Full Trailer For The Fifth Season Of “Samurai Jack” Released

Samurai Jack fifth season adult Swim

While fans have waited years for Samurai Jack to return, it seems that even more time has passed for the katana-wielding prince.

A new trailer for the fifth season of Samurai Jack has been released. There are numerous shots showcasing the series’ unique animation. Check it out!

The trailer shows that Jack has been trapped in Aku’s future for 50 years after the end of season four. Apparently, he is unable to age because of being sent to the future. Furthermore, all of the time portals have been destroyed by Aku. The trailer shows a dark time for Jack but if you remember the previous seasons, he is destined to succeed in his mission to end Aku’s reign.

The series debuted on Cartoon Network back in August 2001. It lasted for 52 episodes and ended its fourth season in September 2004. I remember enjoying all of the episodes that varied from dark to humorous. There was also a PlayStation 2 game based on the cartoon show.

Owing to the fact that my brother and I (and sometimes our sister) always called dibs on fictional characters, I was Aku because his powers resembled Raven’s from Teen Titans, while my brother was Jack. I had so much fun watching Jack (aka my brother) trying to defeat Aku (aka myself) during the episodes and always failing. You can imagine how much I rubbed it in my younger brother’s face. Now, both of us are looking forward to the new episodes, and there’s a good chance my brother (Jack) will finally get to defeat me (Aku).

Fans will be able to watch the 10-episode fifth season of Samurai Jack on March 11, 2017. It will air on Adult Swim at 11 p.m. ET/PT. If you haven’t watched all of the previous episodes or if you need a refresher you can view all four seasons on Hulu.

Are you a fan of Samurai Jack? Are you looking forward to the fifth season? Let us know!
