They also accuse the Mediatoon of laziness in publishing Code Lyoko’s episodes, without upgraded graphic quality or subilites for deafs people only to offer prequel in single episode. Foxtrox Fanatics tried to offer Mediatoon help and collaboration without getting a reply from corporation.

6 December 2021 – Spanish languaged part of fans society called on Twiiter as Code Lyoko REACT annoucment:

We've heard news from reliable sources, there's going to be something new from Code Lyoko. We live.

We asked for this message to be clarified. This is what we got in response:

We don't known exactly what it is, but we do know there will be something new and it will be official.

The news caused quite a stir among the fans, so on the afternoon of December 7 the Spaniards gave another message:

Many of you have started to speculate as to what this is going to be. We are not sure if it will be something as big as the new season or just a re-release on Blu-Ray discs. We can assure you that this is something new and official and that the news of it comes from sources directly on the Mediatoon, but we will not believe 100% until we see it. We must be prepared for any eventuality. On the other hand, we do not believe that this would be a new series of Code Lyoko: Evolution, because new actors would have to be selected, they are already adults.

According to information from Spain, the details are to be known in a few months.

9 January 2022 – On Cartoon Fantasy’s twitter account dealing pop culture, the following message appeared:

We are indeed working on a new production related to Code Lyoko, but this is not a new series as some would like. Release date: probably in 2022.

The production is to be carried out by the Cartoon Fantasy team, and Julien Lamassonne is to participate in it. A fragment of work on recording the new version of the opening was attached to the announcement.

11 January 2022 – Spaniards from Code Lyoko REACT released a new annoucment:

No, the new thing is not a song. No, we will not risk any contact that one of the admins (and there are 6 or 7 of us) have with Mediatoon just to meet someone's expectations. It's January and we can say that the new thing will come from Mediatoon and it won't be a song. At this point, one of the administrators knows and CANNOT say this because he would be risking a very good contract and an opportunity he doesn't want to miss.
We didn't deserve what the production company would do with the show.
