An all-new season of Hasbro Studios’ smash hit animated series My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic will debut on Discovery Family on April 4 with two back-to-back premiere episodes beginning at 11 a.m. ET / 10 a.m. CT. Full of new adventures, characters and discoveries, Season 5 of MLP kicks off with a one-hour special and will explore the magic of the cutie marks as the series goes on.
The premiere episode will see the “Mane 6” meeting newcomer Starlight Glimmer when they are summoned to solve a friendship problem only to find a utopian village in which everyone has given up their Cutie Marks. At first, the village seems a happy place, but it soon becomes clear that Starlight Glimmer has a vastly different and rather sinister view on friendship and the individual talents that make Equestria’s ponies so special.
Further highlights fans can expect in Season 5 include a celebrity guest voice role performed by Tony Award-winner Lena Hall, the show’s 100th episode, fun holiday specials and several new original songs.
