The Team circa season 2

well the writings been on the wall for a while. I don't know the specifics but the show has not been renewed for a third season. And if it had we would have heard it by now.

Maybe it was all the hiatuses or simply poor toy sales (Toy deals are the banes of a lot of cartoons), but regardless looks like this shows axed. So enjoy this season looks like its all we are going to get

Thoughts?

At this point I'm not sure if there is anything that can be done to save it. Maybe some massive fan outcry and petitions, but it would have to be a lot and I mean a lot to even hope of getting the networks attention in a meaningful way.

I think the poor toy sales has more impact then people realise. Still, I'm hoping there is still a chance for it to come back. 
 
I guess its possible it could go to another network, but I'm not sure what other cartoon stations WB owns, or if they would even allow it.  Maybe they could re brand it as a Justice League cartoon and keep the same universe going.

Maybe ratings and toy sales would improve if CN would stop pulling the damn show, its been on the air for three years now and we haven't finished season 2 yet

I don't know why shows make these toy deals. Yeah it helps cover expenses. But Static didn't have a toy deal and gave us 4 seasons, and brought in Wrestling type ratings. But your right end of the day this is a business and thats how the system goes

I KNEW THAT WOULD HAPPEN!! I JUST KNEW IT!!!

Though I don't really watch Young Justice that much, I really really love the Green Lantern cartoon. But I knew it would get cancelled very soon.

It was abvious from the many unexpected breaks in the airings which surprised even the creators of the show.

Oh man, I thought I was the only person who preferred GLTAS to Young Justice.
