With one smooth slice of his katana and a looming shadow of Aku, Samurai Jack has announced his long-anticipated return!

Adult Swim released a teaser announcing the time-displaced hero's new season, which will premiere on Adult Swim's Toonami block sometime in 2016.

The cinematic and highly original show was created by Genndy Tartakovsky, but not even its loyal fan base could save it from the axe when Cartoon Network saw its ratings slipping in the fourth season. All is forgiven now, though, because we're getting a whole new continuation of this epic story!

Here's the video announcement in all its glory

For those unfamiliar with Samurai Jack, this is way more than a cash grab for nostalgia. The show was complex, critically acclaimed, and downright beautiful as it followed one determined Samurai attempt to travel back to his time period and take on a tyrannical demon spirit.

Rest assured, with Tartakovsky back at the helm, this will be just the slice of childhood cartoons that we've been waiting for.
