Cartoon Network Announces Season Two Premiere of New Hit Series Adventure Time
Emmy(R)-Nominated Series Airs October 11th at 8 p.m. ET/PT
Cartoon Network announced today the Season Two premiere of its hit series Adventure Time is slated to air on Monday, October 11th at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The original series, which debuted in February of this year, is the highest rated new animated series of 2010 to date with boys 2-11* and received a Primetime Emmy(R) nomination in the category of Outstanding Short-Form Animation Program.
Adventure Time introduced viewers to unlikely heroes Finn & Jake, buddies who traverse the mystical Land of Ooo and encounter its colorful inhabitants. The best of friends, our heroes always find themselves in the middle of heart-pounding escapades. Finn, a silly kid with an awesome hat, and Jake, a brassy dog with a big, kind heart, depend on each other through thick and thin.
From the mind of creator Pendleton Ward, Ooo is a land built for adventure. Teeming with imposing mountains, lush green plains, accessible forests, ubiquitous prairies and winding rivers, the cities and towns are filled with bizarre characters in need of unique assistance. Whether it’s saving Princess Bubblegum, defeating zombie candy, mocking the “oxy-moronic” Ice King, or rocking out with undead music wiz Marceline the Vampire Queen, with Finn & Jake it’s always Adventure Time.
Fans of the show have enjoyed an immersive online experience on the official show site http://www.itsadventuretime.com, which includes original Adventure Time games Sound Castle and Righteous Quest 1 & 2, which have generated more than 26 million gameplays since launch. In Righteous Quest, fans play both Finn & Jake as they traverse three levels set in different areas of the Land of Ooo. The game features funny powers, enemies, storylines, secret unlockables and multiple paths for extended play. Finn & Jake have also appeared in Cartoon Network’s massively multiplayer online game FusionFall and online robot fighting game TKO.
