Okay, let’s kick this speculation in the can before rumor mongering and inflated expectations blow this all out of proportion and people get genuinely upset.
Teasing the idea? Maybe. Does this mean YJ is getting a 3rd season? No.
To be more specific, I think I can say with 99.9% certainty that YJ animated is not getting a new season. For one, Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti have moved on to new projects. Weisman in particular is joining a hugely successful franchise in Star Wars Rebels and is not likely to return to something that’s already been canned once. Weisman verified today on twitter that there are no renewal plans. [link]
Perhaps the most logical point to be made though is the announcement line itself. The announcement is coming from WAC — Warner Archive Collection. WAC does not produce new content, it releases existing content in collected editions.
Like Beware the Batman and Green Lantern: The Animated Series, I feel confident in suggesting the “Young” announcement from Warner Archive Collection will be Young Justice getting a collected Blu-Ray release.
