'Young Justice' Somehow Trends on Twitter Despite Cancellation Two Years Ago!

The show, which was canceled in 2013, was somehow trending on Twitter Wednesday night and onto early Thursday morning.



Well, we haven't had one of these in awhile.

It's been two years since the animated series Young Justice was been canceled (due to a craptacular toy-line from Mattel that unsurprisingly bombed and the fact that girls watched it more than boys, spooking Cartoon Network's innate fear of cooties). And apparently, fan-rage is STILL at a boiling point over the issue (to be fair, it isn't surprising at all to this reporter, given last year the Most Maddening Moment of the Year was this very thing).

Of course fans of the show in the past have tried numerous ways to bring the program back, from crowd-funding to burying it in an Indian Burial ground and even a brief hope Warner Bros. Archive might bring it back (instead, it was just them releasing the series on Blu-Ray). 

This past Wednesday night, and early Thursday morning is just the latest attempt from fans of this show to make Warner Bros. and Cartoon Network (both of whom have said in the past that the show is canceled and no point renewing it) try and see "the light".

The hashtag #RenewYoungJustice sprang up on Twitter with support from co-creator Greg Weisman (he gave the addresses for fans to mail Cartoon Network Studios) lit up the Trending feature on Twitter.

 

 

At the moment (2:36 am CT), it's still trending with over 36,000 tweets. Whether this will work is highly doubtful as all Cartoon Network executives have reportedly padlocked the mailboxes and stuck their fingers their ears screaming: "We're not listening! LA LA LA LA LA!"
