When Batman Beyond debuted on Kids’ WB in 1999, it shattered expectations for what a sequel series to the classic, critically acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series would be like. A dark, weird cyberpunk continuation to the landmark animated noir series, Batman Beyond became a beloved classic in its own right that was both a radical departure from the storied history of the Caped Crusader while feeling like a loving homage.

“While we wanted to keep the familiar elements…we wanted [Batman Beyond] to feel fresh,” co-creator Bruce Timm said at the show’s San Diego Comic-Con panel on Thursday. But it’s been 20 years since Batman Beyond first premiered, and the series doesn’t feel quite as fresh as it used to. However, that will soon be remedied with the release of a long-anticipated remastered Blu-ray complete series set arriving this October. How…schway.

“We have a story to tell you,” panel moderator Gary Miereanu told the audience shortly before announcing the limited edition box set, which will include the entire series alongside the beloved film The Return of the Joker. “[Terry McGinnis voice actor] Will Friedle was in Italy for a shoot, but as soon as he heard that we were in Hall H, he cut his schedule short to be here.
