It feels like it’s been far too long since the heartwarming delight of Steven Universe was in our lives—but the wait for more Crystal Gem goodness is nearly over. Steven Universe is back January 4th, with a whole week of episodes!
The event is ostensibly to celebrate Steven’s Birthday, but really, it means we’re getting five episodes, one a day, between January 4th and January 8th—commonly called a “Steven Bomb” by Cartoon Network, who announced the show’s return with a press release today. Here’s a rundown of the new episodes, as well as a new picture from the first episode in the line up, “The Answer”:
“The Answer”– Garnet finally tells Steven the story of how she came to be a Crystal Gem.
“Steven’s Birthday” – Steven has a birthday party out at the barn, and decides he has some growing up to do.
“It Could’ve Been Great” – The Gems take a trip to the moon.
“Message Received” – Steven has doubts about believing in everyone.
“Log Date 7 15 2”– Steven sneaks a listen to a friend’s audio diary.
As the resident Steven Universe fan here on io9, I’m just gonna go and run around in circles wooping for the next five minutes. Okay? Okay.
