Cartoon Network has released their programming schedule for the month of January 2014 and although it was previously established that Beware the Batman would return in January, it remains absent from the programming schedule.
It was reported back in October that new episodes of Beware the Batman were pulled from Cartoon Network’s schedule, to be replaced with reruns of the show before slowly disappearing from the schedule altogether. It lead to numerous reports and speculation that the new series had been cancelled, despite consistent ratings and Happy Meal toys. It was disheartening to see this happen to a show that was slowly gaining its footing. However, there were reports stating that the show would return in January 2014.
The news here is that CN’s programming schedule for January 2014 was released without Beware the Batman, instead replaced with more Teen Titans Go! reruns. When asked about the puzzling absence of Beware the Batman, a CN representative said “updates will be forthcoming soon about future plans for Beware the Batman.”
In retrospect, I should have expected this. Not only was Young Justice unjustly cancelled, but during YJ’s run, it was wrought with random hiatuses. It took literally years to run the first season of YJ, with 6-month to year-long breaks in between episodes. With that being said, I assume that will likely occur with BtB.
There are still 15 episodes of Beware the Batman that have not been aired.
What do you think? Did you want more Beware the Batman? Or do you think that it’s done, for the most part?
