NEWS: Rumoured Renegades Return

We've heard a rumour - and at the moment it is just that, a rumour - that the Hub's animated GI Joe show, GI Joe: Renegades, may be returning.

A Real American Hero brought us the news last night:

Great news Renegades fans! We've received word from a trusted source that a follow-up to the Hub's G.I. Joe: Renegades animated series is in the works. While we can't confirm if the season/series is in preliminary discussions or in development, we can verify aspirations to establish the new season/series as a continuation to the first season of Renegades and the plan to continue using Clément Sauvé's animation style. Despite some reports that Renegades underperformed, our source says Renegades actually did quite well.

Given the buzz the upcoming GI Joe: Retaliation movie has generated, it's certainly plausible that Hasbro may be eyeing a new GI Joe cartoon. However, I'm more inclined to believe that any new show will be set in the movie's universe, rather than continuing the Renegades series. After all, the general public's current perception of Roadblock is that he's The Rock kicking Ninja butt. To present him as anything but that would be a big mistake.

And before you get too excited, keep in mind that this is still just a rumour about the hope of producing a new show. Although the cast and crew may be keen to continue, the final decision rests with Hasbro and The Hub, who have made no such comment about the show's return.


  1. I hope so i really enjoyed watching it.

    1. I'm not sure a Renegades cartoon is what we need right now though. A Retaliation one makes more sense to me.

  2. I dont want a Renegades cartoon, I want more Resolute cartoons! Resolute actually got it right, please bring that show back on a regular basis!
