Season 5 (2015)

A fifth season of Friendship Is Magic, consisting of 26 episodes, was officially announced in May 2014, with a tentative broadcast slated for Q2 2015.[3] Teasers for the season were provided by the show staff at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, including episodes centered around Twilight coping with the loss of the original library, the entire Pie family, Princess Luna dealing with a nightmare, and a 100th special episode focusing on the background characters. The staff also showed a brief animatic video from the first planned episode, showing the ability of Twilight's castle to direct the main characters to problems around Equestria. This will be the first season to air on the rebranded Discovery Family Channel.
