Young Justice: Outsiders is slated to make its DC Universe debut in early January, but fans who have been anticipating the return of the young heroes have just received an early Christmas gift in the form of a new trailer.
Outsiders kicks off Friday, January 4 on the DC streaming service, with a three episode debut. The series will continue to release three episodes every Friday until the mid-season finale on January 25, which will see four episodes released.
Ahead of Outsiders' arrival, DC Nation will launch an "enhanced" version of Season 1 and 2. Starting December 4, the streaming service will release episodes form the show's first two seasons with trivia and commentary from comic book creators, actors and Young Justice's producers
"Each episode will feature commentary, interviews and inside information from from a wide range of Young Justice experts," the official release states, "from stars of the Whelmed podcast Rich Howard, Emily Buza, and Neal Powell (the superfans who helped to bring the show back to DC Universe), to DC experts like Sam Humphries, Bernard Chang, James Tynion IV and of course Young Justice producers Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti and art director Phil Bourassa."
Once Outsiders debuts, DC Nation will also take fans behind the scenes of the series with cast member and DC Daily host Whitney Moore. The behind-the scenes documentary kicks off Tuesday, January 8 and will run for five, 10-minute episodes.
Young Justice originally aired for two seasons, from 2011 to 2013, on Cartoon Network before ending with the epic “Invasion” storyline. After years of lobbying by fans and creators alike, Warner Bros. Animation finally announced in 2017 that the series would return for a third season. Although it was widely assumed Season 3 would air on Cartoon Network, alongside Teen Titans Go! and Justice League Action, Warner Bros. revealed in April that Young Justice: Outsiders will instead will join the live-action Titans and Swamp Thing series, as well as an adult-oriented animated Harley Quinn show on Warner Bros.’ upcoming DC Comics-branded digital platform, DC Universe.
Executive produced by Sam Register, and produced by co-creators Vietti and Greg Weisman, Young Justice: Outsiders will find the teen heroes facing their greatest challenge as they fight meta-human trafficking “and the terrifying threat it creates for a society caught in the crossfire of a genetic arms race spanning the globe and the galaxy.”
Young Justice: Outsiders is planned for 26 episodes, debuting on DC Universe in 2019.
