Batman: Caped Crusader moves to Amazon with a two-season order
Previously developed for HBO Max, Batman: Caped Crusader has found a new home at Amazon. The animated series from J.J. Abrams, Matt Reeves, and Bruce Timm has been given a two season order.
The show was put on hold by Warner Bros. Discovery in August, about a year after it was ordered straight to series. At that time, they stated it was looking for a new home. After a series of cost cutting, Warner Bros. Discovery has pivoted in recent months selling projects to “rival” streaming services.
Batman: Caped Crusader was said to be a follow up in spirit to the classic 1990s Batman: The Animated Series which Timm worked on. Ed Brubaker was announced Timm’s right hand for the 10-episode first season. It was spotlighted at the 2021 DC Fandome which featured some of the individuals behind it discussing what we can expect.
The series joins other high profile animated series at Amazon including Invincible, The Legend of Vox Machina, and The Boys Presents: Diabolical.
