I spoke to a multitude of people within the fandom to find out what they plan on doing after the show finishes. Some will be immensely saddened by the news; others will welcome the decision to bring the show to its natural conclusion. Others are apathetic, caring little about when and how the show is brought to an end.
I have put together five comments from different people that represent various attitudes towards the end of the show. Of the five of them, who do you agree most with, and what will your personal reaction be once new episodes of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic stop being released?
More on this topic can be found here:
It will end eventually. I'll be a bit sad, then I'll go find another show to watch.
You want to know what I think?
When it does finally end, I'll just be happy knowing that the shows existence brought happiness to everyone who got into it, as well as helping people realize the importance of challenging gender roles.
Also, comment #5 seems easily annoyed.
My stand on the matter is that I would care less if the show were to end. It's just another show to me. Yet it's one of my favorites, next to Sherlock and any science or history show.
I'll survive until Generation 5 and the Michael Bay movie in 2030.
Ha, no, seriously, if the likes of Ninja Turtles, Star Trek, Doctor Who, and countless others have taught us anything, it's that when a fanbase grows to love something enough it's given a life above and beyond the actual canonical product, one which endures far beyond its original run. And the fandom for this particular franchise has reached such levels that the show itself has actually become almost small in comparison!
But if you guys need someone new to prepare yourself for the ultimate end coming, ya'll should start watching Gravity Falls like I have. It's cute but for the older audience has serious mysteries for the watchers to figure out. Secret codes, binary codes, secret messages...
Oh, and it's creepy as hell when you get to certain episodes; season 2 is dark already.
pardon my language but it seriously does get creepy. but it's fun.
Alicorns live very long so it would probably end with everypony dying except Twilight.
Even then, if they were smart, Hasbro would try to integrate elements of FiM into their other franchises, and probably would launch a series about Equestria Girls, given that it would still last in appeal. If handled correctly, it could handle grade-school issues such as bullying, cheating, relationships, etc. quite effectively, much how FiM has handled many other moral dilemmas.
Remember, you either end a series and people will try to reboot it, or you see your series last too long, leading to the series getting stale, which further leads to low-quality work, atrocious execution, and overall overstaying your welcome. Remember, a series either dies a Samurai Jack or lives long enough to see them become Spongebob Squarepants. Nobody wants to see ANYTHING become the next Spongebob.
