Mark your calendars:
First day of season 2: September 17th
New timeslot: Saturday at 9AM EST
I think the time slot change was partly because of the slightly older-than-intended demographics (the 7-12 year old girls in addition to the 21-35 year old bronies), and partly because it's PRIME TIME for the "Saturday Morning Cartoon" block.
We have been promised new villains and the return of Luna. I think Luna is probably the most popular character outside of the main cast, so they responded to pressure in bringing her back.
