Bronies and pony fans, grab your tissues. The upcoming ninth season of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic will be the series final journey to Equestria and we are stamping our hooves in disapproval!
The final season will feature past actors Patton Oswalt and Weird Al Yankovich and follows the Mane 6 as they take on their most challenging adventure yet––the retirement of Princess Celestia and Princess Luna and taking the reigns of the entire kingdom. The 26-episode season will begin airing on Saturday, Apr. 6 on Discovery Family and you’ll want to watch the surprisingly moving trailer to see just how emotional this season promises to be!
Before we have to say goodbye to Ponyville forever, Discovery Family will air a weeklong “Pony Palooza” marathon leading up to the season debut. Starting Mar. 30 at 6 a.m., catch up on Equestria Girls, followed by the world premiere of Equestria Girls: Spring Breakdown at 11:30 a.m.
Then grab your popcorn and settle in for a binge watch of episodes from the past eight seasons of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic starting at 6 a.m. Sunday, Mar. 31. Episodes will run during the daytime for the entire week leading up to the final season premiere on Saturday, Apr. 6.
Not to be gone forever, Hasbro announced at the 2019 New Year Toy Fair that a CGI My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic movie is actually in the works and slated for a 2021 release. As far as we’re concerned, it can’t come soon enough!
