About Samurai Jack
Samurai Jack is an American animated television series created by Genndy Tartakovsky for Cartoon Network. Samurai Jack tells the story of a young prince from feudal Japan, whose father acquired a magical katana that he used to defeat and seal the shape-shifting demon named Aku. Having foreseen that Aku would eventually break free, the Emperor sent his son to travel the world and train his mind and body before returning years later to Japan as an adult. After taking his father’s katana, the prince challenges Aku to a duel and defeats him. But Aku creates a time portal before the prince can deal the final blow, sending his opponent into the distant future with anticipation that he would be able to amass sufficient power to deal with the samurai by that time.

Samurai Jack won 4 Primetime Emmy Awards, 6 Annie Awards and 1 OIAF Award, as well as eight additional nominations. All four seasons have been released on DVD by Warner Home Video.

About Season 5
It’s been 50 years since we saw Samurai Jack and time has not been kind to him. Aku has destroyed every time portal and Jack has stopped aging, a side effect of time travel. It seems he is cursed to just roam the land for all eternity.
