As expected from the discovery of an animated Justice League poster a month ago, Cartoon Network has confirmed that a new Justice League series is in development.
“We will be premiering a new Justice League series, but not likely until next Fall,” Cartoon Network Canada said in response to a question from World’s Finest on their Facebook page. As The Nerdist previously reported, the series is rumored to be titled Justice League: Action.
The last Justice League animated series (Justice League Unlimited) concluded its run in 2006, but with the upcoming Blu-Ray release of the complete series, next year’s Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the planned Justice League films, Cartoon Network is clearly looking to capitalize on a resurgence in the team’s popularity. Regardless of their motivation, however, I’m sure the news comes as a relief to fans disappointed by the cancellations of Young Justice, Green Lantern: The Animated Series, and Beware the Batman.
No word yet on the creative team behind the project, but it’s unlikely Justice League creator and producer Bruce Timm will have a hand in the series due to his commitment to Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles.
