Warner Bros. Animated released the one-hour episode debut of the series in a world premiere screening during the show's panel session at New York Comic Con.[3] The official premiere of the one-hour episode was slated for November 11, 2011, airing on Cartoon Network. The November airing garnered an average of 1.9 million viewers among boys 9-14 and ages 2+. The episode grew across all targeted demos vs. its Young Justice lead-in, and continued to grow its kids 2-11 and boys 2-11 audience across the second half-hour. This ranked the one-hour presentation as Cartoon Network's most-watched program of the night.[4]

The official premiere of the series was broadcasted on March 3, 2012, as part of Cartoon Network's DC Nation block. The first season is 26 episodes long, and consists of two 13 episode-long story arcs.[2]



In early stages of production, the show was conceived as a "Bruce Timm-does-CG-project".[5] Phil Kent, chairman and CEO of Time Warner's Turner Networks unit, originally announced that Green Lantern: The Animated Series would be a part of Cartoon Network's original programming. A special preview of the show was shown at the 2010 New York Comic Con featuring test footage, character and story description, and art work.

Bruce Timm who produced the entire DC Animated Universe revealed at New York Comic Con that he would be producing the show. The series is the first television series by Bruce Timm to be rendered using CG. Timm was originally was reluctant to use CG instead of traditional animation.[6] By the time of 2010 New York Comic Con, a total of 26 episode had been ordered for the first season, thirteen had already been planned and five were already recorded. The producers have confirmed that it was requested that the character Sinestro not be used at the time they were developing the show, because at that time his destiny wasn't completely decided in how they wanted to play him in the future.


Giancarlo Volpe also stated that if the series was a success, other Lanterns like Guy Gardner, John Stewart and Kyle Rayner have a possibility of being be introduced.
