My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, often abbreviated to FIM is the third My Little Pony television series and by far the longest running one, with nine televised seasons and 222 episodes. Friendship is Magic draws heavily from previous shows, My Little Pony and Tales to create an interesting atmosphere and universe. Like My Little Pony, it is a fantasy-adventure show, taking place in a whimsical kingdom known as Equestria, and like Tales, it has a strong emphasis on slice-of-life stories. The show follows the life and adventures of Twilight Sparkle and her closest friends, the Mane Six, Spike, and the Royal Family of Equestria.

History[edit]

Friendship is Magic is often accredited to showrunner Lauren Faust, who previously wrote My Little Pony Adventures, the 'bible' the series was based off of. The show aired in 2010 to surprisingly acclaim for teenage-to-adult males due to its 'grimdark' nature and focus on characters and adventures. In 2012, the show received a comic book series, which has outlated the series itself, and in 2014, the series received another spin-off in the form of Equestria Girls. After 9 seasons, the show ended in 2019, but gained another spin-off show, My Little Pony: Pony Life.
