Venture Bros. illustrations from the Season 5 DVD / Blu-Ray packaging
Had a refreshing view of the trailer for Season 5. I had previously seen it at NYCC and upon rewatching I spotted one of things that made me “geek out” as they say. That shimmering Flash Gordon reference.
A thing I couldn’t get a good shot of was (what I assume to be) the Wild Fop in the hearse.
Aaaaand there are some other things (big and small) that I cannot mention at this time that are going to be beyond spectacular. Season 5 is going to roundly kick the asses of things you could not wrap your head around a season of a television show doing so. This is fact.
Season 5 starts May 19th
Most appropriate time for a ‘Boom, Yummy!’ joke.
"This is a night of true magic. Halloween is the night we discover who we are. Are we people who make zombie armies? Are we those who condemn others, or are we beautiful children in resplendent costumes collecting candy? Are our choices in costumes provocative? Do we dress up as our ideal self, or are we not ready to decide what to be? Do you see it now? We use this one enchanted night to perform the greatest feat of magic there is. We become ourselves. Halloween is the true magic. It is the night we discover who we really are.”
- Doctor Orpheus, A Very Venture Halloween
“We’re making Season 5 right now,” Publick said. “We haven’t gotten any animation back yet – it’s coming, like, next week but we do have a little something to show you.”
With that, fans were treated to a 10-minute animatic providing a glimpse of new locations, new characters and a few scenes from the fifth season. Throughout the video, the crowd regularly broke into fits of laughter and cheers.
“There’s actually a Season 6,” Hammer said. “Also, this is not the last season. Even if you watch Season 5 and you’re like, ‘Aw, they got so bad,’ which you won’t because it’s awesome.”
As the two left the stage, Hammer joked, “We’re super-apologetic for putting out our show every two-and-a-half years.”
