Cartoon Network Ends Samurai Jack in Sept. Send-off to include Clone Wars marathon

The final four new episodes of Genndy Tartakovsky’s Emmy Award-winning animated series, Samurai Jack, will air Saturday, Sept. 25, during Cartoon Network’s Toonami block. The new installments will begin airing at 7 p.m. as part of a four-hour special presentation that will also include a marathon of all 20 chapters of Cartoon Network’s micro-series, Star Wars: Clone Wars, which Tartakovsky directed.

Samurai Jack tells the story of a warrior banished to the future by an evil shape-shifting wizard. The title character travels the world, encountering an amazing array of cultures and civilizations as he seeks the portal to send him back to his own time. A man of few words, Jack relies on his mental and physical training as a warrior to help him fend off the evil wizard’s forces.

Star Wars: Clone Wars, nominated this year for an Emmy Award, continues the saga where the live-action feature film Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones left off. Chapters 1-10 first aired on Cartoon Network in Nov. 2003, followed by Chapters 11-20 in March. Tartakovsky is working on an additional series of Star Wars: Clone Wars adventures, which will air on Cartoon Network in March 2005.
