Superman’s execution is prepared by Lor- Zod, Conner and Dru. 

Nightwing is alive, unlike the previous episode implied, as he slowed his heartbeats using Batman’s technique. The nasty scene of everyone being dead with Bioship was created by Zatana and M’gaan using illusion and telepathy. Baby arrives to pick them all up. Megan is convinced reluctantly to use her psychic powers on Zod by Dick. General Zod orders to release his army by opening the portal to the Phantom Zone. M’gaan tortures Danny Chase’s spirit, but Saturn girl helps him kick M’gaan out of his mind. Conner remembers his past life through M’gaan and takes on Lor and Dru-Zod, joined by a healed Superman. 

General Zod is pushed into the Phantom Zone, and the Eye of Ekron saves Ursa. Lot escapes in his time sphere, but it has a pre-set destination: Mars.

Young Justice has not been officially renewed by HBO Max yet. However, the show garnered mostly positive reviews and remained one of the most popular animated shows in the world. Therefore, it is unlikely not to be renewed for another season as more stories are left to tell. The show was once canceled during its Cartoon Network days, and the show’s fanbase started a movement where they binged the show on Netflix. This played a part in its later renewal for HBO Max.

In the episode’s final scene, Vandal Savage imprisons all the trapped Kryptonians inside his Warworld base except one. That prisoner is later given to Darkseid and is revealed to be Kara-Zol-El, Superman’s cousin. Ursa Zod, the new Emerald Empress, flees to the planet Daxam to give birth to her son. All these conflicts could be the main plot point of Season 5. 

Young Justice Season 5 Expected Release Date

If Young Justice is renewed, fans could expect the release of the fifth season in late 2024, as season four took two years to complete.
