If it seems like it’s been forever since The Venture Bros. was on Adult Swim, it’s because five years can feel like an eternity. It didn’t help that season 7 ended in 2018 with no sense of closure. The series’ executive producers, Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer, couldn’t resist running a homage to Darkman as Hank Venture abandoned his family and went a little crazy after discovering that his brother, Dean, had slept with Hank’s girlfriend, Sirena. And judging from the first preview scene from the upcoming Venture Bros. animated movie, it looks the story is going to pick up from that point.
In this newly released clip from The Venture Bros.: Radiant is the Blood of the Baboon Heart, Hank’s disappearance has attracted the attention of his former bodyguard, Brock Sampson, and the thinly-veiled S.H.I.E.L.D. parody, O.S.I.. While Dean and his father, Rusty Venture, await news from Brock, it appears that O.S.I. may already be too late to save Hank.
Why is the movie called Radiant is the Blood of the Baboon Heart? Honestly, we have no idea. Regardless, the description of the film does reinforce the idea that it will act as a true series finale for the show.
