Jackson Publick, co-creator of The Venture Bros. with Doc Hammer, announced on his blog the exciting news; we’ll be getting two more seasons of TV’s best cartoon, ever! Adult Swim, the late night Cartoon Network take over, has been airing the subversive, Johnny Quest-a-like series since 2003. They reached a deal for two more season as well as a 60-90 minute Venture Bros. special, production is expected to begin this June.
But if this seems like too long to wait for more fun at the Venture compound don’t get you’re Butter Glider all bent out of shape. Publick and Hammer have already been working, secretly, on a 11 minute teaser with Titmous, Inc that we’ll be seeing this summer! Plus, in related news, the complete Season 4 was released on Blu-ray today! What a great day for us Venturoos!
Below the cut check out the announcement in it’s entirety from Publick’s blog.
We’ve recently signed a new contract with adultswim to produce two more seasons of The Venture Bros.
Doc and I officially started writing last week. Though, in truth, we technically started writing season 5 last year when we accidentally brainstormed a handful of (we think) pretty hot new stories while we were writing the season 4 finale. Our goal is to have enough scripts to comfortably begin pre-production by June.
But wait…that’s not all!
Our contract also includes a long-form (60-90 min.) Venture Bros. special. Don’t ask me when we’ll make it, what it’s going to be about, or whether it’ll be on TV or direct-to-DVD, because we don’t have a clue yet. Nevertheless: good news!
Tell them what else they get, Jackson…
We’ve been secretly working on an 11 minute Venture Bros. special for the past couple of months. A sort of light-hearted, one-off little aperitif we’re producing and animating entirely in-house at Titmouse Studios in NY and LA. It will premiere some time this summer.
