Samurai Jack season 5 is produced by Cartoon Network Studios and Williams Street for Adult Swim.

Season five has a mature tone compared to the previous child-friendly seasons that aired on Cartoon Network.
Toonami Asia promoted the new season on their Twitter account, Samurai Jack season five would have been a good fit for Toonami Asia, but international versions of Toonami are more suited to younger audiences compared to the American programming block of the same name, so instead, its airing on TruTV Asia which is also owned by Toonami’s owners – Turner. In the UK and Ireland, Samurai Jack airs on FOX’s Adult Swim block every Thursday night at midnight (less than a week after the U.S. premiere) and in Latin America, Samurai Jack premiered on Turner-owned I.Sat this month.
