For those of you waiting on season V of Venture Bros. I have one new bit of information for you. The premiere, hour long episode (June 2nd at midnight, be there or be square) is called “What Color Is Your Cleansuit?” I made sure to confirm it with series creator Jackson Publick (just in case it was a working title), so feel free to tell all your friends, relatives, co-workers and random people on the street. Tweet it, Facebook it, uh, Tumbl it? Pinterest it. What is even the verb for Pinterest? Anyway, get it out there!
In related news, Adult Swim has revamped the Venture Bros. section of their site, which includes the usual videos and clips, but also a swank new Relationship Action Map which you can use to figure out which character relates to others. It’s also almost certain to get more and more obsolete as season five progresses, but for now it should have all the info you need.
Hot on the heels of the last two May 19th promos being removed, Adult Swim has put together two replacement promos using brand new footage. Season 5 is now Season V (pronounced ‘vee’). Sure, why not? The first promo lists off a million characters who may or may not appear in the new season and the second one is more sizzle reel in nature. You heard me.
And the second one:
Remember, season 5 starts at midnight on Sunday, June 2nd. That’s technically June 3rd, just so there’s no confusion, but you’ll be ending your June 2nd with it. Unless you work a late shift somewhere. Then it’s your morning cartoons. Either way.
IGN has an eight-or-so minute video up that summarizes the entire series, narrated by Henchman 21, aka Gary. Needless to day if you aren’t caught up on all the episodes you shouldn’t watch it. However if you are caught up but have just forgotten everything (or just need a refresher) then you should check it out:
According to a post over on Adult Swim’s Facebook page the season premiere of Venture Bros. season 5 has been delayed two weeks until June 2nd. While they don’t give a specific reason I’m sure we can all agree it’s because Jackson, Doc and company are hard at work on the show and working late nights to bring everyone a quality production. So let’s try not to be too annoyed! Just think of what you can do with those extra two weeks. You could learn a new craft, like basket weaving or pottery. You could learn an instrument. You could paint a self-portrait. See, that wasn’t so bad, was it?
As the saying goes: Venture Bros. season 5 premieres on Sunday, June 2nd at midnight (eastern/pacific) on Adult Swim.
