More than ten years after its cancellation, it has today been announced that Cartoon Network’s cult chanbara action series Samurai Jack will return to Toonami in 2016.

Few details have yet been revealed on what form the revived series will take, but it has been confirmed that creator Genndy Tartakovsky will return as executive producer.

Originally running for four seasons from 2001 to 2004, Samurai Jack is the story of a warrior-prince from feudal Japan, displaced through time to a dystopian future earth, where he battles to find a way back to his own era and prevent the evil conquest of his nemesis, the demon lord Aku.
