Cartoon Network released information for their 2011-2012 season and there was a ton of news.
First up, both Young Justice and Batman: The Brave and the Bold received news season orders. Both shows will return. Although this will probably be the last season of Batman: The Brave and the Bold based on the announcement last year from the creators stating that they would finish up making enough episodes to hit the magic number for the show to be syndicated.
The other big news is that Cartoon Network will be debuting a new show called DC Nation. Little was revealed about the show about The Source did post the announcement up.
Debuting in 2012 as a multi-platform franchise, DC Nation will be the exclusive home for original DC animation properties. Backed by the production, publishing and marketing resources of Warner Bros., DC Entertainment and Cartoon Network, DC Nation will be an on-air and online programming block populated with event programming, interstitials, exclusive behind-the-scenes of theatrical production and an insider look into the world of all things DC.
“DC Nation on Cartoon Network will be the first-ever dedicated broadcast destination to showcase the depth and breadth of the DC Universe,” said Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment. “We and our partners at WBTV are thrilled that fans will be able to immerse themselves in DC’s phenomenal stories, experience a wide spectrum of amazing characters and stay up-to-date on the latest happenings of the world’s greatest superheroes and their creators, both on-air and online.”
So we can expect to see growth in the DC Entertainment side of things as far as shows go on Cartoon Network. Interested in how this show turns out.
