Cult animated series Samurai Jack is returning after more than 10 years off air.

Created by Genndy Tartakovsky, the series originally ran on Cartoon Network for 52 episodes between 2001 and 2004 before being axed. It followed the adventures of a time-displaced Samurai on a mission to defeat a tyrannical demon called Aku.

Now it has been announced that Samurai Jack will return in 2016 for a new season on Adult Swim, Cartoon Network's late-night sister network. Watch a teaser below.



Creator Genndy Tartakovsky is also returning as the show's executive producer. Adult Swim has yet to announce when season five of Samurai Jack will debut, but the series will air as part of the network's Saturday night 'Toonami' programming block.

Meanwhile, Nickelodeon has recently announced that one of its own classic animated series, Hey Arnold!, will return in a TV movie in 2016.
