Adult Swim news: what to look forward to
Here's what's coming up on Adult Swim:
Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, as mentioned previously, has received an order for thirty new episodes.
Moral Orel has also been picked up for a third season (which I already knew, but I was sworn to secrecy until it was officially announced). Also, the latter half of the second season kicks off this Sunday.
Also, look for new seasons of Venture Bros, Robot Chicken, Boondocks (finally!), Assy McGee, Frisky Dingo, Metalocalypse, Squidbillies, Aqua Teen Hunger Force (fifth season in 2008) and Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law*.
Lucy, Daughter of the Devil, whose pilot has appeared a few times already, has also finally received a full episode order. The series was created by Loren Bouchard of Home Movies. Unfortunately, another pilot, Kogarth of Barbaria, was not picked up, at least not according to the latest news.
The live-action internet series Gemberling will make its Adult Swim debut as Fat Guy Stuck in Internet on Sunday, May 13. Other pilots airing that evening include the aforementioned Drinky Crow Show and That Crook'd Sip, along with Superjail and Let's Fish. These pilots will also appear on Adult Swim Fix on May 10, if you want to catch them before they hit the TV. It's also worth pointing out that the fate of certain Adult Swim shows rests on how well the pilots do, so do your part and watch them, dag nabbit.
Oh yeah, and there will be seven nights of Adult Swim programming starting this year. Neat.
*Despite what The Hollywood Reporter says, Harvey Birdman is actually just finishing off its remaining episodes and not getting a new season. Thanks to those readers who pointed this out.
