The Rescue Bots are back as an iceberg brings unusual danger to the town of Griffin Rock. The Burns family along with the Rescue Bots are surprised when the S.S. Isolde has cargo wanted by Dr. Morocco. There is an ever greater mystery when the family realizes it is the same ship Great-Grandpa Zachary was a part of.
Griffin Rock is overtaken when snakes on their way to the zoo get away. Not realizing the danger, Chief Burns and the Lad Pioneers are hiking in the same area. With no way to return to Griffin Rock, they all must use leg power to get to the EMP Zone while the Rescue Bots do what they do best — rescue!
When serious weather threatens Griffin Rock, Doc Greene works on a way to protect the town. Making a dome to protect from the storm, the good doctor trusts someone he shouldn’t and the Rescue Bots are put into action.
A serious storm isn’t the only weather related problem in Griffin Rock as spring brings mudslides, masses of kelp and jellyfish. Bot Appreciation day that is suppose to celebrate everything the Rescue Bots have done is turned when Doc Greene creates action figures gone wrong.
When an earthquake happens on Wayward Island, Graham, Cody and Frankie are shocked to discover a ship belonging to Cybertron. Inside are Blurr and Salvage who are taken to see Optimus Prime. The Rescue Bots aren’t sure what the two bots will do and make sure someone is always watching.
