[[WordOfGod According to Hasbro]], ''Prime'' is a part of a greater continuity called the Franchise/TransformersAlignedUniverse and is intended to link up with other Transformers fiction such as ''VideoGame/TransformersWarForCybertron''. Because it is being worked on by different creative organizations, the individual works are not connected by a strict continuity but are considered part of a "continuity family" (much the same way as the G1 [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers cartoon]] and comics series are similar but separate entities).

The show is animated in CGI but carries a bit of a [[ForTheCelOfIt 2-D flair]]. The CGI made the show carry a high price tag which fortunately was made affordable by the success of Michael Bay's movies. The overall look and tone of the show follows closely with the [[Film/{{Transformers}} live-action films]] (with Optimus, Bumblebee and Megatron having similar designs) while it continues to take inspiration from many other Transformers incarnations, and it inspired a new MMO game, ''VideoGame/TransformersUniverse'', which was however ultimately cancelled over costs and delays. The show received critical acclaim overall and strong ratings. Most notably, it became the first ''Transformers'' series to win an Emmy since ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' (and not just one, but NINE).

The series slowly built a MythArc where the conflict has greater significance than originally believed, as Earth and Cybertron have been connected in the past. The first season details the return of Decepticon activity after [[NoodleIncident an unspecified earlier conflict]], with the Autobots bonding with their new human friends. [[TheStarscream Starscream's]] position in the Decepticon hierarchy falls apart as he deals with the return of [[BigBad Megatron]]. Developments in the season finale force Optimus and Megatron together, and they soon launch an arms race throughout the second season over ancient relics from Cybertron. The second season finale concerns a political dispute over the future of their home, and the third season, subtitled ''Beast Hunters'', deals with Megatron's plan to clone a new army of [[EliteMooks Predacons]], and a FinalBattle dealing with who controls [[GrandFinale the fate of Cybertron itself]]. An epilogue movie called "Predacons Rising" resolves lingering elements of the MythArc and seeds of the future are planted.
