Kids’ WB is bringing back animated superhero series “Static Shock” for a fourth season.

Net has ordered 13 more episodes from Warner Bros. Animation.

Based on the Milestone/DC Comic, show revolves around African American teen Virgil who lives a double life as superhero Static. Since its fall 2000 launch, show has settled into the No. 2 spot in boys 6-11 and earned Emmy and Humanitas nominations for social responsibility.

“It’s something we can hold up as a benchmark for all other series,” said John Hardman, senior VP of Kids’ WB programming.

“The show has tackled a variety of interesting issues,” said Sander Schwartz, prexy of Warner Bros. Animation. “It takes on so much, and in a way that isn’t preachy.”

New segs will bow on the Saturday ayem sked in January. With a total of 52 episodes, show will also be stripped six days a week beginning in January.
