HBO MAX Orders More “Adventure Time”
Last week, HBO Max set the historic deal with Studio Ghibli but the streamer has now ordered more specials to air in 2020.
Adventure Time produced by Cartoon Network Studios is set to produce four one-hour episodes. The special is approximately named Adventure Time: Distant Lands. The series, created by Pendleton Ward and produced by executive producer Adam Muto concluded its ten-season run, back in September 2018.
Sarah Aubrey commented:
“The enchanted world of ‘Adventure Time’ has mesmerized viewers and critics alike as Finn and Jake right wrongs and battle evil,” said Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max in a statement. “The addition of these specials to the HBO Max kids and family programming lineup is sure to make kids everywhere say ‘Slam-bam-in-a-can.’”
The first two specials will be called “BMO” and “Obsidian”. Rob Sorcher shared his thoughts on this epic series.
“’Adventure Time’ was a groundbreaking series and a creative playground for so many talented creative artists,” said Rob Sorcher, chief content officer at Cartoon Network Studios. “Producing ‘Adventure Time: Distant Lands’ for HBO Max will allow our studio to explore this beloved world in an all-new format.”
Deadline reports that HBO Max revives The Boondock. The network has also got a deal to be the home for the children educational Sesame Street.
