Fans of the cult-favorite cartoon Adventure Time rejoice: HBO Max has ordered four new specials of the animated series. A year since Finn and Jake had their last adventure wrapping up 10 seasons on Cartoon Network, HBO Max is now bringing us back to the land of Ooo in four one-hour specials titled Adventure Time: Distant Lands. They will be produced by Cartoon Network Studios with the first two launching on HBO Max in 2020.
“The enchanted world of Adventure Time has mesmerized viewers and critics alike as Finn and Jake right wrongs and battle evil,” said Sarah Aubrey, head of original content, HBO Max. “The addition of these specials to the HBO Max kids and family programming lineup is sure to make kids everywhere say ‘Slam-bam-in-a-can!’”
“Adventure Time was a groundbreaking series and a creative playground for so many talented creative artists,” added Rob Sorcher, Chief Content Officer, Cartoon Network Studios. “Producing Adventure Time: Distant Lands for HBO Max will allow our studio to explore this beloved world in an all-new format.”
HBO Max is AT&T’s new on-demand streaming service that will combine content from HBO, Cinemax, and Warnermedia and will reportedly cost $14.99 a month. The service will launch in the Spring of 2020 and include 10,000+ hours of library content from Warnermedia’s various networks.
