Cartoon Network's Adventure Time will come to an end with its ninth season in 2018. The end of the favorite cartoon about a human named Finn and his dog Jake and their adventures in the land of Ooo was announced by the network on Thursday.
“Adventure Time was a passion project for the people on the crew who poured their heart into the art and stories,” said creator Pendleton Ward in a statement. “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.”
First appearing on television in 2007, Adventure Time's massive popularity extended to comic books, with BOOM! Studios publishing multiple related titles each month.
The animated show is expected to return with its eighth season later this year, though no release date has been announced.
