Adult Swim has released a new featurette about the long-awaited return of “Samurai Jack,” Genndy Tartakovsky’s kung fu-inspired adventure series which is getting a brand-new fifth season over a decade on from its wrapping up on the Cartoon Network in 2004.
The clip confirms the fifth season will wrap-up Jack’s story and take on the form of one episodic story. Tartakovsky says the new season takes place years after the fourth season finale and newcomers don’t have to have seen the show to start from this season. The arc of the season is that of redemption with Jack trying to find out who he is again.
No air date for the new season has yet to be announced.
