When Young Justice saw the cancellation just two seasons earlier, fans and creators came together to bring the series back, even after years without a word. Two seasons were not enough for the story that unfolds in a world in constant change with more and more characters to discover and endless opportunities to watch. Now, until the fourth season, fans continue to gather to continue the series. If creator Greg Weisman has the last word, it will continue indefinitely.
There is no end to Weisman, who says he has no concrete plans for the series to end. Along with his vision of the show and life, Weisman offers a wise perspective that could be good news for Young Justice fans who never want the show to end.
While Weisman has already spoken about the case, he recently paid close attention to Twitter for a Young Justice shutdown that does not exist:
In a tweet asking how long the show would last, Weisman replied: “I keep saying it NEVER ends. There will never be a” real ending “for #YoungJustice. I never said he has three seasons planned and expect to plan more When finished.
In subsequent tweets that night, Weisman made it clear that parts of the whole story have an end. Episodes and seasons, for example, are written with the end in mind, but the series itself always remains open. Weisman intends that life itself has such rarely defined boundaries. Graduations, big moves, and even death always create opportunities where the story continues. When you watch Young Justice, it’s easy to see how the ambitious show can survive for years without ever ending.
In its way, Young Justice is about inheritance, and it’s not something that never really ends. Each season introduces new characters and builds new generations of heroes who take responsibility for their predecessors. The original team is also no longer teenagers. Still, they live a life with adults and mentors leading like their heroes in the beginning. Several characters have died never to return, but many other new characters take their place. It might have retained its essence if the show had been going on indefinitely, even though the emphasis had been quite different from the original cast.
There is no other superhero series capable of bringing such a wide range of characters in so many years, evolving emotionally and psychologically as the cast of Young Justice. Even DC Animated Universe, the ambitious multi-show project that previously linked shows like Superman: The Animated Series and Justice League Unlimited together through more than a decade of the natural world, has created a more miniature world of comics that all refer to. Is, the isolation is, and the characters do not change dramatically over time. Young Justice is different, and Weisman’s drive helps to inspire him.
The world of Young Justice is genuinely organic and growing. From the start, he has been careful to inform the public about his schedule. Even without spin-offs or related shows, he manages to mix so many different stories that his world is vast and ripe for further exploration. Yet Weisman’s approach comes to building an infinite world with a price. Young Justice is, after all, a story, and no matter how realistic the stories are, they inevitably end.
Some of the essential TV endings in the story are characterized by their ability to keep the viewer happy. They want more while conveying a sense of accomplishment and purpose that they otherwise would never have had. While it would be great to have endless seasons of Young Justice, it is unrealistic to predict that. Suppose the show continues indefinitely in the foreseeable future. In that case, fans can do anything to prepare to never get a punctuation mark in the latest series that satisfies them. It’s not just that kind of show.
I keep saying over and over, IT NEVER ENDS. There will never be a "proper ending" to #YoungJustice. Ever. So we'll either get more or we won't. Meanwhile, we have a gameplan for at least 3 more seasons figured out, and by the time we finished those, we'd probably have 3 more. https://t.co/pdQ2Y6oclc
