    I already felt 22 minutes is too short. Works for comedy. But for all the other cartoons, I was always fan of 2-parters, so that you end up with a 44 minute episode. I was shocked to find out, when I googled that, that today they even put commercial breaks in between a 22 minute cartoon? What the hell? I know why I don't watch TV anymore. Commercials definitely killed it for me. Haven't had TV for many years now and I don't miss it. And with TV I don't mean the big ass device standing here in my living room, I meant the broadcasting format.

    A Transformers show with 44 min episodes would be a blessing, but probably too expensive for Hasbro to produce.

    From the info I got (take it with a grain of salt as I can't 100% guarantee it), it is suggested to air 2 episodes per session similar to Spongebob Squarepants. Which means the first season is done in 9 weeks.

    If that is true, then 2018 will be a dry year for me, in terms of new Transformers media, since I primarily follow the TV show, video games and films in this franchise.

    The show will apparently start in the last quarter of 2018 so maybe not.

    11 minutes is kinda short. If that's the came I'm hoping they do something like Justice League Action. Short run times, but they manage to pack a lot into it - and doing it in such a way that it can still appeal to a wide ranger of viewers.

    11 minutes suck, but sort of happy nothing to end of 2018. I am on season 2 of Beast Wars with my boy and once we finish s3 of beast wars, we have BW2 , NEO and Beast machines

    I hope the 11 minute format spurs tighter, more creative writing. I know with shows like Star vs the forces of Evil and Steven Universe having 11 minutes to tell a story really helped light a fire in the writer's room and they are able to tell great stand alone and arcing stories with the time they are given.

    I don't know that I believe this will be the case with a Transformers property, but a small part of me hopes that is what will happen here.

    The variety of names Hasbro is forced to come up with for us never ceases to amuse me. Kids 10+ is a pretty good one.

    I know it’s early, but I just don’t dig any of the promotional art we’ve seen for this.

    Have we gotten confirmation on where this airing? Because after watching how Cartoon Network just dissed Justice League Action, I'm hoping that they decided to go with someone else.

    They put it in an early morning death slot (right next Robots in Disguise) and just put the last 5 or 6 episodes on their app/OnDemand without fanfare. They did this after Warner Bros Animation went out of their way to make the show fit the channel's current programming criteria (11 minute runtime, limited continuity, more comedic, etc.).

    That’s some bs, on the other hand, timeslots are an archaic concept especially when everything gets put up on demand anyway

    So WB tried to work with Hasbro and got shafted anyway? I'm reminded again of why Hasbro tried to get the Hub going.

    I'm not actually certain, but judging by what CN has done to basically every action cartoon on their channel in the last 5+ years, I'd say they probably put it in a graveyard slot (usually something like 6 in the morning) and then quietly canceled it once they had aired all the episodes. For those in the know, am I correct?

    Edit: apparently so, since I only now just read the post from Scientist Man right above mine. :rolleyes:

    How did Titans Return make you rethink that? It failed in every category you just listed.
