    This is what we know so far.

    The season kicks off with some epic battle happening between a team lead by Rodimus Prime against a team lead by Strika. We know that Rodimus Prime has Red Alert, a female, Brawn, Hot Shot, and Ironhide with him. We know Strika is commanding Cyclonus, Blackout, and Spittor. What significance this battle has, we don't know.

    We know that Wasp, through help of Black Arachnia, becomes Waspinator, and goes after Bumblebee.

    We know that Wheeljack and Perceptor play a role in taking Decepticon technology gained from Starscream's capture in to the joining of two sparks to make the twins, Jetstorm and Jetfire, who become Safeguard. What role they play is still unknown.

    We know that Megatron and Starscream are floating amongst the ruins of Omega Supreme and something happens.

    And we know that Shockwave will go to any lengths necessary to keep his identity a secret ... which means going after the Autobots who know his deep, dark secret (was revealed to the Autobots in A Bridge Too Close part 2).

    We find out about Sari and Prowl's background.

    Characters that are confirmed for season 3
    Here are the ones
    (cameo ones included)
    Rodimus, Red Alert, Hot Shot, Brawn, Strika, Cyclonus, Blackout, Spittor, Oil Slick, Jetfire, Jetstorm, Wheeljack, Perceptor, Alpha Trion, Highbrow, Dai Atlas, Grandus, Beachcomber, Ratbat and Warpath. (About 20 characters)

    We know Judd Nelson is reprising Rodimus Prime from someone on these boards taking a tour of Animated's studio while George Takei is voicing a character (a lot of people say Dai Atlas)

    We know the BlackArachnia and Waspinator team-up episode called Predacons Rising will be written by Larry DiTillo and Bob Foward of the Beast Wars fame.

    We have various character designs
    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...eason-3-leaked-character-listings-images.html

    We know it's premiering in March.

    How come we haven't had any like tidbits of what exactly happens in the episodes like way back before season one aired?
    Someone on the boards (Skywarpantatulus?) had advanced copies of the two seasons

    Plus, when will we receive an episode guide as well as find out who's voicing who?

    I expect CN to do "heavy" promotion if this is the last season as well as having RoTF right around the corner.

    CN would do well to keep this show on the air, specially since another movie is coming out, which can help the ratings of this show, and the network in general.

    I am curious though... Where you get the idea it is airing in March? Last I heard from Whyatt (sp,) is that there is still no air date yet.

    We got alot less about Season 2 and nobody complained.

    Probably because it aired right next to S1.

    I think it's not really hushed all that more than the first two seasons were. I think it has more to do with most of people's focus being on RotF, and less on Animated.

    I also hope they play a marathon showing a sneak peak of RoTF like they did with the first one.

    No, Derrick Wyatt himself said George wasn't voicing Perceptor.

    AniProwl, Judd Nelson reprising his role as Rodimus Prime. Has this been officially confirmed, yet? Or would someone else will replace him?

    What's wrong with just waiting for the show to air instead of mulling over rumors and heresay?

    Oh wait. I forgot. It's the interwebz.

    The probable reason why Season 3 is being kept under wraps as tightly as a snare drum? Isenberg, Wyatt and gang want to completely blow us all away when it does come out.

    I think the only thing season 1&2 had over S3 in terms of advance info was an early listing of episode synopsis for both seasons.

    The spoiler info story will be good to watch, possible overkill though

    I guess it depends on how much weight you put in second hand info, if you accept someone posting about how their friend got to tour CN and thats how he found out then I guess you could say its confirmed.
