Batman: The Animated Series returning as audio series

Prepare to head back to Gotham with the cast and crew of Batman: The Animated Series in a new audio series.

During Los Angeles Comic Con, Kevin Conroy – voice actor for Bruce Wayne and Batman in Batman: The Animated Series – announced during a “History of the Batman” panel that he is returning to his most famous role. Joined by John Glover who plays the Riddler, they also shared that writer Alan Burnett is writing the project.

“It’s a great script by Alan Burnett and it brings back the original cast,” said Conroy.

“The Riddler’s back, and he’s evolved in many ways … He understands he’s on the spectrum,” said Glover.

No word yet on how long the series will be, or how many other cast members will appear. Mark Hammill (The Joker) has previously announced he has retired from the role. Arleen Sorkin originated the role of Harley Quinn, but has since retired from acting and that duty has gone to Tara Strong for most projects. Other surviving castmembers include Paul Williams (The Penguin), Richard Moll (Two-Face), David Warner (Ra’s Al Ghul), Diane Pershing (Poison Ivy), Adrienne Barbeau (Catwoman), Ron Perlman (Clayface), Melissa Gilbert (Barbara Gordon) and Loren Lester (Dick Grayson / Nightwing). That’s a good taste of the series by any measure.

Batman: The Animated Series ran from 1992 to 1995 for a total of 85 episodes. It also spawned one feature film, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. Conroy would also go on to voice an older Bruce Wayne in the follow-up series, Batman Beyond.
