Adult Swim has just announced that the animated series Samurai Jack is making its comeback on Toonami in 2016. Since Genndy Tartakovsky announced that he would not be moving forward with Hotel Transylvania 3. Tartakovsky will be back as executive producer. When talking with Comicbook.com back in September about not coming back to Hotel Transylvania Tartakovsky had this to say about our favorite Samurai:
I think through the years, after we finished Jack, almost every year it seems like Samurai Jack has gotten more and more popular and more and more people have seen it. I feel like it’s culminating to a fever pitch almost. I feel like it’s time to maybe finish the story. We’ve been trying to get the feature off the ground but maybe that’s just fate’s way of saying this is a television thing and maybe it should be a mini-series or something like that.
The series follows Jack, a time-displaced samurai, in his singular quest to travel back in time and defeat the tyrannical demon Aku.
