Live-Action Transformers TV Show Reportedly In The Works, Set After Bumblebee Movie
Allspark user Sonerec725 just alerted us via our Discord server, that a live action Transformers TV Show is reportedly in the works! Apparently wegotthiscovered.com reports that their sources divulged to them that the Transformers franchise is set to headline its own big budget live-action show, but take this with a grain of salt as there has not been official confirmation yet.

After earning over $4.8 billion at the global box office across six installments, it can’t be argued that the Transformers franchise doesn’t have a lot of fans, but it would also be fair to say that critics have never warmed to the series quite as much as audiences did. Michael Bay’s time at the helm was marked by chaotic action scenes, incomprehensible stories and woeful writing, with reviews getting progressively worse every time a new movie was released.
However, Bumblebee proved that in the hands of somebody else, a Transformers film could be something else entirely and maximize the potential of the concept. Travis Knight’s prequel was incredibly well-received, but despite earning $468 million globally, its financial performance was a lot less than what the studio were used to from the franchise, which left the fate of its planned sequel a bit uncertain.
Of course, we already know that Paramount are set to soft reboot the series in the near future, but we’ve also now heard from our sources – the same ones who told us about the aforementioned reboot months before the news broke – that the Transformers are set to headline their own big budget live-action show. Yes, that’s right, it seems the property is headed to television again.
