Transformers: War for Cybertron-Earthrise Season 2 predictions

Quickly, I’ll summarize the first season of Transformers: War for Cybertron so beware of SPOILERS BELOW

The war on Cybertron featured a reigning Megatron and his onslaught of the Autobots, where Optimus Prime leads the few remaining Autobots to fight for democracy and freedom for all transformers-kind.

As hope dwindles, Prime and the Autobots decide to go on a mission for the Allspark then deciding that the future of Cybertron can’t be saved by the relic. Optimus Prime and the Autobots evade the Decepticons and use the space bridge to travel off-world with the Allspark. Optimus Prime and his team are believed dead but the finale end credit scene shows fans that they are not.

Transformers: War for Cybertron Season 2: Plot predictions

The end-credits scene in the finale of Transformers: War for Cybertron, Siege features a distress signal being received by the semi-sentinel computer Teletraan-1, this meaning that the Autobots survived their excursion(duh).

With the subtitle of the second season ‘Earthrise’, most people would believe that the Autobots would likely crash land on Earth, however, the official Hasbro toys description tells us a different story.

According to the Hasbro website, the description of the Earthrise toys states the following:

"“With unforeseen dangers lurking ahead and the Decepticons closing in from behind, the only way out for the Autobots is to find a way through. Both sides must navigate the perils of space and instantly adapt to battle anywhere in the cosmos.”"

These toy statements clearly tell us to expect the Autobots to be lost in space as Megatron begins the hunt for Optimus Prime and the Allspark. This hints to this season featuring space battles and chases as the Autobots try to evade the grasp of the Decepticons.

The constant chases and battles are likely for one if not both of the sides to end up on the planet Earth towards the end of the season to fit the subtitle for most of the season but mostly I suspect we should see a space voyage featuring chases and catastrophe.

Transformers: War for Cybertron: Returning/New characters

While most of the Autobots went off-world, a handful had to stay behind and fend off the Decepticons as the Autobots escaped.

The show did build some of the plot around Elita-1, Optimus’ right-hand female. Elita-1 is one of a handful of Autobots left on Cybertron after their use of the space bridge. The series alluded to some kind of a romantic relationship between the two so a dive into that story would be very interesting for fans to see.

Sideswipe, Chromia, and the-now Autobot Jetfire all mourn the apparent “deaths” of the Autobots as the space bridge only leaves dust behind.

I expect to see the role of Starscream increase as he has moved into second-in-command for the Decepticons. He constantly planned to overthrow Megatron and will definitely take steps to do so in this next season. I can envision Starscream beginning to plant seeds of doubt as the Autobots likely evade the Decepticons. This should be fun to watch as Megatron will have a war on two fronts if this is the case.

Once again the Hasbro toy line has already told us some characters to expect, old and new.

According to the toyline the following characters have action figures in the Earthrise collection: Optimus Prime, Starscream, Ironworks, Cliffjumper, Wheeljack, Scorponok, Double-Dealer, Rung, Astrotrain, and Heist.
