‘Adventure Time’ Coming To An End In 2018
One of the most popular shows on Cartoon Network is coming to an end: the ninth season will be the last for Adventure Time.
However, there is some good news in all this: the final season will not occur until 2018, so we still have a lot of Adventure Time left ahead of us.
“Adventure Time changed the definition of what a kids’ TV series could be, and it’s had a resounding impact upon popular culture around the world,” said Cartoon Network chief content officer Rob Sorcher. “Cartoon Network Studios is proud to have brought together this group of brilliant artists and animators who helped make Adventure Time one of the most critically acclaimed TV series of a generation.”
Creator Pen Ward added, “Adventure Time was a passion project for the people on the crew who poured their heart into the art and stories. We tried to put into every episode something genuine and telling from our lives, and make a show that was personal to us, and that had jokes, too! I’m really happy that it connected with an audience for so long. It’s a special thing, I think.”
For my money, Adventure Time is one of the best animated shows in the history of television, so it’ll be sad to finally see it go. That said, it’s good that we still have plenty of episodes ahead before the end. Perhaps it’ll win a few more Emmys to go with the six awards it has won already (five times for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation, and once for Outstanding Short-Format Animation). Either way, the show has left fans with plenty of memories, with more to come. So here’s to Adventure Time.
