“Transformers” Origin Series Coming To Netflix

Netflix, Hasbro and animation company Rooster Teeth are teaming for the series “Transformers: War for Cybertron” to launch on Netflix in 2020.

The series will reportedly boast a “new animation look and style” that shows the alien robots as they’ve never been seen before in an origin story about the “Transformers” universe. Rooster Teeth will produce with Polygon Pictures handling the animation.

FJ DeSanto (“Transformers: Titans Return,” “Transformers: Power of the Primes”) will serve as showrunner with writers including George Krstic (“Megas XLR”), Gavin Hignight (“Transformers: Cyberverse”) and Brandon Easton (“Transformers: Rescue Bots”).
