Venture Bros. Season 5 Mini-Status Update

Astute reader '420guy' has noted in a comment thread here that Jackson left some juicy tidbits in the comments of his LiveJournal. Specifically a status report of sorts on the much anticipated (but always elusive) season 5 of Venture Bros. When asked by a loyal reader for a morsel from the season:

Sorry, man... nothing to show until the summer. We're just about to ship the first episode to Korea to be animated.

Which, to me anyway, implies you guys will get to see some stuff during convention season. The big three conventions, as always, are San Diego Comic-Con, Dragon*Con and New York Comic Con. Jackson and/or Doc are likely to make appearances at all three of them, possibly with clips and trailers.

Perhaps even more telling is the fact that the first episode was just shipped off to Korea (his comment was written on April 8th), meaning there are still a good seven or eight months before that episode is completed, which already puts us into early next year. Coupled with Jackson's other comment (in response to asking for the title of the season 5 premiere):

Sorry, but we haven't actually written the premiere episode yet. And since Doc wrote the "first" episode in the production order, I can't tell you the title. Because he totally hates when the titles get leaked.

Obviously the season can't begin until the intended premiere is completed, and even if Jackson and Doc suddenly wrote a script for it today there would still be around a month of pre-production, plus another 7 - 8 to get the animation finalized. So, my own (hopefully) educated guess is that season 5 will start sometime early next year, somewhere around March. The best I can do is speculate, though, so take that with some grains of salt.

any news is good news! we can wait. =)

Thanks for the latest round of interviews and info. As venturerheads, dealing with these long, in-between season lulls is a fact of life but every new piece of ventureinfo makes the wait easier and keeps the site from getting stagnant. Keep up the good work, Mike.

The Venture Bros. Panel from NYCC 2016 is archived on Twitch at the mail channel. Some minor spoilers to follow... Orpheus and Dermott have both been written in to Season 7, though the latter in small doses. They are finishing working on the scripts and they hope to start production in the next month or two. They have said this before but the first episode of Season 7 will act as a finale to Season 6. (Much like how the Gargantua-2 special ended Season 5 on a proper note). They are very conscious that the past two seasons have not had a proper finale and they are trying to fix that in Season 7. While they have not been renewed for a Season 8, they HAVE NOT been cancelled. In fact, they said they are specifically not writing Season 7 as if it were the last one. Finally, The Art of the Venture Bros. is still a go! It has expanded into a much bigger book than they imagined and Ken Plume has been doing the work on it. It has material from all six seasons, and it sounds like an in-depth interview that spans the entire book. Release date and information still to come.
