Samurai Jack | oprainfall

Toonami took to their Tumblr page this afternoon to announce that Samurai Jack will be getting a new season in 2016. The studio had this to say:

Adult Swim is excited to announce that JACK IS BACK. Creator and executive producer Genndy Tartakovsky continues the epic story of Samurai Jack with a new season of episodes that will premiere on Adult Swim’s Toonami block in 2016.

The new season is currently in production in Los Angeles at Cartoon Network Studios.

Samurai Jack first aired from 2001 to 2004 with 56 episodes. This exciting American-made anime-style cartoon tells the story of a boy-turned-samurai with a mission to defeat an evil demon, Aku. Before Jack could deliver the final blow he was sent into a time portal to an altered future. The series follows his adventures to defeat Aku and get back to the past.

Are you excited for the return of Samurai Jack? Let us know in the comments below!

    I can just hear the creator when the offer came out. “Once again, I’m free to tell the story as I did in days long past.” Seriously, I’ve waited 11 years for this.

    RIP Mako

    Really loved Samurai Jack when it was first on, so I’m really hyped for this.

    I just wonder if it’ll be the same without Mako’s over-the-top hammy acting. 🙁

    I loved this show when it was airing, and have re-watched it several times since. I just hope that the show doesn’t swerve toward being an adult show now that it’s going to be on Adult Swim. I don’t want a Samurai Jack with blood and guts.

    I have never squeed in my life. Until now.

    2016 is already looking like the best year in a long time (nostalgia talking and hitting me hard). Jack the legend is back baby!
