Young Justice co-Producer Greg Weisman has updated fans on the current status of the show in the wake of Cartoon Network’s announcement that they have commissioned a second season. The new series is a special 10-part mini-series called Young Justice: Invasion. Weisman revealed that work has already begun on the Invasion series.
We immediately began work on this new season last week, and are breaking approximately (but not quite) one episode per day. The creative team is fundamentally the same as for Season One.
And though, of course, we will be introducing many new characters episodically in Season Two (just as we do episodically in Season One), I don’t want to give the impression that this is some spin-off featuring, I dunno, the League or something, in the same Earth-16 setting. Invasion IS the second season of Young Justice and absolutely features our “Team”. Episode 26 of Season One is time-stamped “December 31″. Episode 1 of Season Two will be time-stamped “January 1″, in essence picking up right where we left off.
As of the moment Young Justice is a repeat cycle of the first 9 episodes and episodes 10 and 11 are in post-production. All of April’s showing are repeats. CN appear to be showing the repeats in sequence – if they show all the material it’ll be into mid-May before they repeat the repeats or they segway into new material. The rest of the 26-episodes have been written and the dialogue has been recorded.
