Samurai Jack is… wait for it… samurai back.

The beloved Cartoon Network show will be returning in 2016, after over a decade off the air. Originally launched in 2001, Samurai Jack was an animated throwback to epic ‘70s samurai movies, and lasted 52 episodes before ending its run in 2004 (and achieving cult-classic status).

No word on the return date, but creator Genndy Tartakovsky is on board, and Adult Swim will air new episodes in its ‘Toonami’ block of shows next year. An incredibly short trailer was released on Wednesday (Dec. 2) — watch it below:
