G.I. Joe: Renegades is an animated TV series, that premiered on November 26, 2010, on Hub Network, in the United States and January 9, 2011, on Teletoon, in Canada. The series aired on Fridays at 6:00pm Eastern/5:00pm Central, on Hub Network, and Sundays at 12:00pm Eastern/11:00am Central, on Teletoon.

Due to a later-than-intended series premiere, early episodes of Renegades aired out of their planned order on Hub Network, in order to facilitate the broadcast of the Christmas-themed "Homecoming" two-parter in time for the holidays.[1] Canadian network Teletoon has adhered to the correct story order, as will the forthcoming DVD and Blu-ray release of the series. Accordingly, the list below reflects this correct viewing order.
