This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Jack is back!
If you grew up in the '90s or just have a thing for classic cartoons, then chances are you've heard of Cartoon Network's epic saga of Samurai Jack.
Well, whether the Emmy-winning series is your personal favorite or is completely foreign to you, we have good news — Samurai Jack is being resurrected and will get a fifth season as part of Toonami in 2016!
Adult Swim made the short video announcement on Facebook early Wednesday morning, saying:
"Creator and executive producer Genndy Tartakovsky continues the epic story with a new season."
Jack marks the second Cartoon Cartoon to get a second life this year with The Powerpuff Girls reboot also set to premiere this Spring.
Here's hoping more of the original cast and crew sign on to make Jack's return as AH-Mazing as possible!
