Toonami Announces Marathon Send-Off For Final “Beware The Batman” Episodes
In a last-minute schedule change, the Toonami programming block on Adult Swim will be airing the final seven episodes of Beware The Batman this Saturday, September 27th, 2014 starting at 2:30am (ET/PT) and running until 6:00am (ET/PT). According to representatives from Toonami, the programmers behind the block were informed early Monday, today, that Beware the Batman is being financially written off by Cartoon Network as of the end of the month. So, the programmers behind the fan-friendly Toonami programming block have decided to air all the remaining episodes before the show is no longer available for network broadcast. This comes less than a week after Adult Swim, the counterpart network for Cartoon Network, announced the Beware the Batman would be moving to an earlier timeslot.
Representatives are calling this event “one last Bat-blowout” for fans of the acclaimed, under-rated CG animated series. The show will not be part of the Toonami programming block starting October 4th, 2014. Continue below for an episode rundown of the special marathon.
