Jackson Publick, one of the show-runners for the Venture Bros., has posted on his blog news that the Venture Bros. show has renewed its contract with Adult Swim for two more seasons, in addition to a special 60 to 90 minute special.
We’ve recently signed a new contract with adultswim to produce two more seasons of The Venture Bros.
Doc and I officially started writing last week. Though, in truth, we technically started writing season 5 last year when we accidentally brainstormed a handful of (we think) pretty hot new stories while we were writing the season 4 finale. Our goal is to have enough scripts to comfortably begin pre-production by June.
But wait…that’s not all!
Our contract also includes a long-form (60-90 min.) Venture Bros. special. Don’t ask me when we’ll make it, what it’s going to be about, or whether it’ll be on TV or direct-to-DVD, because we don’t have a clue yet. Nevertheless: good news!
Tell them what else they get, Jackson…
We’ve been secretly working on an 11 minute Venture Bros. special for the past couple of months. A sort of light-hearted, one-off little aperitif we’re producing and animating entirely in-house at Titmouse Studios in NY and LA. It will premiere some time this summer.
We’ve been left in limbo for quite some time over the fate of the show, so its great to hear this news. The Powet staff are big fans and look forward to the continuation of this series.
