As someone who enjoys the series, I would be disappointed. But to be honest, I wouldn't be surprised. With no release date, and pushing it back, it worries me. I do know it's done though (season 2) ans new toys are bring released, so it seems strange they would scrap it. But who knows.

Maybe the idea is to time it so the finale comes right before Age of Extinction hits theaters? It's the HUB's only non-cancelled TF series at present, so that might make some kind of business sense.

The Hub has never had a cancelled Transformers series on air aside from re-runs of Animated.

...and G1 and Prime. What, is there a distinction between "cancelled" and just "ended"?

..........Yes. :roll:

Being cancelled indicates that there were plans to continue the series, but the channel network ended the show because the series wasn't getting enough viewers or there were complications with continuing the show and therefore needs to end.

There's a difference between that and ending naturally, which both Prime and G1 did.

Since it takes 6-12 months to make each episode, canceling season 2 at this point - mere weeks before it airs - wouldn't make any sense. Maybe after this series, especially if the rumors are correct and the post-AoE show treads a more middle ground between Prime's (unearned) ultra-serious tone, and Rescue Bots' more lighthearted tone.

I really hope they don't end up axing this show, but if they did at this point I think its safe to say the episodes already produced would surely get released to DVD or streaming somewhere. It is just crazy how long its been since the first season ended, I mean that was back in October 2012 right? I don't think shows taking 15+ months between seasons is ever a good sign.

With the start of previews of upcoming toy lines for the show (even though I am not a fan of Boatwave, Bumblebike, and Monstertrucktimus Prime) and the knowledge that the show is actually complete, I doubt it will get the axe before season 2 starts. There is strong speculation that season 2 is the last, but I imagine at least season 2 will air.

August 18, 2012, but yeah the wait time between seasons for this show has been asinine. This show is far less expensive to make than TF: Prime ever was and yet that show kept churning out seasons on a yearly basis. By comparison, this show shouldn't be taking so long to release if the production cost is so convenient.

I think the simplest explanation of all is most likely what's happened ... the new episodes were pushed back to time when new toys will be available at stores.

The Energize part of the line was just a subline imprint like Unicron Battles, Primus Unleashed, Allspark Power, etc. I'd be surprised if the 2nd season of the show didn't feature the new molds on some level.

I bought them because, at the time, I suspected that the Energize energy hand weapons tools would be featured in the show (which seemed to be supported by that one commercial for them that used the same animation of the cartoon).

Being a subline imprint doesn't necessarily mean "filler until the next fiction comes", as Battle for the Spark, the Unicron Battles, the Powerlinx Battles, Primus Unleashed, Beast Hunters, and Predacons Rising all had toys of things that appeared in each of their respective shows.

At this rate, Rescue Bots & Beware the Batman will wind up like Young Justice and Green Lantern TAS. These delays are ridiculous. (Wow. Shows how much I care for Rescue Bots :???: )

I think all the animated shows that I have liked getting canned in recent years has made me gun shy whenever any delay or scheduling change pops up. Green Lantern TAS, Young Justice, Thundercats, GI Joe Renegades was growing on me, and I was even willing to give Voltron Force a shot at a second season. Here is hoping Rescue Bots gets to conclude with a solid ending this season if this is the last we get of it.

A New Match Game Entitled “Hero Hunt” Launches on Hubnetwork.com


LOS ANGELES — “Transformers Rescue Bots,” animated series, created especially for younger TRANSFORMERS fans, returns for its second season on Saturday, March 1, with two all-new, back-to-back episodes starting at 1:00 p.m. ET/ 10 a.m. PT, on the Hub Network, a destination for kids and their families. Beginning on Saturday, March 8, new episodes of the show will air at 1:30 p.m. ET/10:30 a.m. PT. The series is produced by Hasbro Studios.

The second season of “Transformers Rescue Bots” kicks off with action-packed, episode “Road Trip”, where a tricky transporter takes Cody for a crazy ride and Kade takes on a high-flying rescue mission. The second episode, “Sky Forest” has Cody and Frankie going head to head in a town inventor contest, leading to a jealous divide between the two. To make matters worse, Frankie's contest entry gets out of control, not only threatening her friendship with Cody and the Bots, but the safety of the entire island.


In the digital Rescue Bots game “Hero Hunt,” fans can get the Bots ready to roll by making the correct match and the more matches they make, the more points they score. Players will be challenged to complete each mission and see if they can make it to the end of the game. Viewers can get into the action at http://hubnetwork.com/herohunt.



