Samurai Jack Is Returning to Cartoon Network for a New Season!

Jack is back!


Count this as one car on the revival train that we’re very happy to see: Samurai Jack is coming back to Cartoon Network with new episodes!

After its original final episode in 2004, Genndy Tartakovsky (Dexter’s LaboratoryStar Wars: Clone Wars) is finally bringing his beautifully animated time-traveling samurai tale back to our TV screens. Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim dropped the news:

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 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.

There’s also a tantalizingly brief animated trailer:

Otherwise, details are scarce, but this is one well we don’t mind going back to. Come on, 2016!
