Team Venture is Go.
I have just returned home from the Adult Swim "Upfronts" (and the ensuing bar crawls and requisite, hangover-preventing pizza parlor visit) and so it is official...The Venture Bros. has been picked up for another season of 13 episodes! Having been forced to sit on this information for a week or two, it's nice to tell you all finally.

On top of that, it was good seeing the Adult Swim folks again, the other creators, and enjoying the free crap on hand--everything from the recently ubiquitous panini (Italy's trendy answer to the sandwich) to some sort of Adult Swim messenger bag/tote bag hybrid to Meatwad stress-relieving rubber balls. Also, there was a big, gay, blue bunny-man, who is no stranger to the downtown party scene but I never expected to see him at a network presentation designed to attract advertisers. Oh, and there were free frisbees, one of which I almost hit someone with, for which I (again) apologize profusely. I have to admit, though, that I missed The Rapture--they played last year's Upfronts

Anyhoo...we're still working out the kinks of the production schedule and stuff (and we've yet to receive the 2005 Saturn station wagon we demanded during negotiations--complete with illuminated license plate frames and Astrobase Go! logo on the hood) but Doc and I plan to start writing next week. Officially, anyway--unofficially we've already filled many a page of our respective Moleskine notebooks with story ideas and "bits". Once we have 4-6 scripts done we'll start animation production and, with any luck, the first episodes should start coming back from Korea by late fall/early winter...which means they'll begin airing toward the end of the first quarter of 2006 most likely (but don't quote me on that). I certainly wish we could get them out there sooner, but apparently thousands of drawings arranged in a series to simulate motion take some time to make.

Ah, I can almost hear the complaints of "it's not as good as last year!" already, fueled by a year's worth of reruns...

Doc and I of course thank you all for all of your support over the past few months. There's no doubt that the deluge of posts to the Adult Swim message boards in response to the "should we renew Venture Bros.?" cards raised a few eyebrows down in Atlanta, and the messages you've all sent via this journal, the website and the boards have reddened our faces.

Oh yeah, and the Astrobase Go! t-shirts are officially sold out...so thanks for buying them all!



Thank you sir, for providing us with a reason to watch Cartoon Network (well, besides Clone Wars, but it will be long finished by 2006).

that sir, is the best news I've heard all month. I'm glad the AS people came to their senses, though I wish it had been much sooner.

Now, on a completely different note, I would like to mention the distinct lack of giant squid, octopuses, or really any cephalopod related material, characters, or situations in the Venture Brothers series to date. To me, nothing says superscience like a giant glowing squid wrapping its tentacles around.. you know.. things.

Think about it.

And congratulations!

That is some great news. Glad Adult Swim didn't drop the ball on this one. Looking forward to finding out what happened to the Venture Brothers in about a years time!

this is great news. congratulations! just knowing that the wait will be rewarded makes it all worthwhile. go team venture!

congrats jackson and doc! we all cannot wait for season 2!


So another season of Venture Bros, and my Astrobase GO! shirt is a collector's item? How much better can my day get?!

Wow, this is the smartest thing [as] has done since... well, ever (not counting premiering venture bros). Good job guys.

All good for season 2!! You've got my vote for president.

Yay! And more Dr. Girlfriend, please!

I LOVE YOU SO! I'm so happy, now that the cruel knot of unknowing and worry in my tummy is officially gone and I feel so much better knowing there's more to come!
And congratz on selling all those Astro Base shirts...I feel super cool wearing mine now, especially knowing that hey, I'm wearing an awesome shirt that they don't make anymore! On a side note, you should totally make some Scrotal Saftey Commission shirts!!
Season 2...and season 1 dvds...so far away it seems, but I'm sure they'll be worth the wait.
I love you and Doc and Mike so much....thank you so much for this awesome show...and please keep it coming! <3

Scrotal Saftey Commission shirts!!

That would be the bomb, I could just see the people at works expression to that he he, and I could reply "What? It's educational" *evil grin*

Did you ever know that you're my hero? Never doubted renewal for a minute. Congrats!!

YES!!! Definitely looking forward to seeing more of Team Venture!


here's to the astrowagon

Jackson Publick? Hanging out with Scotty the Blue Bunny? And he's doing more.. astro.. stuff?
Colour me pleased.

Congrats! This is great news. I can't wait for season two! =D

As the Terran marines in Starcraft are often given to say, "Outstanding!"

Hurray! Best news all week.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Anyway, can't wait until those new episodes!

Mr. Otaku Senzuri sends his warmest regards...

Tonight, David Bowie and I shall drink a toast of warm panda milk in your honor. Congrats!

Oh, and by the way--Bowie tells me he liked your show from the very first time he saw the pilot. But then he always was a trendsetter.
