Cartoon Network’s Regular Show to End with Season 8


ATLANTA: The eighth season of the Emmy-winning animated series Regular Show, which is slated to begin airing on Cartoon Network later this month, will be its last.

Regular Show, from creator and executive producer JG Quintel, chronicles the escapades of best friends and groundskeepers Mordecai (Quintel) and Rigby (William Salyers). The eighth and final season of the series will take place entirely in outer space. It is due to debut on Monday, September 26, at 8 p.m., with new episodes airing weeknights through January 2017.

“From JG’s original pitch on post-it notes, through eight successful seasons and more than 250 episodes produced, Regular Show has been one of the most original animated series of this generation, creating indelible characters and signature comedy mayhem laced with heart,” said Rob Sorcher, Cartoon Network’s chief content officer. “Our sincere thanks to this talented crew and cast for their incredible dedication, and I’m proud that they all agreed to go up in space together for one hilarious final journey.”

Quintel added: “Making Regular Show has been so much fun. We got to tell all of the stories we wanted to tell, and making the choice to go out exactly how we want to go out. We’re so proud and excited for people to see how we’re wrapping things up in a big, big way. We’re bringing everything full circle.”
