Whose blood do we think that is drenching the master swordsman?

We still don’t know much, but according to the Toonami Faithful fansite, we can expect the reboot to pick up five decades after the end of Samurai Jack’s fourth season, and is expected to wrap up the ronin’s tale over 10 half-hour episodes that form one, five-hour movie. Returning creator Genndy Tartakovsky is not expected to carry on once the new season is over.
