Young Justice: Phantoms is the title of the fourth season of Young Justice, preceded by Young Justice: Outsiders, and it will be comprised of 26 episodes. Young Justice: Phantoms was announced on July 20, 2019 during the DC Universe panel at San Diego Comic-Con.[3][4]

As of the time of the announcement, the season was in production and the showrunners stated that it will focus on a smaller group of core characters. Later, Brandon Vietti revealed that they will be doubling down on the core season one characters that fans already know and love.[5]

On August 25, Christopher Jones, the illustrator for the Young Justice comics, announced that he had been hired as Storyboard Revisionist.[6]

On September 5, Greg Weisman said on DC Daily that season four would have 26 episodes, and that there would also be another time jump.[2]

By October 2019, voice recording was already underway[7] and storyboarding commenced two months later.[8][9]

On September 12, 2020, Weisman stated in a Q&A session during DC FanDome that their team has been working from home on season four. Pre-production was still underway despite the COVID-19 pandemic, but voice recording was being done individually by voice actors rather than in group sessions.[10]

By November 23, all 26 scripts were finished and 22 episodes were fully recorded.[11]

On March 25, 2021, Weisman announced that nine episodes were finished, five were in post-production and twelve were being animated overseas. Furthermore, pre-production was mostly done.[12]

By July 1, all 26 episodes had been fully recorded, thirteen were ready for release, seven more were in post-production and the last six were being animated. Pre-production was also virtually complete.[13] The entire season is being animated by Studio Mir.[14]
