Despite all of the chatter between fans and producers, we will admit that we were among those who thought Young Justice Season 3 would be an impossibility. The series was one of the best DC Comics adaptations in any form, but it seemed as though DC, Warner Bros., and others had moved on from these versions of the characters. “They don’t sell toys” was one of the recurring excuses for why we didn’t get more of the show, even though the Cartoon Network’s scheduling of the series helped no one to keep up with the series.
Well… guess what… it’s coming back!
Plot details are sparse, but according to ComicBook.com, Warner Bros. Animation has confirmed that production is starting on a third season of Young Justice, with a network or distributor to be announced later. The third season “promises 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.” Surely this is all happening as a result of the enthusiasm of the fan base as well as the creators who continued to engage that fandom, encouraging Netflix binges and the like.
“The affection that fans have had for Young Justice, and their rallying cry for more episodes, has always resonated with us,” Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series, said in a statement. “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.” Producers Brandon Vietti (Batman: Under the Red Hood, Superman: Doomsday) and Greg Weisman (Star Wars Rebels, Gargoyles) will both be returning to the series.
