Weisman Leaves Young Justice
Threads Dangling, Hopes For Return
Although the fate of Cartoon Network’s Young Justice is pretty clear, producer Greg Weisman doesn’t appear to be closing the door to the possibility of more episodes, even after the show’s second, and presumably last, season comes to a close this spring.
Talking to The World’s Finest fan site about the final issue of his Young Justice comic series, which arrives Wednesday, Weisman said, “I’m not writing an epitaph here. But the nature of the business is that you never know if you’re going to be picked up for more episodes or issues. So whether it’s Captain Atom, Gargoyles, W.I.T.C.H., The Spectacular Spider-Man or Young Justice, I always try to end each season or run at a good place to stop, with what I like to call open-ended closure. So with the Young Justice book and show, Brandon [Vietti] and I tied up enough threads that the audience/reader can feel satisfied, but we’ve left some questions unanswered, some threads dangling intentionally, so that we have the chance to come back. And I would love to come back to this world, these characters. Believe me.”
That may come as some comfort to fans, who learned late last month that Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series won’t be returning in the fall to DC Nation. Instead the Cartoon Network programming block will debut Teen Titans Go! in April and Beware the Batman in the summer.
DC Nation airs Saturdays at 10 a.m. ET/PT on Cartoon Network.
