It looks as though all those months of binge-watching on #Netflix have finally paid off as Young Justice has officially been renewed for a third season!
Warner Bros. Animation has announced that everyone's favorite team of sidekicks will return and that production has begun on Season 3. While they were tight-lipped on an official release date or trailer announcement, WB stated that there will be
“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.”
Just think, we'll get to hear this once again soon:
While not revealing a network partner we can guess that Netflix will produce the third season as series writer Peter David had previously been rumored to have met up with the streaming giants about a possible Season 3.
Warner Bros. Animation have also released a new website for the series, which shows off the reveal poster for the new season.
Sam Register, President of Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series praised the determination of the fanbase in a statement:
"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.”
Original #YoungJustice producers Brandon Vietti and Greg Weisman will both return to the series for the new episodes, which I'm sure will make fans even more excited than before to see the continuing adventures of our favorite young #DC characters...and it looks like Weisman is already up to the challenge of teasing us with what's to come:
Fans were outraged when the real reason behind the cancellation of Young Justice was revealed: The series attracted a female fanbase at a time that the company wanted to skew younger and for boys — in order to sell merchandise. Ever since then, fans have been clamoring for a third season, whether by petitioning or binge-watching it on Netflix to show WB that there was plenty of demand for a third season.
Regardless of what actually did the trick, our dreams are finally becoming reality. #YoungJusticeSeason3 is officially happening - time to get not just whelmed, but overwhelmed!
