Following its epic fifth and final season, Adult Swim’s four-time Emmy Award-winning animated series Samurai Jack is getting a complete series release on Blu-ray and Digital HD on October 17, 2017 — including awesome featurettes, behind-the-scenes content and special commentary. And that’s not all: Jack fans will also be able to own the fifth season soundtrack this fall, or take in the ultimate screening experience Samurai Jack: The Premiere Movie Event, presented in partnership with Fathom Events.
Samurai Jack: The Complete Series (SRP $112.99, Oct. 17) Blu-ray and Digital box set includes all five seasons of the highly-acclaimed animated series, showcasing 1,364 minutes of high quality animation and never-before-seen bonus features, as well as a one-of-a-kind metal art print created especially for this collector’s item.

Presented by Adult Swim and Fathom Events, Samurai Jack: The Premiere Movie Event will be an exclusive one-night cinema event in theaters across the US on October 16. Offering fans an exclusive experience, the screening will comprise the series’ first season movie remastered in high-definition alongside content from the highly anticipated complete series box set. Additional surprises are anticipated, so be sure to sign up for alerts on the Fathom Events page — tickets go on sale to the general public on Sept. 15.
And the Samurai Jack: Season Five Soundtrack, available for digital download and streaming this fall, features 22 spellbinding, hand-selected tracks produced by celebrated film composer and producer Tyler Bates and composed by Joanne Higginbottom and Dieter Hartmann for the show’s explosive final season.
Created by celebrated animation director Genndy Tartakovsky, Samurai Jack follows a young Samurai after he is sent to the future by the evil wizard, Aku. With the determination to defeat the wizard and undo his destruction, Jack sets off on a daring journey to return to the past and defeat Aku once and for all. The fifth season, which bowed earlier this year, sees Jack finally complete his mission 50 years after the events of the original series.
