 “Long ago in a distant land,” reads the villain’s expositional monologue introduction to every episode of the original Samurai Jack series,  “I, Aku, the shape shifting master of darkness, unleashed and unspeakable evil. But a foolish samurai warrior wielding a magic sword stepped forth to oppose me. Before the final blow was struck, I tore open a portal in time, and flung him into the futureicon1 - Samurai Jack Is Making Its Return To Adult Swim In 2016 where my evil is law. Now the fool seeks to return to the past and undo the future that is Aku.”

The original Samurai Jack series ran from 2001 to 2004 with a total of 52 episodes. Since the end of its run, Tartakovsky has teased the character’s return. Earlier rumors suggested that he might even bring Jack to the big screen. If you missed it earlier this year, be sure to check out ComingSoo
