Samurai Jack is an action-adventure animated TV show created by Genndy Tartakovsky. The animated series originally aired on Cartoon Network from August 2001 to September 2004. It lasted for 52 episodes across 4 seasons. It ended without any conclusion to its overarching story though. Thankfully, the show was revived for a fifth and final season in March 2017. The story centers around the titular character, Jack, an unnamed samurai, and his quest to defeat the ultimate evil named Aku. He fights Aku with a magical katana that is capable of cutting through anything. Just as he was about to deal the final blow to defeat Aku, he is sent forward in time. He wakes up to a dystopian future ruled by the tyrannical Aku. Armed with nothing but his katana, Jack goes on a quest to go back in time to stop Aku before he takes control over the world.
The show has definitely seen its fair share of troubles over the years. The fifth story-concluding season took 12 years to happen and there were many times that it almost didn't. We, as fans of the show, were glad that it got its long-overdue conclusion though. If you've yet to watch Samurai Jack, you should definitely do so as it's one of the best classic cartoon shows ever.
