Cartoon Network has just announced that its multiple award-winning cartoon series, ‘Adventure Time’, is set to end after 148 episodes in 2018.
The show reaped six Emmy awards, two Annie awards, a Peabody award, and two British Academy Children’s Awards trophies.
Cartoon Network’s announcement of the series’ impending closure included this statement from creator Pendleton Ward:
“’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.”
The show is currently in production on its ninth and final season.
