No they will not.
The last action cartoon to get a run was Korra.

We're getting new Samurai Jack.

Maybe in another decade Genndy will somehow get us another season of Titan.

>>79764286
I hope not.

>>79764286
What you should be asking is why action cartoons for the most part became bland, boring, and a creative wasteland

There was no mass execution of action cartoons, action cartoons got boring so people don't want them as much

Besides...tons of them are still on the air even if they're re runs and there are a couple currently running, I don't see this massive lack of action toons that people always talk about now that I'm thinking about it, you're probably just thinking about one or two shows that you specifically watched, not the genre as a whole

Do japanese cartoons count?
>>
>>79764286
no
>>
>>79764313
Symbiotic Titan was written off as a financial failure for tax purposes. It's no longer aloud to be played on tv
>>
>>79764415
No. We're talking about western animation.
>>
>>79764396
There are like three on Disney XD plus TMNT on Nick, and arguably Steven Universe and Adventure Time "count" as action cartoons even if they use more stylized designs and are more comic in tone.

I've honestly given up at this point
>mfw I can't stand watching CN, Disney or Nick anymore
Guess I'm just getting older.

If, however, I somehow became some sort of millionaire, I'd make the most awe inspiring action cartoon ever. That'd be my mission in life.
>>
No, because males are no longer the target audience.

>inb4 banned
>>
>>79764810
Have you tried watching all the really old ones? Like, Filmation stuff and the weird shit that got put out in the 90's?
>>
>>79764742
Yeah, XD has all the Marvel shows...Nick has TMNT, CN has Transformers RID and do they still air any of the Batman shit? Last time I watched CN they were still airing some Batman show, Discovery Family airs Transformers Prime still as well as reruns of G1 and G.I Joe

I don't know if I'd call SU and AT "action" shows straight up, they do have action in them but I think to classify as an action cartoon action needs to be the primary element of a show, not just one of many

I don't know what people are complaining about desu, back in the day CN played pretty much all comedy shows aside from Toonami, which was only anime, not cartoons
>>
>>79764286
Even SU fans won't claim it's an action show because even they're not that retarded, anon.
>>
>>79764810
Why not just watch cartoons from your neighbors to the West? That's what I got back into recently.
>>
>>79764286
Kids have lower attention spans these days and action shows usually need more of a plot and a full 30 minute episode which CN doesn't like. It's probably not ever gonna happen.
>>
action shows never left. You just outgrew them because you don't follow toys anymore. Fuck, look at /co/ right now, Miraculous, powerpuff girls, star wars, HTTYD, they are all action shows. Ben 10 is getting a reboot too.
>>
>>79764286
>Clone Wars
>Korra
>Star Wars Rebels
>Several versions of Transformers
>Green Lantern
>GI Joe Renegades
>Dreamworks Dragons
>Kung Fu Panda
>TMNT

There have been tons of action cartoons in the last decade, and they're generally higher quality than most of the ones I liked when I was a kid.
>>
>>79765868
Korra is the only original new creation albeit a spinoff.

And it sucks ass
>>
>>79765897
What does being original have to do with something being an action cartoon

Most of the ones in the 90s were adaptions of other media as well
>>
>>79765897
those are original creations. Things don't have to be 100 original or New IP's to be creative or original.

there was also Ben 10 which is making a come back, and who knows, the new PPG will probably be too.
>>
>>79765897
>original new creation
The fuck does that have to do with anything?
>KFP
>DreamWorks Dragons
>not new
????????
>>
>>79764286
No.

We have too much self-loathing fans who call every single one of them Dragonball Z or DBZ like whenever there's a fight.

As if it is so bad to have as much action as the most popular action cartoon internationally.

Only things like Star Wars or Transformers get away with it, because they're older IPs
>>
>>79764286
Jesus your writing paired with the picture makes you out to be a whiny cunt. Get over it. Steven Universe is pretty good, and while not necessarily action based hating it due to the target audience is lame. Fuck off you child.

>>
>>79765995
The worst Transformers cartoon probably still has about ten times the character development DBZ has

People don't hate DBZ because it has action, they hate it because action is the only thing it has, and it isn't even well done action, it's absolutely juvenile in every way and the fights are entertaining to only ADHD riddled children
>>
>>79764286
Just to spite you, I hope they don't. Besides, I'm satisfied with animu and avatar anyway.

I hope action cartoons never make a comeback and every cartoon except for SU disappears forever.
>>
When I was a kid I got to watch bad ass action like street sharks and biker mice from mars, not a fat kid and some lessons crying about insecurities.
>>
>>79767014
You do realize, while steven is a fat kid, that both the shows you named are utter trash, right? You even had pleb taste as a kid, you could have at least named a quality show like Swat Kats or Beast Wars

I can not bring myself to feel bad about Sym-Bionic Titan, I'm always down for Genndy's brand of action, but the plot was such a generic slog and the anime tropes were cranked to 11, just couldn't get into it, even though I really wanted to because I knew if it failed it would spell doom for this type of show for the foreseeable future.

I fucking hated the Sasuke kid.

You're all grown man, cartoons aren't for you anymore.

Besides just watch anime.

Have faith, Anon. Kids are a violent lot, and they'll get tired of purely comedy and crave something new and different, that being action. All in due time.

Nah, he has severe hyphema in both eyes, one from when Murdoc crashed his car into the store he worked to rob it, slamming the bumper in his face and the other from when he was comatose from the previous injury and flew out the window while Murdoc did burnout donuts to impress women... Murdoc was taking care of him as part of his community service for robbing the store.

Gorillaz has needlessly detailed lore.

I never liked action cartoons. I honesty just prefer comedy cause it holds my attention far better than action sequences. I can appreciate a good fight scene and all but still.
