Justice Society: World War II follows the Justice Society of America, a group of heroes aiding the allies in World War 2, acquire an ally from the future, Barry Allen/The Flash (Matt Bomer) who sends them on an adventure that changes history.

For the uninitiated, the Justice Society of America were DC's premiere superhero team during the Golden Age of Comics, appearing in the pages of All-Star Comics from 1940 to 1951. After a decade-long hiatus at the start of the Silver Age, the team was reintroduced as being from an alternate dimension known as "Earth-2". They then proceeded to cross over with their Earth-1 counterparts, the Justice League of America, on an annual basis.
Justice Society: World War II is directed by Jeff Wamester, who is best known for directing Marvel's animated Guardians of the Galaxy TV series. The script was written by Meghan Fitzmartin and Jeremy Adams. Jim Krieg and Kimberly S. Moreau serve as producers, with Butch Lukic as supervising producer.
