Samurai Jack Announces Premiere Date for Season Five!

We learned that Samurai Jack was returning to Adult Swim back in 2015, but now we finally have a premiere date! The hapless time-traveling samurai will slash his way into a new season on March 11th at 11:30 pm.

For those of you who missed the show, it follows the adventures of a noble prince who is sent into a dystopian future and must defeat the demon Aku to change history, all while helping the oppressed along the way and trying to get back to his own time. The show originally ran from 2001-2004, but was pulled before the resolution of Jack’s storyline. After attempts at a movie proved unsuccessful, creator Genndy Tartakovsky came to Adult Swim, who agreed to pick the show up. The new season will be 10 episodes long, and will be the final hurrah for Jack.

And if you want another hint of how dark this is going to get, here’s a promo image that premiered at the Annecy International Animated Festival last year:
