Toonami: Naruto Out, Naruto Shippuden In

One series exits, another steps forth which just so happens to be the sequel to said departing series.

Today via their tumblr, Toonami revealed that the popular anime Naruto will be leaving the animated action block on November 30th. Replacing it? Why Naruto Shippuden! The actual release date for that series hasn't been revealed yet (Toonami only teased it be released the same time as Space Dandy). It's probable either series will debut sometime in early 2014. No word on what will air in the meantime.


They also confirmed that Naruto Shippuden will air uncut as it's predecessor did in the timeslot it'll be inheriting. We'll keep you updated as any more news pours in. Here's the full lowdown on what they posted:


Hey guys! It’s only been a week or two since we announced the happy news that we’ll be world premiering SPACE DANDY on Toonami in January, but we’ve  got  more big news we’ve been dying to communicate to you.
First, some bad news: Naruto will be leaving Toonami on November 30th. Don’t worry, it’s out there streaming in several places if you want to continue the story (and we think you should).
But the GOOD news is, NARUTO SHIPPUDEN is finally coming home to Toonami in January, premiering the same night as Space Dandy (final date tbd)!
And yes, it will be uncut. And glorious.
There’s more news coming down the pike, but for now, enjoy your regular Naruto eps and prepare to get caught up, because SHIPPUDEN. IS. COMING.
We’re excited! Hope you are too.
Stay Gold!
Love, the Toonami Crew
