Countdown To Wow-Town
The Venture Bros. Season 4 vol. 2 DVD
and The Venture Bros. Complete Season 4 Blu-Ray hit the shelves today!

(But you already knew that.)

And so...

Hello again. I've been promising Big News for a while, but have had to keep it under wraps. Mostly because contracts take a long time to work out (even when all parties agree to their contents) and the PR department* would prefer to be professional and make a proper to-do about the timing and presentation of said Big News.


It just occurred to me that Doc and I mouthed off about our big news all over the DVD commentaries, assuming when we recorded them in November/December that this would all be public knowledge by now. And since our fans seem to enjoy listening to the commentary tracks the day our DVDs come out--and then immediately discussing them on the internet (FIRST!)--this particular cat will soon be out of this particular bag anyway. So who better than this confessed cat person to deliver it safely?

Herewith the cat:

We've recently signed a new contract with adultswim to produce two more seasons of The Venture Bros.

Doc and I officially started writing last week. Though, in truth, we technically started writing season 5 last year when we accidentally brainstormed a handful of (we think) pretty hot new stories while we were writing the season 4 finale. Our goal is to have enough scripts to comfortably begin pre-production by June.

But wait...that's not all!

Our contract also includes a long-form (60-90 min.) Venture Bros. special. Don't ask me when we'll make it, what it's going to be about, or whether it'll be on TV or direct-to-DVD, because we don't have a clue yet. Nevertheless: good news!

Tell them what else they get, Jackson...

We've been secretly working on an 11 minute Venture Bros. special for the past couple of months. A sort of light-hearted, one-off little aperitif we're producing and animating entirely in-house at Titmouse Studios in NY and LA. It will premiere some time this summer.

I think that's enough for you to chew on for a while. More news later as it develops. Now go buy some DVDs or something...

We Love You,


*Apologies to the PR department for the whole cat thing. And also for incorrectly referring to you as the "Puerto Rican Department"** in several emails. I have since been informed that PR stands for "Public Relations."

**Apologies to Puerto Ricans, and Puerto Rico. Please disregard all those emails. They were intended for the Public Relations department at adultswim.

you guys rock! thank for busting your butts, and for signing contracts, and for producing the awesomest show ever.

Might buy a Blu-Ray player just for this release.

Thank you for such excellent news!

We are so relieved to know that there is more Venture action on the way!

I am praying for a 90 minute special and will gladly pony up the money if that requires a direct to DVD release.

I remain...

Murderously Yours,


Well, this is exactly the kind of news I like to wake up to.

Hooray for more Venture Bros.!

Best news to accompany my breakfast yet. Hoorah!

You totally made my day! We all love you guys too!


I'm very happy for you guys, and for me!

Congrats on the new deal!!

Actually - 'congrats' to us fans because we're winners in this deal, as well.

I wonder if it's too soon for me to start smelling that Emmy for you guys for 'animated, over one hour' category.. Wait.. that's not an Emmy.. that's burnt toast... I'm smelling burnt toast but nobody's making toast.. Isn't that a sign of me having a stroke.. It smells way more like burning toast than an emmy right now... yep, I'm probably having a stroke.. gotta go.

I was thinking the exact same thing. Somebody needs to make this happen this year. Considering this show has almost universal praise, it's about time they get some damn professional recognition.


Holy cat shit on a hot tin roof...This is fantastic news! More ways for me to spend my money love!

Congratulations on your continued success. I hope you guys had a chance to enjoy a nice vacation or two before you dived back into season five.


(using 'problem' because it's the only venture bros icon I have)

We would have been delighted with just the movie. Adding 2 seasons and a short to that is beyond amazing.
