Trying to understand this.
Trying to piece together this series of events. I may skip a few things, so, bear with me a bit, or at least humor me.
Cartoon Network premieres DC Nation, a new block showcasing a pair of DC Comics-based programming, on March 3, 2012.
The block went on hiatus for the summer after the last new episode of Young Justice aired in June. The summer passed, and the block returned on September 29 with very little promotion on-air.
Two weeks after the block returns with new episodes, Cartoon Network unceremoniously takes DC Nation off the lineup replacing it with reruns of Dragons: Riders of Berk on Saturdays and reruns of Johnny Test on Sundays. No explanation was offered until many hours later in the tweet that is pictured above:.
Hey #DCNation fans! Have you heard?? DC Nation will return in January with all new episodes!
Now, people are panicking thinking they’re going to scrap Young Justice and Green Lantern altogether and replace it with Beware the Batman and Teen Titans Go when it returns in January. No proof to that, but the whole situation seems … what’s the word? … stupid.
It seems really really stupid.
I’m not panicking nor trying to cause alarm.
It just seems that something seems kind of off about this series of events and the way it transpired. Creators are left in the dark, and fans are disappointed, especially considering the block just came back two weeks ago. If it came back two months ago, there probably wouldn’t be such an uproar about the January return. But considering there was a three-month hiatus and now there’s another three-month hiatus happening, frustration is probably the tamest emotion to some fans.
Just seems … off. And stupid.
At least during the summer break, it was still on the air in repeat mode. NOW? Just straight-up gone without advance warning. I agree with you that this whole thing feels off and stupid.
