It was just in March of 2014 that Young Justice finally hit Netflix, a year after the second season finale and subsequent hiatus. The series joined another pair of critically acclaimed DC Comics-based animated series in Justice League and Justice League Unlimited.
Unfortunately, you’ve got less than a month to watch those episodes as all three are set to leave the platform come August 1.
Viewers might notice the warning if they fire up an episode of any of those series — a dialogue box pops up on the screen informing viewers of the imminent removal.
All three series have two seasons each for fans to watch, at least for the time being. Justice League was a thematic successor to both Batman: The Animated Series and Superman: The Animated Series. It featured both aforementioned characters alongside Wonder Woman, Hawkgirl, Martian Manhunter, Green Lantern, and the Flash as they took on global threats.
It was later succeeded by Justice League Unlimited, in which the core members expanded the group to include various other superheroes in the DC Universe to tackle problems and villains suited for their skills. Zatanna, Supergirl, Etrigan the Demon, Green Arrow, Captain Atom, and many others appeared over the course of the series.
Young Justice took place in a different timeline, or “earth” in the DC Multiverse, and featured Batman establishing a covert-ops team consisting of various Justice League-members’ sidekicks. The Team originally included Robin (who became Nightwing in Season 2), Aqualad, Miss Martian, Artemis, Kid Flash, and Superboy.
Netflix helped play a role in Young Justice’s return for a third season as fans streamed the series enough that a renewal was of interest by Netflix. DC’s parent company Warner Bros. instead opted to take the series to their own digital content channel set to launch next year alongside a live-action take on Titans.
Maybe Warner Bros.’ new streaming platform has to do with the decision to take off these two popular shows — it’s a sound business decision, but it’s still sure to disappoint a lot of fans.
