‘Samurai Jack’ Is Back in Rain-Swept New Season 5 Teaser
After so many years (and an apparent lifetime’s worth of rain), Cartoon Network’s Samurai Jack is finally unsheathing his sword for a March return. The fifth season looks ready to strike in a brand-new teaser for the Adult Swim premiere, set fifty years after the prior series.
In lieu of an official trailer, Cartoon Network shared a new glimpse of Samurai Jack Season 5, as the swordsman hero seems once-again bombarded by the rain (and at least clean-shaven this time). The Genndy Tartakovsky series is set to premiere on March 11 at 11:30 P.M., while writer Darrick Bachman previously described of the return:
I think we’re going to see [Jack] in a new light because we’re going to see him from a different standpoint. In the original series he was very heroic person on a very rigid quest. Now we pick up with him an 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.
We’ll likely see a full trailer before long, but watch the first Samurai Jack Season 5 featurette below while we wait.
