TruTV Asia Samurai Jack Season 5 Premieres 2nd June

TruTV Asia will premiere season 5 of Samurai Jack on Friday 2nd June, with new episodes airing every Friday at 11.45pm Singapore Time/10.45pm Jakarta Time. The events in season five take place fifty years after the events of season 4. With all the known time portals destroyed, Jack is stuck in the future and has lost all hope of trying to get back to his own time, Jack eventually forms an unlikely alliance with a former enemy, finds his sword and prepares to defeat Aku – the shapeshifting master of darkness for one final time.

Samurai Jack season 5 is produced by Cartoon Network Studios and Williams Street for Adult Swim. The show’s creator, Genndy Tartakovsky returned to Cartoon Network Studios to write and direct the final season. Season five has a mature tone compared to the previous child-friendly seasons that aired on Cartoon Network.

Toonami Asia promoted the new season on their Twitter account, Samurai Jack season five would have been a good fit for Toonami Asia, but international versions of Toonami are more suited to younger audiences compared to the American programming block of the same name, so instead, its airing on TruTV Asia which is also owned by Toonami’s owners – Turner. In the UK and Ireland, Samurai Jack airs on FOX’s Adult Swim block every Thursday night at midnight (less than a week after the U.S. premiere) and in Latin America, Samurai Jack premiered on Turner-owned I.Sat this month.

The final episode of Samurai Jack will premiere on Adult Swim USA’s Toonami programming block this Saturday at 11pm ET/PT, the penultimate episode will air on FOX UK tomorrow night (18/05/2017) at midnight (technically Friday morning at 12am).
