Long ago in a distant land...
I, Cartoon Network, the show cancelling master of hiatus...
Unleashed an UNSPEAKABLE EVIL! (seriously, I canceled Justice League: Unlimited after it's 2nd Season ohohoho GOD I'm EVIL)
But a foolish samurai cartoon...
Wielding an interesting plot...
Stepped forth to oppose me...
(CLANG) (SLASH) (SLASH CLANG) (VARIOUS EPIC SLICE AND DICE NOISES)
Before season 4 was struck...
I tore open a portal in time...
And flung the samurai show into hiatus, where my evil is law!
Now the fool seeks to return in 2016.
And UNDO the HIATUS THAT IS CARTOON NETWORK!
Fixed that for you. ;-)
Seriously cool news. Always felt there was more room for stories in the series (or at least a conclusion).
Only bad news, Mako passed away in 2006, so who's going to provide the incredibly evil (but coolish) voice of Aku now?
Can't speak to when it will be coming out. But I did see the recent release from Adult Swim with a behind the scenes look about where the series will pickup. A couple of notes:
*Looks like it will be a harder, more weary Jack now.
*Aku's voice will be done in the Mako style by a voice double.
*Because it's on Adult Swim, expect more blood. I guess that means not every baddie will be a robot he can slice in two.
