Young Justice will return again! In addition to renewing Doom Patrol for a third season, Warner Bros. also announced a new season of Young Justice titled Young Justice: Phantoms. The announcement came via DC FanDome during a Young Justice panel hosted by GameSpot's Chris E. Hayner. The producers of the series say that work is already underway and revealed the logo for the new season, which you can see below. The panel did not reveal whether Young Justice: Phantoms will be a DC Universe exclusive, like the previous season of the series, titled Young Justice: Outsiders, or if it will make the jump to HBO max like Doom Patrol did.
The panel didn't reveal any concrete details about Young Justice: Phantom's plot. The show's voice cast did perform an original script that is set between the events of Outsiders and Phantoms. In the script, Superboy (Nolan North) and Miss Martian (Danica McKellar) leave the Team behind to embark on a journey all their own. Meanwhile, Artemis (Stephanie Lemelin) invites Arsenal to rejoin the group. Arsenal accepts.
Fans of Young Justice may remember that the team is now fractured. Beast Boy decided to break off from the group. Some of the Team's young members joined him in former a new group called the Outsiders.
Per the synopsis for the previous season, "The teenage Super Heroes of the DC Universe come of age in an animated world of super-powers, Super-Villains and super secrets in Young Justice: Outsiders, the highly anticipated new take on Warner Bros. Animation's popular Young Justice series. The team faces its greatest challenge yet as it takes on meta-human trafficking and the terrifying threat it creates for a society caught in the crossfire of a genetic arms race spanning the globe and the galaxy."
Young Justice became a cult sensation after two seasons on Cartoon Network. It was canceled unceremoniously and leaving many dangling plot threads unresolved. Year later, Warner Bros. picked the series up again and used it to draw viewers to its nascent DC Universe streaming platform.
