After a near-decade of dormancy, Frylock, Master Shake and Meatwad — otherwise known as the Aqua Teen Hunger Force — returned to duty in the feature-length DVD Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm. Betting the future of your IP on exclusive DVD content doesn’t feel wise in the 2020s, but it’s SO on brand for the current leadership at WB.
However….it seems to have paid off? Plantasm was enough of a success that Adult Swim can justify bringing the talking food products back for at least one more legitimate season. Thus we have today’s announcement. Original creators Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro will once again be involved.
As for what to expect…no one knows. An ATHF episode can literally be about anything. What we DO know is that it will be short. The new season will consist of just five episodes. That’s all Old Miser Zaslav was willing to open his change purse and offer. It’s especially cheap when you consider the average cost per episode can’t amount to more than the price of a Happy Meal.
As for Plantasm, the old WB would have thrown it onto HBO Max the very day it hit DVD, but we’ve had to wait until now. It will become available on the service Wednesday, November 8, and it will air on Adult Swim a month later, Sunday, March 12 at midnight.
““Congratulations! You waited just long enough for Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm to be free on the service your parents pay for,” Willis and Maiellaro said in a statement. “I can’t wait for you to discover the project everyone has been talking about, and by everyone, I mean our personal Twitter accounts. There is too much stuff to watch already. Breathe, and focus exclusively on Aqua Teen. Delete everything else. We are thrilled to be making more Aqua Teen Hunger Force episodes for a new generation of fans, building upon the most impressive collection of IP ever assembled. Success is optimal and leads to quality.”
There is currently no estimate for how soon we could be seeing Aqua Teen Hunger Force Season 12.
