Samurai Jack returns in 2017

Daaaaamn

One of my favorite cartoons

The day fans of “Samurai Jack” fans have long wished for has finally arrived.

Adult Swim announced this morning that creator Genndy Tartakovsky will return with a new season of the beloved animated series, set to air next year as part of the Toonami programming block. According to the cable channel, production is already under way at Cartoon Network Studios in Los Angeles.

Premiering in 2001, the acclaimed series follows a time-displaced samurai on a quest to defeating the shape-shifting demon Aku, who destroyed his father’s kingdom. Praised for its animation style and epic battle scenes, “Samurai Jack” aired for four seasons before being canceled in 2004 by Cartoon Network. During that time it earned four Emmy Awards.

Tartakovsky, who went on to create “Star Wars: Clone Wars” and direct “Hotel Transylvania” and its sequel, discussed a “Samurai Jack” movie for several years, announcing in 2012 that it had begun pre-production. However, the project never appeared to make any public progress.

Awesome. Definitely one of the best cartoons ever.

I would love it if the original seasons get a blu ray release to coincide with this.

Incredible. We watched this during the original run, but I'd still like to do a rewatch on DVD before this starts. I think my son will really enjoy this.

Re: Samurai Jack returns in 2016

Looks like it's finally happening March 11, 2017!

http://www.darkhorizons.com/samurai-jack-returns-march-11th/

Cartoon Network has announced a March 11th premiere date for the all-new fifth season of Genndy Tartakovsky’s cult-fave animated series “Samurai Jack”.

The original “Samurai Jack” series ran from 2001 to 2004 with a total of 52 episodes. The story followed a samurai warrior flung into the distant future and is on a singular quest to return to his own time and defeat the tyrannical demon Aku.

Tartakovsky will be returning for the new episodes which will wrap-up Jack’s story and take on the form of one episodic story set years after the fourth season finale.

I'm going to miss the late Mako's voice for Aku.
