A GrandFinale feature film was in DevelopmentHell in the decade following the show's cancelation before Creator/AdultSwim agreed to instead conclude the series with a ten-episode, with Tartakovsky and the rest of the main creative staff returning, in 2015. Set 50 years after Jack was flung into the future, this season officially brings Jack's tale to an end, while also [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructing]] some of the DarkerAndEdgier aspects of his never-ending journey. The final season aired between March 11th, 2017 and May 20th, 2017.

Fans of ''Samurai Jack'' hold the show in high regard for its outline-free art style, impressive action sequences, and long stretches of animation without dialogue. The show took numerous stylistic risks: most episodes had [[SilenceIsGolden minimal dialogue]], mature themes were often addressed for the sake of drama or laughs, and drastic art shifts were used to mark dreams, hauntings, and visits to alternate dimensions. Tellingly, it was Creator/CartoonNetwork's first original program not to be a part of the ''WesternAnimation/CartoonCartoon'' brand, presumably so as not to have viewers think that it was just another "funny" cartoon show.

The show took numerous stylistic risks: most episodes had [[SilenceIsGolden minimal dialogue]], mature themes were often addressed for the sake of drama or laughs, and drastic art shifts were used to mark dreams, hauntings, and visits to alternate dimensions.

Cartoon Network ended the show after four seasons and fifty-two episodes, with Jack still trying to find his way back to the past. However, Creator/{{Toonami}} aired reruns during the block's third, fourth and final CN-era incarnations, and Creator/AdultSwim's version of the block starting in February 2014. A DVD re-release of the series began in the same year. Further, creator IDW had a 20 issue ComicBookAdaptation that ran from October 2013 to May 2015, with a last issue that had its own BolivianArmyEnding / DistantFinale to the series.[[note]](Jack and Aku also appeared in the IDW CrisisCrossover comic book event ''ComicBook/CartoonNetworkSuperSecretCrisisWar'', released in June 2014.)[[/note]]
