Lately, I've noticed a LOT of websites are spreading rumors about Steven Universe getting cancelled and it is seriously becoming very annoying. The people who write those articles obviously have no idea the show has been renewed for a fifth season. There's even one website that states that Rebecca is cancelling the show so she can work with Alex Hirsch on some other show. And how did that rumor start? Apparantly, Rebecca and Alex were standing next to each other or something. How insane can you get for starting a rumor like that? Somebody needs to put a stop to this, it is seriously getting on my nerves, as well as other fans'. But what do you guys think? I, for one, refuse to believe SU is getting cancelled after the official announcement of seasons 4 and 5 but I will admit the lack of episode titles after Three Gems and a Baby is a bit concerning.
The problem is that once a rumor is out there all this "news" sites latch onto it and just keep repeating it. Just wait until we have been on hiatus for a month and the articles will just keep repeating the same thing. I think most of the issue, and I have said this before, is that these sites use bloggers who think journalism is using Reddit or Youtube as sources. I like The Roundtable but they are just a group of people theory crafting not insiders with information.
The only real concern is the show's cancellation after season 5, which was originally just season 3. That's what they did to Uncle Grandpa and until SU is renewed for a sixth season we're not out of the woods.
