Rumour – Netflix may want to revive Young Justice

4 min read


Netflix used to be a service where you could chill out for a weekend and spam an entire marathon of TV series while ignoring the crushing pressures of life. At least for a weekend. They’re still mostly that, and more lately. Netflix as a platform for movies and TV series, is also becoming home to some excellent original content, like that lovely Narcos show about that Columbian fellow who establishes an empire backed by the sales of baking flour. I think, I can’t read subtitles that quickly.

But as a platform that has the cash to bring back dead TV series? Now that’s something special. Netflix is already flexing some of that necromancy with a new series of Full House, dubbed Fuller House because apparently somebody demanded that Dave Coulier be given a paycheck for making goofy sounds again. But Netflix is apparently looking at bringing back a series that really deserves a resurrection: Young Justice.

If you never watched Young Justice, then you missed out on one of the greatest animated TV series of all time. Imagine a show, centered on the next generation of heroes in the DC universe that was equal parts exciting and serious. Sort of like the polar opposite of Teen Titans Go then. It had a decent run, lasting from 2010 until 2013 and stretching over two seasons for a grand total of 26 episodes.

And then it got cancelled, because of a failing toyline. Although did you ever see the action figures for Young Justice? They look they were designed in a sweatshop by underpaid children that had lost several limbs while in the process of putting McDonalds Happy Meals together.

Anyway, the latest rumour comes hot on the heels of writer/producer Greg Weisman calling for fans to start streaming some Young Justice episodes on Netflix:


A few weeks later, and Aqualad’s voice actor Khary Payton has also hit Twitter to share some good vibes:


It’s all up in the air at this point, but dammit, I want this to be true and greenlit. Like I said, Young Justice was equal parts action and character development. It’s the kind of show that pulled no punches, and didn’t treat its audience like a collective of potential action figure consumers. Also, it brought back Lobo for a wonderfully short fight between the biggest bastich around and a tag team of Wonder Girl and Batgirl. FRAGGIN’ AWESOME!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to binge the hell out of this series on several Netflix accounts.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    Netflix rocks like that !
    thats one of the reason why its so cool, just enjoying watching my shows on it. Have not heard of this one though, ,will check it out.

      I read that a few years ago Netflix and HVO both had similar turnovers, around $5billion. But profit? Netflix few hundred million, HBO $2billion. As a result of licencing content, so Netflix decided to start making content. And I think their content, even the stuff not for me, that I do not enjoy, is very well made, well casted and so forth. High quality stuff. Except for Adam Sandler movies, which I will never watch.

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        They entered into the deal with him because apparently his movies are some of the most popular on the service.

  • Yes please

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    I would not say no to this.

  • How did I miss this show?!!!

    Initiate Netflix Binge watching in 8 hours.

    • Commander Admiral Chief

      How is your XCOM btw?

      • Not working at this point in time. Waiting for a new patch.

        • miaau

          That sounds fun……..

          sorry to hear that. Just your hardware setup or all?

          • No idea. The forums have both AMD and Nvidia guys having issues.And running mods is a big no no at this point in time.

        • Commander Admiral Chief


          I’m dreading starting mine up…

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Not preordering a game I want wins again! Sometimes I’m not happy when I turn out to be right.

          • Game worked perfectly fine before the patch.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            So I’ve read, but I would’ve patched it, and then who knows what could’ve happened. Waiting a year works for me.

  • Hammersteyn

    100 times a better show than Arrow, Flash and Supergirl

    • Commander Admiral Chief

      YOU SHUT IT!

      • Commander Admiral Chief

        Agreed on Supergirl though

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Meh. She’s the smartest out of all of them. Berry & Olie have way too many DERP moments.

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            Berry is quite the derp

      • Hammersteyn

      Arrow the TV series or the comic Arrow? Very different stories.

      Arrow was (only seen season 1 and 2) extremely well made and put together, with great attention to detail. Wife and I watched Arrow and Person of Interest at same time, saw similar styles in both. Both high quality, both got attention to detail.

      By the way Person of Interest is a great show, little boy in me says so.

      • Hammersteyn

        The live series. I just feel they can do more with the cartoons as is evident with the DC cartoon movies

        • Commander Admiral Chief

          Why is your Skype off?

          Need to send something really lulzworthy

          • Hammersteyn

            Because Win10 keeps chowing my disk space and it crashes

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            Another reason for me to avoid it then

          • Hammersteyn

            Still bust setting it up, but I get distracted for some reason

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        I looooooooove Person of Interest.

        When it comes to Arrow, well, you’ve seen the best two seasons, 3 & the now-airing 4 aren’t as good.

        • I’ve though season 4 has been really good up to this point. Like far better than season 3. Darhk is the best villan since Slade and they’ve (thankfully) toned down the Romance. Only problem is Dig’s helmet

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Yeah, 3 is definitely the worst of them. Think 4 started out strong, but has gotten weaker as it’s gone along – it seems to be dragging its plot out. Dahrk is very cool, but you only see him for a few minutes every other episode.

    • I would say they’re quite equal

      • Hammersteyn

        That may be, but I always feel like they always do more with cartoons, bigger battles and more heroes for instance

        • Well that’s a given. With animation you can have the same super powers but it’ll cost less and usually look better

  • miaau

    Sigh. I do not like “Young” shows, like this. Seems to be a bit silly, the premise. I have never liked them. It feels like a direct attempt to hit a children’s market with more identifiable characters than adults. And that I do not like either.

    Cynical, for one so young

  • Lardus-For the Chimichangas!

    Hmmm, where can I get a full list of the shows available on Netflix SA? My Uncapped LTE I applied for on 1 December 2015 is finally here!

    • Commander Admiral Chief
      • Lardus-For the Chimichangas!

        Lol, Google just gave me a list of “50 best shows on Netflix” and stuff like that. I actually want to look at their full catalogue and search through it to see if it has something of interest to me. You know, like “Red Shoe Diaries” etc 😛

  • BloodRedRose72

    $&&$&$SPOILER FOR THE END OF SEASON 2 OF YJ#!*#!&@*#&[email protected]# If they revive it they SO have to bring back Wally West!!!! As it goes in the DC universe if there is no BODY then he’s not dead.
