The Venture Bros. may have had their last adventure …
The Adult Swim series, which began in 2003 on the risqué Cartoon Network late-night block, was cancelled “a few months ago,” according to co-creator Jackson Publick. He announced the news Sept. 7 on Twitter.
An eighth season was in pre-production but ultimately scrapped.
Actor James Urbaniak, who portrayed boy adventurer turned superscience tycoon Dr. Thaddeus ”Rusty” Venture for seven seasons, also took a Twitter bow:
The series was nominally about Venture’s sons Hank and Dean but was always redefining itself and revealing new relationships while riffing on classic cartoons like Jonny Quest and exploring a legacy of failure.
Maybe we’ll get more Venture Bros. on another network or in some other medium? Go Team Venture!
