From what I can tell, it will in like one or two seasons, based on the Generation 5 leaks.
I don't think Hasbro gets that people aren't really gonna get hyped for this franchise anymore, g5 is gonna come out and it will under preform dramatically from their pov.
Eh, I don't know, I guess we'll have to wait and see.
I don't think it will have that big boom in viewership like Friendship is Magic did, nor the commotion around it, though. I think it'll pretty much just be the current viewership of FiM switching over to see Gen5, with some dropping out and a few joining in. I really hope it does well, but only time will tell.
but do you really think this franchise is worth it?
It's more worth it than hoping it doesn't. Most any franchise is worth hoping it does well, especially ones that have been going on this long.
Plus, Hasbro's never going to get rid of MLP, so it's better to hope the new generation succeeds than it ending up going from failed reboot to failed reboot. Ending with a bang rather than a whimper, y'know?
So… What do y’all think of the final episodes?
I honestly would have preferred to see the villains reformed or something, but it is what it is.
I think the last episode was a nice mirror to the season 1 end.
