It’s news that no-one could have prepared for, but Adventure Time is heading back to our screens. Hooray! The much-loved cartoon series is making a comeback, but the super exciting thing here is that we’re not only getting brand-new episodes, but that they’ll also be extra-long episodes. Double hooray!
Migrating from Cartoon Network to the upcoming streaming service HBO Max, the series will see a bit of a rebrand, now being called Adventure Time: Distant Lands. The series will consist of four hour-long episodes, and HBO has even gone and shared not only the episode titles, but also their stories!
If you want to go in as blind as a bat then turn away now, but if you just can’t wait then here are the official episode descriptions:
“‘BMO’ follows the lovable little robot from Adventure Time. When there’s a deadly space emergency in the farthest reaches of the galaxy, there’s only one hero to call, and it’s probably not BMO. Except that this time it is!
“‘Obsidian’ features Marceline & Princess Bubblegum as they journey to the imposing, beautiful Glass Kingdom—and deep into their tumultuous past—to prevent an earthshaking catastrophe.
“‘Wizard City follows Peppermint Butler, starting over at the beginning, as just another inexperienced Wizard School student. When mysterious events at the campus cast suspicion on Pep, and his checkered past, can he master the mystic arts in time to prove his innocence?
“‘Together Again brings Finn and Jake together again, to rediscover their brotherly bond and embark on the most important adventure of their lives.”
Adventure Time: Distant Lands is set to release in 2020, and it seems the episodes’ release will be staggered. ‘BMO’ and ‘Obsidian’ will be released first, followed by ‘Wizard City’ and ‘Together Again’ sometime later.
The new streaming service HBO Max is scheduled for release in spring 2020.
