What time is it? Well, it’s almost time for some new Adventure Time!
Anchoring the second of two weeks of new episodes beginning January 23rd, the “Islands” miniseries focuses on the revelations of the season 7 finale and Finn’s search for other humans in the Land of Ooo. Joining Finn during the 8-part series will be Jake the Dog, BMO (yay BMO), and part-human part-cyborg Susan Strong. Also seemingly playing a part in the series is the recently introduced Dr. Gross. Which is awesome, because she was so great.
Watch the teaser below:
I can’t be the only one suspicious about how much Bonnibel knows and excited to see the tension that secrecy might cause.
Adventure Time fans have waited a long time for answers about the rest of humanity, so the expectations are sky high. Add in Susan Strong’s origins and those of the Hyoomans, Finn’s new robo-arm, possible connections between BMO’s creator and Dr. Gross (don’t be surprised), and a lot might happen throughout “Islands.” And if none of that gets you excited (what’s wrong with you???), just remember how good the Stakes series was. That should finish the job.
After a shaky Season 5 and a divisive Season 6, Season 7 was a return to form for Adventure Time. With the recent news that 2018 will see the end of the show, “Islands” will likely play a large role in rocketing Finn and company towards the endgame. Enjoy it while it lasts. Without this show, many of our favorite animated shows would never have existed.
Thanks for the awesome years, Adventure Time. And confirm Bubbline already!
