Green Lantern: The Animated Series & Young Justice Cancelled

The two animated programs that currently head DC Nation appear to not have been renewed for another season. *UPDATE* Official Confirmation of both show's cancellation confirmed.



Source: Cartoon Network 2013-2014 Upfronts Press Release Lists New and Returning Network Shows

With the good, comes the bad. Today Cartoon Network revealed their 2013-2014 schedule and notably absent were Green Lantern: the Animated Series and Young Justice. Thus Cartoon Network bestowed them the same fate they gave Thundercats and Symbionic Titan. No mention at all, they're simply not renewed and thus canceled.

Alas this writing was on the wall for some time for Young Justice. First  a voice actor talked about how production on the show had completely stopped once the second season was finished. Then the Young Justice tie-in comic was cancelled, with the final issue scheduled to be released next month.  Finally, Mattel canceled the toy line early last year along with axing their content in the later half.

The sadder news is that Green Lantern: Animated Series was only given a single twenty-six episode season.  With it's remarkable animation and intelligent writing, it's a shame the series didn't receive much fanfare which I guess is what doomed the series (ala Symbionic Titan). All that's left now is for fans to just simply wonder why and cue the petitions and outcry to these cancellations.

 

*UPDATE*

 

Now no longer speculation, Green Lantern: the Animated Series producer/co-creator Giancarlo Volpe confirms the worst via his Twitter:

 

This time we knew. They just didn't want us to announce it publicly until they did.

 

Neither Young Justice creators Brandon Vietti or Greg Weisman have yet to also confirm the news. Though it is only a matter of time before they do.

I just never got into Young Justice, so I won't miss it much.

But Green Lantern was excellent. I hope they finish the season and resolve the Anti-Monitor/Manhunter storyline.

Fucking cunt! :smt013

Why am I surprised? Everything DC does nowadays makes no sense so why should this?

Just surprised that Marvel and DC have no idea on what to do with their animated properties anymore.

My kid will be devastated. :smt011

I think this has to do with CN more than DC though GOSD. They just want a single hour of DC animated stuff. Nothing more, nothing less.

But I want to blame DC!

I think DC could make it happen though.

What will be in that hour then?

Knew it didn't bode well with the GL comic being changed to bimonthly.

GL doesn't come near Titan's greatness.

That said, still sucks it's cancelled. They could have kept these two and alternate with Batman and Teen Titans instead of airing reruns. :smt102 I can't imagine Teen Titans airing for long.

That's too bad. I figured YJ would probably get canned since 50-ish episodes seems to be the most CN likes to do, but I was hoping for a second season of GL. It's been a very good show so far.

I assume it has to do with the costs of producing the shows.

Son of a bitch. I really loved Young Justice. Green Lantern was ok. I just never got into that animation.
