Episodes 7, 8, and 9 where overwhelmingly centered on decoding mysteries. Yet, Outsiders replenished fans with plenty of other questions.

Young Justice: Outsiders is off to a super start, and we can't wait to see what happens next.

Feb 15, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Young Justice: Outsiders does a solid job of providing a good way of getting into the rhythm of the show's larger world and figuring out what's what, and for those who've been waiting for the series' return, you definitely won't be disappointed.

Feb 15, 2019 | Full Review…

While the show does maintain some of the previous seasons' magic and it's nice to see the OGs grown up, this new season's approach to narrative and character is all over the place.

Feb 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Animated series breathes new life into superhero sidekicks.

Feb 5, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Young Justice: Outsiders won't be purchase-worthy to everyone, but if you're game and you go for it, it's got more to offer than a lot of its big screen, live-action counterparts. Also, there's magma.

Jan 16, 2019 | Rating: 8.0/10 | Full Review…

Make no mistake, even with more blood, Young Justice: Outsiders continues to do what it does best, namely balance a darker, action-driven plot-line with realistic character development and relationships.

Jan 8, 2019 | Full Review…

The series at times flirts with being a bit too dark and humorless for its own good, but it's clear that mature, story-driven approach is just as appealing now as it was before.

Jan 8, 2019 | Rating: 8.6/10 | Full Review…

All things considered, Young Justice: Outsiders is poised to be a compelling and wild ride more than worthy of becoming DC Universe's second original series and first original animated series.

Audience Reviews for Young Justice: Outsiders

    This season was not good. While the first half of the season was good the second half was ruined by preachy unsubtle social and political commentary that was both intuitive and inconsistent with previous seasons. The plot takes a back seat to woke sjw politics once the second half of the season begins. I feel bad ripping on this show as i loved seasons 1 and two and even the first half of season 3. That being said the sheer amount of blunders committed here cant go unnoticed. I wont be renewing my dc subscription or tuning in for season 4

    One of the best shows I watched in a long time. It has a great understanding of the DC characters and still manages to use them in new and compelling ways.

    Not a bad season, did not live up to the first and second season really, many of the loose ends left from season 2 were barely mentioned and not tied up. Disappointing ending however, stunning visuals, good plot points throughout the season and well animated and well written fight scenes.

    Writing, plot, story, character building every aspect you name it was sloppy. Characters going out of characters all the time. Ot would have been better to have made a 2 hour movie on this plot but a whole damn season.... definitely no worth watching. The show gets worse with every second episode and every pther season ....

    I loved it but they didn't need to curse as much as they did the o two seasons worked around doing that and still being very mature other than that it was cool

    I was a huge fan of season 1 and 2. When a season 3 was finally done, I was excited. Then I watched it. With each episoide I became more and more disappointed. Everything that made the show great in the past was completely gone. Replaced by everything bad about SJW superhero shows. Hopefully no one has to see a seadon 4 for another 6 years.

    Justiça jovem é incrivel, sua trama não desaponta em nenhum momento, cada personagem é bem desenvolvido e tem oseu papel, os personagens iniciais são cada vez mais bem desenvolvidos e amadurecem cada episodio. Há alguns que te fazem pensar que é real. Nunca perdendo o tom de que são crianças, então sempre há uma piada.

    After an agonizing wait of six years, DC's greatest modern animated property returns with a bang all thanks to relentless fan support and the introduction of the DC Universe streaming platform. Young Justice Outsiders takes everything we love about the first 2 seasons and cranks it up to 11 with a more mature and darker narrative as well as plenty of fan service. Like previous seasons, there's plenty of powerful characterization. It's always a bit alarming when a plethora of new characters are introduced, but time and time again, the YJ team proves everything fits in the long run. The narrative feels much more complex with the introduction of Meta Trafficking and the stakes have a stronger balance of personal and global aspects. That concept creates a relatable, but an entertainingly exaggerated outlook on society, one that could happen if metahumans did exist. There are some questionable moments, however. With the inclusion of several new characters, the show sets up too many avenues to explore. It's unclear what the central plot of the next season will consist of. In addition, certain build-up scenes drag a tad bit where other scenes felt rushed. But because the execution and overarching narrative were well crafted, these issues can be overlooked. And with DC Universe taking an aim at a more mature audience, more graphic content is included. Majority of the blood and gore shown feels distasteful as it doesn't fit within the world of Young Justice, at least, not to that extent. Weisman, Bourassa, Vietti and the rest of the Young Justice team have once again outdone themselves with Outsiders. They clearly understand how deeply fans care for these characters and stories and have created a worthwhile follow up to the original Cartoon Network run. Sure, there are some missteps, but nothing too drastic to alter the core formula of the series. Young Justice is here to stay, and the future never looked brighter. YOUNG JUSTICE: OUTSIDERS- Heroic (93/100)

    Since the first episode of season 1 of Young Justice, this series has been the most thrilling, jaw-dropping, filled with top of the universe story, characters, acting, directing etc. and unlimited goodies. I really want this series to continue for ever, it is the best of best.
  • Aug 29, 2019
    With much darker themes, fresh characters, and consistent continuity with the past seasons, Young Justice: Outsiders exceeds the expectations of fans of Young Justice from the start. Even if it definitely looks a little intimidating due to their growing 'cast', with "wait, who is that? when did that happen again?" moments even for fans, the show should really be less all over the place. However, the character design and development is remarkable. The themes were more mature, but very thought-provoking. Definitely waiting for the work they'll put in season 4!!
