By on

Samurai Jack Season 5 is confirmed to return this year, with a special treat seen at Cartoon Network?s Toonami panel at the recent Anime Con in Los Angeles. Creator Genndy Tartakovsky was kind enough to show an 8-minute video of behind the scene actions. More than 12 years after Samurai Jack?s last season, the video is by far the anime?s best offer to fans at this time.

The panel was hosted by creator Genndy Tartakovsky and voice actor Phil Lamarr (Samurai Jack) wherein, they also discussed how they were able to patch things after its 12-year hiatus. Also, they revealed their plans for Samurai Jack Season 5 when it premieres at the end of the year.

As early as December, Cartoon Network revealed the promise of Samurai Jack Season 5, ending the cliffhanger season finale of the anime series in 2004. They also said that this season will significantly put a good ending on the series; addressing the tumultuous cry of fans when it had abruptly ended years ago.

According to Polygon, Samurai Jack?s Genndy Tartakovsky has not been idle during the years when anime series went off air. In fact, at the time, he was working on the ?Hotel Transylvania? series as well as the ?Star Wars: Clone Wars? series.


Samurai Jack in 2004 was never really given the proper ending it deserved. It was never concluded and the only way fans can consider a closure is through hints about what could have happened after the fateful incidents of the last season. Tartakovsky, on the other hand, has been very open about creating a new season; now with ?Samurai Jack Season 5. He said he would be pleased if Samurai Jack will have another chance, promising a good, adventurous ending for the anime series.

A previous report by TheBitBag revealed that Tartakovsky had previously addressed questions about Samurai Jack coming out on the big screen wherein he replied, ?We?ve been trying to get the feature off the ground but maybe that?s just fate?s way of saying this is a television thing and maybe it should be a mini-series or something like that.?
