I report this with a bit of a mixed feeling… MSN TV has posted episode descriptions for the final three episodes of G.I. Joe: Renegades, and while I love reading these episode descriptions, the fact that these are the final three episodes (barring any kind of miracle return after the G.I. Joe sequel).
Episode 24 “Going Underground” airs Saturday, July 9th, one week from tomorrow night:
“While investigating an earthquake, the Joes discover underground tunnels being constructed by Cobra.”
The episode 25, “Revelations: Part 1” airs one week later, July 16th, with the following description:
“Cobra works to finalize deployment of the MASS device; Scarlett holds the key to its use.”
And the final episode, number 26 “Revelations: Part 2” wraps up Season One of G.I. Joe: Renegades and what might serve to be the series finale. That episode airs July 23rd, and has the following description:
“The Joes infiltrate Cobra’s stronghold to stop them from utilizing the MASS device.”
That’s a wrap.
Regardless of what happens with the G.I. Joe film sequel and any potential following animated series, I can say without hesitation that G.I. Joe: Renegades was a great ride, and it’s been a whole lot of fun. A huge kudos to Stephen Davis, Jeff Kline, Marty Isenberg, Henry Gilroy, the late Clem Sauve, and all of the other fantastic writers, producers and designers who have breathed the life and soul into this series. I think it ended prematurely, but it still entertained over the past several months, and I greatly look forward to any potential return to this rich and fertile universe.
Thanks. You guys all deserved better. And also thanks to The Terror Drome for passing on this info.
