Adventure Time to End After Season 9

Finn and Jake’s Adventure Time is coming to an end.

Cartoon Network on Thursday announced that the long-running series about a boy and his canine best friend will wrap after Season 9, Deadline reports.

The Emmy- and Peabody Award-winning series is currently in its seventh season, and will continue to air through 2018. It has been a staple on the basic cable network since its debut in April 2010, and at the conclusion of its run it will have aired 142 half-hour installments.

Adventure Time was a passion project for the people on the crew who poured their heart into the art and stories,” said creator Pendleton Ward in a statement. “We tried to put into every episode something genuine and telling from our lives, and make a show that was personal to us, and that had jokes too! I’m really happy that it connected with an audience for so long. It’s a special thing, I think.”

Adventure Time changed the definition of what a kids’ TV series could be, and it’s had a resounding impact upon popular culture around the world,” added Cartoon Network CCO Rob Sorcher. “Cartoon Network Studios is proud to have brought together this group of brilliant artists and animators who helped make Adventure Time one of the most critically acclaimed TV series of a generation.”

    My family has been following Finn, Jake & all the A.T. characters since my son was a little guy…. This will be a sad departure but I hope they will do it with great style & story.

    If they’re glad to have made something so good, then why on earth are they cancelling it!?
    First Steven Universe is announced to be going away, now Adventure Time!
    Cartoon Network is digging their own grave!

    Yes I’m super bummed! This show is great. I’m 36 my husband 39. We watch new episodes with our kids and re-runs late at night. He have a black cat named Marcy/Marcaline. From toys to clothing, to purchase on iTunes to constant streaming on hulu, we support this show on all levels and 2 years is not enough. I get it, Finn will be 18 but… Obtw it better not end as him waking up and it’s a dream, that’s been done way too much

  7. Aries says:

    Please don’t ever cancel this show I and others love it so much keep it going please.

  8. Scott says:

    Don’t be sad the show is ending. You wouldn’t want to live forever, until everyone you knew, including your grandchildren, were gone. Just like with each of our lives, Adventure
    Time will have a long and meaningful existence, and we should make the most of what it is. Also, if they conclude the story, what else would there be to tell?

    Cartoon network needs to pull it lips out of it own butt and cancel the actual bad shows it has and keep good ones like adventure time.

    Just like anything else” not cookie cutter nonsence” it gets axed! I think its sad that anything that actually goes outside the normal shlock of kids toobs always and i mean always gets the axe, why! And if its soooo great and garnered so much attention and awards is it being cancelled? Maybe whomever is in charge needs to go and someone with a younger mindset needs the job because this is happening way too much, i mean cancel AT and bring back an awful , really awful power puff girks! Yeah pathetic and sad because now instead of childrens imaginations being fueled they are being fuzzed over with same ole same ole mind numbing crap. Great job!

      This is as bad as when that asshat before the current president of CN cancelled all animation and tried to make it a reality channel

    This show has so much hidden meaning behind everything. Everyone i know thinks it’s just some stupid kids show but they don’t see or know the hidden meanings and the back story. Like the great mushroom war meaning world war 3 and how there’s a big gaping hole in the earth from the atomic bombs you can see in the begining credits. How half the world is mutated from radiation and the other half is nature trying to mend itself. Finn thought he was the last human until recently in season 8 where he finally met his mother who had integrated herself into a computer to preserve her mental state and to save and control the remaining humans on their island. I’ve been fully engrossed in this show as if I were a part of their world. It amazes me how you can make someone think they’re watching a children’s show at first and then have 40 year old adults enjoying it as well because aside from the wild jokes goofy language and bright colors the underlying plotline is very in-depth as well as character production and evolution. My heart will break when this show finally ends just the same as when I finish my favorite books because you get invested and involved and you feel like you’re part of it like you Know the characters… But they will all still be there fellow AT lovers. If you ever feel that deep nostalgia for your AT family the episodes will always just be a couple clicks away and you can once again be immersed in their world.. farewell Finn and Jake… See you in one more season.
    Love always,
    Julia

    The AT universe will live on forever! Fans of past, present and future will help it live on, as it continues to inspire and evolve through their interpretations and own creations. I am as devastated as any one who is familiar with this show, to know that this animated “kids” television show will come to an end, as it has meant far more to me than any other television show I have ever watched. Of course I have other shows that I love for various aspects such as comedy or drama, yet somehow this show (depending on the episode) incubuses them all. In just one episode you can find yourself go through the entire range of human emotions. Adventure Time allows the lesser developed to simply enjoy and appreciate the visual extravaganza buffet that it is and its comedic randomness, with a pinch of slapstick toilet jokes, (whilst LOLing as I type thinking of episodes gone by). Yet any one of age beyond the supposed “target” who gives this a chance will see simply that this is a show about life. Living life, ending life, staying alive and being alive and how to do it all! IT embraces the good and let’s you taste the finer things, however it will not shy away, when as all things, they come to a not so pleasant end. Those whom have been involved with this no doubt masterpiece, I salute you – I cannot thank you enough!

    I do not want it to end, but I know it must, as you’ve taught me in the past. Season 9 – I await your birth and when I must lay you and all those who have come before you to rest. Oh – you better make sure there is a complete boxset of this!!!
    Signed,

    Noooo whyy!!!!!!!😢

  17. Car says:

    Cartoon Network is so lame now, cancelling the good shows. They play Amazing World of Gumball and Teen Titans entirely too much. Why can’t AT (even reruns) take some of those slots? Then, they keep coming out with new shows that go away after a month because of TT and AWOG. I hate CN now.

  18. Ediana says:
