The show ran for three seasons (Season 3 has added the subtitle, Mission: Earth). A possible sequel series, Atomic Betty Redux, was announced, although no infomation has been given. References to the sequel series were removed from Atomic Cartoons' official web site afterwards.
An upcoming 2016 revival of the pre-teen format show is about to come up with new changes being given, and re-runs of the show will return to Canada's Teletoon channel, Hub Network in the United States, CITV in the United Kingdom, and Cartoon Network in a couple parts of the world around 2015 and 2016 respectively.
Betty is a typical adolescent who enjoys school, science-fiction movies and singing in her band, living in Moose Jaw Heights (a suburb of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan). Unknown to most of her friends and family, however, she is also a Galactic Guardian, dedicated to interstellar peackeeping and law enforcement. As Atomic Betty, assisted by her pilot Sparky, and a robot named X-5, she confronts the evil overlord Maximus I.Q. and other intergalactic supervillains. Despite being rather unassuming on Earth, Atomic Betty is a superstar throughout the galaxy and even has her own fan club of loyal followers.
In each episode, a crisis occurs somewhere in the galaxy, usually while Betty enjoys some activity with her friends. Invariably, her bracelet begins keeping ,and she runs off alone to save the galaxy. Accompanied by her crew, Betty manages to defeat the villains before returning home (and explaining her absence).
ProductionAtomic Cartoons writes and produces the animation for the series using Adobe Flash software, Tele Images Kids produces animation and voice direction for the French language version of the series, and Breakthrough Films & Television handles worldwide distribution outside of Canada (except Spain, Portugal & Andorra).

An upcoming 2016 revival of the pre-teen format show with an additional 104 full half-hour shows in 4 seasons are being produced, and will have new changes being given (including Betty finally appearing in her more-tomboyish normal look, wearing her new usual outfit).
