TV show description:
Son of legendary car driver Speed Racer, Speed Jr. (voiced by Kurt Colak) knows a thing or two about how to race cars. But in this animated series, joining the prestigious Racing Academy isn’t a quick start.

Helping him with the transition are his friends Lucy (Sahra Mellese) and Connor (Carter Jackson), as well as headmaster and uncle Spritle (Peter Fernandez). But not everyone is very fond of the new kid. The school’s best racer and most popular guy, X (Robbie Sublett), doesn’t like his turf being stepped on, nor does Annalise (Michal Friedman), X’s number one girl and the school’s number two racer.

In order to race at the academy, Speed needs wheels and, with the help of mechanically gifted Conor, they discover and restore Speed Racer’s legendary car Mach 5. When Annalise’s father, Zile Zazic (Dave Skigen), discovers what Speed is driving, he demands his daughter demolish it. Zile carries a personal grudge toward Speed and secretly detests him.

But Speed’s enemies are even closer to him than he could imagine, especially X, whose true identity is a real surprise.

I think it should be renewed. Although a lot of reviews were bad, I actually did enjoy it. Plus, I really CAN’T STAND cliffhangers. Is there ANY chance at all that this show might be renewed??

It should be renewed because there were alot of unanswered parts like V.I.C. Also spritles voice in season two kinda sucked.

There are more cliff hangers like how:
*Dickie Ranford might want revenge on Speed Racer Jr. for making him lose his company
*What ever became of Racer X
*Why is Analise in the episode Gotcha when Zile’s girlfriend took her with her

It should be renewed and keep going with it because it’s my favorite cartoon and I think you could do more than 2 seasons.

I really think that they should bring Speed Racer back. Why? Because they left so many cliff-hangers. For example what ever happened to V.I.C. Also what ever became of the Iron Monger aka. Zile Zazic. Also what ever became of the members of the commitee.
