• 26 New Episodes for MLP:FiM Season 5

    Oh Spike! by shadowhulk

    Update: Hub Network has now released an official Press Release with this information. You can find it below after the break.

    Not necessarily the most surprising news but The Examiner in a recent article was able to confirm that Season 5 of MLP:FiM will include a total of 26 new episodes. If you were worried we'd get a short 13 episode season due to Equestria Girls, you don't need to fret.

    As for how long we'll have to wait for Season 5, well that's really up in the air. The logic I'm using is pretty simple: If they said a specific season (i.e. Fall 2014, Winter 2014) they would have have to rush and meet that deadline possibly not having the show fully ready to go or worse... doing a poor job. When you say "Coming 2015" you now open up a winter for the ability to launch the season whenever they want. We shouldn't be surprised if during Comic Con 2014, they announce a more specific date and that date is in Late 2014.


    LOS ANGELES - Twilight Sparkle and her beloved pony friends will continue to celebrate the magic of friendship as the Hub Network announces season five of its hit animated series "My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic." The series, from Hasbro Studios, is slated to air in 2015 on the Hub Network, champions of family fun and the only network dedicated to providing kids and their families entertainment they can watch together. The network has ordered 26 episodes for season five. 
    "My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic" follows the magical Princess Twilight Sparkle and her trusted assistant Spike, who live in Ponyville in the enchanted land of Equestria, along with her colorful pony friends - honest Applejack, generous Rarity, kind Fluttershy, loyal Rainbow Dash and fun-loving Pinkie Pie. Together, they teach one another valuable lessons about the most powerful magic of all - the magic of friendship. 
    "My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic" features key voice talent including Tara Strong, Cathy Weseluck, Andrea Libman as well as Tabitha St. Germain and Ashleigh Ball, who both also provide voice to characters of the Hub Network's "Littlest Pet Shop." The series is executive produced by Chris Bartleman, Kirsten Newlands and Stephen Davis and was developed for television by Lauren Faust. In addition, season five will continue to include co-executive producers Meghan McCarthy and Jayson Thiessen, who is also the supervising director, as well as composer Daniel Ingram, who was nominated for a Daytime Emmy® Award for his previous work on "My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic."

    Note: Season 4 was part of the 2014 TV season even though it debuted in 2013. It only makes sense that Season 5 will debut in 2014 as part of the 2015 TV season. Thanks to Masem for bringing this to my attention.
