Adult Swim revives Aqua Teen Hunger Force for Season 12

Aqua Teen Hunger Force, also known as Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1 and Aqua Something You Know Whatever, has aired on Adult Swim since the TV block began in 2001 and aired the final of its 138 episodes in 2015. Now, 8 years later, the anthropomorphic food misanthropes are back for a 12th season, reports Entertainment Weekly.

Adult Swim announced today that it has ordered five new episodes of the series. Creators Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro are back to oversee the show, with Dana Snyder (Master Shake), Cary Means (Frylock) and Willis (Meatwad, Carl, Ignignokt) all returning to voice their respective characters.

“We’re thrilled to be making more episodes of Aqua Teen Hunger Force for a new generation of fans, while building on the most impressive collection of intellectual property ever assembled,” the creators said in a statement. “Success is optimal and leads to quality.”

Aqua Teen Hunger Force follows the misadventures of Master Shake, Frylock, Meatwad, and their sweatpants-wearing neighbor Carl Brutananadilewski as they encounter beings like the Wisdom Cube, the Mooninites, and the cybernetic ghost of Christmas Past from the future.

Adult Swim released a series of Aqua Teen shorts titled Aquadonk Side Pieces last year, as well as a new film last year, Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm. The film will be available on HBO Max on February 8th. There’s no word yet on when the show will return.
