Cartoon Network has revealed its 2013-2014 lineup of programming, and perhaps not surprising -- but disappointing all the same -- is the absence of Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series on the list of returning shows. Yes, it seems as though the net's DC Nation block of programming will be retooled later this year, dropping those two fan-fave shows in favor of the new Beware The Batman and Teen Titans GO! Such is the life of a superhero…


Ok, they didn't come right out and say they were cancelled, but it doesn't look good. This really, really blows.

I do not watch Green Lantern, but it seems like the end of this season is of Young Justice is a natural conclusion. I'm sure it's by design to make each season almost entirely self contained, but it feels like the people will have told the story they wanted to tell with these characters in another 13 episodes or so. (Edit: or even 7, if wikipedia is to be believed.) I'm sure they could come up with something if circumstances are different, but I doesn't seem like they need to do more.

(It is possible that will be a dumb looking paragraph at the end of the season, but they've been adept at moving things forward and keeping track of stray plot threads that it feels a safe bet.)

The pattern for DC Animation on Cartoon Network has been pretty steady

1) the show is probably only going to last around 52 episodes, unless they change the name to pitch it as a sequel or they get lucky

2) there are far more hits (and really good hits) than misses.

There are certain characters which are unlikely to be as big a part of another show any time soon - looking at you, Aqualad and Arrowette - because of their obscurity, but the odds are we'll get to meet some new people who'll be just as interesting.

This is obviously a rhetorical question, so I shall not answer...except that I just did I guess. And hey, whatever keeps Eugene Levy working is fine by me.
