Nerdist is reporting that Cartoon Network has indeed cancelled its reboot of the ‘Thundercats’. More details after the jump!
The adventure-based series managed to get two seasons under its belt before the axe fell; The adventures of Lion-O and company was not on Cartoon Network’s list of returning shows in a recent press announcement. The show played closer in tone to Avatar: The Last Airbender than the campiness of the original, which was a point of contention for many diehard fans.
Well, I’m not really surprised either. I was a die-hard fan of the original (Mumm-ra is still my dude) and quite frankly, I was out after the first episode. I mean, it was cool but it was missing that fire that made the original so good. Campy or not. I think the ‘Thundercats’ have a good shot at making it one day, it will take some good writers and some open minds. We simply can’t expect to have a movie without some changes, unfortunately.
Are you sad to see the ‘Thundercats’ go? Should someone else reboot it?
