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.

To quote from 'Archer'...

...my second favorite basic cable animated series:


This is great news, for you & Doc and for everyone who loves VB.

Thanks for the news.

We love you, too!

Great news, can I ask though, whether this is two eight episodes stints like seasons 4 and 4.5 were, or two full blown seasons, with with the sixth not even being thought of at this moment.

Will season five be produced and aired in two halves like season four? I certainly hope so.

Thank you -your shows bring light to a dark tunnel

This is great news I had a bad feeling it was your last season. By the way do you guys ever need interns? Media production junior student here in Mississippi would love to work on Venture Brothers (even if it s just getting you guys coffee).
Otherwise fantastic news


2 more seasons of AWESOME!

Been a rough year, boohoo, bit this is the best news so far. Thanks for making my night and keep doing all the fantastic work!

also-please ignore all the bitching from these crybabies...split the seasons however it serves you best, I'll take new VB in any form I can get them!

Hey Jackson, great news on the new seasons! Would you please,PLEASE consider doing another shirt club??

In the position to divulge ANYTHING at all about season 5, regardless of how vague?

If not, can you at least tell me if the shows greatest villain (phantom limb) will have a season 4.2 (awesome story arc) or a season 3 (where the fuck is limb at?) role?

Thank you in advance.

YES, great news! One of the best things about you being on lj is that I get the Venture news before my husband - and so I get to really WOW HIM with all your updates.
