One of the bittersweet announcements at San Diego Comic-Con this year was the Series Finale date for “Adventure Time,” the long-running series that has captivated audiences over the last eight years. Yes it’s very sad to think that Jake and Finn won’t be making new episodes but we have a really good feeling that the show will end on a spectacular note. We already have quite a lot of comics, specials, and an entire trunk of Adventure Time goodies that we love to collect, so we won’t be saying goodbye empty handed this fall.
The show hosted a panel for fans at SDCC this afternoon and the network has set the big sendoff for early September. The show has been an outstanding success for Cartoon Network, with over 10 seasons and 278 episodes of magic, wonder, and joy. If you want to set a reminder to catch the adventure when it airs, the “Adventure Time” series finale will premiere on Monday, September 3rd. Then a day later, the “Adventure Time: The Final Seasons DVD” (which will include Seasons 8, 9, 10) will hit shelves. You can preview the final chapter in the trailer below.
Luckily for all of us, the show will live on in our hearts and through online streaming. If you need to catch up on a few seasons before the big ending, or if you want to grab your own adventuring crew for a marathon before the end, you can find Season 1-10 on Hulu.
Calling it “The Ultimate Adventure,” Cartoon Network put together the trailer above to get fans excited for the new episodes. We’re sure in true Finn and Jake fashion, it will be an ultimate adventure indeed; but also a little sad; and a lot of awesome.
