Young Justice is one step closer to making its triumphant return!
Fans including myself rejoiced when it was announced that Young Justice would be returning for a third season. Up to this point, we hadn’t had many updates on the status of the new season until now.
Khary Payton, the actor who voices Aqualad, officially announced on Twitter that voice work has officially started on the new episodes:
This news is small, but ironically, it’s also huge. It’s been over four years since any of us have seen a new episode of Young Justice, and now we’re a bit closer to getting a brand new set of stories. It’s also good to know that at least some of the major cast members will be returning.

For those who don’t know, Young Justice is an animated series that was created by Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti, and it originally premiered on the Cartoon Network back in 2010. The show notably switched the focus from the Justice League to the sidekicks of the iconic heroes including: Robin, Aqualad, Superboy, Kid Flash, Miss Martian, and Artemis. The show later introduced fan favorites like Beast Boy and Blue Beetle.
The show was praised by critics for its animation style, mature storytelling and character development, which is something that is rarely seen in many animated series today. Unfortunately, the show was suddenly cancelled after its second season in 2013. It has since developed a massive cult following, and a fan campaign began to get the show back on the air.
This is why it was such a big deal when we learned that the show would return. We still don’t know exactly when it will air, but with the showrunners and actors returning, it should be more than worth the wait.
Young Justice Season 3 is expected to debut sometime in 2017.
