Young Justice was a show that got canceled far too soon. Despite an incredible fan following, it was ultimately toy sales that doomed the show, and fans demanded more episodes. Finally, 5 years after the second season ended, we got confirmation of the return of the show, and at San Diego Comic Con, the team showed up to talk about the third season.
The new season will air on a special streaming service that DC Comics is creating, and the team noted the major differences between production there, and on Cartoon Network where the series originally aired:
“There’s more creative room here for more adult themes and more sophisticated and challenging stories for our characters. We have a little more room to write for that now.” Said Brandon Vietti.
As for how long the series will be, the plan is for 26 episodes, but some have not been written yet. 12 are done so far apparently. New characters will also be coming this sesaon, including Spoiler, a fan-favorite, and a new creation called Thirteen.
