It’s been a year since Netflix announced that they will be dropping their animated Transformers: War for Cybertron series, and now, they’ve finally released the trailer for the brand new program. In Feb. 2019, the streaming platform stated that the show will be a three-season trilogy following the initial war on the robot alien planet that morphed the Transformers world into the classic ’80s cartoon and Michael Bay films of today.
