If you have been following Greg Weisman on social media for the last year, you know he has been pushing for a third season of Young Justice. Looks like the social media campaign has been super effective as Warner Bros. is giving us exactly what we want.
In Young Justice, the teenage Super Heroes of the DC Universe come of age in a world of super powers, Super-Villains and super secrets. Used strategically as the secret covert weapon of the Justice League, Nightwing, Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and a host of others strive to prove to their legendary mentors, as well as to themselves, that they have what it takes to be heroes.
“The affection that fans have had for Young Justice, and their rallying cry for more episodes, has always resonated with us,” said Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series, in a press release. “We are excited to bring the show back for this loyal fanbase and to provide an opportunity for new viewers to discover this excellent series.”
It’s nice that fan support can change a company’s perspective on shows like Young Justice, X-Files, and Community. The payoff will only come if people who say they want the show watch it.
Right now, Warner Bros. has not stated when season three will launch, but a Young Justice 3 website has launched to keep you up to date.
