The deal is for Transformers: Cyberverse, which will roll out to Europe, Middle East, Africa and Latin America late 2018.

Hasbro Studios has announced an international deal with Cartoon Network to distribute Season One of the hit animated series, Transformers: Cyberverse to Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America. The deal includes both linear and digital distribution to bring the show, which is already a hit on Cartoon Network in the US, to the rest of the world.

Finn Arnesen, SVP global distribution & development at Hasbro Studios, commented: “We’re very excited to continue to grow our relationship with Cartoon Network. It is the perfect partner to bring Transformers: Cyberverse to an international audience and allow fans around the world to enjoy a new Transformers saga that’s truly More Than Meets the Eye.”

In Transformers: Cyberverse, Bumblebee is on a critical mission where lives are at stake, only he can’t remember what the mission is. His best friend Windblade has found him to help repair his damaged memory chips. With each recovered memory, Bumblebee rediscovers his past adventures on Cybertron before coming to Earth. His past will shape him into becoming the hero we know today. As each memory is repaired, another clue comes to light that will lead them both to complete their shared mission to save their friends and Earth; however, the Decepticons are hot on their heels and time is running out.
