New ‘Samurai Jack’ Season 5 Footage Debuts in Extended Music Featurette
We’ve already seen one look at Samurai Jack’s Adult Swim return for Season 5, but it’s worth wondering how the style has evolved in a decade or so since its Cartoon Network days. Allow Genndy Tartakovsky and composer Tyler Bates to explain in an extended featurette for the March premiere.
Adult Swim dropped a new six-minute behind-the-scenes featurette for the new season, concentrating on Tartakovsky’s use of music and sound effects to shape the style of Samurai Jack.

The series is set to premiere on March 11 at 11:30 P.M., while so reads the full synopsis:
