Stylish Trailer For Samurai Jack Season 5 Resurrects The Time-Traveling Warrior Of Old

6 February 2017 1:49 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though it isn’t mentioned in the same breath as, say, Joss Whedon’s Firefly, the fact that Samurai Jack was pulled off Cartoon Network’s slate in 2004 before delivering a fitting conclusion to Jack’s saga is often cited as one of the biggest injustices in television.

In those intervening years, legendary animator and series director Genndy Tartakovsky consistently flirted with the possibility of revisiting the time-travelling warrior of old and now, thanks to an alliance between Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, Jack is finally – finally! – back, and it seems the years have not been kind to Tartakovsky’s greatest creation. Pegged for a premiere on March 11th, the fifth and final season of Samurai Jack takes place some 50 years after the events of season four. Haunted by a malevolent demon known as Aku, Jack finds himself trapped in a strange, mind-bending techno-dystopia, doomed to roam the land for all eternity on his lonesome. »

Samurai Jack Season 5 Slices And Dices Its Way Onto Adult Swim In March

23 January 2017 2:00 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Promising a “darker, more theatrical” adventure, Adult Swim has officially slated the fifth season of Samurai Jack for premiere on Saturday, March 11th.

Much to the delight of series creator Genndy Tartakovsky, the announcement was made shortly after a recent promo for Adult Swim’s upcoming slate of content. Tartakovsky, who first teased Jack’s return to the airwaves back in 2015, has spent much of the intervening years fielding questions from fans regarding Cartoon Network’s revival. That interest stems from the director’s attempts at engineering a feature-length movie based on the Samurai Jack universe, but those valiant efforts ultimately came up short. Instead, Genndy Tartakovsky doubled down on getting Jack back onto the small screen, and the result is a 10-episode fifth season that’s set to take place some 50 years after the finale of Samurai Jack season 4.

The premiere of the new season of Samurai Jack has finally been revealed. »
