Everything You Need to Know Before Watching Young Justice Season 4

What do you mean by Young Justice?

Brandon Vietti and Greg Weisman created the animated superhero television series, Young Justice. The show first aired on Cartoon Network, then transferred to DC Universe for its third season and HBO Max for its fourth season.

The book depicts a gang of teenage superheroes and sidekicks known as “the team,” including Robin, Kid Flash, Aqualad, Superboy, Red Arrow, Miss Martian, and Arrowette (but bear a resemblance to the Teen Titans). A squad is a group of juvenile heroes affiliated with the famed adult team, the Justice League but operate outside of the bureaucracy in the program.

Except for the first season, every season of Young Justice has a subtitle. Young Justice: Invasion was the title of season two, while Outsiders and Phantoms were seasons three and four, respectively. Seasons one through three have already been released, while season four (Phantoms) is now in production.


Young Justice was a breath of fresh air in comparison to past DC ventures. Rather than focusing a new series on well-known characters like Batman and Superman, the animation focused on their young proteges. While the likes of Robin and Superboy were well-known to the general public, lesser-known comic book characters, such as Miss Martian, Artemis, and Impulse, finally got their moment to shine. Unfortunately, the excellent series was ended after two seasons due to low toy sales.

Fans didn’t take it lying down, and petitions soon followed, as is customary these days when a favorite show is canceled. However, fans’ prayers were ultimately fulfilled when it was announced that the show would return for a third season, although this time on DC Universe rather than Cartoon Network. While it appeared that the purpose of season 3 would be to tie up all loose ends from the first run, more questions were raised. Soon after the cartoon’s return, it was announced that season 4 was in the works, jumping platforms once more and premiering exclusively on HBO Max with the subtitle Phantoms, as said by CBR.

Young Justice has proved that it isn’t hesitant to make some bold decisions regarding what it takes from the comics so that future episodes might go in various directions.

Young Justice season 4 has yet to be given a release date, but it appears that fans will not have to wait as long as they did for the third season. On April 2021, Greg Weisman said that nine episodes of Young Justice season 4 were completed and six additional were in post-production. Season 4 pre-production is virtually complete, according to Weisman. Thus it could premiere in late 2021 or early 2022, according to several sources. While the exact release date for Young Justice season 4 is unknown, it is known that it will premiere on HBO Max and will consist of 26 episodes.

The plot

while the series is noted for borrowing heavily from the DC Universe in its plots. The official title Young Justice: Phantoms, on the other hand, may allude to a “ghosts from the past” element in season 4’s plot. Fans have hypothesized that this could signify the return of fan-favorite Wally West (AKA Kid Flash), who appeared to die in Young Justice season 2’s final episode. The show’s season 3 finale may have given some hints about what to expect from Young Justice season 4.

In the episode’s final scene, a waitress wore a ring bearing the symbol of the Legion of Superheroes, a group of time-traveling teen heroes who would be ideal for Young Justice. The Legion of Superheroes is almost certain to debut in Young Justice season 4 based on that closing scene.

The Cast

As with any new season of Young Justice, additional heroes and villains are sure to join the fray. Unfortunately, there have been no additional casting announcements yet, most likely to keep fans from speculating about potential storyline spoilers. After all, it’s reasonable to assume that the major cast of characters from previous seasons will return.

Aside from that, it’s safe to presume that the primary cast will remain in their roles, as no big departures have been announced.

Which Includes,
• Dick Grayson/Robin/Nightwing (Jesse McCartney)
• Conner Kent/Superboy (Nolan North)
• M’gann M’orzz/Miss Martian (Danica McKellar)
• Kaldur’ahm/Aqualad (Khary Payton)
• Artemis Crock/Tigress (Stephanie Lemelin)

Each successive season brings new members to the squad, with season 3 focusing on newcomers such as,
• Prince Brion Markov/Geo-Force (Troy Baker)
• Violet Harper/Halo (Zehra Fazal)
• Victor Stone/Cyborg (Zeno Robinson)

With the possibility of The Signal, Teen Lantern, and Amethyst joining the ranks, DC Comics has a large pool of characters to choose from.

Between the expectation of these episodes and the actual episodes, there is a significant gap. Hopefully, instead of dragging the series or rushing the plotlines, the creators will be able to make good use of the time allotted. In addition, fans had anticipated seeing their beloved heroes’ characters grow and mature.
