However, Adult Swim has responded to the outcry with some small glimmer of hope:

What this may turn into remains to be seen of course, but it's possible the the show at least gets a proper sendoff in some format or another. Stay tuned!

<![CDATA[Venture Bros. Possibly Cancelled]]> http://mantiseye.com/news/2020/09/venture_bros_possibly_cancelled http://mantiseye.com/news/2020/09/venture_bros_possibly_cancelled#comments Mon, 07 Sep 2020 00:17:00 UTC Mike http://mantiseye.com/news/2020/09/venture_bros_possibly_cancelled Friend of the show Ken Plume made a couple of Tweets last night:

There's been no official confirmation anywhere as best I can tell, though a concerned reader did write me to let me know:

Anecdotally: I have a friend who works for Turner, and he says Adult Swim is facing a massive downsizing in staff, scope, and programming. This is all speculation of course, but I do have a bad feeling.

I have no way to verify any of this of course, and no idea what this means for season eight or beyond of the show.

<![CDATA[Venture Bros. Season 7 on DVD and Blu-Ray]]> http://mantiseye.com/news/2019/06/venture_bros_season_7_on_dvd_and_bluray http://mantiseye.com/news/2019/06/venture_bros_season_7_on_dvd_and_bluray#comments Fri, 07 Jun 2019 21:01:00 UTC Mike http://mantiseye.com/news/2019/06/venture_bros_season_7_on_dvd_and_bluray Venture Bros. season 7, it was released in both DVD and Blu-Ray formats a few days ago (June 4th, to be precise)! Sorry for missing the exact date! However, head over to you favorite purveyor of digital video discs and grab a copy. Over on Amazon they can be had for $18.99 for the DVD version and $24.99 for the Blu-Ray.]]> <![CDATA[Venture In The New Year]]> http://mantiseye.com/news/2018/12/venture_in_the_new_year http://mantiseye.com/news/2018/12/venture_in_the_new_year#comments Wed, 19 Dec 2018 15:49:00 UTC Mike http://mantiseye.com/news/2018/12/venture_in_the_new_year The Venture Bros. starting in January! The only catch it is will be airing Sunday mornings at 5am (eastern)... which is also Saturday night depending on how late you stay up. Either way, it's a great way to watch the show in its natural environment; live on a television with commercials and everything! Weird!

The whole thing kicks off with "Dia de los Dangerous!" which airs at 5am on January 6th (the night of January 5th, if you're inclined). You can also catch replays of the end of season seven at the much more reasonable time of 12:30am on Sunday nights, though I'm not sure if they'll air the entire series in that far more coveted time slot just yet.]]>
