THE HUB TELEVISION NETWORK UNVEILS
2012-‘13 PROGRAM SLATE WITH FOUR NEW ORIGINAL SERIES
JOINING EIGHT RETURNING ORIGINAL SERIES
“With the momentum of our successful first year, we’re building a slate of programs for the 2012-’13 season that continues our strategy of presenting series based on well-known names and beloved properties in the kids and family entertainment space,” said Ms. Loesch. “One of our advantages has always been the built-in strength and recognition of our programming. The success of that is evident in our large number of returning original series and in the exciting new original series. We’re confident that this lineup will further define us as the entertainment destination for kids and their families.”
The first of the new series to appear on The Hub will be “Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters” an all-new, action-packed animated series from Hasbro Studios premiering this summer. The series features the voices of popular actors Scott Wolf (“Party of Five”), Freddy Rodriguez (“Ugly Betty”), John DiMaggio (“Futurama” and “Pound Puppies”) and Phil LaMarr (“Mad TV”). “Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters” is an animated action-fantasy series that follows the adventures of a young hero, Ray, who possesses the rare ability to befriend and duel alongside fantastical creatures from a parallel dimension. The series is based on a re-imagination of the wildly successful Duel Masters property in Japan by Wizards of the Coast (Magic: The Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons) and Hasbro, Inc.
The programs expected to debut on The Hub in 2012-2013 are as follows:

TF: Prime is quickly replacing Beast Wars as my favourite TF show. I can't wait to see what happens.

Regardless, here's hoping it works in elements of Spiral Zone!
And I couldn't help but notice Care Bears! I wasn't aware Hasbro had acquired that franchise. Wonder if it'll have continuity with those CG DVDs that came out about 5 years ago.

Season 3 is officially ON! Loving that.
Update: The previous statement has now been retracted, looks like it was just a misunderstanding.............
Aw, man! Please disregard my last post. I totally misread the story C. Levitz posted here a couple days ago announcing the renewal of TF Prime. I thought it meant we were picked up for Season 3, but it was just announcing Season 2. So sorry about the mix-up!
