Samurai Jack Reruns Return To Adult Swim USA From Saturday 14th January
A Cartoon Network original – Samurai Jack will be returning to American television on Adult Swim on Saturday 14th January at 8.30pm ET/PT straight after a brand new episode of Dragon Ball Super. Created by Genndy Tartakovsky, the four-time Emmy-award winning animated series follows a young samurai named “Jack” from feudal Japan who ends up in a dystopian future ruled by an evil shape-shifting demon named Aku.
