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.

do good things and it comes back to you. awesome. venture bros is one of the only things on tv worth watching

Very good. Thank you TV for for once not disappointing the ever loving shit out of me. You guys are fantastic and deserve to be on the air.

Keep churning out the awesome and we'll keep watching!


Any clue if they are going to (eventually) release all of season 4 in one DVD set or will I have to buy volumes 1 & 2 separately?

I'm very excited to hear about two more seasons. but I have to wonder if Doctor Venture is having to pass up job opportunities now that gas prices make flying that jet to work somewhat expensive.

This news is so good I am almost created a livejournal account just to thank you. However I am so much in need of sleep from school and studying that I will forgo creating an account.

You just ensured that the next two years of my life will not be absolutely miserable. Thank you sir.

By the way is it unhealthy to fall asleep to Venture Brothers DVDs, listening to the commentary several nights a month?

YES! Like Senor Chang, Venture Bros will NEVER DIE!

Yes! Joy and jubilation! Huzzah!

This just made my week. EXCELLENT.
