Cartoon Network USA New Steven Universe Episodes Coming In April 2018
American video-on-demand and live television streaming service – Hulu has announced that new episodes of Steven Universe will be coming to Cartoon Network USA in April this year, the new episodes were confirmed by a tweet from Hulu’s support team after a Hulu customer saw an announcement on the streaming service stating “Steven Universe Returns April 2018”.
The show’s loyal fanbase (especially in the United States) are always anticipating new episodes because the show is now reaching an increasingly critical story point with the Crystal Gems getting more involved in the fight against Homeworld to protect Earth, minor characters such as Lars are now having a more prominent role and also because more info about one of the show’s (now deceased or “shattered”) villains – Pink Diamond has been revealed.
Hulu is partly owned by Time Warner, the ultimate parent company that owns Cartoon Network, so Hulu can be treated as a trusted source of information for premiere dates. Hulu Live TV subscribers can currently watch the first twelve episodes of Steven Universe’s current season – season five.
Hi, Rae! What you're seeing is referring to April 2018 as the date new episodes of season five will begin airing on Cartoon Network. Viewers subscribed to our Live TV service can currently watch the first twelve episodes of season five (https://t.co/O9QhZdLbxw).
