Villainous is cancelled

I have talked with people from CN south america, it's done for.

>Warner didn't like how season 1 was handled.
>Wanted to give them another chance as was by default the most popular latino CN original.
>Mergings happened, animation in general cut down.
>Very ignored when they mention Latin America in their social media.
>They only greenlit books as part of the rights are still with the mexican production company, but they can't do animation anymore.

Pretty much that. Believe me or not, but it checks out as it has been over 4 years since season 1 premiered.

    Why would CN be interested in a show about a successful villain leading his business in dealing against superheroes? That is too dark for kids, so I understand why CN cancelled this show, Kids prefer rooting for heroes.

      are you an uptight christian mom or something? kids love rooting for the villains if they’re compelling enough. even disney’s done that role reversal before.

      Are you asking genuinely or shitposting? Billy and Mandy was massive on the channel, and I'd hardly call the main characters good or heroic.

      this, references to other cartoons were always present in cartoon network but not to this degree where the cartoon is entirely replaced by member berries (unless it's MAD, robot chicken or some other parody show)

      That and making Black Hat a total villain sue.

      I wouldn't have a problem with him if he either lost a few times, was exaggerating his power level to some degree, or had more interesting things besides "LOOK AT HOW POWERFUL I AM GUYS".

      Also, Doctor Flugg is lamer than Doctor Frogg from L.O.S.E.

      Hell, here's a quick idea for an episode they could have done.

      >Black Hat is informed by Dr. Flugg that his PR is going down because of his henchmen ruining his reputation
      >Dr. Flugg realizes his error, but he, 505, and Demencia are fired anyway
      >Black Hat hires newer badder henchmen, but they're too good at their job that they start leaving Black Hat utterly bored.
      >Dr. Flugg and the other two henchmen try all sorts of wacky attempts to find other jobs only to fail them all
      > Not sure how, but they get hired back by Black Hat and the hypercompetent henchmen either frick off or die
      >Black Hat doesn't get all sappy, but he is at least pleased with himself that his business won't be boring anymore.

        IIRC the ARG for the show indicated that Black Hat would have a bunch of lore that eventually would’ve gotten touched on but yeah I agree otherwise
        Also I can’t believe it took me this long to realize that the acronym for that show formed L.O.S.E.

            To sum up, Blackhat is actually a demonic entity that looks for a vessel who puts on a hat and becomes him.
            He does this from time to time over centuries.

        Man I just got reminded of that time one of the show's writers had a complete meltdown because O.K.K.O implied the protagonist beat up Black Hat once. That was hilarious.

            I can think of a couple of cartoons that took 2-3 years maybe more to air their episodes
            Not outright cancelled but abandoned, Nickelodeon used to do that a lot, Ginger only aired its final season as intended in Latinoamerica

    Villainous has always had a plodding development pace. They put out a video last year when it went up on American HBO Max some 2 or 3 years after it premiered on LatAm HBO Max.

      They should move it to the Adult Swim LatAm channel, it is the only animation channel owned by WB/Discovery LatAm which doesn't censor anything they air, for example they aired Dragon Ball Z and Saint Seiya uncensored even the scenes where Master Roshi molested some of the girls and they didn't censor shi dirty magazines with naked girls on it either, they even moved Fionna & Cake to Adult Swim LatAm after they found it to be "too adult" for regular CN, honestly moving Villanos to Adult Swim LatAm would be the best thign they could do so they won't have to hold back the darker stuff

      Honestly I just never cared for it. I wanted to support it because it's a Mexican production and God knows we need to raise the bar when it comes to animation, but this always came off to me as tumblrcore, especially the main character looking like an Onceler Alternate Universe OC.
