Ever since the show was announced for the chopping block, fans where curious to know what the creators of Young Justice felt on the matter. Well in an interview with World's Finest, YJ co-creator finally talks about his feelings of the show's uprupt end.
WF: The final issue of Young Justice hits in February, with the last episode of Young Justice’s current season in March. Is there an air of finality around these projects for you? If you never had to opportunity to work with these specific characters again, would you be happy with how you and [Young Justice producer] Brandon Vietti left things?
GW: I'm not writing an epitaph here. But the nature of the business is that you never know if you're going to be picked up for more episodes or issues. So whether it's Captain Atom, Gargoyles, W.I.T.C.H., The Spectacular Spider-Man or Young Justice, I always try to end each season or run at a good place to stop, with what I like to call open-ended closure. So with the Young Justice book and show, Brandon and I tied up enough threads that the audience/reader can feel satisfied, but we've left some questions unanswered, some threads dangling intentionally, so that we have the chance to come back. And I would love to come back to this world, these characters. Believe me.
So there you have it. Unfortunately DC and Cartoon Network have moved on and it appears neither will be using Weisman's talents on other projects or comics. The actual series' finale (unless Cartoon Network yanks the show AGAIN) will be in March. At the moment the Green Lantern: The Animated two part series finale will air on March 9. No word has been revealed if CN will do the same for YJ. If aired weekly it'll be on March 16 or 23. We'll keep you posted on when the series final episode(s) will air.
