Back in September, we learned that Genndy Tartakovsky wouldn’t be part of Hotel Transylvania 3 if Sony Pictures Animation decided to continue the franchise he began (and they already have it set for release on September 22, 2018, along with an animated series in the works too).

Adult Swim has just announced that the beloved animated series Samurai Jack will be making a comeback on Toonami sometime in 2016 and Tartakovsky will be back as executive producer. Christmas has definitely come early. Read More »
