The fan following of the show is very high. There is a Facebook group with over 400,000 members in it. Fans got a little hope when Netflix entered the show in the list on the website. The fans started streaming the tv series instantly and started giving it a 5-star rating. They are still in hope that Netflix will carry out the next season in the franchise. (check: Game of Thrones season 6 episode 2.)
However, people are still hoping the season 3. Brandon Vietti appeared on the show ‘Shanlian on Batman’ podcast. He had been the writer and producer for the show. He made the following statement and maybe wanted to state that it was the decision of Warner Bros.
“… it’s like all above my pay grade. If there’s anything going on it’s like way above me,”
“It’s one of those things where like Greg [Weisman] and I developed a show, but with other people’s characters. You know what I mean? So, it’s not ours to go pitch. I wish I could tell you more. I wish I could say ‘Yeah we’re in talks!’ But, I’m not in any talks. It’s not for me. It’s not my thing to go talk about.
Maybe we’ll get some good news about it someday. Greg and I, Phil Bourassa, our character designer, we’re all anxious to jump back in the world. We have more stories to tell, we’d love to do it and honestly we’re on stand by until our bosses come and say, ‘We want to make more.’,” Vietti added.
Moreover, even if Netflix gets ready for the next season, then it relies on the ruling of the owners of Warner Bros. Everything of the show is a property of the company and it is being rumored that they canceled it because they wanted to start a new Batman show. It didn’t work out as it got poor ratings and networks pulled out.
Latest reports suggest that Warner Bros. is planning to start a new Justice League cartoon. Thus, it seems that they are highly unlikely to return to the next installment.
