The latest addition to the DC Universe streaming service finally has a premiere date. DC Entertainment has announced that the third season of Young Justice: Outsiders will debut on January 4, 2019.
Young Justice originally premiered on Cartoon Network in 2010, presenting viewers with a brand new take on DC’s younger heroes. The series had a two-season run before it was prematurely cancelled in 2013. But a passionate fan following kept the series in the spotlight which allowed creators Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti to renew interest in the show. DC Entertainment subsequently picked up the series for a new season in 2016.
Emmy Award-winner Phil Bourassa (Young Justice) will serve as art director, with Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!), Brandon Vietti (Superman Doomsday) and Greg Weisman (Star Wars Rebels) producing the series.
Young Justice: Outsiders follows the teenage superheroes of the DC Universe in an action-packed animated world of adventure and supervillains. The highly anticipated new season sees the team face its greatest challenge yet as they take 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.
The first trailer for Young Justice: Outsiders premiered at San Deigo Comic Con in June. Because it’s been a long time since Young Justice last aired, the footage begins with a recap of season two. Viewers are then treated to montage of new Outsiders footage where Artemis is seen adjusting to life without Wally West. New and returning characters are featured as the meta-human trafficking story is teased. Artemis / Tigris, Nightwing and Superboy reunite to investigate what’s been going on in Markovia.
Unfortunately, Young Justice: Outsiders is currently exclusive to the DC Universe streaming service in the U.S only. But, hopefully, it will join Titans on Netflix or on some other (legally) accessible platform for fans outside the U.S.
