'Young Justice' and 'Green Lantern' Cancelled by Cartoon Network?

Say it ain't so!

Many of us saw this coming, but that doesn't make this any less heartbreaking! Cartoon Network's latest press release lists new and returning shows and unfortunately fan favorites Young Justice and Green Lantern aren't on it! First the unexplained delay, now this? I'll let that sink in and give you a moment or two to vent.

Despite being widely loved by comic fans, the two animated shows didn't appear on the list. Instead, Teen Titans Go! and Beware the Batman made the cut.

This is very disappointing news, especially after Green Lantern shocked us with such a powerful episode ("Loss"). Viners, this is where I usually ask you to sound off, but I think a moment of silence is more appropriate.

Shall I dare say that Young Justice was the greatest creation that Cartoon Network ever brought to TV? And now it's gone...

Edited by animehunter

All I can say is that they'd better not end them, especially Young Justice, on a cliffhanger with unanswered questions, I hate it when they do that. I say, if they want to end a show, they need to end it properly, with closure.

Still to cancel shows, especially Young Justice, that are showing their potential is just downright mean.

(I guess you can tell my favourite it Young Justice)

and if the info I found is right, we have 6 episodes (14-20) of Young Justice & 7 episode (20-26) of Green Lantern left

well that was the only reason i watched CN . couldnt another company buy the rights ? nickelodeon? hub??

Vortexx should buy the rights. That would be awesome.

I loved Young Justice & Green Lantern. Dumb move on Cartoon Network's part. Just like when Nicktoons cancelled Wolverine & The X-Men!

........well, thats it than.....i have officially no reason to watch CN. Mystery Incorporated is in yet another year-long hiatus and the 2 best parts of dc nation have been canceled.

Haven't watched Green Lantern, but I love Young Justice! Such a shame.

AHHHHHH!!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! Their are so many stories Young Justice still needs to tell............

Posted by JonesDeini was inevitable, guess they didn't sell enough toys or make enough kids meal tie-ins.

Young justice is easily the best comic book show ever made. Animated wise. If anything everybody not watch cn when they drop it. Show them how many viewers they lost

it's the same thing that happened with Wolverine and the X-Men and Avengers!! WHY ARE THEY DOING THIS!!

At least Avengers: EMH had a definite ending (and needed more Beast). I STILL suffer separation anxiety from Wolvie and the X-Men.

I am really pissed about Green Lantern, but I hated young justice, and I'm glad to see it go. To be fair though, it is certainly worlds better than that crappy teen titans cash grab that they are inflicting on us.

Young Justice and GL better not have cliffhanger endings...

Posted by colonyofcells

My guess is the kids with fatty brains will like Teen Titans Go a lot better than Young Justice.

Cartoon network is really digging their own graves

Posted by MaxSchreck

Wait ...does that mean they won`t even show the rest of the current season of young justice ? °_°

Posted by The Mighty Monarch

Everyone saying Cartoon Network is going to fold because of this needs a reality check. Cartoon Network still thrives off of Adventure Time and Regular Show, it's not going to die because of the loss of YJ and GL; but they're still idiots for doing so.

Posted by Mezmero

I got about 4 episodes into Young Justice before falling off on it. I can tell it's good but the teeny-bopper styling persisted too much to get me through any more episodes. Now that it's ending it seems like the perfect time to dive back in and see how good it really is. Have seen about half an episode of Green Lantern and was not feeling it.

Posted by mk111


No, they'll air it, they just won't order more episodes after that.

Posted by MAZAHS117

Wow...If this is true, I guess I suspected as much. I mean, Cartoon Network has an awful way of handiling the airing of YJ seasons. It'll be going strong and then all of a sudden stop. I'm hoping this isn't true

Posted by rav4

CN can rot in hell.

Couldn't the creators try to take the show to a different network for more seasons?

Posted by lvenger

Damn it YJ being cancelled. I blame the show going on hiatus for so blasted long. It was such a good show too.

grab your pitchforks and torches

Edited by TheCannon

They're really cancelling YJ for that Teen Titans Go crap? I admit, YJ did go downhill in season 2, but there's no reason to cancel it. And replacing it with that retarded Teen Titans go sh*t is just stupid. And While I haven't watched GL (I could never get past the horrible CGI), I'd much rather watch something about a guy like GL instead of ANOTHER Batman show (has anyone else noticed that each Batman cartoon is worse than it's preceeder? We went from TAS to The Batman to The Brave and the Bold. Beware will be sh*t). I think I'm done with Cartoon Network, no matter what they air.

I just died....T____T Don't care about the green lantern BUT Young justice was so good. Why? Why do all animations that are more mature get cancelled and completely ridiculous shows like family guy or south park stay around forever?

Just losing my patience for television cartoons, which is pretty sad since that's part of my schooling lol

Posted by spinningbirdcake

@Smart_Dork_Dude: Yeah I agree about pretty much everything you just said. Beware the Batman seems like something we should beware as a cartoon. And I've never really been all that into the Green Lantern universe. That cartoon actually got me reading the Geoff penned series and backtracking quite a bit. Such a shame. At least they haven't messed up the movies they've been putting out.

Now this is where i could slap the shit out of the ceo at cartoon network really the best shows got cancel.

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...

Posted by Mutie199

NOOO?? i liked the young justice and now they cancel it?? damn them!! i am screaming out loud enraged right now because of this

Posted by Oscars94

But....these shows are good..... :O

Edited by ThePRez

DC Nation must get a new channel ... maybe the hub?

Posted by Toastalchemist

It's a shame to see the Green Lantern show go. It was nice to have Kilowog as a main character for once. I hope we get an ending for Young Justice before it ends. I hope they have time to tie up all of the plot threads.

Thanks for nothing, Cartoon Network.


Posted by queenfrost_





it had so much potential. justice league unlimited kinda potential :'(

Posted by ThreadPool

At least they renewed 'Annoying Orange'.

-No one

@naustin07: god the character designs are incredible...* sure if CN picked up Gotham Crusaders it'll be cancelled and replaced with more level up .... damn u cartoon network

Posted by Rixec

Maybe it isn't as bad as we think. They're not on the list this time but let's remember that DC Nation is a one hour block. Perhaps CN is just letting Beware the Batman and Teen Titans Go! get some screen time and we'll see Green Lantern TAS and Young Justice when Batman and Titans have finished up.

Posted by LaserLambert

I didn't like either show, can't say I'm disappointed.

yeah If they could somehow remove all DC comics licensed characters, because CN still holds the deal to air the DC stuff, as evidenced by the new shows taking the place of these two.
