    The original episodes on on-demand services (like iTunes, Hulu and YouTube via CartoonNetworkEps) are now branded under Adult Swim, rather than Cartoon Network.

    Old cover on Hulu:

    So I guess this means we won't be seeing Jack on CN or Boomerang anytime soon, at least not in the US. It pretty much went the Space Ghost Coast to Coast route with the first episodes premiering on CN, while the later ones being on Adult Swim.

    Since the new season is more mature and now premieres on AS, it makes sense that they would brand everything Samurai Jack for AS instead of CN.

    Yeah, I'm not too surprised that they're associating the original series for Adult Swim now. Given that the new series is going to be more intense with its violence and airing on Adult Swim, it makes sense to not put Samurai Jack under the Cartoon Network logo. I doubt it would have aired on the current Cartoon Network anyway.

    Jack wearing that demon mask was great. I could watch 30 mins of that.

    A detail I've noted.....Jack's sword seems nowhere to be found in any prerelease media. It's not that he isn't using it, he seems to not have it. So was it lost.....or cast aside?

    Ever since the trailer came out people have been asking 'where's the sword?' The only time we even seen it is in a teaser where it's raining and Jack's holding it.

    Via this, looks like Jack gets a Wednesday night encore at 10pm as of the 15th and repeating later at 2:30am. Additionally, for the 11th in that same link they still have a repeat in the 8:30pm spot. Here I'd thought 8:30 would go to KOTH or everything from 9-11:30 brought up 8:30-11. Until we have better updates I wonder if it'll just be for that week or if they'll do so for just the 10 weeks. Either way we're getting an action show mid-week as early as 10pm - another instance like Jack airing Saturdays at 11 hadn't happened in years, and for 10pm the last time was when CN still regularly had the hour.. I also wonder if that 8:30 spot will stay repeats of Jack or become another additional encore spot. TBH I'd like it again to be another encore spot since the first 52 had played plenty, and this gives this show very good treatment for again just a 10 week period.

    Also, the roman numeral for 53 is "LIII", but that link lists the first new episode as "XCII" which is 92.

    ...whoa, whoa, whoa...I thought this was the first time Jack had aired in the evenings since 2008?

    ...I guess there was the 2014 airing of Samurai Jack on Toonami, but c'mon...that was in the 4:00 AM to 5:30 AM slots...(Jack airing at 5:30 AM is practically "early riser" material for regular CN...)

    According to this, it seems it will continue into the following week. That site isn't affiliated with Adult Swim, but it cites official XML sources.

    Oh yeah, Boomerang...

    Sorry, it's just that in my head, this is the return of Toonami 2006-2008 (aside from that whole "Tom 4.0" thingy...). In other words, this is THE RETURN OF TOONAMI IN PRIMETIME!!! In my head, anyway...

    I just checked the schedule and it seems the classic episodes are off the schedule starting next weekend.

    It makes sense, they probably had those there to built up the hype for the show.
