The synopsis does seem to allude to Amazo but where does it say it's a continuation? EDIT: "All-new season"? Idk, I'm skeptical until they confirm it on their Twitter or when the press release comes out.
To be honest, with Tucker and DeMatteis involved I speculated it might've been regarding the Tucker universe, but it explicitly mentions JLU.

Yeah, it was just worded oddly imo that I missed it on first glance and this order page was posted out of context without a PR statement issued. But yeah, seems to fit the naming convention. "The New Batman Adventures" and "Batman: The Adventures Continue" and "Justice League Unlimited" and "Justice League Infinity".

Amazo was one of those characters whose fate was left open ended after "Wake the Dead." Curious if this was a discarded idea, an idea they thought of for a potential season if they were renewed again, or something original.

Neat, it appears Beavers was a storyboard artist on "Patriot Act". And an interview from the 2010s that WF did with him.

EDIT: Here's an article about the JL series finally. Reunites the original 7, centered on the multiverse, 7 issues total, physical #1 releases July 6, 2nd part of synopsis "Meanwhile, the war for the throne of Apokolips arrives on Earth, and the true ruler will only be decided one way: Who can destroy the Justice League?", first cover by Francis Manapul with a card stock variant cover created by Scott Hepburn.

Also, WF coverage.

Well, here's hoping they play continuity cop better...

Cool to see them go back to basics with the DCAU Big 7, and with a big Apokolips story to boot :).

We'll see... but feels like Amazon finds the Source Wall and let's something out by accident that's very very dangerous. Apokolips? Eh, whoopty-doo. Kinda overused in recent animation, imo. The Apokolips civil war spilling onto Earth does makes sense given Kalibak is still being detained on the planet at the time of this story and he's still an important political pawn.

EDIT: Pages for BTAC II #1 chapter 1 (May 6) and #1 chapter 2 (May 20).
The Talon strikes at the Vreeland House, and Batman is nowhere in sight! Thankfully, Deadman's on the scene, but can he bring the smackdown on Talon with Veronica, or is it curtains for the Vreeland family?

You know, I'm a little surprised that James Tucker is doing this. He seemed uninterested and noncommittal when asked about a JLU continuation a while back. Perhaps seeing it as Bruce Timm's baby more than anything. Still, he has a great sense of story, so I'm glad he's tagging along.

I wonder if Timm was consulted about any of this or would he dismiss it if he wound up producing more JLU movies/episodes?

4/22: Hmm, Shayera was hanging out on her off-day hence no tracksuit? :p

Interesting, wonder if Big Barda and Mister Miracle are now members or it's a similar situation to "The Ties That Bind."

Always so cool to see Ted Kord, happy to see he's one of the new characters showing up in this comic. Hope he sticks around.

Looks like J'onn is still on leave and is in India now.

Yup, Amazo as some of us suspected. Far out setting.

Makes sense it's Granny, she was one of the leading forces in the civil war.

Beavers can definitely do the Timm style.

I tweeted Tucker about it and he said 'making of details coming eventually' so for now, he and DeMatteis are still on the gag order. I guess there will be a DC video interview or article coming soon within the next 3 weeks.

4/23: Logline for BTAC Season II #2 in July solicits, print issue set for July 6. Regular cover by Kris Anka and variant by Max Dubar. And the series itself is currently set for 7 issues.
Thanks to some magical help from Zatanna, Batman can now see Deadman. Joining forces, the Dark Knight and the death-defying specter hatch a plan to apprehend the treacherous Talon. But the mysterious assassin gets the upper hand and captures Hamilton Hill Jr.! Can Batman and Deadman track the regeneration formula components and find the sinister Court of Owls’ secret passageways, or will Gotham finally fall under the Court’s full control?!
