I think that just means they are going to start playing it again, not new episodes
but I'll probably start watching toonami more often
because I haven't actually seen all the episodes

>“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 of episodes 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.
HOLY FUCK IT'S LEGIT
OH FUCK. Jesus this came out of fucking nowhere!
It wont be the same without Mako though
Holy shit really?
Don't fucking toy with me CN.
Mako had a pretty distinctive voice, surely there are dedicated impersonators out there, at least for Aku, they can find something. Hopefully this doesn't turn out like the Xiaolin Showdown reboot
IS THIS THE REAL LIFE
OR IS THIS JUST FANTASY?
You mean you weren't already grown up when it originally aired?
>Samurai Jack gets a S2
Don't mention it.
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality
>Teen Titans comes back
>Powerpuff Girls comes back
>No original voice actors or any of the previous showrunners
>Digimon Adventure comes back
>It's 6 OVAs released every 4 months
>Samurai Jack comes back
>Mako is dead
MONKEY'S PAW HAVEN'T YOU KILLED ME ENOUGH?
I really hope this is a continuation and not an edgy remake
Oh man, my childhood is fucking pumped.
Also, posting in inevitable sticky.
If this is true I think I'm actually going to need too finally catch up with Samurai Jack
I only watched it on occasion, don't know why, probably because it was never on that much here in the UK. Yeah that's it, it's CN UK's fault
Remember when Pacific Rim got a sequel announced and everyone was hype? Then it got cancelled
I'll believe it when I see it. Don't get me wrong I want this more than anything, but I've been burned before
Praise the lord! Does that mean after Samurai Jack is finished could Sym Bionic Titan be possible?
Do you think this time around they'll allow it to be gritty with actual blood or something like that? I mean if the timeslot is late enough Adult Swim might be going for it
>Remember when Pacific Rim got a sequel announced and everyone was hype? Then it got cancelled
Yeah but they released a Youtube video man.
A Youtube video
That's basically the equivalent of saying "it's happening"
I think Adult Swim just means that Gennedy won't have CN executives up his ass and whining about slicing up robots being too violent, and considering it's actually Toonami, he'll probably make it so the show is PG-13 at worst from just the action
Adult Swim could never afford that anyway.
If anything the animation will be cheaper, though that's fine since SJ always rode on it's designs and cinematography rather than the actual quality of animation.
>Hey Arnold is confirmed getting revived with a new TV movie
My childhood is coming back and I'm so fucking happy. What a time to be alive
Is this real life? Am I still in a dream? Snake Eater?
It was from the man him-fucking-self not some faceless corporation. I know that Guillermo doesn't pay the bills, but cmon. That was perceived as being a 100% surefire thing. I'm just remaining cautious.
I never got the appeal of this show. It was just Powerpuff Girls with a guy instead of three kids.
Technically Yes, but the fight isn't technically over
Aku imposed his 1000 years of darkness so he got that, but Jack isn't dead
There are essentially two timelines, the one where jack is thrown into the future that is Aku
and potentially the timeline that is created if jack gets back to the past and defeats Aku
If he does, then the old timeline is erased and only Jack retains his memories
The series never ended. The last episode was a regular one with neither closure nor a cliffhanger.
The closest to an outcome was that episode with Not!Morpheus where we see a much, much older Jack finally winning.
Jack still needs to beat the Guardian.
I am extremely conflicted about this.
On one hand this is the most amazing news to wake up to and probably the one thing since Space Dandy that would get me watching Toonami again.
But on the other hand, Mako is dead, and no matter who the get to replace him as Aku's VA, no matter how good he ends up being, it just wont be the same.
I mean holy shit, I was perfectly content with the comic ending and accepted that the show would never return, and yet...
I-Im afraid to hope again
Nope, there was never an official winner, but there was that one episode where Jack fought blue Morpheus and he suggest that he does go back in time eventually. He's just grown older when it finally happens.
he didn't "win," we just never got a conclusion.
in fact, there's some episode where he could've gotten back, but another character stopped him because he had some kind of destiny that would lead him into old age before he could go back
Not exactly. He won before at the very start of the series, but he never killed Jack or nulled his accomplishments.
In the comics, which may or may not still be canon, Jack even started a full blown resistance movement and was ready to take Aku head on.
>yfw the reason why the comics ended right before the battle was because the show is going to start from there.
>Tfw If jack can come back, Titan has a chance
You know, to be honest I never really cared for Samurai Jack, but right now I want nothing more than for this to do well so then there would at least be a chance for a revival of Sym-Bionic Titan.
This is wonderful, but I feel a little cheated that I'll never get to see this.
I hope you guys give this show a fair chance and not overlook the good things about it, even if it ends up being different from the original show.
Best cinematography, sound direction, and overall art direction in an American cartoon ever.
