In the fifth and final season of Samurai Jack, produced by Williams Street and Cartoon Network Studios, 50 years have passed since where we last left off. The time spent in Aku’s dystopian future has taken its toll on Jack’s biological clock and his mental state. With his magic sword gone and all the time portals destroyed, Jack finds himself falling into despair as he is haunted by visions of the past. And with the seven daughters of Aku coming after his life, can Jack survive long enough to find a way back to his time and bring an end to Aku?
Well, the first episode of Season 5 has pretty much proven that this ain’t the same Samurai Jack from 13 years ago. The difference between this and the first four seasons is essentially night and day. And it is definitely shapingup to be a welcome entry and a proper conclusion to Samurai Jack. To think that at one point we thought we never would see an end.
