Transformers: Power of the Primes writer FJ DeSanto is set to showrun the series, which will be produced by Polygon Pictures.
According to a statement provided to Deadline, when War for Cybertron will premiere on Netflix in 2020, it’ll introduce a completely new style to the world of Transformers and explore parts of the mythos fans have never seen. We’ll bring you more as we know it.
