Although The Batman may have come to an end, fans of the Dark Knight won't have to wait too long before Batman returns to the television. World's Finest Online reports that Batman: The Brave and the Bold will begin airing on Cartoon Network in March 2009. The new series, which takes it's name from a DC Comic title, will pair Batman with other heroes drawn from the pages of DC Comics.

There will be at least 26 episodes of Batman: The Brave and the Bold. The show will feature a new animation style.

Cartoon Network provided the following description for the new series:

Batman isn't going at it alone this time! From Warner Bros. Animation comes the latest interpretation of the Batman franchise. Our caped crusader is teamed up with heroes from across the DC Universe, delivering nonstop action and adventures with a touch of comic relief. Blue Beetle, Green Arrow, Aquaman and countless others will get a chance to uphold justice alongside Batman. Though still based in Gotham, Batman will frequently find himself outside city limits, facing situations that are both unfamiliar and exhilarating. With formidable foes around every corner, Batman will still rely on his stealth, resourcefulness and limitless supply of cool gadgets to bring justice home.

Voice recording is presently underway. From the sounds of things, this may be the most kid-friendly Batman cartoon in quite awhile - which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
