ThunderCats: Has the New TV Series Been Cancelled?

New ThunderCats canceled on Cartoon Network?Though there hasn’t been any official word, it looks like the new ThunderCats animated series has been cancelled.

A reboot of the 1980s ThunderCats TV show, the new series debuted on Cartoon Network last July with the first of 26 installments. The season was broken up into two parts and the finale aired this past Saturday. There’s been no word of plans for a second season.

What’s more, Cartoon Network announced their plans for the 2012-13 season and ThunderCats was noticeably absent from their list of returning series.

Matthew Mercer is the voice actor for Tygra. His girlfriend is actress Mirisha Ray and she believes that the show has been cancelled so she’s started a website to rally support.

While ThunderCats hasn’t been officially cancelled yet, the signs certainly don’t look positive. When/if we hear something definitive, we’ll be sure to let you know.

What do you think? Has ThunderCats been cancelled or will the show return for a second season? If it has ended, will you miss the series?

Its pretty sad that Thundercats got canceled but I believe I know what happens at the end , it says by one-shot Tygra and Lion-o share a heart wrenching brotherly bonding moment.

can’t believe it! I thought it a great remake of the 80’s animated series and in many ways better, my children have the new toy characters that were sold everywhere during the hype but now it’s a distant memory and it looks like that we won’t see a follow up series which is a huge shame and a missed opportunity… Please bring on a second series, there’s a little boy counting on it. Thank you

This was one of those rare times when a reboot was better than the original. It wasn’t perfect but you could tell a lot of care went into it’s production. It’s a shame they put it on at a strange timeslot given the demographic they were aiming for. If they were hoping to sell action figures I would’ve thought a saturday morning timeslot would have been the obvious choice. The original thundercats was a saturday morning cartoon and that seemed to sell enough action figures.

this was a great show and a good remake they probably cancelled it for the dumb reason of Lion-o’s catch phrase being somehow offensive i don’t get but not even Santa is allowed to say ho anymore.

It is sad that they canceled thunder cats I will miss it a lot.

It’s a sign of the times. This is the third classic 80s cartoon remake that got cancelled. First He-Man, then Voltron, now Thundercats.

I think this is telling us something. You can update them, make them darker, edgier, and more violent and have CGI animation. But they were still missing something the oldies had. Charm! Those old cartoons were classics for a reason. If you want to watch the good cartoons, just watch the old school shows. The sad reality is, that they just don’t make ‘em like they used to.

It’s sad to hear the thundercats are not coming back. Will there at least be a dvd release of the second season?


Angela February 16, 2014 at 12:03 am

This is ridiculous! I have been waiting for season 2 and I didn’t know that it was canceled. I was so happy when cartoon network was bringing thundercats back! I even told my kids that it used to b my favorite cartoon when I was a kid and they thought that it was really cool. So please bring them back. You guys have worse cartoons and you don’t cancel. Why would you canceled thundercats?
