The reason for fewer Season 3 episodes!

There is now an explanation for why Season 3 only has 13 episodes! According to the Hasbro determined less investment in the show was necessary to maintain the same revenue. Go here for the actual quote, and go here for the full report.

To make it perfectly clear, FIM wasn't the only show that has a small season: in fact, it's their most popular series that have half-seasons right now, and it's unlikely that Hasbro will simply  end some of their most popular series. It seems the logic is that if you have some episodes to rerun for kids to watch, you don't need as many new episodes to keep a successful series going, BUT  it was made clear enough that the folks at Hasbro know you still need some new stuff.
