‘Adventure Time’ Is Slowly Going Off the Air, And Everyone’s Moving On

‘Adventure Time’ Is Slowly Going Off the Air, And Everyone’s Moving On
Adventure Time” has a long way to go, but in many ways, it already ended. In early February 2017, just a few months after Cartoon Network notified the team behind its most surprising breakout hit that the show was canceled, the cast finished their last round of voice work. The final episodes were written, and the saga of Finn and Jake in the magical, post-apocalyptic Land of Ooo came to a close as the cast and crew scattered to new projects. The fruits of their labor will gradually unfurl on Cartoon Network until 2018 — although the timing remains uncertain. Fans must wait for the slow march to the finale, but the creative team is moving on.

“It was bittersweet,” said head writer Kent Osborne, recalling the last day of recording. “A lot of shows don’t last this long, but this felt different because it was just so popular.”

Animated Castlevania Series Possibly in Development

It's very likely that an animated series based on Castlevania is heading to television thanks to the efforts of one of animation's biggest names. Fred Seibert (Fairly OddParents and producer for Adventure Time) tells IndieWire he's working on a series based on "one of the most popular games of the past 30 years". 

That's a pretty broad list until you realize that Frederator has the animation rights to Castlevania, and then you can stop racking your brain. The question is, though, can Seibert and his team pull off a series similar in tone to the game. There are a couple of things to consider...

Sure Fairly OddParents was a goofy series, but Adventure Time took some dark turns in its later stages and actually had a pretty good lore without making it too scary for kids. 

On the flip side, I would say most of Adventure Time's direction and tone

'Archer' is coming to an end (Phrasing!)
Adam Reed has just introduced us to the danger zone - the last seasons of FX's Archer. I swear to god I had something for this. Back in June we found out Archer, which features the voice talents of H. Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Judy Greer, Chris Parnell, Jessica Walter, Amber Nash, and Lucky Yates, had been renewed for three more seasons. Yay! But we've just found out those seasons will be its last. Boo! Executive producer/writer Adam Reed guested on the Modern School of Film’s Murmur podcast and made it official: The plan is to end Archer after Season 10. I don’t know that anybody has talked about that, but that is definitely my plan – to do 8, 9, and 10, and they’re gonna be each shorter seasons of just eight episodes – and then wind it up. … I was gonna end it after 8, but then I had sort of

‘Adventure Time’ Is Ending, But Its Legacy Is Secure

‘Adventure Time’ Is Ending, But Its Legacy Is Secure
There has never been a show quite like “Adventure Time,” which can be silly, wise and utterly mesmerizing within the confines of a few unpredictable minutes. The news that it will end its run in 2018, after eight years and nine seasons, may come as a shock to anyone invested in its unique pleasures. “Adventure Time” wasn’t just a well-honed animated program with equal appeal to viewers of all ages; that zany attitude delivered warm tidbits of life advice and an emotional purity with the concision of great folk music, and the same lasting power. It was the kind of perfectly conceived formula that suggested immortality. Even with the end in sight, its legacy is secure.

Adventure Time to end in 2018

Kayti Burt Sep 29, 2016

Adventure Time can't last forever... apparently. Pendleton Ward's anarchic cartoon will close its doors in 2018 after season 9...

All good things must eventually come to an end. If the news that Adventure Time will wrap up its whimsical, affecting, world-building run in 2018 isn't proof of that, then I don't know what is. Adventure Time will end with its ninth season, currently in production.

Of course, it's not time to start the water works yet. In its official announcement (via Entertainment Weekly), Cartoon Network assured fans that we still have "142 half-hours of content" (I just did the maths — that translates to 71 hours) left in our Adventure Time adventure following the lives of Jake the Dog and Finn the Human. This will include new episodes, miniseries, specials, and "more." There will never be enough! (But that's still pretty good.)
