The Hub just announced on Facebook that it’s less than 30 days until their announcement of season 3.
The My Little Pony Friendship is Magic crew is hard at work on the new season! Just between us ponies, we’re less than 30 days away from announcing the season 3 premiere date/time!
Since the Crystal Empire DVD is set to be released December 4, the premiere has to air before that date. Also, the announcement is likely to happen four weeks (or a little more) prior to the air date, since that is when the listing companies would typically be supplied with their titles and episode synopses. With the announcement taking place before October 20, November 17 or possibly November 24 seem now like the “worst-case” dates for The Crystal Empire, Part 1 to air, but maybe we won’t have to wait that long.
