Like a lot of people, I’m a fan of DC Nation. Young Justice more so than Green Lantern. So when Cartoon Network released a statement about the upcoming 2013-2014 season, both show were noticeable absent.
I had a moment of nerd rage. “How dare Cartoon Network cancel the best show they have!!!”
I took a moment and called Cartoon Network to find out what’s going on, and I was lucky to get a representative to explain what is happening:
First off, neither show is being taken off the air right now. They will both play out until the end of the season. Little comfort, but I can breathe a little easier.
Second, I was informed that it was announced that the DC Nation a while back that it was planing on running shows for 2 to 3 seasons and then starting up with new ones. (I’m still trying to find mention of this, but once I do, I’ll post.)
I’m far from thrilled plan. I’m a huge fan of Young Justice. It’s one of the few well animated, well written cartoons out there today. This is a show that isn’t dumbed down for kids, so it appeals to adults.
And finally the 2 new shows they are planing on replacing Green Lantern & Young Justice, Beware the Batman and Teen Titans Go! just look like crap. I wasn’t a fan of the first Teen Titans, this this Chibi version that they’ve been doing in shorts, just looks plain stupid.
I guess when Cartoon Network ends Young Justice, I’ll be done with DC Nation, until something better comes along.
