It’s a good thing that The Venture Bros. has such high re-watch value, because the wait between seasons can feel interminable. ”The writing is excellent, and the mythology dense. You can’t rush those sorts of things,” we tell ourselves, watching ”All This And Gargantua-2” for the third time that month.
But you can rush the announcement, apparently, as a press release sent out by Adult Swim this morning says that the long-awaited sixth season of The Venture Bros. will premiere on Sunday, January 31, 2016 at midnight ET/PT. Not a special, not a preview. A whole new eight-episode season, the show’s first since 2013. Here’s how Adult Swim describes season 6 in its promotional materials:
Location, Location, Location! Perfectly situated in the heart of New York City, season 6 of The Venture Bros. is a billionaire’s dream come true, offering the discerning buyer top-of-the-line drama and panoramic danger in every direction. Super-scientists, bring your loofah! Relax and unwind from a long day in the lab in your luxurious, spa-like, master bath, where floor-to-ceiling windows offer spectacular views of approaching enemies from every direction. This eight episode, 3 BR, 2 BA stunner comes with its own dedicated robot, plus servants’ quarters for live-in bodyguard.
There’s not much else to say beyond that, except set your DVR, call your friend who has that special brand of mixed salad greens that you like, and prepare your cosplay accordingly.
