sentences without swearing. :-\

Rumor: Batman The Animated Series Sequel In Development At HBO Max
A Batman: The Animated Series sequel may be in development at HBO Max.
At least according to Kevin Smith and his Fatman Beyond co-host Marc
Bernardin who claimed to have heard the news from some very reliable

"The rumor is that HBO Max is looking at making a Batman: The Animated
Series sequel, that they want to continue that forward," Bernardin
said to a very excited-looking Smith, who chimed in by stating he had
heard a similar rumor over a month ago from a very reliable source.

"I think that's real," Smith continued. "I don't think that's a rumor,
I wouldn't say 'Set your watch to it,' but it's an idea whose time is
not only coming, I think it came, and it's smoking a cigarette. I
think that's gonna happen. How f**king amazing would that be because
you can just literally pick up and keep going. It's not like, 'oh we
gotta explain why everyone's older,' it's f**king animation man so you
can go right back to those amazing fucking stories."

Again, all of this is little more than a rumor for now, but it makes
sense for HBO Max to continue the very popular (and still quite
amazing) animated series on its streaming platform particularly
considering the popularity of side characters such as Harley Quinn.

"That to me is no brainer," Smith continued, "you've got HBO Max,
you're already doing that amazing Harley Quinn show, like, you're
printing money if you go back and do Batman: The Animated Series. You
can't f**k up the legacy, that's for damn sure. You know what I'm
saying, it's not like 'oh they went back and did it again and now
it's ruined,' like some people felt about Twin Peaks. You can't f**k
it up, there's no reason not to do it, as long as you've got the key
creative components, as long as Bruce Timm is involved, wants to be
there. F***ing go for it for heaven's sakes."

Hey, if they can bring back the Animaniacs, then why not Batman?

For those not familiar with the show, here's the plot synopsis from
DC Animated Universe: Batman: The Animated Series was an Emmy
Award-winning animated series that ran from 1992 to 1995 on FOX Kids,
effectively beginning the DCAU. The series focused on the exploits of
Batman and his crusade against injustice in modern-day Gotham City, a
dark, gothic, crime-ridden area.

The show features the voice talents of Kevin Conroy as Batman and Mark
Hamill as the Joker (among many others), who have returned to reprise
their roles in various movie spinoffs and video game adaptations.
