Adventure Time ending after 9 seasons? Sadly, this is true. The silver lining is that we still have two more years and a movie.
The news was revealed by Deadline this morning. Even with Adventure Time ending in 2018, we still have a host of new episodes, specials, miniseries, and a previously announced movie.
“Adventure Time was a passion project for the people on the crew who poured their heart into the art and stories,” said creator Pendleton Ward. “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.”
At the moment, it is still unclear whether this decision was made by Ward, Cartoon Network, or something in-between. With the incredible success the show has seen, we have a hard time believing this was Cartoon Network’s doing. If this was Ward’s decision, all we can do is commend him for creating one of the greatest cartoons for kids and adults to enjoy. Besides, we still have about 60 episodes left with the way things are going.
With Adventure Time ending, we are curious if these means the movie will be releasing before or after its end. The movie was confirmed to be in development by Warner Bros. back in early 2015. How about an update guys?
