Greg Weisman tells us that he believes that the show will be repeat-free through the finale. “It’s not up to us, but now as part of DC Nation, I think we’re going to play out the first season through Episode 26. Episode 21 aired this morning [March 17]. As far as I know, the plan is to go right through 26, and then continue right into Season 2. That’s what we’ve been told,” he says, seemingly aware of fan complaints about long hiatuses.
Toy packaging art recently surfaced that included the DC characters Blue Beetle and Lagoon Boy. Might we see them in Season 2 as a part of the team? “You’ll definitely be seeing them in Season 2, but I never said they were a part of the team,” Weisman says. He did, however, confirm some more characters, some that we have only seen in brief glimpses, will be seen more.”You’ll be seeing more of Rocket in Season 1. Absolutely. She’s a really fun character, and we had a great time with that character,” he says.
We answer a lot of questions, but we leave one very specific question mark at the end, that doesn’t just tease Season 2; it launches us into Season 2.” He also tells us that if we watch the timestamps on the show, Season 1 ends on December 31st and Season 2 begins on January 1st.
Season 2, which is given the subtitle of “Invasion,” will feature “at least nine alien races from the DCU,” according to Vietti. “That’s not even counting Kryptonians or Martians that you’ve already seen,” he teases. Both producers noted that it’s interesting that YJ is in a programming block with Green Lantern, in that while GL has a man going out into space, YJ Season 2 has characters from space coming to Earth.
