You know, considering that we may not see the new series till 2021 or later, I wonder if they will make specials to tide us over till the new series is ready.  Maybe a true Grand Finale that will wrap everything up.

The Brony fandom is a very big $$$$$ input for Hasbro, so I guess the answer is a possible yes.

I can't believe they would end on 9 instead of 10. Think about it, the show initially aired 10/10/2010. All those fucking tens. My OCD is not liking this decision one bit!

Here's hoping G5 gives us a beautiful new interpretation of Equestria complete with a (good) new art style, a entirely new Mane cast, and a continuation to the incredible wit and charm present in G4.

The leaks mentioned at least two post series specials will be produced, with Rainbow Roadtrip being one of them :huh:. Things are more vague with EG, but I think it’ll last a bit longer :huh:

9 seasons actually makes sense to me as sort of a 3 act structure. Act 1 was Twilight's rise to an Alicorn, Act 2 was the redemption of Discord and Starlight Glimmer.

Except Starlight, I’m sure she will revert back to her evil self by betraying the Mane Six...much like Cartman did in S20.

March 8 at 6 P.M. with a one hour movie, then regular episodes will air Sundays at 4 P.M. starting March 17. It will be on Cartoon Network.

Thank you again for the recommendation! I watched the one hour DC Superhero Girls special tonight and saw a ton of similarities to MLP in the show including Tara Strong,voice of Twilight of course, voicing one of the main characters! I recommend other bronies check it out at least once. :)

I have been saying season 9 was the final season since season 4, actually. It's been confirmed by hasbro from a long time ago that this is exactly what they intended from at least season 3 or so.

All they said back then was that they planned to continue MLP through 2019. It wasn't confirmed that it would stop after that. They still could've continued it beyond that, and even then, they could've been referring to G4 as a whole and not the show.

I will miss Gen 4. But it had a good run and I am glad we got as many seasons as we did.

The final season will be the last FIM project made by DHX, and other than two specials , there was no mention of any further G4 horse projects mentioned in the leaks :mlp_huh:. However, other studios making small scale G4 horses doesn’t sound far fetched either, as between the series finale, and the G5 movie, is a large gap, and I don’t think Hasbro wants a year without some horse presence

I will say this: I really want Starlight to betray the Mane Sixso badly, because I always wanted that to happen.

You know? Many of you may remember, but every time a new milestone in the FIM universe is about to occur, I upload videos of the 72 hours in Majora’s Mask, ending with this the midnight before with this as a joke

I do it before a premiere, finale, an EG movie or special, and I did it once in the pony movie..... I won’t post that for the series finale. I don’t think it fits my mood for joking. I’ll post something more dignified, more goodbye worthy :adorkable:

I thought the Majora's Mask countdown was my thing! Well Great minds think alike!

You said the same thing about the CMC losing their cutie marks and friendships. Which is very unlikely. It simply wouldn't do to have a character undo many episodes worth of growth. Not Starlight and not the CMC.

Eventually it will happen for sure.

Is there really any reason to believe that a highly implausible theory with no evidence supporting its occurrence both in-universe and otherwise will "happen for sure"?

Something interesting could happen, with whoever. Something the show has been lacking evercsince Discord turned is a good rogue character. Someone not on either side, except their own. What would happen if Trixie did something stupid that really hurt Starlight? She still seems very vulnerable, to me anyway.

You're right about the show's tendency to pull twists and status quo shifts (since season 3, anyways, although I actually thought that Discord's reformation was a compelling concept considering his motivations were theoretically the moral ambiguous of any of the pre-S4 villain roster due to his chaos stemming from his own self-serving tendencies); I was actually referring to the fact that there was no evidence that the CMC would permanently lose their marks (a concept which neither the show nor the crew has ever implied to be feasible) 'for sure'.

What's going to be sad about the final season 9 like most ending is certain death of a favorite character at the end of this show hopefully not princess Twilight Sparkle get's killed by Grogar I rainboom hope I'm wrong ?

I have got no idea how you conclude such a thing. AFAIK nopony did ever in the show directly.

This show is reaching it's end. Perhaps there will be some direct-to-DVD releases (Worked for Scooby Doo)

The one thing that I still want to see is Scootaloo's parents

I cannot believe that the ninth season will be the last season of the Friendship is Magic era. :( We want more with the show of My Little Pony as we expect for the next decade: the next generation but to keep the Mane 6 ponies and potentially keep the same design as the fourth generation.
