My Adventures With Superman announced that season 2 has begun production after the tenth and last episode of season 1 ended. This is excellent news as the show was thought to be on the cancellation block during Warner Bros.' content purge following its merger with Discovery.
Batman: Caped Crusader was scrapped at HBO Max before eventually finding a new home at Amazon Prime Video and it was thought that My Adventures With Superman might suffer a similar fate.
Instead, Cartoon Network gave the series a two-season order but some fans were concerned that the ongoing SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes would put the new animated take on the Last Son of Krypton back on the chopping block.
Studios have already canceled a number of previously renewed or popular series, citing the ongoing strikes as the cause for such an unexpected move.
The My Adventures With Superman season 1 finale hinted that SPOILER: [General Zod] will soon return in season 2 to attack the Earth.
The fansite Superman Homepage recently interviewed My Adventures With Superman co-producer and writer Josephine Campbell, who confirmed that season 2 would also consist of 10 episodes. While Campbell didn't confirm a release date for season 2, she did hint that production work on the next round of episodes is pretty far along.
My Adventures with Superman was created and developed by Jake Wyatt (Steven Universe, 2013 DuckTales) for Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. Following the release of new episodes on Adult Swim, the latest episodes are then uploaded to the Max streaming service.
The show features Jack Quaid as Clark Kent aka Superman, Alice Lee as Lois Lane, and Ishmel Sahid as Jimmy Olsen.
Actors appearing in recurring roles include Darrell Brown as Perry White, Kari Wahlgren as Martha Kent, Reid Scott as Jonathan Kent, Chris Parnell as Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke, Debra Wilson as Amanda Waller, and Joel de la Fuente as General Sam Lane.
The series is animated by Korea-based Studio Mir, who previously produced The Boondocks, The Legend of Korra, and Netflix's Voltron: Legendary Defender.
