The 5th Season of Samurai Jack has been a pipe dream and fan desire for many years, and it will be great to finally see everyone’s favorite time traveling Samurai return to television. I am curious to see how it all plays out, and to finally get some closure from the 13 year old Season 4 finale.
Since the series initially ended in 2004 though, the voice actor for the main villain Aku, who was voiced by the incredible Mako, passed away. You may know Mako from his work in Avatar: The Last Airbender as Uncle Iroh, or through his many live action appearances in films depicting Japan. Veteran voice actor extraordinaire Phil LaMarr will return as Jack.
Samurai Jack will debut Season 5 on March 11th in the Adult Swim block on Cartoon Network.