Also it's about a samurai slicing up robots, so if you're just in it for the action you won't be disappointed either.
it's about SJW censoring anything lewd
This is why 2015 has been so shit
This is why all these horrible things have been happening
It was the universe balancing things out for this moment
I am at peace with the world and no longer afraid to die
Take me away, Genndy, I'm am ready
>implying the feminists and SJWs won't use their collective power cancel the show after all the blood and gore that would potentially show in the first episode
>implying the feminists and SJWs won't start a petition to even let it release due to a beloved children's cartoon getting sullied by having it shown on Adult Swim
...so when will they ruin this guys?
I admit Aku's voice acting was a good chunk of why he was a GOAT villain. But his lines, demeanor, and overall design were the brunt of his greatness. As long as he's written as great as he was in the original, I'm sure another voice actor can do the job.
That six second teaser turned a shit day into a great day
Why won't you be able to see it? You're dying or something?
Excited as I am I know this show going to get the early korra treatment. We are going to blame in every bad aspect of the show on the reboot without realizing that that our nostalgia glasses have worn off.
JACK IS BACK
Samurai Jack isn't even gonna make a blip on the SJW radar, let alone be influenced. Besides, Gumby Tartarsauceky is back, so I doubt he'll let the spirit of the original change
>yfw it's revealed to be a TTG style parody of the original show
So what was the best episode?
I'm torn between Tale of X9 and The Princess and the Bounty Hunters
Do you think a new season could possibly live up to the hype? Or will it miss the point entirely?
>tfw I just remembered Studio Trigger mentioned being interested in doing an Adult Swim series earlier this year
>Imaishi: But it's like, if we could air something on Adult Swim, we probably wouldn't hold back at all.
>CN outsources animation on Samurai Jack to Studio Trigger
>There will be no word to describe the sheer HYPE that will result
I know right
My God these are nice early Christmas presents
>First episode gets released and people tear it apart because the animation isn't godly angel's milk straight from Jesus' dick
>Nobody remembers that the original series didn't have god-tier animation, but instead relied on incredible cinematography and direction to create a moody atmospheric cartoon punctuated by fast paced action scenes.
Please don't let the shitposters ruin this, /co/.
Watch it end up like Xiaolin Chronicles.
I really hope the preview is the only thing animated in flash.
>Lulu, sweet thing.
I mean the only thing that I can see as a problem are the little changes they are forced to do and how much that'll impact us, which is usually a big deal.
I just want the animation to be intact and I can die happy.
The Four Seasons of Death and Samurai vs Ninja were both more 'art' then Jack and the Three Blind Archers
Fuck, this show is so fucking good. I think the only bad episode was Jack and the Farting Dragon
So how come it's going to be on Adult Swim now? Is it no longer going to be a kids show and just go full force with the story, violence and language?
Just like my animus desu
How long would that take? I'd actually be pretty down for that since I don't really remember the series at all and might actually watch it through
I think I might cry
The Lituation is real
if you are seriously implying the show airing on AS isn't a synonym for at least slight amounts of violence and gore that weren't present in the original show
because of you are then I'll just have to call you a fucking idiot
>guts gets off the boat
>jack comes back
What a time to be alive
>We've grown up but we're still bloody watching kids cartoons aren't we?
Just because we are weird enough to watch kids cartoons doesn't mean we're the target audience for them.
SJ was always a show that targeted toward the boys anyway, and we've all grown up
>doesn't mean we're the target audience for them.
That's the thing though, with this new series it seems like we will be, despite the fact it was a kids show before. I think kids now would still be able to enjoy Samurai Jack, even were it to get a new Season
>Make first thread about it
>Oh shit maybe I'll get a sticky that'll be my crowning 4chan achievement
>Someone else makes another one that gets stickied
Thanks guys, but honestly this is really fucking awesome. This is just fucking nuts, I never expected to ever hear something like this.
Off to bed, but here's to hoping this turns out well.
It's going to be on Adult Swim
>blood and gore
I didn't know we reached the singularity yet. Damn android soccer moms trying to ban this and the martix for racism.
3)SJW and feminist.
From both groups the ones that focus on cartoons are manchildren. They should be hyped as well. From all the shows they can hate why would you think it Samurai Jack is one of them? Jack's dad was part of a organization made up of different religions and ethnicities to stop one giant evil from returning to rule the world. Jack's childhood has been one big multi cultural experience from his sword, training and friendships. The female aku episode pretty much had them teamed up as equals having a good time.
You just want start some sjw hate thread on our good time. Fuck off
>Your fucking face when best character has a good chance of coming back
I really hope the show doesn't forget it's moments of humor
>MFW the [adult swims] pulls production on the show before it evens begins.
On /co/ you could exactly pinpoint the dropoff in enthusiasm for LOK to the love triangle episode, apparently Bolin getting keked was enough to destroy all of the goodwill the franchise and Bryke had on this beard.
