    This.

    I was hoping to get at LEAST 4 full seasons. I'd be disappointed after 52 eps, but it feels like it needs at least that many.

    The show is good, and the toys are really cool.
    I wonder what they'll come up with after TF:A, though?

    The writing was just getting good. I don't particularly like the toys but I bought a few. I think it's the best Transformers cartoon since G1. The Starscream Clones, Omega Supreme, The Elite Guard, and hopefully the return of Elita-1, these were pointing to a great 3rd season and beyond. I hope this changes and the realize they have a good vehicle for the Transformers brand as a whole.

    "You know as well as I do, Optimus Prime -- It never ends!" - Megatron

    TF animated might end its run after season, 3 but Transformers isn't gone by a long shot, and the progress made with this series could translate into an even more daring and innovative show in the future.

    VERY disappointing if true. Here's hoping we don't go back to half-assed dubs of anime targetted at 3-year-olds...

    If this is true. Then Hasbro better have something REALLY awesome up there sleeve to replace Animated.

    As I'm pretty sure Takaratomy isn't going to make anything.

    Eh, it's been great so far. The thought of only one more season both makes me sad, but not sad enough to actually get any bit upset about it. Yeah, it would have been cool to see this show last another two or three seasons, but oh well, it isn't the end of the world. Hopefully we'll get some good new molds from some of the Season 3 characters. Rodimus Prime is getting a toy, so hopefully Blackout and Strika get toys too. Can't wait to see what they'll come up with next. Whatever it is, I hope it has the Dinobots in it. A show centered around the Dinobots would be pure win, imo, but I just can't see it happening.

    Edit: As for the idea for a petition, I think that if this is true, that the reason behind it is a good enough reason that they won't be swayed by a petition.

    Nothing works like the signatures of a bunch of internet nerds when you want to influence a large company.

    were the ratings good for seasons 1 and 2? if so then there's no reason cartoon network would cancel it. if ratings are good then it's gotta be coming from hasbro. anyway,hope it's not true. i'd almost regret buying all the figs cause it'd be kind of a waste since the show was over so quickly.

    Exactly, which is why I am asking if anyone has real sales numbers as opposed to your one area experience or the three areas I've browsed.

    I never followed any post-G1 series until Animated, so I have a question:

    A lot of people are saying that none of the various series of TF lasted more than 3 seasons, but were each of them also only 13 episodes long? G1's Season 2 was essentially like 2.5 seasons in one, and that in itself made the entire series much longer.

    As far as I'm concerned, a usual season for any show (that isn't on HBO) is around 20-22 episodes, so personally speaking, I consider Seasons 1 & 2 of Animated more like Season 1 just split into two parts. If Season 3 is also intended to be only about 13 episodes, I'm going to feel a little shafted and am already considering jumping off the ship in way of continuing to buy more figures. Something tells me that if S3 is the end, we likely won't be getting a LOT of the characters made into toys as we originally expected or anticipated.

    God I hope this rumor doesn't turn out to be true.

    Maybe TFA: All Growed Up will be the next series.

    I really enjoyed animated because it was so different. More playful and the characters were so expressive. I want Arcee released in the worst way now, and hope rodimus and some of his crew are released.
