Bad news, everyone! The Adventure Time cartoon series is coming to an end.
Cartoon Network made the announcement today that the series will come to an end following Season 9 in 2018.
The series was created by Pendleton Ward and debuted in April 2010. It follows Jake the Dog and Finn the Human through the post-apocalyptic land of Ooo.
In a statement regarding the end of the series, Ward said:
"‘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.”During its run, the show has garnered six Emmy Awards and a Peabody award (so far), and has become a cult favorite for its quirky sense of humor, creative storytelling, and charming animation.
The premiere date for the show's eighth season hasn't been set yet, but is expected sometime later this year.
