UPDATE: Looks Like Young Justice And Green Lantern The Animated Series Are In Trouble Again
UPDATE: It seems mere minutes after posting the story wondering if the two shows had been cancelled Newsarama got confirmation from a source at WB that Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series have indeed been cancelled. The two shows will finish their current seasons this spring.
Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series fans have been on edge lately with rumors of the shows cancellations as well as the recent months long hiatus the shows underwent with no explanation given. The hiatus ended a few weeks ago and fans breathed a little easier. It looks like they are getting another reason to be concerned due to the release of Cartoon Network’s 2013-2014 returning series and new shows press release. The announcement trumpets the new DC Nation shows Teen Titans Go! and Beware the Batman, but YJ and GL:TAS are noticeably absent.
This seems to signal that the shows have indeed been cancelled. The hiatus seemed like it was actually the final nail in the cancellation coffin. The Young Justice comic book has also been cancelled by DC, so that seems to give us a further clue. It seems like the two fan-favorite toons will finish up their current season and join the long list of comic book shows that ended at the height of their popularity. What do you think? Are you surprised or were you expecting this news?
Partnering with powerhouse producers, Cartoon Network will introduce two new action-adventure half-hour series based on popular heroes from DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation, Teen Titans Go! and Beware The Batman; a new animated series from LEGO, Legends of Chima; a new animated musical-comedy series, Grojband, from FremantleMedia Ltd.; an all-new series iteration of the world’s most famous cat-and-mouse duo, The Tom and Jerry Show, produced by Warner Bros. Animation; a new season of the hit animated Total Drama “reality” series from CAKE Distribution, Total Drama All Stars; and also from LEGO, three quarterly installment specials of The Yoda Chronicles, a new CG-animated foray into the “Original Saga” world of Star Wars.
CARTOON NETWORK NEW SERIES:
Teen Titans Go!: Featuring the return of Robin, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and Cyborg in all-new, comedic adventures, Teen Titans Go! will premiere in April 2013. Character-driven comedy is the order of the day as this new take on the superhero series focuses on the funny business that happens between saving the world and living together as teenagers without adult supervision. The series stars the principal voice cast from the original Teen Titans, and is produced by Warner Bros. Animation.
Beware the Batman: A cool, new take on the classic Dark Knight franchise, Beware the Batman incorporates Batman’s core characters with a rogue gallery of new villains not previously seen in animated form. Along with backup from ex-secret agent Alfred and lethal swordstress Katana, the Dark Knight faces the twisted machinations of Gotham City’s criminal underworld led by the likes of Anarky, Professor Pyg, Mister Toad and Magpie. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, this action-packed detective thriller deftly redefines what we have come to know as a “Batman show.” Featuring cutting-edge CGI visuals, Beware the Batman, based on characters from DC Comics, is coming to Cartoon Network’s DC Nation block in Summer 2013.
The Yoda Chronicles: LEGO Star Wars returns in epic style with The Yoda Chronicles, a thrilling, funny and action-packed new LEGO Star Wars story told in three animated TV specials! Set in the “Prequel” Star Wars timeline, The Yoda Chronicles stars the one and only Yoda—the Jedi Master who has seen it all, done it all, and taught generations of Jedi Knights—in an all-new adventure. With the help of a fresh class of Padawans, Yoda leads the Jedi in a desperate fight to stop Darth Sidious and his minions from creating a new super-weapon that could crush the Republic and win the war for the forces of Evil.
