The first part of this story, “Siege,” brought six half-hour episodes to Netflix over the summer. It’s excellent. The won’t-ever-die toy line-turned-multimedia juggernaut is realized in more realistic and nuanced tones than we’ve typically come to expect from the Michael Bay-led series of Hollywood blockbusters.
Earthrise picks up where Siege left off, with key members of the Autobot faction fleeing Cybertron – and seemingly headed for Earth – while some allies remained behind in a continued stance against Megatron and the Decepticons.
We don’t have a release date for this one yet, but Netflix promises it’s “coming soon.”
