Representatives for Cartoon Network have confirmed that Beware The Batman has been removed from the network schedule, and is currently on hiatus. The CG-animated series, which aired Saturday and Sunday mornings at 10:00am (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network as part of the DC Nation programming block, will be replaced with additional airings of the comedy-adventure series Teen Titans Go!. Fans took notice of the change when the show was removed from the official Cartoon Network schedule page earlier this week. A new episode of the series, “Attraction” – spotlighting Katana and Magpie – was originally slated to air this coming Saturday, October 26th, 2013 at 10:00am (ET/PT). It has since been replaced with Teen Titans Go! repeats.
“Currently Beware the Batman is no longer on our air,” said a representative for Cartoon network, adding viewers should stay tuned for additional information. “Fans can still enjoy Teen Titans Go! and new exclusive shorts on Saturday mornings.”
No reasons for Beware The Batman‘s removal from the schedule were provided.
However, sources have confirmed for The World’s Finest that Beware The Batman is set to return to Cartoon Network come January 2014. The remaining fifteen episodes are slated to be aired within the first half of 2014, though schedule details are subject to last-minute change. Beware The Batman also currently remains in active production. Anthony Ruivivar, the voice of Batman on Beware The Batman, confirmed the January 2014 return date on the social media outlet Twitter.
Beware The Batman debuted July 2013 on Cartoon Network, netting average but consistent ratings for the animation-themed channel. Beware the Batman incorporates Batman’s core characters with a rogue gallery of new villains not previously seen in animated form. Along with backup from ex-secret agent Alfred and lethal swordstress Katana, the Dark Knight faces the twisted machinations of Gotham City’s criminal underworld. Eleven episodes of the series have aired thus far.
