Well, the weekend after The Walking Dead season 5 wraps up, and the same day as International TableTop Day, season 5 of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic arrives!  In this post, I am going to talk about what to expect, and you get to see some videos as well! The premiere will feature the character Starlight Glimmer, and yes, it looks like everypony is equal, including their cutie marks.

Here is the official synopsis from Hasbro.

In the Season 5 premiere of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, the Mane 6: Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Rarity and Applejack meet 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 look, the ponies in this village appear happy, 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. The season is full of Cutie Mark Magic!

This cliff-hanger episode heralds a season filled with surprises and special treats for viewers, including the appearance of celebrity guest voice Tony Award-winner Lena Hall, the series’ exciting 100th episode, fun holiday specials and several new, original songs soon to be fan-favorites. In this season, viewers will be introduced to new characters and see background characters brought to the forefront for the first time, all as part of a journey that embraces such themes as individuality, coming of age, facing fears and achieving your dreams.

So we are going to see a lot of new and exciting characters this season.  And yes, this season will air on Discovery Family, the season premiere will air on Saturday, April 4th at 10 am Central.  New episodes will air at 10 am Central each Saturday.  At least the ponies are not in The Walking Dead, where horses don’t do very well around zombies.
