Is Boomerang Becoming Another Disney XD?

Boomerang is a subscription kids based channel operated by Warner Bros. Discovery. At the time, it served as a complimentary channel to Cartoon Network's preschool and family offering and since the existence of Cartoonito things haven't been going so well for the iconic brand.

In 2021, Warner Bros. Discovery unveiled some original productions for their brands and Boomerang wasn't mentioned in this list of developments as Cartoonito was hogging most of the spotlight with Cartoon Network's revamped offering.

Four years prior, The Walt Disney Company took the same path with Disney XD by cancelling most of their original productions while moving remaining shows to Disney Channel and Disney+ with the brand being used as a catch-up as carriage for the channel declines internationally.

There may not any immediate plans to close the family brand but there's indicators hinting to its demise. Take for instance, the load of existing content from Cartoon Network such as Looney Tunes Cartoons and Lamput while remaining shows are classified as Cartoonito.

Although these development aren't applicable to Africa (yet), Boomerang hasn't gotten any new programs aside from what's introduced by Cartoonito and I know some would be say Akissi and Legend Of Spark but that's considered Cartoonito elsewhere.

Cartoonito has been speculated to replace the channel for a while now and I'm not sure if this is gonna be the case now as there's been a lot of changes within Warner Bros. Discovery that has even led me to even believe Boomerang could close before any of this could even take affect.

With these cancellations of shows you just have to wonder if they'll be any left for for more than one channel.
