Transformers Prime Ending with Season 3
The final season begins March 22nd.
by Eric Goldman MARCH 1, 2013
The beginning of the end is here for Transformers Prime. The Hub have confirmed rumors that the series is coming to an end, announcing that the upcoming Season 3 of the animated series -- debuting Friday, March 22nd -- will be the final one for the show.
Titled Transformers Prime Beast Hunters, Season 3 will debut at 7:30pm ET on March 22nd, following a four-hour marathon (from 3:30-7:30pm) of episodes from Season 2.
As Season 3 begins, the survival of Optimus Prime is in doubt after Megatron’s destruction of the Autobot base on Earth, while the separated members of Team Prime try to reconnect after being scattered to the wind to prevent detection. This season will introduce the Predacons into the series – who, in this incarnation, are Dragon-like Transformers.
The third and final season will be comprised of 13 episodes, bringing the series to a total of 65 episodes by its conclusion. That will make it the second-longest run of any Transformers series after the original 1980s/"G1" series, which ran for 98 episodes.
New episodes will take a break a few weeks in, but starting Friday, April 19 (7:30 p.m. ET), the first four episodes of the new season will have special encore presentations that include “Autobits” — behind-the-scenes trivia with exclusive in-picture commentary designed to create an immersive viewing experience. Additional new episodes will resume in May.

What the article didn't mention was the previously mentioned DTV movie coming out towards the end of the season.
They're correct, this is the second longest running Transformers series in the franchise's 30 year history.
