Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time to End in 2018


ATLANTA: The hit animated series Adventure Time, which has been airing on Cartoon Network since 2010, is slated to conclude with its ninth season in 2018.

Created by Pendleton Ward, Adventure Time follows a boy named Finn and his best friend, Jake the Dog, as they protect the citizens of the Land of Ooo from various enemies. On its official Twitter account, Cartoon Network said: “CN is proud of the world created over 142 half-hours of Adventure Time, and we can’t wait to watch the journey continue over the next two years!”

The voice cast for Adventure Time is led by Jeremy Shada and John DiMaggio. The show is co-produced by Frederator Studios and Cartoon Network Studios. It has won six Primetime Emmy Awards, including this year in the category of outstanding individual achievement in animation.

Adventure Time changed the definition of what a kids’ TV series could be, and it’s had a resounding impact upon popular culture around the world,” noted Rob Sorcher, the chief content officer for Cartoon Network. “Cartoon Network Studios is proud to have brought together this group of brilliant artists and animators who helped make Adventure Time one of the most critically acclaimed TV series of a generation.”

Ward added: “Adventure Time was a passion project for the people on the crew who poured their heart into the art and stories. We tried to put into every episode something genuine and telling from our lives, and make a show that was personal to us, and that had jokes too! I’m really happy that it connected with an audience for so long. It’s a special thing, I think.”
