Seriously? What the hell? Cartoon network is bringing in stupid shows like "Incredible Crew" and junk like that, but these two shows, these two highlights of my week (besides Arrow) they're taking off? I was just starting to like Cartoon network again. Guess not. You just sent me back to adult television and late night talk shows CN. Thanks a lot.

... Truthfully as much as I would like to be upset by this "revelation", due to the fact that they are both great series (I will openly say that I am an avid viewer of both shows and greatly enjoy both of them), every one who watches these series has to admit (if you are honest with yourselves) that you knew this was long overdue. I understand that there will be many people who will disagree with me about this, but when you have two shows (however great they may be) that spend more of their airtime off the air than they do on it due to several prolonged hiatuses then it really comes as no surprise to me that this is occurring. While they are both excellent shows no doubt about it, Young justice season 1 took a year and a half "haitus" that is not withstanding the mid season and holiday breaks and season 2 has taken several months off as well (nowhere near as long as season 1, but still) . Green lantern, though fewer breaks (and shorter as well) than Young justice has still taken several prolonged hiatuses as well. As a viewer who has had to wait for these delays it was infuriating (stop me if I'm wrong), but thinking about this from a capitalist perspective (we're all trying to make a profit for whatever reason) if I can fit two seasons of 2 good shows (i.e. 4 seasons/ 2 seasons a show) into the time it takes to create 1 season for two... then it makes sense to cancel the "weak link.

Again I mean this as no disrespect to the young Justice/ Green Lantern loyalists (I'm also a member), but there were too many AWOL moments for these shows (from a practical standpoint) to persevere; regardless of how good they are.

P.S

Sorry so "Ranty"

I wouldn't say it was long overdue, more like, pretty obvious, overdue would be implying that they SHOULD be canceled.

Sigh...both of these shows are great. DC is messing up or else they have something in the works with another network.

That sucks! Always looked forward to both shows. Now I wonder if they'll even bother wrapping up the story lines.

The title is miss leading...

Am I missing something? Nothing in these three articles says Young Justice got canceled. It only means it didn't get renewed for another season.

"Beware the Batman" starts in the summer and "Teen Titans" in april.

CN dosent cancel anything its just not renewed.

......... so young justice and green lantern ( wasnt a big fan but i would of taken another season) are being cancelled by cartoon network and are being replaced with a SHIT done cgi batman series with really bad storys (if you saw the concept art and read the back storys / plot for it then you would agree) and the return of that f-ing god awful show that is going to be more "light hearted" than the original series teen titians go wow cartoon network really screwed the pooch on this one

Young Justice gets cancelled and Loebs insulting Ultimate spiderman lives!

Young Justice is amazing, but its not for kids, its like an adult swim show!

its a shame cartoon network kept delaying it, its schedule was terrible

@The Stegman: duly noted...pretty obvious

I'm going to cry. As a huge Wally West fan this was the only way to see him because of him getting removed from the comics. But now this? Why must the world be so cruel? We never even got to see him as The Flash...

#123 Posted by danhimself (21898 posts) - - Show Bio

The problem is that Cartoon Network did nothing to help them....they never advertise either of them and the gaps between episodes is ridiculous...instead they advertise the crap out of crappy shows like Regular Show and Adventure Time

I swear to God Nickelodeon is the only station that actually gives a sh*t about the fans. Disney cancelled both Spectacular Spider-Man and Avengers:EMH only to replace them with crap Now Cartoon Network does the same with two very good shows? it's complete B.S. Yet F*cking shows like Ben 10 can survive for almost nine years...

I think when fans over 10 years old enjoy a show, Disney/Cartoon Network think they're drifting away from their target audience too much.

Part of the reason they failed is because a lot of the hardcore fans on this site simply watched the episodes on youtube instead of watching them on cartoon network, on demand, or on iTunes.

Sad because both shows were top notch.

Aww man, you speak the truth. I don't have Cartoon Network, so I was one of those fans that resorted to watching on Youtube. Not to mention that when those shows went on hiatus, the episodes that got pulled still went up on iTunes. Therefore, most fans saw those episodes anyways. That meant that Young Justice and Green Lantern's big return from the disappointing hiatus resulted in lackluster ratings due to the episodes premiering having been available for months.

I just hope that the current story arc on Young Justice will be allowed to wrap up, and then there will be a heartfelt series finale full of closure and goodbyes. Hopefully Young Justice will actually have proper DVD/Blu-Ray releases for both seasons as well.

This is not surprising.CN treats their DC properties like shit.they have a gold mine at there disposal and they don't wanna use it right.Its like they resent them for some reason.In there eyes their only good DC is for them is batman.and selling as much bat merch as possible.Oh and on another note.thanks a lot DC for pulling generator rex and not saying anything.I mean seriously WTF!?

CANCELLING YOUNG JUSTICE AND GREEN LANTERN?!!!! I expected this kind of stupidity from Marvel/Disney after spectacular spiderman (due to legal problems) Wolverine and the x-men, Avengers: EMH and replaced them with rubbish shows like ultimate spiderman, HULK and the agents of s.m.a.s.h and avengers assemble. But Cartoon Network?!! they had toonami and adult swim?!! Now they wanna cancel young justice and green lantern?!! Greg Weisman has been screwed over by disney and now cartoon network. That guy is unlucky!!

>___< Can't say I'm surprised by this but really? Young Justice was a fantastic show written in high quality. I didn't watch it regularly but always enjoyed watching it whenever I saw it on. Didn't care for the GL cartoon though.

We got 7 eps to go, I love season 1 and I was so ready for season 2. I wanted to see at least StarFire, Cyborg, Raven, Rose,Kyle Rayner, and a whole lot other... Booster Gold!

When the showed up Red Arrow was the mole and wasn't even real, I was like DAM! Seriously The real Roy Haper was bad ass as Arsenal. They also have Tim Drake Robin! The best Robin ever! (I don't care about new 52 turn around Tim Darke.)

Plus out of a lot of the characters, Aqualad is my favorite one.

I can always trust Greg Weisman, one of my favorite's. Greg Weisma

There are words that can expose my anger at losing Young Justice but my computer refuses to them they are so profane. Young Justice was the best part of DC Nation it was the Justice League Unlimited of this time it gave exposure to heroes that rarely get the spotlight I was actually getting excited about Blue Beetle/Jamie Reyes again something that hasn't happen since that god f*cking awful Batman Brave and the Bold.

I'm all for the return of Teen Titans while it wasn't as mature as YJ I did like and appreciate the anime-esque style animation it brought. It was another show that I felt was cancelled before time and they could have done more with but not this stupid Teen Titans GO! seriously the few bits they showed as shorts weren't even that funny it should have remained as a short. So now instead of a show that can display every single DC character they want now they are going to focus on a stupid Teen titans comedy that will only show 5

Also if they are going to give us a new Batman make it good and not some CGI crap the character designs look stupid they are using some of the dumbest rogues in Bat's gallery (Professor Pygm seriously WTF?!") they fucked up Alfred(former secret agent WTF?) and no Robin instead we get Katana (WTF) What about that cool Japanese anime batman that showed as a short.
