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. It was announced on July 20, 2019 during the DC Universe panel at San Diego Comic-Con.[3][4]

On October 16, 2021 the first two episodes were made available as a special surprise from DC FanDome. Greg Weisman later reported that starting October 21, one episode would come out weekly every Thursday until December 30 and the remaining 13 episodes would drop weekly in Spring, 2022.[5]

History

Production

As of the time of the announcement, the season was already in production and the showrunners stated that it would focus on the core season one characters that fans already know and love.[6]

By October 2019, voice recording was already underway[7] and was completed by July 1, 2020.[8] The season was finalized on December 10, 2021[9] making up over two years, four months and 20 days to complete all 26 episodes.

COVID-19 pandemic

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] Greg Weisman described the process at length:

The first half - or nearly half - of the season was done the way we always have, with group recordings predominantly, while picking up the occasional actor at a different time, based on availability.

About halfway through the season, we temporarily stopped recording because of the pandemic.

So in order to keep our board artists supplied with vocal tracks and working (from home), we began recording scratch tracks, using myself, Brandon, voice director Jamie Thomason, Talent coordinator Laura Lopez, editor Cris Mertens, and my wife and kids.

Then we began recording actors individually from home. Some of these actors have fantastic home studio set-ups. Others, well... not so much. We weren't video-conferencing with them, but we were audio-conferencing.

Then we switched from BangZoom Studios for our records to Atlas Oceanic Picture & Sound, which had a booth with a door that opened right into their parking lot. That way an actor could drive up and stay in their car until called for. Then they could walk right into the studio without any contact with any other human being. The engineer was in the control room, and the rest of us - including Jamie - were all listening in from our homes. Then when that actor was done, the booth would be sanitized before the next actor entered. Some of our performers still worked from home, but about half came to Atlas. It was always the choice of the actor.
