Young Justice Season 5 is trending again due to the 4th season’s finale, which premiered not long ago. The anxious fandom has questions that the makers are yet to answer. Are you also looking for Young Justice Season 5’s release date and potential plot line? Well, we got you covered with this article!
Until now, we are not entirely sure if the 5th season will happen. This unsureness stems from the fact that the creators have not revealed much about the show’s future beyond the 4th season. But this is not a red flag. Why? Because the show has quite a strong fan following, and the viewership hasn’t declined much. To know more about the chances of a 5th season happening, continue reading!
Young Justice Season 5 Cast
The finale of the 4th season was full of action, and it did entail a lot of twists. But did it hint at who can return in Young Justice Season 5? Unfortunately, we don’t have any such leads on the matter up till now. However, you can expect the main characters who lived until the 26th episode to star in the 5th installment. But let it be known that this is not official news!
From the show’s beginning, Raquel Erwin, commonly known as Rocket, has been a fan favorite. But as we saw in the 4th season, she went through a lot, and because of the tragic events, everyone assumed that she died. But the character made a heroic recovery in the finale. Well, this rules out all the rumors that claimed her to be dead. It is still unsure how she made it out of the accident. There’s also a theory that Rocket might have returned from the dead. Well, this means 5th season of Young Justice will have to resolve this issue surrounding Rocket’s mysterious comeback. But what about other characters?
The showrunners haven’t spoken up about the characters of the upcoming season. But according to our speculations, you can expect the following to return:
- Denise Boutte as Rocket.
- Lacey Chabert as Zatanna.
- Greg Cipes as Beast Boy.
- Stephanie Lemelin as Tigress.
- Jesse McCartney as Nightwing.
- Danica McKellar as Miss Martian.
- Phil Morris as Lor-Zod.
- Nolan North as Superboy.
Of course, their original voice cast will also come back. And who knows, we might even get more characters if the show lives on to tell the tale!
Young Justice Season 5 Release Date
Neither Greg Weisman nor Brandon Vietti has revealed the future of the franchise. However, we did gather some information from their social media accounts. While replying to a fan’s query, Greg Weisman revealed that the Young Justice Season 5 is not a matter of ‘when.’ So, this means that ‘if’ the 5th season is to come, then the show must fare well on HBO Max in comparison to other shows.
There is no official release date for the 5th installment. But as always, we have made assumptions based on certain facts and figures. The 4th season came out two years after the preceding season. If the same trend is followed, expect the 5th installment to land in 2024. Well, that is a long wait!
The good news is that the final episode of the 4th season did not wrap up the story completely. Still, certain plot lines need to be explored.
Of course, Young Justice Season 5 will follow the events of the 4th season. So, this means that some sort of conflict will make one of the subplots of the upcoming season. If you’ve watched the 4th season, you must have noticed how Beast Boy’s story did not turn out to be a hit. So, the writers may let this story grow on the viewers in the upcoming seasons.
The Legion story also has the potential to make it to the 5th season. It is believed that Ma’alefa’ak and the other descendants will gradually become a part of the Chameleon Boy’s race. That will indeed be an interesting storyline!
Now comes the most interesting bit: the post-credits scenes of the fourth season’s finale. The Young Justice Season 5 will follow either of the two stories, the most unpopular ones of the DC comic stories. This is a risky move because, according to certain reports, this plot can also follow beyond the 5th season. But now the question arises will the audience stick around for the 5th season? Well, that is a topic for another day. Our safest bet is that Young Justice 5 will focus on Super-girl (and Mary as well). Because in the post-credits scenes, we got to see both of them. If the writers make this story work, they deserve the awards.
There is no official trailer for the 5th season of Young Justice. HBO Max is yet to renew the show, so hopefully, we’ll get a teaser or a promotional video following the renewal. So, until then, stay tuned!
