BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES To Continue As New Audio Drama With Original Voice Cast
We don't have too much to go on, but Kevin Conroy (Batman) and John Glover (The Riddler) have revealed that the classic '90s Batman: The Animated Series will continue in the form of a new audio drama.
Earlier this year, a rumor that Warner Bros. was developing a follow-up to the '90s Batman: The Animated Series for HBO Max did the rounds, and while that doesn't appear to be the case, we do have confirmation that the iconic show will continue - though probably not in the form most fans had been hoping for.
During a History of the Batman panel at Los Angeles Comic-Con, voice actors Kevin Conroy (Bruce Wayne/Batman) and John Glover (The Riddler) revealed that the series will return as audio drama with the original cast set to reprise their roles.
“It’s a great script by Alan Burnett, and it brings back the original cast,” said Conroy, before Glover added that “The Riddler’s back, and he’s evolved in many ways … He understands he’s on the spectrum.” The pair also confirmed that original composer Danny Elfman will write a new theme.
It's a shame this terrific show won't continue in animated form, but this is the next best thing, and with the original cast returning it's certain to be worth a listen.
Batman: The Animated Series ran for three seasons between 1992 and 1995, and is still widely viewed as one of, if not the best comic book animated shows of all time.
