Let me be perfectly clear; this is an 8-minute behind-the-scenes featurette of the oh-my-god-I-can’t-believe-it’s-finally-happening season five of Samurai Jack. It includes no new footage, very little info, and only the briefest glimpses of what may be in store. Here’s why you should watch it anyway.
Nothing is known about the return of Samurai Jack. All fans have to go on is a six second trailer and a brief announcement that the show will be premiering on Adult Swim’s Toonami block sometime this year.
Oh my god. Oh my god. Genndy Tartakovsky’s iconic cartoon series Samurai Jack, which blended scifi and Japanese swordsman awesomeness, came to an end over a decade ago now. It’s lived on in the form of comics since, but at long last, Jack is coming back to television for a whole new season of adventures.
