TEEN TITANS GO sets premiere date

You know, the new one.

Warner Brothers sent out this nifty little press release today announcing that Teen Titans Go premieres in April.  It’ll be replacing Young Justice.  Beware the Batman, which replaces Green Lantern the Animated Series premiers sometime in July.  Check out the press release below:

The Teen Titans are returning  to Cartoon Network with all-new comedic adventures, and this time they’re giving  viewers a look at what life is really like as a teen superhero… once the cape  comes off. The half-hour animated series, Teen Titans Go! premieres on Tuesday,  April 23, at 7:30pm (ET/PT) and will be rebroadcast during the DC Nation block  on Saturday mornings at 10:30am (ET/PT) beginning April 27.

The  character-driven comedy series focuses on the funny that happens in between  saving the world and living together as teenagers without adult supervision. The  comedic mayhem of the animated series is punctuated by pranks and the occasional  need to fight crime, but it will also deal with the everyday issues of  adolescence. With epic staring contests to decide who does the laundry, a series  of quests and battles to construct the perfect sandwich or fighting crime in  Jump City, one thing is for sure, these Titans will always be ready for an adventure inside the house and out.

The principal  voice cast from the original Teen Titans series, based on DC Comics characters,  will reprise their roles in Teen Titans Go!, with Scott Menville as the voice of  Robin, the slightly power-mad perfectionist and leader of the Teen Titans.  Hynden Walch voices Starfire, an alien struggling to fit in; Tara Strong voices  Raven, the sardonic, deadpan demon girl; Greg Cipes returns as the slightly dim  but always loveable loafer, Beast Boy; and Khary Payton provides the voice of  Cyborg, a laidback kid who is half teen, half robot.

The fan-favorite  theme song from the original Teen Titans will also be making its return to  television, with an updated remix from Mix Master Mike of the Beastie Boys. Teen Titans Go! joins a strong Tuesday night block of programming on Cartoon Network which also  includes Johnny Test (7:00pm ET/PT) and The Looney Tunes Show (8:00pm ET/PT).  Teen Titans Go! can be seen again on Saturday mornings during the DC Nation  block alongside Beware The Batman, which will premiere this summer. Green Lantern: The Animated Series and  Young Justice Invasion will end their run on March 16.

Teen Titans Go!  is produced by Warner Bros. Animation with Sam Register (MAD, Teen Titans,  Batman: The Brave and The Bold) serving as executive producer with Michael  Jelenic (ThunderCats) and Aaron Horvath (MAD) as producers.
