DC’s Young Justice Moved To Boomerang Network
The confusion over just what happened to DC Nation on Cartoon Network continues.
A representative for Cartoon Network has confirmed that – beginning Saturday, November 3rd, 2012 – Young Justice will be part of the Boomerang network line-up. The animated series was recently removed from the Cartoon Network schedule – along with Green Lantern: The Animated Series and the entire DC Nation programming block both series were a part of – for unexplained reasons earlier this month. The removal of DC Nation – and its accompanying programming – caused an uproar among creators working on the programs and fans. Two back-to-back episodes of Young Justice will air Saturday nights at 9:00pm (ET/PT) on Boomerang.
The episode “Misplaced” will air November 3rd, 2012 at 9:00pm (ET/PT), followed by “Coldhearted” at 9:30pm (ET/PT). The remainder of the November 2012 airing schedule is set for release later this week.
According to the Cartoon Network representative, adding Young Justice to the network line-up is being done to allow fans and viewers to get caught up with the series before the return of the DC Nation programming block come January 2013 on Cartoon Network. Young Justice is currently not being considered a permanent addition to the network schedule. There is currently no official confirmation if Green Lantern: The Animated Series will also join the Boomerang network line-up… creators of both shows have also still not been told yet just why Cartoon Network pulled the plug on DC Nation for the rest of the year.
DC’s New Batman Series Won’t Have Any Of His Supervillains
Producers of Beware the Batman, starting this fall on Cartoon Network, say they’re doing things differently with this one. No Joker, Penguin, Mr. Freeze, or the Riddler. Also, no Robin or Nightwing. Or Catwoman. “Oh, but we’ve got ugly CGI, Katana, and Professor Pyg!” So… yay?
Well, the Thundercats Reboot is Over
Straight out of the “Damn You, Cartoon Network, Damn You to Hell” folder, it appears there are no plans to renew Thundercats after this season ends today (June 16). Which is, really, a damn shame, as the reboot had some good things going for it.
To properly express how angry this makes us, consider that this awesome show gets canceled, while Cartoon Network decides to give THE ANNOYING $#!#ING ORANGE its own TV show.
