The wait is finally over.
After thirteen years since Genndy Tartakovsky’s Emmy Award-winning show ended its last episode, Adult Swim has released the full trailer of the fifth and final season of Samurai Jack and a brief glimpse into the final season as shown below:
From what we saw in the trailer, Phil LaMarr returns to reprise his role as Jack, the incredible animation style is back, and we can expect the series to be more dark and violent than the original series. In addition, Adult Swim released a synopsis for the upcoming season:
It’s been 50 years since we saw Samurai Jack, and time has not been kind to him. Aku has destroyed every time portal, and Jack has stopped aging, a side effect of time travel. It seems he is cursed to just roam the land for all eternity.
The final season of Samurai Jack will premiere on March 11, 2017, on Adult Swim’s Toonami programming block. Last week, Adult Swim also released a very brief teaser for the final season of Samurai Jack, and while it isn’t quite as exciting as this news, it’s still worth a look.
