For those of you that reading that headline, this is not some cruel April Fool’s prank, mainly because its not at all April, and its super duper, really, seriously, totally real, official.
Young Justice is officially being brought back and the much thought about third season of the highly beloved animated superhero series is going to become a reality. Proceed to freak out at your own accord.
Swiftly cancelled after two seasons, Young Justice will live once again. Three and a half years have gone by since the twisty and emotional cliffhanger ending of the series was broadcasted on Cartoon Network and left its fans in a frenzy of theories as to where the show might have gone and about who else from the DC Comics lore would pop up on the show.
Creators and producers of the show, Brandon Vietti and Greg Weisman are coming back on board for the return and have only offered a vague hint as to what to expect in season three saying, “new twists, turns and dangerous new threats for the team, but most importantly, the opportunity for fans to finally continue the adventures of some of their favorite Super Heroes.” Way to keep fans in suspense. More details on the third season will be come out at a later time.
Right now at the moment there is a piece of promotional art for the series and the website, yjs3.com where fans can sign up for email updates and the show.
Weisman himself was a big catalyst in helping to make this happen. Back in February of this year, he sent out a tweet about season two coming to Netflix’s streaming service and said that re-watching the full series on there and buying the Blu-Rays would help out the chances of a revival.
President of Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Sales, Sam Register said this of the return in a press release. “The affection that fans have had for ‘Young Justice,’ and their rallying cry for more episodes, has always resonated with us. We are excited to bring the show back for this loyal fanbase and to provide an opportunity for new viewers to discover this excellent series.”
Young Justice ran from 2011 to 2013 on Cartoon Network and was revered for its approach in the storytelling of teenage superheroes from the DC Universe and that helped garner it a lot of love both publicly and critically.
