Plot Synopsis

Because of it's high profile, The Justice League can no longer effectively fight supervillains; so a group of teenage superheroes bands together, partly working undercover to fight crime. Led by Aqualad, these youngsters want to prove to others -- and themselves -- that they belong with the great heroes of history, but they must also survive adolescence. The core Young Justice team includes: Aqualad (age 15); Robin (age 13); Kid Flash (age 15); Superboy (age 16 weeks); Miss Martian (age 16, in Martian years); Artemis (age 15). Plus, 16 of the regular Justice League members appear. Cartoon Network aired a two-episode sneak peek of the series on Friday, November 26, 2010 -- the day after Thanksgiving -- with the series officially premiering on Friday, January 7, 2011 at 7pm.

After nearly a six-year break, YOUNG JUSTICE returned for a third season, titled YOUNG JUSTICE: OUTSIDERS, on Friday, January 4, 2019 at 9am ET/6am PT, as DC Universe released three new episodes. The new season features the return of the fan favorite animated series with a huge cast of DC's most iconic young superheroes - plus brand-new characters, many of whom are just discovering their unique meta-powers and special abilities. Set against the backdrop of a rich, deep world that touches all corners of the DC Universe, the season focuses on meta-trafficking, and an intergalactic arms race for control of these super-powered youths. DC Universe releases one new episode each subsequent Friday. A little more than five months after the Season 3 mid-season finale, YOUNG JUSTICE: OUTSIDERS returned to DC Universe with three new episodes on Tuesday, July 2, 2019. DC Universe releases one new episode on subsequent Tuesdays at 9am ET/6am PT.
