It’s been off the air since last October, but Beware the Batman is coming back to your TV… on Blu-ray and DVD! Unfortunately the reason why Cartoon Network pulled the show is still unknown. This was the statement that Batman News was given last year:
Currently, Beware the Batman is no longer on our air. DC Nation will continue on Saturday mornings at 10/9c with new exclusive shorts and a full hour of encore episodes of Teen Titans Go!
I’ve reached out to Cartoon Network again, and will update this post if I receive any new information.
Beware the Batman Season 1, Part 1 will be released next week on February 18th and includes two episodes that have never been seen before.
