Millions of fans wept in unison at the cancellation of Cartoon Network’s Young Justice series. After gaining a cult following alongside Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Beware The Batman, the series was unexpectedly cancelled. But fan enthusiasm and protest has helped the show find a new home. On Adult Swim’s Toonami block. Weekly re-runs of the series will lead into the new third season of Young Justice. But the big question on everyone’s lip is if Greg Weisman will be returning as showrunner and executive producer of the series?
Unfortunately he will not be returning to the series, but WB quickly announced her replacement. Friend of the FanBros Show, and showrunner for Green Lantern: The Animated Series, Giancarlo Volpe has been brought on to bring the beloved team back to our television screen. Volpe spoke to FanBros.com about the recent announcement.
I didn’t believe it at first when I got the call. It wasn’t until they had a gun to my head and a contract in front of me did I even give it some consideration.
The biggest surpise is that the show now has a new home on Adult Swim, Volpe also spoke on that change.
I told them I’d do it if I could actually kill characters. The superhero game burned me once but now it’s time to burn it back. I’m looking at you Batman.
