DC Nation Return Date Announced

Posted by k4tzm4n (39720 posts) - - Show Bio

It wasn't too long ago that Cartoon Network abruptly pulled Young Justice, Green Lantern and animated shorts from its Saturday morning schedule. Fans were shocked and only told the new episodes would be back in January. Well, we now have an exact date for you, so get ready to mark your calendars (if anyone still has one).

The official return date for DC Nation is January 5, 2013. Be sure to check out their website for a new episode of New Teen Titans, too.

Which show is your favorite?

Honestly, I'm thrilled. I'm behind on Young Justice (I know, I know... shame on me) but I think Green Lantern has really stepped its game up with the second season (plus, Ch'p!). Viners, how do you feel about DC Nation's return?

Really excited about Young Justice. I like the fast forwarded season.

I'm thrilled that it will be back but I'm worried whether the shows will actually continue past their current seasons...

It took them long enough. All I am saying is cartoon network has gone down hill for a while and these are really their own saving grace. To abruptly remove these for no legitimate reason was a real hard blow to them. In my eyes that is. I am glad it is back. A lot of fans are glad it is back I bet. Young Justice is really nicely done give me a little bit of a Justice League feel to it. Make me as a fan of that show really happy about that.

I just hope that Cartoon Network doesn't do something stupid like this again. I don't think they will be able to build up after that.

I am surprised that DC hasn't told them to never show there shows again after a stunt like this.

or am I the only one that thinks that?

What's Young Justice? I've already moved on :P

Green Lantern, the few new episodes were much more better than the first season.

Finally, Young Justice is better than Arrow... "in the fun way."

About time. I've been going through Young Justice withdrawals.

So stoked. Green Lantern: TAS is such a sick cartoon series on DC Nation. I've woken up every Saturday mornings watching these shows and to see it not on one saturday and being cancelled was a heartbreaker. With the last episode being "Steam Lantern", Hal having to save a different world from mass destruction with help from Steam Lantern and his assistant/lover, I think it was such a bad cancellation with the season just getting interesting and Red Lantern, Razor having turned to the "good side" and linked up with Green Lantern, Kilowog, Hal, and Aya the Interceptor. Oh yeah! and the Interceptor makes a first appearance in one of the first episodes to being one of the main "characters" in throughout the season (until cancellation). Can't wait for these series to be back on!

#14 Posted by Kyjeremiah (22 posts) - - Show Bio

This is just made my day! Young justice has been gone for too long. I'm in need of animated shows lol

#16 Posted by fodigg (6211 posts) - - Show Bio

Young Justice is the best of the bunch.

#17 Posted by longbowhunter (8848 posts) - - Show Bio

Now the trick is keeping em on. Looking forward to Young Justice. Best DC animated show since Batman: TAS.

Yay we'll get another 4 episodes before an 8 month hiatus. Maybe if we're really luck we'll get season 3 before 2016

YAY! Young Justice returns, as does Green Lantern. yes

#30 Posted by Mbecks14 (2114 posts) - - Show Bio

YES! So excited! Did we ever get an explanation for the abrupt hiatus?

#31 Posted by fables87 (1429 posts) - - Show Bio

I have to be honest, I didn't like Young Justice at first, but now I like it better with the additional characters in the show like Zatanna.

#32 Posted by Kervan21 (67 posts) - - Show Bio

Good to finally hear about this! I love Young Justice and want to see where the new season is going.

I hope this means that we'll see a complete season without any hiatus or interruption before summer. They've definitely had enough time to get enough episodes finished, and my biggest grievance with the show is that the seasons are pretty short and it goes on break A LOT, so I hope we get the rest of the season from start to finish.

I love YJ but the GL show is horrible

#34 Posted by YourNeighborhoodComicGeek (21358 posts) - - Show Bio

Young Justice is my favorite by far.

Love the Original Shorts though.

right on ! 
#36 Posted by Munsu (166 posts) - - Show Bio

Really glad YJ is coming back. It's been ridiculous how they have treated that show with its scheduling. I doubt there is going to be a 3rd season, so I am just going to enjoy these last handful of episodes until the series ends.

Well it's good it will be back early in November. My Saturday mornings have been boring beyond belief.

Very excited for Young Justice to return!

Green Lantern didn't tickle my fancy in the beginning for two reasons; the animation and action didn't look all that, and I felt as if it just spun off the movie (which SUCKED). It eventually grew on me, so I'm pretty glad to see it come back :)

As for Young Justice, ever since I saw Deathstroke and Jason Todd, my interests went even higher than they were before. I'm frickin' excited to know its coming back... and with more characters. I hope to see Red Hood and a little too much to ask for.... maybe even Azrael :D

Young Justice!!!!!!! Whoooooooooo!

#44 Posted by joshmightbe (26593 posts) - - Show Bio

@StMichalofWilson: And also we get crappy cgi Batman with nothing but C and D list villains that TAS wouldn't wipe their a$$ with.

#45 Posted by Blackmoonrose13 (276 posts) - - Show Bio


They never did for some reason this is what ticked off the fans the most they never gave a reason

#48 Posted by r3d_rob1n (543 posts) - - Show Bio

JANUARY 5th?!? I had already marked my calendar for the 12th. Oh Cartoon Network, you know just how to make me happy (after making me extremely angry 2 months ago).

#49 Posted by frankcmu (37 posts) - - Show Bio

Very exciting... love seeing the sidekicks get some spotlight... :D
