Sad news comes to DC Comics and Green Lantern fans who have tuned in religiously to Cartoon Network's "Green Lantern: The Animated Series", as the network has decided not to pick up the series again for a second season. The news comes directly from a very disappointed Bruce Timm, who created the series and sadly confirmed the news during his time in this year's Emerald City Comiccon, which was reported in Bleeding Cool. The series started in 2011, and despite being in 3D, was aimed to follow in the footsteps and vein of its predecessors such as Batman: The Animated Series and Justice League Unlimited.
The cancellation of the computer-generated animated series under Warner Bros. Animation is due to poor sales in retail merchandise. Due to retailers being reluctant to order anything from the show after what happened with the 2011 Ryan Reynolds' starring Green Lantern movie, there was not much revenue to fund the show, and it led to the cancellation of the series. More on the story can be read from the source post at Bleeding Cool.
