It’s been almost 13 years since we have last watched this Emmy-award-winning, animated cult favorite, which originally aired on Cartoon Network from 2001-2004.
Isn’t it unbelievable how time flies all these years? We’ve aged, I know. Many of the 90s watched the movie and were so into it. “Samurai Jack” is certainly one of Cartoon Network’s best shows!
Started airing two days ago, January 14, Adult Swim is re-broadcasting the series – one episode each week – at 8:30 p.m., according to its website.
The network is set to air all of the previous 52 episodes of the animated series leading up to Season 5, which is the final season whose timeline will take place 50 years after the final episode of Season 4, reports Cleveland.com.
“I think we’re going to see Jack in a new light because we’re going to see him from a very different standpoint. In the original series he was very heroic person on a very rigid quest. Now we pick up with him, and it’s many years after the fact and he’s a little bit lost. So it’s a story of redemption and him trying to find who he is again,” writer Darrick Bachman said in an interview on the Bitbag.
