Fortunately, there's more to it. It's hard to keep a good samurai down, and in late 2015, Creator/AdultSwim made the surprising and amazing announcement that Jack is back in 2016, with new episodes set to air on Toonami. Tartakovsky has returned as executive producer.[[note]]Likely due to leaving Sony Pictures after the Popeye movie he was meant to direct was shelved. The move to Toonami was due to not having to worry about the higher ups at Cartoon Network messing with the show due to their focus on all comedy shows at the time.[[/note]] The new season is to consist of 10 episodes set 50 years after the initial series.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Although hero and villain alike ordinarily suffered from ContractualGenreBlindness, "Jack vs. Aku" started with a hilarious subversion - Aku confronts Jack, and then explains ''exactly'' how this confrontation is going to play out. Then he suggests that they end the endless cycle with a final duel. [[SchmuckBait Of course,]] it's a trap. [[PingPongNaivete Less predictably,]] Jack knows it's a trap. [[BattleOfWits However,]] Aku knows Jack knows it's a trap... but [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow he doesn't know]] that Jack knows that Aku knows that Jack knows that it's a trap. Or... something like that.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Aku on many occasions. In ''Aku's Fairy Tales'', it shows that he [[WouldntHurtAChild doesn't like hurting children. In ''The Aku Infection'' as well, he refused to fight Jack due to getting cold out in the snow.

* WhamLine: After The Guardian completely DEMOLISHES Jack in combat he tells jack that he will never defeat him and use the portal. Just before The Guardian can finish Jack off, the time portal communicates with The Guardian. Afterwards he sends Jack away on a giant bird then looks at the portal viewing an older more experienced jack. The episode finishes with this haunting line:
** '''The Guardian:''' ''"You can't use this portal yet Samurai Jack. Not yet....not yet."'' (Cue epic music)

* TookALevelInKindness: when The Scotsman first appeared, he was a violent, barbaric and egotistical annhilator who wanted to start a fight with Jack just because of an arguement over crossing a bridge. After becomming friends with Jack, he showed a more humble side, and is now one of the friendliest characters on the show.
