Kids' WB! on Wednesday announced that Static Shock will occupy the 10:30 a.m. (9:30 a.m. PT) time period when its third season debuts on Saturday, Jan. 25.

The network's Saturday morning schedule beginning that day includes Yu-Gi-Oh! at 8 a.m., What's New Scooby Doo? at 8:30 a.m., Jackie Chan Adventures at 9 a.m., Ozzy & Drix at 9:30 a.m., Pokemon: Master Quest at 10 a.m., Static Shock at 10:30 a.m, Yu-Gi-Oh! at 11 a.m. and ?Mucha Lucha! at 11:30 a.m.

Static Shock's third season begins with the episode "Hard as Nails." In the episode, Allie Langford (a.k.a. Nails), a teenager at Virgil's school, goes to Gotham City in search of the veteran villains Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy to eliminate her recent problem - she is starting to turn into metal. Teaming up again with Batman, Static must expose Harley and Poison Ivy's nefarious plans so that Allie may get the real guidance she needs.

The Feb. 1 episode will be "Gear," in which Richie reveals his newly acquired identity.

Hip-hop musician Lil' Romeo raps the series' new main title song, co-written with his father Master P. In addition, he will guest-star as himself in an episode of Static Shock later this season, entitled "Lil' Romeo."

As previously reported, the season will also include the Justice League and a new character She-Bang.
