Netflix Is Considering a Third Season of Young Justice, But You Have to Keep Watching
A Young Justice revival has gotten a lot of buzz in the last few days, ever since it was reported that writer Peter David had met with Netflix. As it turns out, that report is false, but Netflix is, in fact, considering a third season—if you keep watching it.

On Tuesday, outlets started reporting that David had met with Netflix about a third season based on a conversation with a fan (via Reddit). The fan claimed that at Connecticut's TerrificCon, David confirmed that Young Justice had been canceled as a result of toy sales, and revealed that he had met with Netflix about a possible third season. But it wasn't a direct quote, and David took to Twitter to crush everyone's hopes and dreams:

But take heart, Young Justice fans, because it's not over yet. While David was misquoted about actual meetings taking place, producer Greg Weisman has confirmed that Netflix is "seriously considering" a third season, so long as fans keep watching the first two on the streaming service.

Here's David's clarification on his website:

Opening quote
"Well, I had lunch with Greg Weisman a few weeks ago, and he said that Netflix is seriously considering ordering a third season because they're impressed with how much people are watching it. So if you want to make it happen, keep on doing that."

That's what I've been saying for the past month, countless times, ever since I had lunch with Greg before San Diego. Seems pretty straightforward.

He then reiterated that the recent flurry of news was the result of a misquote, and urged fans to keep watching if they want a revival to happen:

Opening quote
I'm now worried it could do damage to the cause, because people might think, "We did it! There's gonna be a third season, done deal!" and then stop watching. Which would then cause Netflix to say, "Hunh, people have stopped watching, guess it was just a passing fad," and that's that.

So I will say it once more: It is NOT a done deal. So continue watching "Young Justice" if you want to have a hope of a third season.
