The network pickups of the last few days might have dominated the news, but that hasn't made us any less excited for Adult Swim's new offerings in the coming year.

Merciful Zeus, we're just weeks away from the long-awaited season 5 premiere of 'The Venture Bros.'

Catch up on ten years of 'The Venture Bros,' with an all-new retrospective inside!

'Community' may continue to be in dire straights given that NBC still hasn't picked a return airdate for the 13-episode fourth season, but ousted creator Dan Harmon is still sitting pretty.

That said, how many episodes is the order for, and what story will it tell?
