Samurai Jack fans, rejoice! The animated action series from the early 2000s that originally aired on Cartoon Network is officially back for a fifth season, and from the looks of the official trailer that was released this morning, it's a whole lot more dark and action-packed than before. 

The new season, which premieres on Saturday, March 11 at 11pm on Adult Swim, takes place 50 years after where the series left off. We still see our hero Jack struggling to find a way to get back to his original time in feudal Japan while battling the legendary villain Aku, but this time, new enemies abound, and our titular character seems to be more downhearted because of the possibility of not being able to ever find a way back to his home.

"It's been 50 years since we saw Samurai Jack and time has not been kind to him," the description of the trailer reads. "Aku has destroyed every time portal and Jack has stopped aging, a side effect of time travel. It seems he is cursed to just roam the land for all eternity."

Watch the full trailer for season 5 of Samurai Jack in the video below, and head over to Adult Swim's website for all the updates.
