    As someone who has only just begun to really appreciate it, I find this to be disappointing news, if true.

    The overall feeling I have is that the people at Cartoon Network absolutely love working on Transformers Animated. And that the guys at Hasbro who work on it absolutely love working on Transformers Animated.

    So if this is true, it probably came from higher up in the food chain at Hasbro.

    So much waisted potential if true. Both for toys and the show.

    Well, it sucks, but then again, when have we ever gotten a series that lasted longer than three seasons? That seems to be the norm for Transformers:

    G1 - 3 Seasons + Rebirth
    Beast Saga - 2 Beast Wars + Beast Machines (...I think...)
    RID - 1 Season
    Unicron Trilogy - Armada + Energon + Cybertron
    Movie - Probably a Trilogy

    Plus, I'd rather be left wanting more Animated as opposed to saying "It was good in the beginning, but now it kinda sucks..."

    Though, I think four seasons would've been better...

    I really hope this turns out to be false. I love Animated and can't wait for Season 3 to begin.

    The creative team has mentioned a few times that they treat every season like it's the last.
    Could this by a misinterpretation of one of these statements?

    From what I heard / read, Hasbro is planning to do something similar to G.I. Joe Resolute for Transformers.

    No.

    If the future of Transformers Animated was still "being decided", I would have received some sort of comment like "Season 3 is ready to air and we're hoping to get fast at work on Season 4 as soon as we are green lighted to do so" ...

    Instead I got "I can't answer that, I'm sorry" and "I can't comment on anything right now" responses.

    Gotta read between the lines.

    While it would suck if Animated stopped after S3, it's not like it wasn't awesoem. BW is still awesome sauce and it only ran for three seasons.

    As one of the people that didn't like the designes when first revealed I can say that it makes no difference to me. I don't find this to be completely unexpected considering that Hasbro said Animated and Universe would be going on hiatus in favor of the big ROTF push. I think we still have to wait and see if Animated will continue after ROTF or if it really is done.

    Maybe they're actually planning a feature length motion picture to ride on the coattails of the live-action movies!

    Yep, this is the answer I will believe.

    I think it's unfair to put the blame soley on Cartoon Network *OR* Hasbro until this rumor is confirmed or denied officially and what reasoning is given.