“Transformers Rescue Bots” features a group of Autobots charged with a mission to protect and learn about humans. Stationed by Optimus Prime on a technologically advanced island, the Rescue Bots — Heatwave, Boulder, Blades and Chase — team with the Burns family of first responders, including a police chief, firefighter, rescue pilot and engineer to keep peace and safety in the city. Alongside their human friends, the Rescue Bots learn teamwork and heroism. The half-hour series brings family, heart, humor and adventure to the Transformers brand.



The series features an ensemble of voice talent including, LeVar Burton (“Star Trek: The Next Generation”) as Doc Greene, Lacey Chabert ("Party of Five") as Dani Burns, Élan Garfias (“The Hangover”) as Cody Burns, Maurice LaMarche (“Futurama”) as Chief Charlie Burns, Jason Marsden (“Step by Step”) as Kade Burns, Shannon McKain (“The Assignment”) as Graham Burns, Diamond White (“X Factor”) as Francine Greene, Jeff Bennett (“Johnny Bravo”) as Huxley Prescott, Steve Blum (“Transformers Prime”) as Heatwave, Parvesh Cheena (“Outsourced”) as Blades, D.C. Douglas (“NCIS: Los Angeles”) as Chase, Imari Williams (“Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City”) as Boulder and Peter Cullen (“Transformers Prime”) as Optimus Prime.



The series is produced by Hasbro Studios, executive produced by Stephen Davis and developed for television by Jeff Kline, Nicole Dubuc and Brian Hohfeld.

80 weeks.

That's how long we will have had to wait between seasons.

80... weeks!

From August 18, 2012 to March 1, 2014. That's almost 19 months!

Words cannot describe how much there is no excuse for such an ungodly amount of time that is for a between-season gap. Especially with how they completed the season mid-LAST YEAR! :BANG_HEAD:

From the main discussion thread:
Sabrblade wrote:Episode 27 -

You know, with the MHQ being a Cybertronian-sized vehicle, there might not be that many roads/streets big enough for it to be driven on.

Heh, Kade likes hummus.

This is Heatwave's first driving lesson. As a robot moded driver, that is. Kade's teaching him.

Is that a school bus with rocket boosters?!! :shock: Dude! Where were those when I rode the bus?! :P

Theme song sequence looks to be unchanged from season 1, but still just as good as ever.

Heh, Blades is doing DDR with Frankie.

Chase and Heatwave are playing a two-player Cybertronian board game whose Cybertronian name is untranslatable (Heatwave thinks "Chase Always Wins" sounds close). It looks like a giant hologram version of Connect Four but it played kinda like a vertical version of Chess, and with medieval warrior characters like a guard, a flank, and an archer. Doc helped build the game for them.

DOC AND BOULDER ARE BUILTING THE ENERGIZE GEARRRRRRRR!!! WOOOOHHOOOOOO!!! Though, they appear to be just light blue colored, physical metal devices rather than being purely energy based as the toyline had us believe.

The teleportation device is called the "Vacuum Accelerator".

Graham has installed a mobile command center inside the MHQ.

Emergency dispatch. It's go time!

Uh oh. The teleporter came back... and took the MHQ and Cody away with it.

The parachuter in danger is Taylor, who was the pilot from "The Lost Bell" that Dani took a liking to.

Taylor's voice is DEEP! Also, he's had EMT training on the mainland.

So this episode has two danger fronts simultaneous of each other. That's always fun.

Boiling chips!

Oh boy. Atop the highest peak of Mount Griffin. This is bad.

Taylor's a pretty resourceful guy.

Blades is one tough litter chopper to carry all that weight on his winch: The entire MHQ plus the other three Bots and Cody.

And now they've warped to the drive-in.

Ah, so it was the MHQ's GPS signal that was overriding the teleporter's controls.

I love it when this show acknowledges when one of its characters does something stupid that they regret. :lol:

Heatwave was one Lobbing champ three years running.

I also love it when the show's characters acknowledge that they have no idea what's going on. :lol:

Sure is a darn good coincidence that that particular part of the woods that MHQ teleported into just happened to be open enough for it to fit. :roll:

WOAH!!! Heatwave almost just steamrolled over that bear with the MHQ!!! Don't tell PETA.

LOL, Heatwave roared back at the bear. :lol:

Ha, they warped right in front of Mayor Luskey down at City Hall.

ROGER CRAIG SMITH voiced Taylor! Sonic the Hedgehog himself, folks!

This first episode of season 2 felt really welcoming for a reintroduction to this show and to its characters. Feels so great to be seeing these people again and still doing what they do best. And now we see out first glimpse at what their new life is like with the Greenes now in the know of the Autobots and the MHQ as a part of the team. Though, there clearly seems to be more work to be had to get everyone used to the new changes, which is a good thing since it lets room for further development to come down the road. And the foreshadowing to the Energize gear was a nice touch, but let's see where they go from here. On with the next episode!



