This is interesting. Hopefully we'll see some of the old characters from Prime return for the new series.

So something more family friendly, simpler designs, and possibly a sequel to Prime?

I wouldn't mind it.

not much to go on here. Sounds like it's the same creative team, for better or worse.

'Family friendly' isn't necessarily a bad thing. They'll probably have a new look and brighter colours.

A reminder to people that "toning it down" probably just means "less wanton killing of guys all over the place."

As let's face it, Prime had quite the body count.

And if the current people are doing the show still, cool. They found their footing by the end of the series in terms of balancing plot/action (it took too long, but still) and producers like Orci/Kurtzman have good connections for getting guest voices.

And if it's being toned down, the violence/fight scenes can't be as much of a crutch for the writers, that said. Rescue Bots S1 was consistently a better series than Prime S1 on account of it having better writing, despite the target demographic/audience being different.

All the rumors we've heard sound like the same guidelines Animated operated under. And as long as we don't have Man of Action running the series, we should be good.

im all for this but the things that made Prime so great for me was its dark and intense moments now i have been proven wrong when new shows are promoted as being more family friendly and stuff and in the end ive enjoyed them (IE rescue bots) but if this IS supposedly a continuation of prime im just not sure how this will work but nonetheless im keeping an opened mind.

Thanks for sharing, some of our answers have been answered, which is good news.

This "toned down" series, don't know, I'm going to keep an open mind, on this one.

I'm really going to miss the CGI in TFP.
