Cartoon Network's 'Adventure Time' Ending in 2018
“Cartoon Network just announced the impending series finale of Adventure Time, the sci-fi/fantasy post-apocalyptic musical fairy-tale rom-com coming-of-age sitcom epic starring Jake the Dog and Finn the Human.
In an official statement, Cartoon Network promised the final run of Adventure Time episodes will encompass ‘142 half-hours of content,’ which includes new episodes, miniseries, specials, and some mysterious “more.” (By comparison, the complete run of Game of Thrones so far only represents about 120 half-hours of content.)
Created by Pendleton Ward, Adventure Time premiered in 2010 and became a hit for the network, drawing large audiences and earning a raft of awards. The show garnered critical praise and occupied a unique nexus between hip alt-comedy and Comic-Con friendly geekdom, with guest stars including Marc Maron and Ron Perlman.”
