Sumarai Jack’s Season 5, full length trailer is up. This will be the final season of Samurai Jack. Apparently from the trailer, Jack is stuck in Aku’s future for 50 years since the last season. Not only that, the nemesis Aku has also destroyed the time portals, forcing Jack to get stranded. Season 5 will have 10 episodes and begins airing on Adult Swim on March 11 at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
The new season has more mature elements and forms a cohesive story. It follows Jack fifty years after the end of original series’ story, and it will conclude Jack’s journey. Every episode will have a “reveal” that further unravels the mystery of the series and takes it in a different direction; one of the episodes will feature Jack having to deal with killing a person, after years of only having destroyed robots.
Samurai Jack originally aired on Cartoon Network from 2001 to 2004, comprising four seasons. The series follows a young samurai (voiced by Phil LaMarr) who is cast into the future by the evil shape-shifting demon Aku (Mako Iwamatsu) mere moments before defeating the demon. He adopts the name Jack and continues his fight in the dystopian future ruled by Aku. Jack seeks to find a portal back to his time but is constantly thwarted by the demon’s forces. The series was left open-ended since 2004. Tartakovsky previously expressed interest in a film adaptation of the series to provide a genuine conclusion, but the project never materialized.
