Transformers: War for Cybertron: Siege

Netflix’s new Transformers series is looking pretty bleak

Get it together, Optimus, you’ve got three seasons to get through.

Siege is the first in a planned trilogy of animated series, of six episodes each, following a reimagined version of the original Transformers animated series plot from the 80s. It takes place in the final days of the Autobots’ failed uprising against Megatron and his Decepticons. This is what happens when you bring a truck to a jet fight.

Megatron is planning to use the Allspark to forcibly convert everyone over to the Decepticon cause and Optimus is just having a very bad day, okay? Some might say it’s time for a tactical retreat to a backwater planet, so that you might endanger a less technologically advanced, far more squishy and organic species with your civil war.


Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy: Siege will be available on Netflix from 30 July 2020.
