Beloved superhero cartoon Young Justice is finally, miraculously getting a third season after the acclaimed show was canceled back in 2013.
Warner Bros. Animation announced that it was beginning production on Season 3 in a press release on Monday night. No specific release date or network was given for the revival.
Young Justice, which follow the exploits of former DC superhero sidekicks as they form their own team and battle evil alongside the top-tier heroes, was widely praised for its incredible storytelling and nuanced character development, as well as its crisp animation and thrilling action scenes.
The show aired for just two seasons from 2010 to 2013 before it was canceled, in large part due to low toy sales. Legions of fans have been calling for a classic superhero resurrection for the beloved cartoon, especially after all the episodes hit Netflix. However, series creator Greg Weisman told Inverse that a revival was unlikely.
Luckily, that turned out not to be the case.
“The affection that fans have had for Young Justice, and their rallying cry for more episodes, has always resonated with us,” Sam Register, the president of Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series, said in a release. “We are excited to bring the show back for this loyal fanbase and to provide an opportunity for new viewers to discover this excellent series.”
There aren’t any other details about Season 3 of Young Justice other than the fact that it’s going to exist, which, along with the poster, is enough for now.
