Producer Giancarlo Volpe On The Return Of “Green Lantern: The Animated Series”

After a long summer hiatus, Green Lantern: The Animated Series is back on Cartoon Network with thirteen new episodes slated to air during the 2012-2013 television season. The series follows the adventures of Green Lantern Hal Jordan and his band of heroes fighting to save the universe from intergalactic threats. Debuting September 29th, 2012 at 10:00am (ET/PT) as part of the DC Nation Saturday morning programming block on Cartoon Network, series producer Giancarlo Volpe promises the show will venture into new territory while also expanding on the show’s established mythology. Continue below for more from Volpe.

The World’s Finest: What can fans expect when they tune into the new season of Green Lantern: The Animated Series this weekend? How are things kicked off?

Giancarlo Volpe: Hmm, what can I divulge that won’t spoil the episode? I guess I can say the premiere starts moments after the mid-season finale. Hal is returning to Earth for the first time since he stood up Carol many months ago. It should feel very much like the next installment of an ongoing story arc. At the same time, it’s a good place for new viewers to join in if they haven’t seen the first season yet.

The episode also takes place predominantly on Earth, which I know a lot of fans have been asking about since we started.

WF: Is it safe to say this episode will lay the groundwork for what’s to come in the coming weekend? And will we see the return of characters and plots from the first thirteen episodes?

GV: Definitely. This week’s episode and the following one play like a two part set-up, not unlike season one. There’s a Manhunter bunker discovered on Earth, which will prove to be only the first of countless Manhunter outbreaks through out the galaxy. Where the Red Lantern Corps were threatening to invade from a far away region, the Manhunters have sleeper cells all over. This time, the threat starts from within, right under everyone’s noses.

You’re definitely going to see a lot more of the main four – Hal, Kilowog, Razer, and Aya – not to mention fan favorite Saint Walker. We also made it a point to expand the ranks of the Green Lantern Corps while also introducing new characters to (hopefully) fall in love with.

WF: Can you tease us with what we can expect for the next thirteen new episodes?

GV: The next 13 definitely have more of the same feel as the first batch. So if you liked the tone of season one you should love season 1.5 (or two, or whatever it’s called). I think the stakes are even higher this time around however, so get ready for some crazy emotional roller coaster rides (double entendre intended). Hopefully all the dramatic tension will make everyone root extra hard for the good guys to save the day in the end.

WF: Lastly – Guy Gardner – great Green Lantern…or GREATEST Green Lantern?

GV: Ha, I don’t know about that one. Let’s put it this way – if I had both Hal and Guy’s number on speed dial, I’d call Hal every time there was an emergency. I bet he’d be a blast to grab drinks with. But if I was casting for a smutty reality show, I’d go Guy all the way.
