Season 9 is not the end
Hello all my bronies, bronettes, Furs, Keto Maniacs and what ever you want to call yourselves welcome to another segment of my advice,
As you know I am a Brony, 38 mind you, but a Brony non the less. I have been a brony since Season 4 had just started up. I started going to meets, Cons and other events. So far this fandom has had it’s ups and downs and every twist imaginable.
In 2018 I went to a con called Brony Con back in July. I met Looney Turtle talked to Silverquil Jax Blade, AC Race Best, amongst others in this fandom. And yes I was also distraught when I heard the news that Brony Con is ending in 2019 and yes I will be there again next year for the big finale. And I hope this will bring a shiny hope to the fandom to grow and possibly Smaller Cons. Yeah it won’t be as big as the fandom has been. But that’s not what I am here to talk about.
I am here to talk about the doom and gloom of Season 9 being the finale. Some time ago there was some screen shots take around the time season 8 leaks where flooding Youtube and other sites. Mainly of Concept Characters and other things that looked authentic. But here’s the thing…IT’S NOT OFFICIAL! Anyone one with art talent or an art thief can make things like this all in our good ole friend photoshop and make some claims.
Reason why I think it’s false is there’s way TOO MANY loose ends for a 26 Episode season. We have A new villain, Queen Chrysalis, Cozy Glow and the Student Six to write and expand on. Season 8 episode 26 left a big open for Cozy’s return.
On top of that if you’re going to introduce us to all new characters why introduce them at the very end of the series seriously why? It makes no since in a story setting.
It would probably cut into Hasbro’s money since if they reboot the show it wouldn’t be the same characters, VA’s and you know what that means? No familiarity and attachments for the Gen 4 ponies, Now I’ll probably get arguments like “VA’s are going to want to leave at some time.” I get that but the Voice Actresses’ Like Andrea Libman, Tara Strong, Ashleigh Ball and the others are still young and work side Gigs as well. So I don’t really see them just leaving the Pony Team for a while. There’s still so many stories that can be written and more character development especially with the Student Six as we’re calling them.
So if we have a Theoretical Gen 5 in the foreseeable future and I do. Then what can Gen 5 be about? Will we just had 6 new characters that became the main focus in Season 8. The Student Six.
A show about the Student six would be a good way to pumping new blood and new ideas for the writers at Studio DHX and would and that’s a big could probably bring those that left due to no longer being of any interest in the show back. A passing of the torch mind you. All new Adventures with the mane six still being utilized but not in a big role. Maybe even downgraded to Background status and maybe a few talking roles. Heck maybe the mane six will give them assignments via the tree of Harmony after all the Tree saved them from certain doom and also made new elements for them.
I think Season 8 was the beginning of a developing plot turn.
Just imagine Yona, Ocellus, Sand Bar, Silverstream and the rest on funny, and learning adventures on developing themselves as better characters. Kind of like a “Reboot of sorts?”
Maybe even Cozy Glow will be a recurring villain like Chrysalis and won’t be reformed until season 14 or some time in the foreseeable future. Like I said There’s just way too many open ends that are loose and cannot be tied in one season alone. Unless if Princess Celestia decides to go Zordon and wipe out the current evil in Lost Galaxy. But I don’t see that happening since this is still a children’s show and death is not something to be taken lightly.
Then there’s the silly rumors like the Princess’s will not be in the next Gen which would mean that Studio DHX and Hasbro would have a crap ton of Solar and Lunar Republic fanboys on their front gates with Torches and pitch forks.
And with final words to my analysis I have one thing to say.
Until the day that Hasbro comes out officially and say’s “SEASON 9 is the end.” then I’ll believe it. After all the Internet is full of misinformation now a days and Season 9 is just the beginning of a new era.
