After some divisive live-action movies, Transformers are heading back to animation with the War For Cybertron trilogy, which kicks off on Netflix with Part One: Siege.
The all-new anime programme offers a modernised retelling of the Transformers origin story, which sees their home planet devastated by a war between the Autobots and the Decepticons.
Critics have been wowed by the show’s breathtaking style of animation and production design, which packs all the vivid personality that Michael Bay’s blockbusters consistently failed to capture.
Fans will be pleased to hear that this isn’t the last we’ll see of this striking new vision either, as Netflix has greenlit a trilogy of War For Cybertron shows, based on the recent toyline of the same name.

When is Transformers: War For Cybertron chapter 2 released on Netflix?
There’s no confirmed release date for chapter two of Transformers: War For Cybertron and its possible that the next season could take slightly longer to get here than the first.
After all, part one was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, so if the illness continues to be a global issue in the months to come, production could also be held up on the sequel.
However, if complications can be largely avoided, we’d expect part two to arrive sometime in the next 12 months, following a similar release pattern to previous animated trilogy Prime Wars.
