Cartoon Network sent out a press release Monday announcing all the shows that will make an appearance in 2013. Not on the list was the current cornerstones of the DC Nation block, "Young Justice" and "Green Lantern: The Animated Series".
The move by Cartoon Network is similar to the way it handled the cancellation of "Thundercats" last year by simply excluding the animated series from its list of upcoming shows. Despite the lack of a formal announcement, "Green Lantern" showrunner Giancarlo Volpe confirmed that the channel did inform Warner Bros. Animation beforehand. "This time we knew," Volpe said on Twitter. "They just didn't want us to announce it publicly until they did."
"Young Justice" is currently a little more than half way through its second season titled "Invasion". Meanwhile, "Green Lantern: The Animated Series" still has a handful of episodes left before its run ends. Both shows have received critical acclaim with one episode of "Young Justice" receiving an Emmy for animation. However, they've been victims of odd breaks including a mysterious one following their mid-season return.
The replacements for the two shows now appears to be the comedic "Teen Titans Go" and cgi-animated "Beware the Batman".
