WH-- UNDER ATTAAAACK?! Posted Wednesday, June 15, 2016, 2:53PM by Daikun
The Samurai Jack panel had just taken place today at Annecy, and we have a ton of news regarding the new season.

Season 5 will take place 50 years after season 4 left off and it will last 10 episodes. Since it will be on Adult Swim, it will be much darker than its Cartoon Network counterpart. Finally, yes, it will conclude the series. There's also a new poster and plenty of pictures from the panel.

UPDATE: A staff member for the new season held a Q&A recently. Here's the few interesting notes to take away from it:

-The art style will try to match the original series as much as possible. The only notable change is that it will have to be digitally painted.
-The SJ comics that IDW published a few years back are non-canon, so any chance of references to or adaptations of the comic's stories are highly unlikely.
-There won't be a new theme song, but there will be a new intro sequence.
-Tyler Bates (who did the score for Sym-Bionic Titan) may do the music.
-Aku has not been recast yet. Auditions to fill the late Mako's shoes start next week.

Also, if anyone wants a good laugh...
