Adventure Time to air its final season in 2018

Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time will come to an end in 2018.

The show’s ninth season will be its last, with new half-hour episodes and specials continuing to air through 2018.

"Adventure Time changed the definition of what a kids’ TV series could be, and it’s had a resounding impact upon popular culture around the world," said Rob Sorcher, chief content officer for Cartoon Network.

"Cartoon Network Studios is proud to have brought together this group of brilliant artists and animators who helped make Adventure Time one of the most critically acclaimed TV series of a generation."

Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward added: "Adventure Time was a passion project for the people on the crew who poured their heart into the art and stories. We tried to put into every episode something genuine and telling from our lives, and make a show that was personal to us, and that had jokes too.

"I’m really happy that it connected with an audience for so long. It’s a special thing, I think."
