After an eight-year hiatus, the adult animated series ‘Aqua Teen Hunger Force’ is making a comeback for a twelfth season on Adult Swim and HBO Max. Following the release of the film ‘Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm, on February 8, 2023, there will be five new episodes of the comedy.
“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,” original creators Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro said in a press statement.
“Congratulations!” the duo continued. “You waited just long enough for ‘Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm’ to be free on the service your parents pay for. 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.”
While not confirmed, it assumed that the original cast consisting of Carey Means (“The Brak Show”) as Frylock, Dana Snyder (“Squidbillies”) as Master Shake, and co-creator Dave Willis (“Squidbillies,” “Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell”) as Meatwad are returning.
Originally launched in 2001, the first eleven seasons would be released between that year and 2015. In 2005 IGN placed the series as number 25 on their list of Top 25 Animated series for adults and in 2009 on they listed the series as the 39th best in the Top 100 Best Animated TV Shows.
The first movie based on the show would be released in 2007 titled ‘Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters.’ At the time, it became the 8th highest-grossing R-rated animated film.
The show would be canceled in 2015 despite protests from Willis, Maiellaro, and their fans.
