The epic tale of Samurai Jack came to a conclusive end earlier this year with a final showdown between Jack and Aku. But even with a full season to build up to the ultimate end, Tartakovsky felt a little pressed for time.
The idea of a Samurai Jack movie sounds amazing—all the style and drama of what made Genndy Tartakovsky’s scifi sword-swinging cartoon so good with the budget and screen real estate of a film. But it turns out we could’ve got one in the gap between the show’s fourth and fifth seasons... and it doesn’t sound as good as…
After Dexter’s Laboratory and Powerpuff Girls, Genndy Tartakovsky wanted to do something different for his next show—an ultra-stylized action series that would adopt a new art style. Tartakovsky also had a reason for Samurai Jack’s cinematic, sparse dialogue: he was burned out after doing two comedy shows.
Earlier this year, Adult Swim presented the fifth and final season of Genndy Tartakovsky’s much-loved, Emmy-winning animated series Samurai Jack. The show may be over, but it’s getting a fitting send-off with Samurai Jack: The Complete Series, a gorgeous box set that contains every episode and plenty of top-notch…

When Adult Swim announced it would be bringing back Genndy Tartakovsky’s beloved animated scifi series Samurai Jack for one last season, many fans expected to see a show that would give them a darker, more violent Jack. The new season does give us that darker hero, but not in the way you might have expected. It’s …
The fifth and final season of Samurai Jack is going to be darker, tougher, and violent as hell. But there’s one thing it won’t have: dog buttholes.
After going off the air in 2004, the fifth and final season of Adult Swim’s Samurai Jack will begin on March 11. The first clip of that premiere episode shows an armored Jack fighting a pack of insectoid robots. Since 50 years has passed in-universe, it’s especially impressive.
Adult Swim has released a new featurette about the music in Samurai Jack’s upcoming fifth season, and it’s packed with a good chunk of new footage from the show. That’s not the best part, though—the best part is creator Genndy Tartakovsky, who’s so excited about Jack’s return he provides his own vocalized soundtrack…
Excellent news: Samurai Jack is back next month! Even excellenter news: To celebrate, Adult Swim is streaming all 52 episodes of the show on loop, available for free online with no ads, right goddamn now.

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.

Yes, Jack is indeed back. Last year we learned that Genndy Tartakovsky’s scifi-themed samurai series was making its way to TV once more, but now the first fleeting details about what’s in store for Jack in the new series have emerged—along with some gorgeous, gorgeous art.
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.
