I hear there's a petition going on right now to revive this excellent show on Netflix. Maybe there's still hope.

If anyone has some time to burn, Dan Norton (art director) gives a lot of details over what the plan was for the story in the second season.

@D.A.V.E. The Chima stuff was honestly really interesting to hear. Back when I was younger I never once realized the resemblance between the two. Pinching myself right now for that. But yeah it's a shame it got taken off the air because of that especially when you consider that Chima really wasn't a good show and how weak a majority of the characters were (well I did really enjoy one of them. But that was it.)
Either way for now I'm just going to sit in the corner with a bag of popcorn and let the salt commence...

@Soul-dragon I knew about the resemblance, but I had no idea it actually had a connection with Thundercats series.

@Kruner White What kind of world do we live in where we can't enjoy a good cartoon because of that? It's not fair I tell you.

TBH I actually love the 2011 Thundercats series more than the orginal, it sucks that CN gave it the axe. This series deserves a comeback!!

@andre34 tbh I wish we had more anime reboots with English VA's, this cast is just so stellar & it'd be awesome to see more of this sort of thing. It looks gorgeous too. I really think Hollywood undersells the capacity of Japanese animators; they really could do a lot more with a lot less money, if they were willing to embrace foreign artists more. IMO.

Problem is, the story would likely still be geared to & limited by Hollywood children's TV standards. No way in Hell would we get something as heavy as Berserk or Hellsing for, say, a DC/Marvel story, on TV. It's a real shame because there's plenty of comic/animated stuff both in & outside Hollywood that would benefit from this level of production quality & VO budget. IMO.

@huzaifa_ahmed on the bright side this series had some good voice talent for an 80s reboot, i can see why romano got brought back for voltron
said at 4:07 PM on Sun Oct 22 2017
@huzaifa_ahmed With the success of Samurai Jack, and the new upcoming season of Young Justice, I feel as if things are starting to change for the better. Action/Story-driven cartoons for adult will likely be a thing in the very near future!

Why is this trend of great shows getting canceled prematurely still happening?
said at 10:40 PM on Wed Sep 2 2015
@Lpfan120 "Great" shows aren't always profitable enough to justify sticking around, especially when they're expensive to make.

This and the 2003 TMNT is how a reboot should be done. Sorry HeMan, you may have wone the Death Battle but LionO got the better reboot(and might I add that unlike the Gteyskull Blade, the s2ord of om3ns wasnt changed or altered save for a minor facelift)
said at 11:50 AM on Sun Jun 21 2015
@LongLiveTheLionKing Agreed, though I wish some elements had been handled better, you know? Like the love triangle between Lion-O, Tygra, and Cheetara, since it just seemed so terrible how Cheetara flirted with Lion-O yet wasn't interested in him in the long haul. That kind of BS is bad story-writing if you ask me.

said at 7:03 AM on Fri Jul 31 2015
@BigBDawg yeah that Lion-o was that unfort with the ladies actually was a very depressing way to end the series. and I really hoped Cheetara would have learned that she stayed away from her path.
but other then that, this Reboot felt it was right.

I was never a thundecats fan, but this show is interesting. And idk if this is just me, but a lot of the cats hairstyles, Tygra and Wilykat namely, remind me of Hawkgirl's helmet

@AMT I hear ya. Watched the original on Toonami, forgot about it, and then remembered it after Robot Chicken made fun of it and then started watching/ling it when this came out.

I'm still waiting for a second season. And for the most part, the chances could be pretty high considering the positive reception the first season achieved. On the other hand, maybe the chances could also be pretty low, since Cartoon Network (change your name, please!) is airing nothing but Adventure Time, Regular Show (still good, in my opinion), Gumball, and that new Level Up crap. During the mornings though, viewers can watch The Flintstones, Jetsons, and Chowder... which are pretty sweet when it comes to reruns.

I would really like to see the fate of Grune, if anything. He got sucked into the Astral Plane in the season finale... needless to say, I also feel sorry for what happened to Panthro.

@Ninjaman15 You are aware that a second season has already been confirmed right?
said at 10:07 AM on Sat Feb 11 2012
@OptimusSolo I knew for a bit of a long time, actually. The only thing that wasn't announced was the release date so far... in which I'm not even aware of that.

By the way, what are your thoughts about the remake, overall? I'm just curious to ask this particular question...

@Ninjaman15 If you 'knew it for a long time' then I your previous message makes no sense since you are talking about 'the chances' of there being a season 2 lol.

This series is above average for sure. A lot depends on where it goes from here. This series is a lot like TF Prime where they both have a lot of potential but it depends if they take that potential and do something with it. Right now I would say this is not quite as good as the 2002 He-Man reboot or the GI Joe Renegades Reboot but with a second season it could pass those if done right.

This gave me hope that a remake/reboot of a classic 80's cartoon can be not only good but AWSOME.
I was really worried after watching Voltron Force DX
said at 12:57 PM on Sun Jul 31 2011
I have a feeling this remake might be a bit better than I thought. At first I was a bit skeptical on how this would've played out since it would be animated by one of the best people in Japan, Studio 4*C (can't make the 'degree' sign, so sorry), and it turn out to be another generic anime series... Only, ThunderCats. But then I remembered again that the original was based off of Japanese anime as well, thereby its crew did have a few Japanese locals on the forefront. After watching the first episode of this remake, the new ThunderCats will actually be something good for a change, and I hope to God there is continuity. Looking back at shows we used to watch as kids, that programming wasn't as entertaining as we thought... Then again, there weren't any big name VAs, high quality animation, or much of a story behind it, at least that's what I think. Overall, 2002 He-man, Voltron Force, or any other reboot/retelling needs to come speak with ThunderCats... And yes, that includes Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Don't take this personally.

@Ninjaman15 The fact that you say there was no 'big name' voice actors when you were a kid is absolutely ludicrous! Also, just because YOU are a fan of series that have continuity in their storylines does not mean all series that are non-continuity based are bad or full of poor writing it just means YOU prefer that style better. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with the 2002 He-Man reboot or the Clone Wars series.

Perhaps you should re-read my comment and take a little more time before responding next time. I was not bashing you or your opinions in anyway and I meant no offense by my previous comment.

I was simply trying to make 3 points:

#1 - There were tons of phenomenal voice actors in the 80s including; Jim Cummings, Rob Paulsen, Peter Cullen, Neil Ross, Frank Welker, Jack Angel, Alan Oppenheimer, Chris Latta, Jim Henson, Frank Oz, BJ Ward, Tress MacNeille, Kath Soucie, Ruth Buzzie, Dan Gilvezan, Pat Fraley, Michael Bell, Katie Leigh, Jennifer Darling, Susan Blu, Linda Gary, Nancy Cartwright, Russi Taylor just to name the ones that come right off the top of my head

#2: You made the comment 'hope to God there is continuity' and I was just saying even though that might be what you prefer that continuity is not a prerequisite for a show being good quality.

#3: I was simply saying that although you don't view the Clone Wars series of the 2002 He-Man reboot as 'high quality' reboots, there is nothing wrong with them in my opinion and they are highly regarded in the cartoon community as high quality series.

So, please refrain from making personal attacks as you did in the comment that I blocked. Also, please take into account that I am an Administrator of this site before you fly off the handle like that again and become disrespectful.
