Adult Swim Cancels The Venture Bros. After Seven Seasons
Earlier this month, fans of The Venture Bros. shared the rumor that the series had been cancelled after seven seasons on Adult Swim. However, there was still a glimmer of hope until series co-creator Christopher McCulloch a.k.a. Jackson Publick confirmed the news on Twitter.
Unfortunately, it’s true: #VentureBros has been canceled. We got the highly disappointing news a few months ago, while we were writing what would have been season 8. We thank you, our amazing fans, for 17 years of your kind (and patient) attention. And, as always, We Love You.

James Urbaniak, the actor who voiced Dr. Rusty Venture, also shared his response on Twitter.
So, as it must to all, cancellation has come for The Venture Bros. The pilot aired 17 years ago, which means the show was almost old enough to vote. It was one of the great gifts of my life & career. The fans were, quite simply, the best. Thank you, everybody. Go. Team. Venture! pic.twitter.com/MPMAvWS6Z4

In response to the fan outcry, Adult Swim’s official account weighed in and claimed that the network wants to continue the story with co-creators McCulloch and Doc Hammer.
We also want more Venture Bros. and have been working with Jackson and Doc to find another way to continue the Venture Bros. story.

The easiest way to continue the series would have been to finish the eighth season, or simply not cancel the series. Regardless, the Venture Bros. may eventually return in some form.
