Ratings for the series have been consistent since its Toonami debut. “Fall” and “Attraction” officially debuted on home video earlier this year.

Adult Swim describes the series as follows, as seen below.

BEWARE THE BATMAN
Saturdays at 3:00 a.m. (ET, PT)

A cool, new take on the classic Dark Knight franchise, 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 led by the likes of Anarky, Professor Pyg, Mister Toad and Magpie. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, this action-packed detective thriller deftly redefines what we have come to know as a “Batman show.” Featuring cutting-edge CGI visuals to match the intricate twists and turns of the narrative, Batman steps out of the shadows and into the spotlight for an entirely new generation of fans.

The CG-animated series originally aired on Cartoon Network as part of the now-defunct DC Nation programming block, but was removed from the schedule in October 2013 for unexplained reason. After a lengthy hiatus, the show joined the Toonami programming block on Adult Swim starting May 2014, details of which can be found here. Representatives for Adult Swim state the network is committed to airing all 26 episodes.
