Last year, Adult Swim abruptly cancelled The Venture Bros. after seven seasons across 14 years. However, Team Venture is getting a comeback. Adult Swim has announced that the Venture family will return in a new animated movie. It also appears that the film will follow up on the story threads from season 7. Here’s the official synopsis from Adult Swim:
“Doc’s latest invention will either bankrupt the Ventures or launch them to new heights, as Hank searches for himself, Dean searches for Hank, The Monarch searches for answers, and a mysterious woman from their pasts threatens to bring their entire world crashing down on them.”
Additionally, the classic Adult Swim series Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Metalocalypse will be getting animated movies as well. Here’s the description for Aqua Teen Hunger Force‘s film.
“A continuation of the hit animated series, fans will find out what happens next with Frylock, Meatwad and Master Shake, who consider themselves crime fighters, but the truth is they never fight crime.”
Finally, here’s the synopsis for Metalocalypse‘s film:
“The power-hungry TRIBUNAL unveils their secret and deadly “Falconback Project” as the world grows in embattled chaos and the menacing Doomstar breaches the Earth’s atmosphere while the mysterious and twisted dissent of a band member threatens the future of Dethklok. Picking up directly after the heroic rescue of Toki Wartooth: Can Dethklok choose between their egos and the greater good of the world to embark on a gauntlet of dangers that will try their very souls and finally write the song that will be their salvation?”
Adult Swim is producing the three films, however, they will first debut on Blu-ray, DVD, and TVOD. After 90-day windows for each film, they will premiere on Adult Swim and HBO Max. For now, no release dates have been announced.
