I guess it was about time that the show came to an end, yet the lessons learned during the making of this can be transfered over to the sucessor, so its had a good run of 9 seasons, a bunch of shorts and a movie that went to cinemas first instead of straight to DVD or something, plus a spin off with EG, its lasted longer than any TF series had.

Nine seasons is a damn good run for any animated series, much less one based on a toy line geared towards preteen girls. I just hope that Season Nine ends the show on a high note...and that both it and Season Eight see release on DVD.

I actually understand. TBH, nine seasons is a good run (despite some people saying it should have ended after a certain season, like Season 4). Nothing can last forever, and with some people not receiving season 8 well, it's best to end it now than keep it going and end up being as bad as SpongeBob as gotten (which despite most of the staff returining, the newer episode I hear are still hit or miss).
Hard to believe this is been the longest-running cartoon on Hub/Discovery Family, premiering along with the channel back in 2010. Hopefully, Hasbro gives this generation a finale that will leave everyone satisfied enough to move on.

There's also going to be another movie, and hey, gen 5 is waiting in the wings. We gave them what they wanted: we made my little pony profitable again and pushed it more fully back into public consciousness. IF they can keep the quality up; it'll pull a transformers and have a new series every few years. I'm looking forward to seeing what we get and what they come up with.

1 minute of (minimal) lights, (steady) camera and... ACTION FIGURES! (mostly Transformers) - Episode 031: Combiners and chest envy

Kinda wonder where that leaves Equestria Girls. One would assume it would also end or get a cast change to the G5 versions, but the way of corporate thinking can be mysterious sometimes. I wonder if Hasbro might hedge it's bets a little and keep the current Equestria Girls as is.

I've heard it spoken around on the web that somewhere Hasbro said Equestria Girls will continue after G4 ends.
Though I'm not really sure it can survive that way. Unless they plan on giving it it's own show, which I wouldn't put past them, but I also don't think will happen.

I'd watch it. It's never really been about the horses for me, the fact that the characters were horses in fim wasn't why I stuck around after being talked into watching the first episode.
it was the characters... so a show with the characters who aren't horses seems fine to me.
and no, no minty

Are we sure we want Minty? Remember, they very well might not use her personality from G3. They could do anything with her.
Minty: *walks out in the first episode of G5 wearing a backward's baseball cap and wearing socks* Sup peeps? It's M.C. Minty here, giving yall the 411 on socks. Check it they're all comfy and colorful and hip! HOLLA!
