Beyblade Burst Surge lands on Disney XD in Feb as Hasbro extends Speedstorm toy line

Published on: 22nd January 2021

The fifth season of the hit anime series, Beyblade Burst Surge is landing on Disney XD next month, bringing with it a run of 26 episodes and an extended toy line from Hasbro that will tap directly into the core base of Beyblade fans.

The highly anticipated fifth season will debut with two new episodes starting at 8am ET/PT on Saturday, February 20th. Following the launch, new episodes will roll out Saturday mornings at 8:30am ET/PT with encore slots Sundays at 8:30am ET/PT and Weekdays at 3:00pm ET/PT.

Leading up to the premiere, Disney XD will air a Beyblade Burst Rise marathon beginning Friday, February 19 at 11:00pm ET/PT.

The new season will follow the adventures of a new cast of characters, along with some familiar faces fans loyal to the Beyblade Burst franchise will immediately recognize. A legend among legends, top Blader Valt Aoi hosts an exhibition match featuring a revolutionary class of Bey: “Lightning Beys”.

Inspired by the battle, two unknown brothers, Hyuga and Hikaru Hizashi, issue a challenge: armed with their own Lightning Beys Hyperion and Helios, this unlikely duo is going to topple Beyblade’s ruling elite.

Fans can also look forward to the full season of Beybalde Burst Rise being available on DisneyNOW throughout February.

Beyblade enthusiasts can already find the Season Five opening theme song, “We Got the Spin,” on the official Beyblade Burst YouTube Channel. This captivating, edgy track was written and performed by Konrad OldMoney and Seboria Peters, and is due for release on streaming platforms in early February.

Finally, long-time global master toy partner Hasbro will support the new season’s launch with the much-anticipated Beyblade Burst Speedstorm product line.

Fans will be able to launch into highspeed head-to-head battles with official Beyblade Burst Speedstorm tops that are designed to harness the power of the inescapable Power Vortex – an energy zone at the center of the Speedstorm Beystadium which has the ability to pull tops in and give them the ultimate speed boost.
