Adult Swim has finally dropped a one-and-a-half minute Samurai Jack Season 5 trailer and it looks like the show will be everything you want it to be – fun, epic and awesome.
One of the most iconic and beloved Cartoon Network series of all time is making a comeback. After recently confirming the return of Samurai Jack for 10 episodes on Adult Swim on March 11 (Save the date. Jot it down in your diary), Jack’s Back in this awesome new trailer for the upcoming season.
Fans will notice that the trailer is little edgier – more blood and more cartoon violence. Perhaps with the Cartoon Network limits lifted, we might get to see a more adult version of the show.
Samurai Jack follows the time-traveling prince who sets out to destroy the shape-shifting demon, Aku. The new show takes place 15 years after the original, and that’s changed Jack. The first Samurai Jack season 5 artwork released online shows Jack with a thick beard, covered in blood and looking angrier-than-usual.
“When we start, we’re definitely a few years later [than the season 4 finale]. You don’t have to watch episode 52 to start this season. So, what’s changed in Jack’s world is a lot. There’s a lot of drama that’s happened.”