Episode 28 -

That fruit-picking robot looks kinda like EVE from WALL-E, but with four long arms.

Mr. Alper!

Bit of CGI there when Boulder rammed into that mound of fertilizer.

Oh dear. I don't think I'm gonna like this character. The only of the airborne fruit picker is some snooty rich girl named Priscilla Pynch.

For the contest, Cody's idea is a portable sprinkler suit that firefighters/rescuers could wear to enter any blaze as it would spray water in all directions to protect them. Frankie's idea, however, is self-sustaining rain forest towers built in urban areas, which would clean the air of carbon dioxide, produce oxygen, and sustain an endangered ecosystem. Since they can't agree on one idea, they're going to enter separately instead of together.

So Frankie's tower is the titular "Sky Forest".

And Frankie's idea won (that was quick). Looks like Priscilla is a sore loser since she tells Mayor Luskey to forget about an donations to his reelection campaign from her family, and her invention tries to steal his toupee. Brat.

Thanks a lot, Huxley, for making things worse for Cody. He and Frankie are not "bitter enemies".

Boulder: "Frankie and Cody are enemies? When did this happen?"
Heatwave: "It's tough to lose, especially to a friend."
Blades: "If they're enemies, we'll have to choose sides. That's what happens in every buddy movie, I think it's called 'The Bro Code.'"
Chase: "I find no reference to this code in the civil statutes. But, I do value loyalty. Cody, we stand with you! Solidarity!"
Heatwave: "Team Cody all the way."
Blades: "We'll teach her for being smarter than you!"
Heatwave: *looks at Blades*
Blades: "...What?"

Even though the tower is complete, it'll take about ten years for the rainforest to grow. Sorry, Mayor, no tourist attraction just yet.

What the--?! Suddenly there's a bunch of flora growing on the tower. As Chase put it, "Apparently someone rushed mother nature."

Aw, Mayor! Rapid-growth formula in the irrigation system is an accident waiting to inevitably happen! Especially something from the Best Left Forgotten section of the Hall of Inspiration, and especially something labeled "aggressive growth".

The Sky Forest is like something straight out of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory, only with actual plants instead of candy.

...And more deadly, seeing as how the plants are now trying to kill Frankie and Cody.

Sure are a lot of puffins in the Sky Forest.

Seems like Mr. Harrison has finally gotten the hang of his heli-pack. Let's see how long that lasts.

EEEEEEE!!! They're activating the Energize tools! "Power Up and Energize!" They pull them out from reaching behind their backs not unlike how the Beast Wars characters grabbed their own weapons. Chase has his toys' claw, Boulder has is toys' drill (as seen in the last episode but not in this episode), and Heatwave had his Minicon figure's axe instead of his transformable figure's dual-nozzled water cannon. The axe also makes laser sound effects with each swing. I guess they're at least partly energy-based in that they're physical tools that radiate energy instead of being like tool-based lightsabers. As for Blades, he hasn't activated his yet.

As is typical of her kind of character, Priscilla is ungrateful for her rescue. :roll:

The one weakness of these plants is saltwater. Makes sense.

Nice thinking of Cody using the remaining droplets in his suit's water tubes to scare off the vines wrapped around the valve.

Kade: "Longest twenty minutes of my life." - :lol: :lol:

Okay, Priscilla giving the mayor a bill for her destroyed hover picker was pretty funny.

The tower has been disassembled and relocated to Wayward Island, a nearly inaccessable atoll off of the coast of Griffin Rock.

And so Frankie and Cody will now share the first place title, as Cody's idea proved very reliable in the end.

Priscilla was voiced by Katherine McNamara.

Another good one with a lot of heart and ingenuity. I liked how, aside from the walking stereotype that Priscilla was, this episode played around with cliches and expectations, avoiding going down the obvious routes with them. Frankie and Cody could have easily become harsh rivals in the competition, but their rivalry was brief and remained consistently friendly. Frankie could have easily gotten caught up in all the attention she was getting and had it all go to her head, but she remained in character and never once let her ego get inflated. If one hadn't seen the previous episode, then the Energize tools could have been seen a Deus ex Machina items that would have saved the day in an instant, but were instead only some extras that were thrown in as a bonus and were far from the subject of today's victory. And most of all, the mayor himself turned out to be responsible for the day's catastrophe, as he's always the one blaming others for the disasters, when this time he has no one to blame but himself, and he sure does come to regret it. It's little things like these that help to make this show be so great.
