In 2000 in it's third year on air, Toonami did something special by airing it's first original programing that focused on the block's hosts TOM and Sara. It was called "The Intruder" and ran for eight-episodes with the main result from the series was TOM from his original short bulky form to TOM 2.0 which was leaner and a slick black design.
Fourteen years later, and two later specials we'll be finally getting a sequel. Toonami announced on their tumblr that they're working on "The Intruder Part 2", but with a twist. During this weekend if you use the hashtag #intruder2 and if it trents it'll increase the ammount of content of the special which will air sometime in 2015. Here's the official release:
