Discovery Family recently put out a press release regarding our favorite show!
(Miami, FL) – Exciting new adventures are on the horizon for the Mane 6 and some very special celebrity guests in the continuation of the seventh season of MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC, returning to Discovery Family on Saturday, August 5 at 11:30a/10:30c with 15 half-hour episodes and brand-new characters including “Grand Pear” (William Shatner) and “Pear Butter” (Felicia Day). Additionally, new episodes of the Hasbro Studios’ produced animated series will stream live and on demand on Discovery Family GO, the network’s TV Everywhere app.
Our thoughts after the break!
Even though some fans have already viewed the first two episodes of the mid-season premiere thanks to our Australian friends, it’s always good news to hear that the end of the hiatus is upon us.
It’s very appropriate for us to be seeing a new unaired episode during the largest brony convention, BronyCon [August 11-13th.] The days of new pony episodes always turn into a party of sorts with fans all around the world joining various social media and streaming sites to talk about the new episode. This time however, many fans may not need to log into their website of choice to enjoy an episode with fellow fans. It isn’t the first time an episode aired alongside a large brony convention; BABScon had a showing of the season 7 premiere to the delight of everyone in attendance. Could BronyCon possibly obtain the legal rights to display and host what could be the largest brony meetup during an episode airing ever? If not, the echos of streaming video across hundreds of phones is sure to emanate through the convention.
One thing is sure: even though the hiatus of a little more than a month isn’t even close to the longest we’ve endured, already we’ve seen many fan-made works produced as a result of it. The increased number of fan works combined with the return of season seven and a bright light on the horizon rapidly approaching known as The My Little Pony Movie are sure to bring the fandom’s hype to the maximum.
