Young Justice is an animated action superhero adventure TV series that originated in America based on a comic book titled “Young Justice” written and illustrated by Todd Dezago, along with Todd Nauck and Lary Stucker. The series is developed by Brandon Vietti alongside Greg Weisman which broadcasts on Cartoon Network with the debut season launched on November 26, 2010.
Although the tithe series shares the same title as the comic book, however, the series is not entirely focused on the said comic book but is inspired by an initial tale established in the DC franchise with a centre on teens and younger superheroes. It features the voices of Jesse McCartney, Khary Payton, Jason Spisak, Nolan North, Danica McKellar, and Stephanie Lemelin.
The series revolves around the lives of young superheroes and sidekicks in their teens who are known as Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian, Red Arrow, and Artemis. They simply called themselves ‘the team’. The team is a bunch of teenage superheroes that bears a resemblance to the popular adult superheroes squad Justice League but performs outside of the system that restricts the more fixed superhero squad.
The primary background is a fictional universe distant from the last DCAU and other consistent existence during an era in which superheroes are a significantly new phenomenon, and the bad guys have all started up working in a team in a huge conspiracy on behalf of the villain The Light.
The series is very popular among the viewers and many are desperate to know whether or not the show will return with a fifth season. Here’s what we know about it.
Release date of Young Justice season 5: When is it?
When it comes to the fifth season’s release date, there’s little to no detail but we know that fans are demanding the fifth season and to make it happen as soon as possible. It’d be great if the show makers listen to the fans’ demands but so far we haven’t heard a word from them.
The first season of “Justice Young” was released on November 26, 2010, consisting of 26 episodes. The second season titled “Justice Young: Invasion” was launched on April 28, 2012. The third season titled “Young Justice: Outsiders” was divided into two parts. The first part aired on January 4, 2019, and the second part aired on July 2, 2019, on DC Universe. The fourth season titled “Young Justice: Phantoms” also divided into two parts premiered on October 16, 2021, while the second part is scheduled to be released sometime in 2022.
Coming back to the release date of the fifth season, it might take a while but probably, fans can expect the new episodes to land in late 2022 or in early or mid-2023 at the earliest.
The cast of Young Justice season 5: Who’s in it?
Likely, the core cast members that were seen in the previous seasons of Young Justice are highly expected to return in the forthcoming fifth season which means we’ll get to hear the same voices of Jesse McCartney, Danica McKellar, Nolan North, Khary Payton, and Stephanie Lemelin. Additionally, the new entrances from the previous season known as ‘the Outsiders’, will most probably make a comeback as well.
Keeping aside the other members, it’s unlikely that Wally West would return but nothing is confirmed by the show makers while we’re hoping for Jason Spisak to return in the fifth season. Here are the names of the cast which are expected to be back on the series:
