The ninth and final season of Lauren Faust’s animated television series My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic premiered on the Discovery Family channel in the United States. The series is based on Hasbro’s My Little Pony line of toys and animated works, and collectors often refer to it as the fourth generation, or “G4”, of the My Little Pony franchise.
Season 9 of the sitcom started on Discovery Family, an American pay television channel partly owned by Hasbro, on April 6, 2019, and finished with a three-part series finale on October 12. Twilight prepares to become the new monarch of Equestria following the retirement of Princess Celestia and Princess Luna in the final season.
At the same time, an evil ram named Grogar joins the deadliest foes of Twilight and her companions in a scheme to take over the realm, and the ponies must stop them once and for all.
Hasbro announced a ninth season on February 17, 2018, during the American International Toy Fair in New York. Season nine will include 26 episodes, according to a Gaumont TV Kids Guide. At the next year’s Toy Fair, it was announced that this would be the series’ final season.
This season’s writing began in late 2017. Patton Oswalt and “Weird Al” Yankovic stated in a March 2019 Discovery Family press release that they would return to reprise their roles as Quibble Pants and Cheese Sandwich, respectively.
According to series director Jim Miller, Discord mimicking Grogar was planned from the start of the season since they wanted Chrysalis, Tirek, and Cozy Glow to be the villains because they had a stronger relationship with the primary characters.

When Will My Little Pony Season 9 Come to Netflix?
Since the show’s debut on the streaming service in 2015, My Little Pony has had a tumultuous relationship with Netflix. There was speculation in 2018 that the series will be removed from Netflix.
The amount of seasons on Netflix varies by location, however, most territories have eight seasons. The final episode of season 9 aired on Discovery Family on October 12, 2019. It is unusual for Netflix to take this long to update My Little Pony after it airs on Discovery.
Season 9 is unlikely to be on Netflix because it is already accessible on Hulu. If season nine is released on Netflix, we anticipate it will be available in late 2020 or early 2021.
What to Expect in Season 9 of My Little Pony
Season 9 will pick off where Season 8 left off, with a stronger emphasis on the Young Six. Season 8 saw them, band, together to defeat Cozy, but we didn’t get to see their tales develop as we did with the Mane Six in season 1. Season 9 should put the Young Six’s devotion, courage, kindness, and flaws to the test.
The Mane Six’s plot is expected to conclude in season 9, with Twilight Sparkle taking over from Princess Luna and Princess Celestia. Twilight will most likely struggle to adjust to her new role, but her friends will be there to help her succeed.
Every My Little Pony season has had a villain, and we anticipate that season 9 will have the worst villain of all time. Perhaps an old evil with more strength will try to destroy Equestria, or the show’s makers will create a new villain. We anticipate that the Mane Six and the Young Six will band together to combat this new menace.
What Happened in Season 8 of My Little Pony?
My Little Pony Season 8 featured a continuation of the Mane Six’s plot. Princess Twilight discovered the existence of mystical realms outside of Equestria and started Twilight Sparkle’s School of Friendship with her pals. The magical school provided a safe sanctuary for ponies and non-ponies to come together and learn to be friendly to one another.
The Mane Six demonstrated that, despite being the new school’s teachers, their friendships were not ideal. Because the kids at the school looked up to them for guidance, the group’s conflicts were more significant. Season 8 introduced us to a wide cast of individuals as well as a new group of six buddies.
The Mane Six remained the major characters, but we saw Ocellus, Silverstream, Smolder, Gallus, Sandbar, and Yona embark on their own journeys. Season 8’s adversary, much to our surprise, turned out to be Cozy Glow. The Elements of Harmony were used by the Young Six to defeat Equestria’s newest danger.
