EXCLUSIVE: New Samurai Jack Season Premiere Date Revealed- Phil Lamarr to Return to Voice Character.
January 23, 2017
Akuuuuuu! is one phrase that will be heard after
a very long time. This is because after a long wait, Samurai Jack
is officially returning for a fifth season and we have an official
release date for this new outing.
Thanks to Adult Swim andusfans now know that Samurai Jack will premiere
March 11th at 11:30 PM. This update came during the network's
nightly run, the late-night program played a special social media
bump where it answered fans' questions. When one fan asked whether
Jack's new season was still happening, this is what Adult Sim had
“March 11th, 11:30 p.m. is what’s going on,” the
bump wrote. Then, when another fan asked about the show, the bump
simply asked, “What did we just say?”
Airing on Adult Swim's Toonami, the Samurai Jack
comeback had fans unbelievably hyped when it was revealed that Jack
was going to return. The original series ran for four seasons from
2001 until 2004 and featured the time-traveling samurai prince as
he fought against the shape-shifting demon Aku. Following the demon
through time, the character assumed the name Jack once he traveled
to a dystopian version of Earth to kill Aku before he could unleash
unspeakable evil upon the universe.
A few cast full of several major members will be
returning to the 10-episode season such as Phil LaMarr who
originally voiced the show’s titular character. While LaMarr was
initially unable to comment on his involvement with Samurai Jack’s
fifth season, the actor was later able to do so following an
appearance at AwesomeCon 2016.
