To Whom It May Concern
I’m writing as a devoted fan of the show Young Justice to express my dissatisfaction with your unsettling decision of discontinuing the series.
For two years now, Young Justice has been well received among critics who have lauded for its cohesive writing, complex plot lines, strong characterization, and a remarkably talented cast and crew. I think that all of these reasons should have ensured a renewal and it would further establish Cartoon Network as a purveyor of high quality animated series.
Likewise, Young Justice is unquestionably a very popular show amongst its viewers. Case in point, when the show came back from a three months hiatus on September 29, 2012, the episode “Satisfaction” garnered an average of 1,769 million viewers, making it the second highest rating episode of the morning block, second only to Star Wars. Then, when the episode “Before the Dawn” was pulled from the October schedule, but was erroneously made available on iTunes on Sunday, it quickly topped the downloaded charts for the “Animation” category and within hours it became the most downloaded episode of all genres. In spite of all this, the episode still scored 1,773 million viewers, when it finally aired three months later.
Additionally, the season two part 1 DVD set reached #4 of Amazon Best Sellers Rank in the “Kids & Family” category on its release day.
Not surprisingly, the series’s absence from your returning shows list sparked a wave of indignation and convulsion among fans, across the Internet. There are a few on-line petitions going around with thousands of signatures and talks of other forms of civilized protest.
As you may know, the overall narration of Young Justice relies on twists and turns, multiple questions being raised every time one is answered, and overarching storylines. Canceling the show before the producers can finish their intended story is a disservice to the legion of fans that this show has hoarded, by leaving a gap in a tightly-woven story that will never be filled.
To conclude, I am profoundly displeased with your decision to discontinue this remarkable series, and I’d like to kindly ask you to, please, give it another chance and pick it up for a final season, or at least a mini-series special that can wrap the story up and give its devoted fans a satisfying conclusion.
Pleasepleaseplease do this!!! It’s not a hard thing to do, and it just might save our beloved Young Justice!
