at its core is about family, I knew we absolutely had to tell this story with our good friends at eOne and Hasbro,” Ramsey Naito, President, Nickelodeon Animation, said in a statement. “The series will tell a reimagined story featuring both original characters and fan-favorites for a whole new generation of kids and families. The creative team at Nick, overseen by Claudia Spinelli, SVP of Animation Development, can’t wait to get started on building this new world.”

“We’re thrilled to be working with Nickelodeon to expand the Transformers animated universe and bring an all-new more than meets the eye story to life,” Olivier Dumont, eOne’s President of Family Brands, added. “This new series is a fresh creative take on the brand, which will excite longtime fans around the world and soon to be fans alike, all being introduced to the robots in disguise by an A list creative team led by eOne’s Mikiel Houser.”

Transformers was first launched by Hasbro in 1984 as a toy line and an animated series. Since then, it has become a mega franchise of toys, movies and TV shows. The most recent live action Transformers movie, Bumblebee, starred Hailee Steinfeld, and was released back in 2018.
