Two years after the events of Broken Mirror, Treadshot and Grace live together happily in their home in California, and Earth is protected by Optimus Prime and his heroic Autobots. However the peace is short lived as Treadshot’s Pretender body begins dying, putting his future with Grace in jeopardy. To make matters worse, Megatron and his Decepticons return to Earth, hunting for an ancient relic of impossible power, and Treadshot is thrust back into his role as a soldier to defend his adopted home.

Fellow YouTuber and Transformers fan Xavier Gnam was brought onto the team in 2014 to assist Powell with writing duties, and is confirmed to write five episodes in Season 2. Max Linden will be working as sound mixer and editor as well as his voice roles. As of February 20th 2016, filming has completed for Season 1. A release date of 9th April 2016 was announced on 13th March.

On April 12th, a video was released on Crosshairs Productions featuring Ironfist (as voiced by Mason Brown), inviting fans to create an original SG Decepticon character to feature in a future episode of Ascension. Fans are able to submit their entries via the Crosshairs Productions Facebook page, and the relevant forums on tfw2005, Seibertron and The Allspark. The winner, an orange and black repaint of Generations Goldfire called Kickstart, was announced on June 4th.

YouTube musician and composer Jayhan is currently working on the soundtrack for Ascension. Drew Merkel is also providing some music for the series on guitar. Additional music from some Transformers games, from other composers and royalty free is used under fair use.
