Slate of New Shows on Adult Swim Revealed

Venture Brothers, Black Dynamite, METALOCALPYSE, and many more shows/specials are in the cards for future shows on Adult Swim.

Source: Adult Swim Announces New Series & Pilots

First up the bad news, no new news on Toonami (though of course we'll let you know whenever news breaks) and the Venture Brothers season premiere is delayed until June 6th. HOWEVER a sixth season has been greenlit. New Aqua Teen starts in August (no release date yet). The best news? NEW BLACK DYNAMITE!!!! The show will return with a ten episode season 2 as confirmed via Deadline. The Greatest Event in Television History returns with three more episodes, the first of which airs June 6th. Also renewed for new seasons are Boondocks, Childrens Hospital, China, IL, Eagleheart, The Heart, She Holler, NTSF:SD:SUV::, Off the Air, Robot Chicken, and You're Whole.

As for shows on the dreaded.. HIATUS (aka they're really canceled): Check It Out!, Frankenhole, Mongo Wrestling Alliance, Newsreaders, Squidbillies, Superjail!, and Titan Maximum.


Now for the original content shows/specials that'll be showing up around this year on Adult Swim (also reported by Deadline):


RICK AND MORTY - Rick and Morty is about a genius inventor grandfather and his less than genius grandson, and the journeys in life they share. From Dan Harmon (Community, Channel 101) and Justin Roiland. Animated half-hour.

MR. PICKLES – In Mr. Pickles, the urban sprawl of modern society pollutes the old-fashioned town where the Goodman family lives with their lovable pet dog, Mr. Pickles, a deviant border collie with a secret satanic streak. From creators Will Carsola and Dave Stewart (Funny Or Die Presents Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time). Animated quarter-hour.

MIKE TYSON MYSTERIES – In the new animated comedy series Mike Tyson Mysteries, Mike Tyson is taking the fight from the boxing ring to the streets… by solving mysteries! Armed with a magical tattoo on his face and a trusty associate by his side — a talking pigeon — if you have a problem that needs solving, Iron Mike is in your corner. The series incorporates live-action appearances featuring Mighty Mike himself, and the gloves come off as the former heavyweight champ and his fowl-mouthed partner gear up for weekly adventures as they put unsolved mysteries — like how to defeat a super computer at chess or why a famous author/werewolf can’t finish his novel — down for the count. Animated quarter-hour from Warner Bros Animation.

KING STAR KING – King Star Kingfeatures a punk rock, modern day he-man who falls from the realm of the gods to land as a fry cook in a slummy waffle joint. King Star King must regain his memory to defeat the evil (and adorable) Spring Bunny and rescue his love, the megababe Princess Snow White. Only then will King Star King regain his rightful place in the heavens. From artist JJ Villard (Monsters Vs. Aliens). Animated quarter-hour.

YOUR PRETTY FACE IS GOING TO HELL – This new live-action series from Adult Swim is a workplace comedy about Gary, an associate demon, as he attempts to capture souls on earth in order to climb the corporate ladder of the underworld. Gary hopes to advance in Hell, but he may be too stupid, lazy and kind-hearted to realize his dreams of promotion. Meanwhile, Gary’s intern Claude is more talented, more devious and will do whatever it takes to impress Satan. A Williams Street production, the show is created and directed by Dave Willis(Squidbillies, Aqua Teen Hunger Force) and Casper Kelly(Squidbillies, Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law, Stroker & Hoop).  The series is currently presenting premiere episodes on Thursday nights at Midnight ET/PT on Adult Swim. Live-action quarter-hour.

ROBOT CHICKEN DC COMICS SPECIAL II– Faster than a speeding bullet! Well, maybe not but quality takes time. Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, in partnership with DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, will premiere a sequel to their acclaimed Annie Award-winning Robot Chicken DC Comics Special in 2014. Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II brings you the awesomeness of the DC Comics universe of characters as only Robot Chicken can, with amazing guest stars and the stop-motion sketch comedy you’ve come to love after six seasons of the popular Adult Swim series.

Animation’s Executive Vice President, Creative Affairs Sam Register, and Stoopid Buddy Stoodios’ John Harvatine IV and Eric Towner.

So did an already green lit 4th season of Boondocks get the green light again or are they already onto season 5?

The concept -- especially the "live-action" part -- reminds me of the Mr. T cartoon:

IGN had an article a few days ago that listed Check It Out, Squidbillies, and Superjail as "returning series". And apparently the next season of Superjail is currently being worked on.

"Rick And Morty" is some crazy fucked up shit for a comedy.
In episode 6, Rick's experiment mutates nearly all mankind (except Rick and Morty) into hideously deformed creatures called Kronenbergs. Rick finds an alternate reality where his counter-part was able to reverse the damage but Alternate-Rick and Alternate-Morty die immediately afterwards, so "our" Rick and Morty hide the bodies and take over their counter-parts lives and continue their adventures from there :shock: :lol:

Episode 7 is even wackier as Morty (who is 13 years old) continually fucks an alien sex robot not realizing it's actually a gestation unit, which then spits out his alien son :lol:
