DC Nation to Return Jan. 5

Two months after Cartoon Network abruptly pulled new episodes of Young Justice: Invasion and Green Lantern: The Animated Series from its schedule, the cable channel has confirmed the Jan. 5 return of its DC Nation programming block. The announcement is brief, and doesn’t provide explanation of why the new season was halted just two weeks after its debut.

The episodes of Green Lantern and Young Justice are those originally scheduled to air Oct. 13:

Green Lantern: The Animated Series
Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013 at 10 a.m. (ET/PT) – “Steam Lantern”
After being blasted by the Anti-Monitor, Hal finds himself in a steampunk world!

Young Justice: Invasion
Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. (ET/ PT) – “Before the Dawn”
On a covert mission to rescue some of its own, The Team, Blue Beetle and Miss Martian uncover shocking secrets… and devastating truths!

DC Nation debuted on Cartoon Network in March, anchored by Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice, and features well-received animated shorts starring Batman, Teen Titans, Animal Man, Amethyst, Plastic Man and other DC Comics characters. Full-length series Beware the Batman and Teen Titans Go! will join the lineup next year.

    Good news, everyone!

    Great news! I hope Young Justice gets a third season. It’s better a better portrayal of the DC Universe than what I’m seeing among the New 52.

    Those are reruns, but I’m assuming thats just to get us up to speed because of the silly and unnessisary break.

  • Clparmer

    Actually, Hoofprintspb, they’re not reruns. The episodes were scheduled to air but were pulled for unknown reasons. They were uploaded to iTunes that day before it was realized they weren’t aired (which I assume is part of the agreement) and were pulled a few hours later in which, from what I read, it had the highest download numbers in any of the different categories.

    Are they sure they’re going to show the shows, or will they pull them for NO GODDAMN REASON FOR SHITS AND GIGGLES YET AGAIN !!!! Not angry.

    I was recently told by someone who would know that both YJ and GL have been cancelled and will not get new seasons once the current runs end.

    Should have returned two months ago when people wanted it.  The programing decision make no sense.  Even reasons I heard didn’t hold up about 20th anniversary marathon that never happen.  I think people at DC made this move more cartoon network.  They don’t want this series on tv anymore.  To good and to much better then Crappy 52 books and Teen Titans book out now.

    Bad news. :(

    With all due respect, that’s fucking retarded. Plus, DC doesn’t have any say in what gets on TV.

    they only did that because they were celebrating cn’s 20th ann., so now that thats over and done we can get back to dcn. also the other thing was they didnt have enough break shorts to continue, so it gave them a chance to make more of them.

  • john

    yj’s not getting a third season. theyve already said whatever episodes are yet to be aired will be the last ones, since productions already been shut down on them. also, the new batman series is scheduled for fall showing on cn’s dcn hr.

  • Mou101

    Hadn’t read that news. It really stinks. YJ is an excellent series.

    I’d hoped they were expanding the block, rather than replacing components.
