Well, we finally got our answer on when Beware the Batman is returning here in the US. Toonami just announced on their Twitter that the show will be replacing Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex starting May 10th at 3 am EST. Here's the tweet:
Photoset: Toonami is coming to Gotham!! Beware the Batman - May 10th at 3am! Full Line up below - 11:30 –... http://t.co/cENnkcVmMw— Toonami (@SwimToonami) April 16, 2014
Just a few minutes ago, Toonami head Jason DeMarco tweeted that all the remaining episodes of the series will air at the timeslot. Here's his tweet:
#Toonami fans- yes we are showing Beware The Batman, and yes we will be airing ALL of the episodes, including the ones that did not air!— LICH KING DEMARCO (@Clarknova1) April 16, 2014
This means that the remaining fifteen episodes that still haven't been aired on the network (though we have had two episodes through DVD and an additional three on New Zealand TV) will be shown. The earliest we'll be seeing the unaired episodes from the show (if they begin airing from in order from the start) is possibly mid to late July. No word yet if this truly marks the end of the show (which we still haven't gotten explicit word on). Still, the move does mark the end of the hour-long DC Nation that began on the network with Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series back in March 2012.
UPDATE: The episodes are now also available on Amazon Prime in the UK.
