The Venture Brothers, quite frankly, kicks several kinds of ass. If you’ve never seen the wacky show about the crazy Venture family (aging-scientist father Thaddeus “Rusty” and well-meaning-but-pretty-dumb twin brothers Hank and Dean) and their exploits against the villains of their world (led by “arch-nemesis” The Monarch, among several ridiculous others), I’mma need you to stop reading right now and go track the first five seasons down. You can tweet me and thank me tomorrow. Today brings good news, friends: the long-awaited sixth season of the show is set to debut soon!
According to a press release from Adult Swim (the cable “imprint” that shares channel space with Cartoon Network), the new season is set to premiere at Midnight ET on January 31. The full 8-episode season is planned to air in week-to-week order thereafter. Check out the official words for yourself, conveniently provided by Adult Swim via a real estate listing:
Location, Location, Location! Perfectly situated in the heart of New York City, season 6 of The Venture Bros. is a billionaire’s dream come true, offering the discerning buyer top-of-the-line drama and panoramic danger in every direction. Super-scientists, bring your loofah! Relax and unwind from a long day in the lab in your luxurious, spa-like, master bath, where floor-to-ceiling windows offer spectacular views of approaching enemies from every direction. This eight episode, 3 BR, 2 BA stunner comes with its own dedicated robot, plus servants’ quarters for live-in bodyguard.
The only real bummer about the show to date has been its production schedule: The Venture Brothers officially premiered on Adult Swim in 2003, and the last new episode was seen in 2013; those ten years have held the previous five seasons, in quite an erratic release schedule. Hopefully season 6 will reward fans for the extended wait!
