Personally I think this is quite a surprise since it has been a very long time since the original series was on air. With the release of the new “Masters of the Universe Origins” toyline it was pretty much a no brainer that a series was being produced, however what is surprising is that the series will continue the events of the original series. Either way I am intrigued to see how this unfolds.
