Adult Swim can be subgby some, let’s say, staffing problems at the moment – as a result of allegations of domestic abuse and other allegations against Rick and Morty star and co-creator Justin Roiland opens up big, obvious problems for the network, which announced yesterday that it was cutting ties with him— but that doesn’t mean the network doesn’t know how to pull out an old, reliable crowd-pleaser from time to time.
Hence, presumably, news today that Master Shake, Frylock and Meatwad – known by late night television occupy the world as Aqua Teen Hunger Force-is officially returning to the Cartoon Network network. Adult Swim announced today that it has ordered new episodes of the series — which ran on Adult Swim from 2000 to 2015, often with increasingly silly names like Aqua something you know regardless— alongside the announcement that the latest film in the series, Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasmwould come to HBO Max on February 8.
Or to put it with series creators Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro:
We are excited to do more Aqua Teen Hunger Force episodes for a new generation of fans, building on the most impressive collection of IP ever assembled. Success is optimal and leads to quality.
Congratulations! You waited just long enough Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm to be free on the service your parents pay for. I can’t wait for you to discover the project everyone has been talking about, and by everyone I mean our personal twitter accounts. There are too many things to see already. Breathe and focus solely on the Aqua Teen. Delete everything else.
There is no word yet when the new episodes of Aqua Teen Hunger Force will arrive on Adult Swim. The series continues to star Willis, plus Carey Means and Dana Snyder asfries and the cup.
