Rumored back in December, Adult Swim has now confirmed that Genndy Tartakovsky is reviving his “Samurai Jack” TV series on Adult Swim with the episodes to hit this year.
The show is returning after a twelve year hiatus with a new season of half-hour episodes, news included in today’s announcement of the network’s programming slate. A specific premiere date has yet to be announced.
The original series follows a samurai from Feudal Japan who finds himself in the future, in which Earth is ruled by the demon Aku, a shape-shifter. No casting has been announced.
