There were tons of Cartoon Network classics that defined our childhood, but few were as grabbing and ahead-of-its-time as Samurai Jack. Now, it looks like Jack's time has finally come: after a successful run on Adult Swim, Samurai Jack is returning to finally vanquish his infamous foe Aku. And the season five Samurai Jack trailer certainly shows is all the proof needed that this revamp is going to be totally awesome.
In case you missed the series the first time around, it follows the titular samurai after he nearly slays a demon by the name of Aku. Aku, so fearful of the samurai, manages to send him into the future before the final blow... and by the way, it's a horrifying dystopian universe in which the Aku is supreme overlord. Jack spends the series trying to go back in time and/or defeat Aku (whichever comes first) and the eccentric stories told are action packed, stylishly drawn, and even occasionally funny. I'll be honest, it doesn't look like this new season is going to be a bit more serious, especially after Aku shut down all the time portals necessary for Jack to go home, but it does look absolutely badass. You can watch the teaser below, and then scroll down for all the arguments to tune into Adult Swim March 11 at 11 pm for this special limited series.
