For DC fans starving for season 4 of ‘Young Justice’, your wait might end sooner than expected.
‘Young Justice’, which is waiting for its season 4, is one of the many immensely popular animated shows based on the DC comics. Though a lot like ‘Batman: The Animated Series’, ‘Superman: The Animated Series’, ‘Justice League’, and many other DC animated shows, ‘Young Justice’ is not directly a part of the DC animated universe. But the show consists of almost the entire DC universe and is as good a show as you expect from a DC.

Has season 4 of ‘Young Justice’ been announced?
There’s a lot of talk regarding the confirmation of ‘Young Justice’ Season 4 by DC and WB. After three years of hibernation due to the cancellation of the series on CN, WB renewed the show for a season 3.
It was announced on November 7, 2016, by Warner Bros. Animation that the third season for the show would be titled ‘Young Justice: Outsiders’. The season premiered on DC Universe on January 4, 2019.
While it took a couple of months, in July 2019 it was again confirmed that the show will be coming for a season 4. This was announced by the show’s creators Vietti and Weisman at San Diego Comic-Con on July 20. Considering the show’s popularity, WB might even order a season 5 before the premiere of season 4, who knows!
Is there any confirmation on the release date of season 4?
DC has not confirmed any release date for the season 4 of ‘Young Justice’ as of now. However, back when the world was normal during the announcement of season 4 in 2019, it was expected that the show might hit the screens in mid-2020.
But the pandemic had brought the entire movie and TV industry to a halt. Thus, just like every other show, fans were speculating the impact of lockdown on the production of season 4. It has been reported that season 4 of the show might get pushed to mid-2021 due to production delays.
However, some sources close to DC have been reporting otherwise. They are of the view that season 4 of the show might hit earlier than expected. It’s being rumoured that DC might release season 4 around its previously expected date. It may be ready to premiere around October – November 2020.
However, since there is no official conformation of this news, we’ll need to wait to hear from DC and Warner Bros.
What is ‘Young Justice’ about?
The series, rather than being adapted from one storyline, adapts the entire DC universe. The storyline of ‘Young Justice’ revolves around a selection of teenage and young adult superheroes from DC. The team, or the group to which all the members belong, is usually referred to as ‘the team’.
The show’s setting and the characters, though mostly the same as found in the comic, are set apart from the entire DCAU and other continuities. It’s set on Earth-16 of DC universe, in the times when the superheroes weren’t very popular in the world in which they existed.
