If you’re like me, you’ve been waiting for the tifth season of Samurai Jack for far, far too long… But rejoice – dear friends – because the wait is almost motherfucking over. In one of its trademark bumps from last night, Adult Swim gave us the date and the time.
March 11th, 11:30 p.m.

LET’S FUCKING GOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Earlier this year, Adult Swim aired a marathon of Samurai Jack, and Adult Swim’s Toonami teased a new season in development in 2016. If you’re not familiar with Samurai Jack, it’s a show about a time-traveling samurai fighting against a shape-shifting demon. Jack gets thrown through time by Aku and ends up in a dystopian version of Earth – where Aku assumes Jack will never find him.
It looks like now, he’ll finally find out.
The 10-episode season will reportedly have “several” returning voice actors to reprise their roles from the first four seasons from 2001-2004, including Phil LaMarr – who voices Jack.
