We finally have a release date for new Samurai Jack episodes! Samurai Jack was a classic cartoon that I watched when it was on the good old Toonami block on Cartoon Network. This amazing show didn’t get the attention it deserved. It became a real cult favorite. I’m so excited to see we finally get more episodes. The new episodes will premiere on March 11.

Samurai Jack had a really unique animation style and blended sci-fi and samurai goodness into the perfect cartoon cocktail. Really what more could you want when you have a time traveling samurai trying to defeat an evil tyrant demon? Nothing. You need nothing more.
The show had four seasons and the end was so open and unsatisfying that fans have been wishing for more since 2004. Those wishes have finally come true with this fifth season. Phil LaMarr will reprise his role as Jack and it sounds like Jack is in a much darker place than before. You can check out the discussion of this season from the SDCC 2016 panel and a behind the scenes video about the production.
March is going to be quite a month. I can’t wait to finally get the conclusion to this story. Now to just marathon the other four seasons in February to prepare for it!
