Cartoon Network is evidently looking to get ahead of the 90s comeback curve by bringing back a show from the 21st century. It’s Samurai Jack, the cultishly adored science fiction cartoon that most of the people who remember it being on the air would probably appreciate more now that they’re older – a fitting dynamic for the show’s return to CN sister network Adult Swim.
The comeback was announced via a short video teaser under the title Jack is Back, which come to think of it is the same slogan they used for a couple of seasons of 24. I’m not accusing anyone of anything, just making an observation.
If you have a slim five seconds to spare, you can check out the teaser for Samurai Jack 2.0 below. The show is coming to the Adult Swim Toonami block sometime next year, so you won’t even have to time travel too far in order to watch it.
Here’s the teaser:
