Anyway, we will keep you updated about any new information that comes related to the upcoming speculated sequel of Batman: The Animated Series and all the DC Projects, so stay tuned to Otakukart News.

HBO Max recently added the episodes of Batman, the animated series to its catalog and after the reboot of Gossip Girl or that of Sex & The City, Warner still seems to be banking on nostalgia and old television classics, sincea Batman sequel, the animated series has been in development for a while.

Bernardin was the one to initiate the discussion by bringing up a rumor that HBO Max is looking to make a sequel to Batman: The Animated Series.

"I am not involved, but I have heard the same and learned it from very reliable people".

For many, Batman: The Animated Series was the biggest animated show of all-time with an entire generation growing up on the film noir-infused series; Given that the show only lasted for two seasons (consisting of 85 episodes), its ongoing influence is all the more impressive.

It's not like, oh we gotta explain why everyone's older, it's f***ing animation man so you can go right back to those awesome f***ing stories. You can't f**k up the legacy, that's for damn sure. You can't f-k it up, there's no reason not to do it, as long as you've got the key creative components, as long as Bruce Timm is involved, wants to be there.

The three-part documentary (combined into one single presentation above) was first available on the Blu-ray release of Batman: The Animated Series. But what came out of their collaboration was "Batman: The Animated Series", an award-winning new chapter in the story of the Caped Crusader.
