Here’s the synopsis, via JoBlo: TRANSFORMERS: WAR FOR CYBERTRON TRILOGY: SIEGE begins in the final hours of the devastating civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons. The war that has torn apart their home planet of Cybertron is at a tipping point. Two leaders, Optimus Prime and Megatron, both want to save their world and unify their people, but only on their own terms. In an attempt to end the conflict, Megatron is forced to consider using the Allspark, the source of all life and power on Cybertron, to “reformat” the Autobots, thus “unifying” Cybertron. Outnumbered, outgunned, and under SIEGE, the battle-weary Autobots orchestrate a desperate series of counterstrikes on a mission that, if everything somehow goes right, will end with an unthinkable choice: kill their planet in order to save it.
The series features the voice talents of Jake Foushee (Optimus Prime), Jason Marnocha (Megatron), Linsay Rousseau (Elita-1), Joe Zieja (Bumblebee), Frank Todaro (Starscream), Rafael Goldstein (Ratchet), Keith Silverstein (Jetfire), Todd Haberkorn (Shockwave, Red Alert), Edward Bosco (Ultra Magnus, Soundwave), Bill Rogers (Wheeljack), Sophia Isabella (Arcee), Brook Chalmers (Impactor), Shawn Hawkins (Mirage), Kaiser Johnson (Ironhide), Miles Luna (Teletraan I, Cliffjumper) and Mark Whitten (Sideswipe, Skywarp).
Rooster Teeth (gen:LOCK) serves as producer on the project, while Polygon Pictures (Star Wars: Resistance) supplied the animation. Long-time Transformers veteran FJ DeSanto (Transformers: Titans Return, Transformers: Power of the Primes) takes up the mantle of showrunner. The upcoming series has already tapped several contributing writers, including George Krstic (Megas XLR), Gavin Hignight (Transformers: Cyberverse), and Brandon Easton (Agent Carter, Transformers: Rescue Bots).
The Transformers have seen quite the resurgence since their first live-action movie back in 2007. There’s the stand-alone series Transformers: Cyberverse, which currently airs on the Cartoon Network, the upcoming Prime Wars trilogy, featuring Mark Hamill and Ron Perlman, and the most recent big-screen adventure, Bumblebee, seems to have endeared audiences with its re-approach to the franchise.
