The show will return later this year during Adult Swim's Toonami block and is currently in production in Los Angeles.

The four-time Primetime Emmy Award winning series that has its roots in the early 2000's is back! Samurai Jack, created by Genndy Tartakovsky follows Jack, a samurai who travelled through time with the quest to head back to where he came from and defeat the demon Aku.

The show ended in 2004 but not before cultivating a die hard fanbase that has been clamoring for it's return for just over 10 years. Fans looking for their Jack fix got a small taste in comic form, thanks to IDW. The character also took part in the Super Secret Crisis War from writer Louise Simonson.


"I feel like it's culminating to a fever pitch almost." said Tartakovsky in a previous interview with "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."

One interesting element of the image above is the presence of blood - as Jack usually just fought robots and such in his cult favorite Cartoon Network series.
