When Cartoon Network announced that their animated, fan-favorite series, Adventure Time would be coming to an end after season 9 in 2018, a collective gasp arose from the ether of Geekdom. Series creator, and Guru of The Land of Ooo, Pendleton Ward had this to say:
“Adventure Time was a passion project for the people on the crew who poured their heart into the art and stories. We tried to put into every episode something genuine and telling from our lives and make a show that was personal to us and that had jokes, too! I’m really happy that it connected with an audience for so long. It’s a special thing, I think.”
However, when they also announced that season six of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning series was coming to Blu-ray and DVD on October 11th, those same fans rejoiced and screamed “Oh…MY…GLOB!.”
The highly-anticipated release will feature all 43 episodes from the popular, award-winning series’ sixth season plus bonus content. This release will come packaged in a custom slipcase themed after one of the show’s main characters, Lumpy Space Princess. It’s a must-own release that fans and collectors won’t want to miss! Adventure Time: The Complete Sixth Season will retail for $39.99 SRP for the Blu-ray™ and $34.98 SRP for the standard DVD edition.
