    Just minutes ago, I read a question presented by the Administrator staff of the Transformers Prime facebook page. He asked " How would you "end" Transformers Prime?"

    I don't doubt that this may be an indicator of the series coming to an end, or at least an hiatus. Hasbro's earnings have been on the decline since they released the DOTM line, and Battleship was a flop for them as well. Another negative indicator has been the G.I. JOE: Retaliation film being pushed back to March 2013.

    Of course, this is all my opinion, but in the past when someone of that position posed such a question, it was because they were already scheduling the series to come to an end.

    If prior series are any indication, a TF show typically lasts 2-3 seasons.

    Of course not.

    They already confirmed Season 3 a while back and we're only on break. The question is how long will the break last.

    Hopefully someone will ask that at the SDCC this year.

    They may have three seasons confirmed: They had five confirmed for Renegades prior to it getting cancelled. If it runs three seasons, that will most likely be it.

    No.

    Simply that.

    I don't think that facebook page is even official.

    I'm pretty damn sure that also gets a "no".

    Like everything else it will come to an end. I just hope it sticks around for more than 3 seasons.

    If it doesn't go on for at least 4 if not 5 seasons I'll eat my hat.

    Hell, if anything, my money's on it lasting seven seasons, but that's just one person's opinion.

    No, they are taking a break because "May Sweeps" are over. Look that up if you don't know what it is

    We know season 3 is green lit. IF this question means anything at all (which I doubt it does) it might be that they are tossing ideas of how to end it at the end of season 3.

    A lot of shows only get 3 seasons so I'm not going to assume one way or another how many Prime will get.

    For legal reasons, they won't solicit episode ideas from fans. Plus, they're probably at the voice recording stage by now. If they were going to end the show at season 3, they'd have a plan in place for a few weeks at least.

    That page is not the official The Hub Page nor the official Transformers page. That is all.

    No. They confirmed they had begun development on it. That's not the same thing at all.

    There have been things in development in the world of television that have fallen through prior to making it on air. Hell, there have been things cancelled mid-season. Nothing is guaranteed, ever.

    I like to believe season 3 is a lock, and that we might even get seasons beyond that, but we can't assume anything.

    Dude, in this era the most popular Primetime and Cable shows barely last 7 seasons. I'm betting on 4... it'll end right before the new movie comes out.

    Plus I doubt Hasbro would keep themselves tied to one style of toys for 7 years.
