The surprise Young Justice: Phantoms drop was announced on Saturday during the show’s DC FanDome panel, which also debuted the trailer above.
Following this double-episode tastebud-tempter, new episodes of Young Justice: Phantoms will be released every Thursday beginning Oct. 21 on HBO Max.
Based on characters from DC, Young Justice: Phantoms is produced by Warner Bros. Animation, with Greg Weisman, Brandon Vietti and Sam Register serving as executive producers.
Season 4 was announced more than two years ago, at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con, and Weisman has been giving fans intermittent production updates via Twitter. Just last week, he reported that 20 episodes were “in the can,” with six still in post-production.
Weisman has also shared that whereas at one point there was talk of a five-season plan, now he can see the animated favorite having even longer legs. “Back [when making] in Season 1, we had at least five [seasons] figured out,” he tweeted. “Now, I’d say we have a fairly clear idea through Season 7, and vaguer ideas beyond that.”
