Batman Caped Crusader animated show moves to Amazon

Matt Reeves, J.J. Abrams, and Bruce Timm’s Batman: Caped Crusader has been officially moved to Amazon, as confirmed by Variety.


The show has been greenlit for 2 seasons. Currently, on IMDB season one is listed for ten episodes.

Batman: Caped Crusader was one of the 6 animated projects that Warner Discovery axed back in August 2022. The show was headed by Bruce Timm, the original creator of Batman: The Animated Series and other animated DC and Warner shows, and produced by Matt Reeves and J.J. Abrams's Bad Robot production company.


The show was announced back on May 19, 2021, being touted as a spiritual successor to the beloved animated series, Bruce Timm said during DC Fandom 2021. Timm added that “the show is what he envisioned the original animated series to be without the television restrictions of the time and that this show would be more BTAS than BTAS.” He also described the aesthetic of the show as being timeless, set in a pulp-noir vision of Gotham City with modern enhancements. 


Matt Reeves, director of The Batman and the Planet of the Apes trilogy, said that “the show was more adult, and graphic than the original animated series. It will be delving into the broken psyche of Bruce Wayne and his rogue's gallery more.”


The show was originally scheduled to air on HBO Max in the fall of 2022 but was delayed by the WB Discovery merger. The show is rumored to have been rescheduled for a fall 2023 release. No confirmations have been made.
