With this change came a new series description: Continue reading

Shocking everyone, it looks like Rainmaker is going to make good on their fall 2013 announcement of a new ReBoot television series. Corus Entertainment has given the greenlight to 26 half-hour episodes of ReBoot: The Guardian Code, which all but ensures the show will actually exist.
