Coming as a surprise to nobody considering how Cartoon Network has treated the two properties over the course of their run, Young Justice: Invasion and Green Lantern: The Animated Series will both end with the current season when they complete. Young Justice is in its second season while Green Lantern is in its first. While Warner Bros. Animation has confirmed the cancellation, Cartoon Network only indicates that new episodes will continue to air, essentially through the conclusion, and in their current Upfront presentation for the year, the shows were noticeable in their exclusion in being listed at all as a continuing show.

Cartoon Network will be following up the two series with two new works, with Beware the Batman and Teen Titans Go!.

Teen Titans Go!: Featuring the return of Robin, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and Cyborg in all-new, comedic adventures, Teen Titans Go! will premiere in April 2013. Character-driven comedy is the order of the day as this new take on the superhero series focuses on the funny business that happens between saving the world and living together as teenagers without adult supervision. The series stars the principal voice cast from the original Teen Titans, and is produced by Warner Bros. Animation.

Beware the Batman: A cool, new take on the classic Dark Knight franchise, Beware the Batman incorporates Batman’s core characters with a rogue gallery of new villains not previously seen in animated form. Along with backup from ex-secret agent Alfred and lethal swordstress Katana, the Dark Knight faces the twisted machinations of Gotham City’s criminal underworld led by the likes of Anarky, Professor Pyg, Mister Toad and Magpie. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, this action-packed detective thriller deftly redefines what we have come to know as a “Batman show.” Featuring cutting-edge CGI visuals, Beware the Batman, based on characters from DC Comics, is coming to Cartoon Network’s DC Nation block in Summer 2013.
