Samurai Jack, the legendary warrior hurled through time has returned to finally end his quest in defeating the evil shape-shifting wizard, Aku. The show originally aired on Cartoon Network back in 2001.
The new trailer reveals more about how the series will kick off. 50 years since he was flung through time and those 50 years he’s been on his quest to defeat Aku and return to his own time. Although it seems that Jack hasn’t aged all those years, he seems to have lost himself and his purpose in the endless struggle against his nemesis Aku.
“Fifty years have passed… but I do not age.”
Genndy Tartakovsky, the Executive Producer, revealed earlier that the series will be much darker than the previous seasons, and will finally bring the story to a close ever since the series came to an abrupt end in 2004.
Tartakovsky the creative genius behind Dexter’s Laboratory and Star Wars: Clone Wars is finally finishing the story he started. Phil LaMarr will reprise his role as the voice actor for Samurai Jack.
The series is set to air on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim block March 11th at 11/10c for the fifth and final season.
