Premiering April 30th, Motorcity is an animated series set in a futuristic Detroit owned by evil billionaire Abraham Kane. Having banned personal freedoms including automobile transportation, Kane now faces one last obstacle: a group of hot-rod wielding rebels who call themselves The Burners. Led by Mike Chilton, The Burners rise to stop Kane from conquering Detroit’s last oasis of freedom—an underground refuge dubbed Motorcity.

The series, created by Chris Prynoski and produced by Robin Red Breast, Inc. and Disney Television Animation, is slated to premiere Monday, April 30, on Disney XD. The voice cast is Reid Scott, Nate Torrence, Kate Micucci, Kel Mitchell, Jess Harnell, Brian Doyle Murray, Jim Breuer and Mark Hamill.
I'm hoping there are a few of you who watch it. The series is definitely one of Disney's best animated series on TV right now. (I hate to say this, but it is better than Tron: Uprising) I know I'm obsessed with it. I didn't think I'd like it, but after the first episode I was hooked.

As said before, this is definitely one of the best shows on Disney XD (along with Tron: Uprising =P).
And The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Oh, man that show is so freakin' amazing.

Back OT:

I saw the first few episodes. It was definitely different from the Disney norm but it was kind of interesting. I haven't seen it on though for a while. When does it come on exactly?​

Motorcity

I JUST got into this show today, and I find out that today's episode was the season finale (first episode of this show that I watched. Yeah, I know I'm going backwards. Showing new episodes 12:30am definitely did not help make this show noticeable.) I also find out that there will be no season 2 D:

Since I've only recently started watching it, I don't really know how to summarize it, so here's the wiki version!:

The series is set in a fictional, futuristic Detroit, called Detroit Deluxe, which is an elevated metropolis built over the old Detroit. It is owned by evil billionaire Abraham Kane. Ruling the citizens under strict laws, and banning personal freedoms including automobile transportation, Kane now faces one last obstacle: a group of hot-rod wielding rebels who call themselves the Burners. Led by Mike Chilton, the Burners rise to stop Kane from conquering Detroit’s last oasis of freedom—an underground refuge dubbed Motorcity.

I can't believe I didn't watch this show earlier! Storyline looks interesting, even though, like I said, I started from apparently the last episode. I also like the fluid motion of everything: the cars, the fights, etc. The art kind of threw me off at first which is why I didn't watch the show in the first place, very much like how Tron did to me, but I grew to like both.

Wiki says that there will be no season 2, but is there by a slight chance that it may return? The ending to the finale seemed like they could still kick off to a new season, but perhaps I'm just being too hopeful.

P.S. Sorry if there is a thread on this already. I know I always make the mistake of making a new thread after checking the forums if there is a similar topic and then looking back and seeing that there was another similar thread.

There is already a thread

Also make sure to watch the show in production order! Not air order! Production order is on wikipedia

Anyways, I'm glad you liked it! The show is fantastic and too short. It's...not coming back. Disney cancelled it, it's dead. Titmouse Inc. has licked its wounds and is working on their second season for China, IL instead. They are also busy with Black Dynamite I think.

Thanks Master Spockanort^_^ I knew it! I'm always re-creating an already-made threadXD I only looked up to page 8 to see if there was a thread on Motorcity, so that's probably why I didn't see it: my laziness.

I shall watch all the episodes in order! Starting tonight! Hope I don't stay up too late watching itO_O

Re: Motorcity

Already finished all the episodes...me getting sick gave me an excuse to sit in the house all day and watch every Motorcity episode.

I started looking through the Motorcity comments on iTunes to see how many people supported it. Nearly perfect scores and reviews (whoever gave it a 1 star, shame on you!). Do they really have to cancel this show? So saaaaaaad. On a random note, saw a comment made by a "Spockanort." Is that you Master?

Re: Motorcity

Yes, that was me ;A; I love this show and this was Chris Prynoski's six-year brain child, then Disney just squashed it. So after the final episode aired I bought it and then decided to leave a comment because Disney just doesn't know how good of a show they had.

Apparently before Disney picked it up, the concept of the show was extremely dark and closer to Titmouse's usual work (drugs, alcohol, sex...the works) but they were given the chance to pitch it to Disney so they lightened it up. Even though it wasn't what they originally planned the show to be, it was still fantastic and the studio had a blast making it.

The fandom online is probably the best I have ever seen. Everybody is so nice, courteous and creative. On Tumblr they even made a separate tag for porn so if children decide to look stuff up on Motorcity, they won't see it ;A; And there were never fights...maybe one over color bleaching but that ended pretty fast and it isn't often you get a ton of the animators posting their work for everybody to see and admire and even run an official fan blog to answer questions about the show or have some of the team watch the livestreams of the episodes with the fans to see our reactions and...

*just really sad over this show being cancelled*

Speaking of Motorcity, there are rumors that Titmouse and Valve are working on something (a game?) Chris P. usually uses these hashtags together on Twitter "#Valve #BringBackMegasXLR #BringBackMotorcity" so expect something interesting in the future.

Re: Motorcity

Hmm, maybe I should leave a comment as well! I have come to love this show...in less than a day might I add. A truly marvelous show. I, too, will be forever sad that Disney decided to cancel it. (The face Texas is making in your avatar is exactly how I feel at the moment)

I do like dark stories, but this show, despite being lightened up, was still appealing to an "adult" like me. If only I noticed this show sooner, maybe 1 more viewer might have helped the viewers rating.

From what I'm hearing about the fandom, sounds like this show targeted a great audience. I feel like a lot of shows nowadays are just for stupid-fun entertainment (and some actually work, but not all of them). I want more in-depth stories like Motorcity (and Tron: Uprising).

First time hearing about the rumors, but sounds exciting! Man, if Motorcity ever came back, I would buy all the episodes! Better late than never in supporting something, right? And Megas XLR!? Haven't heard that name in a while! I don't remember much since it's been years, but what I do remember is that I did like watching it!

Re: Motorcity

Now that the show is over, I'll go watch it. I've been meaning to for a while because of how cool the animation is.

Go go go! I know you'll love it :D Surprisingly, the artwork, at first, didn't draw me in, but then I saw someone's sig here on KHI forums of Mike (the main protagonist) fighting some goons and the animation just looked terrific. I didn't know it was this show though, so I missed out on some good stuff when it was airing.

Pretty sure that sig belonged to Master Spockanort~ She's the reason I've been so intrigued by the show! :3

I just glanced at the posts in here because I don't really want to spoil myself but, despite the fact it was cancelled, did season 1 at least have an alright ending?

Haha, well then. I also have Master Spockanort to thank for getting me into Motorcity^_^

Season 1 ending wasn't alright. It was SPECTACULAR! It did not disappoint me whatsoever. And it left a lot of unresolved issues for a potential season 2 if Disney magically revives it or hands ownership to the creators. Although the season 1 finale did well enough of an ending to make me somewhat content if Motorcity were to discontinue for life.

Awesome! You've put my fears to rest and given me a bit more motivation to start this asap.
