Few animated series have engendered the passionate following that Young Justice garnered in only two short seasons. Praised by critics and fans alike, the series makes its triumphant return on January 4 exclusively on DC UNIVERSE in the US.
Young Justice: Outsiders continues the story with our heroes still dealing with the events of season 2 while facing the new threat of metahuman teen trafficking and the intergalactic arms race for control of these super-powered youths. To get ready for the exciting new season members will have access to enhanced episodes from the first two seasons, new original prequel comic book chapters, and a behind-the-scenes documentary featuring DC Daily host and Young Justice voice talent, Whitney Moore.
“Young Justice: Outsiders epitomizes the kind of fan-first series that DC UNIVERSE can deliver directly to our members. The passion that surrounded this unique serial strongly points to the reason our direct-to-consumer service is a fan win. Not only does DC UNIVERSE provide a place for our creative talent to spread their wings, it provides a home for fan-favorite DC Super Heroes stories.”
Three episodes of Young Justice: Outsiders will premiere every Friday starting on January 4, and will continue through January 18. For the mid-season finale on January 25, four new episodes will debut. The show will return to DC UNIVERSE for the second half of the season with more new episodes in June 2019.
