Whoever the DC fan was that got their hands on a genie bottle and used one of their wishes on a third season of Young Justice, we are forever in your debt. This is almost unbelievable, but Warner Bros. Animation just confirmed this evening that Young Justice is coming back, three entire years since the cult favorite superhero cartoon ended production.
The original run spanned 2011 to 2013 and was the centerpiece of Cartoon Network’s short-lived DC Nation block. The series was shut down when WB ended its entire action cartoon division, choosing instead to focus entirely on comedy. Slowly that decision is being reversed with the upcoming series Justice League Action, the return of Ben 10 and now this. We can confirm that original producers Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti are returning to oversee the new season.
If you haven’t seen this show yet, take care of that as soon as possible, but you might want to avoid these spoilers first: the second season ended with the death of Wally West and a cruel stinger that suggested an oncoming confrontation with Darkseid. This is a confrontation we’ll now get to see!
No other details about the new season are known. For now all we have is this poster. IT’S BEAUTIFUL……
