I have to wonder if this will count the comics (they ended the series in the comics) so will this go past that or fill in time before or ignore it completely? any way I am on board!

Samurai Jack has always been violent. Almost every episode would end with Jack killing assassins, bounty hunters, mercenaries and robot armies sent to kill him by Aku.

But they're mostly robots right? I haven't seen him kill anyone in brutal fashion with blood gushing out.

Phil Lamar was telling me how Jack was never officially canceled and how it never had an end on the show so it could be brought back. Glad it was.

Demand for a Samurai Jack ending to the animated series?

Yes this is awesome news, I admit I haven't seen all episodes of Samurai Jack but what I have seen is enough to see this show was practically a masterpiece. Brilliant atmosphere, superb action, great tone and beautiful animation is what this show had in spades. That makes it all the better that it's coming back. Plus the battle boards should be interesting with this news.

They were mostly robots and cyborg, but there were some that were clearly human or alien that they had either blow up or fall over without any moaning after getting cut by his sword to get past the censors.

For censorship reasons they had to be mostly robots. But they would always gush oil in a very bloody manner when he killed them.

@titanbreaker: There'll be big shoes to fill from Mako's absence as the former voice of Aku. He could sound both sinister and cruel but also hilarious and goofy on a whim. Hopefully they find someone who can do something similar in that performance of Aku.

If it's on adult swim, then it might be more graphic than the original series too. Awesome.

@lvenger: Might seem lazy but I would go to the man who replaced him as Iroh in Avatar. They sounded similar and I would prefer that than some brand new voice actor doing their own style.

YJ has been confirmed for a Netflix special in mid/late 2016.
