After taking DC Nation off the schedule at the last minute effective this weekend, details available at The World’s Finest, Cartoon Network has announced new installments of the programming block will return starting January 2013. Social platforms erupted earlier today when both fans and creators behind programs on the DC Nation programming block – including Young Justice, Green Lantern: The Animated Series, and the DC Nation short-form content – found out about the last-minute schedule switch-out. Reaction has been negative across the board, with early reaction to this latest update also not going over well.
Cartoon Network released the following statement about the return of new DC Nation programming next year, as follows.
Fear not, DC NATION fans! Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice will return in January with new episodes, only on Cartoon Network!
The network is expected to air out the remaining new episodes of Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series before turning the block over to upcoming new shows Beware the Batman and Teen Titans Go!. The last minute change goes against details released earlier in the week by Warner Home Video in promotion of an upcoming Young Justice DVD home video release, details available at The World’s Finest, stating new episodes were to remain on the air until December 2012. Those new episodes are now delayed, as confirmed by the network, until January 2013.
The DC Nation programming block will be replaced with back-to-back episodes of DreamWorks’ Dragons: Riders of Berk for the remainder of October. Please note schedule details are subject to change without notice, so stay tuned for any further possible changes. Representatives for Cartoon Network has yet to release a statement or reason for the delay in new DC Nation content.
Stay tuned for continued updates here at The World’s Finest.
