Could G5 be as big as G4?

Post by CastletonSnob (?) » Fri Jun 21, 2019 8:03 pm

Supposedly, G5 will premiere in 2021.

Is there any chance of G5 being as big, or maybe even bigger, than G4, or did Hasbro just catch lightning in a bottle with G4?

Lightning in a bottle, most likely.

One of the biggest things G4 had to help it early on was, ironically, the 'End of Creator Driven Media' article that actually enticed people to check the show out.

G5 is not going to get that kind of attention, nor will it have G4's advantage of being a quality show coming after generations of sterotypically girly girl shows meant to hock toys first and be a show...maybe. G5 has to meet G4's bar and that's a high bar to hit.

I doubt it. It was one of those rare things this time around and even it was more a fad than massive.

And given it will apparently be 2 years between series? And Hasbro's more evergreen ip mindset? It'll most likely just be a watered down G4 anyways. See Transformers.

I doubt it. It was sort of flash in the pan, it just seemed like all the stars aligned for something like this to come into existence like it did.

I'll watch it, and then I'll fix it with fanfics.

Or maybe it'll be good! Kid's shows are allowed to be good now. It's a possibility.
