Adventure Time, Cartoon Network’s hit animated comedy series returns with its third season on Monday, July 11, at 8 p.m. (ET, PT). Adventure Time follows unlikely heroes Finn and Jake, buddies who traverse the mystical Land of Ooo and encounter its colorful inhabitants. The best of friends always find themselves in the middle of heart-pounding escapades.
Adventure Time has become a genuine pop culture sensation in the short time since its April 2010 premiere with critical acclaim developing early. The series was nominated for a Primetime EmmyÂ® just months into its run and soon fell into a ratings groove, with its first and second seasons earning the distinction of being #1 in its time period among kids 2-11, kids 6-11, and all key boy demos across all of television according to Nielsen Media Research.
From the mind of first-time series creator Pendleton Ward , Ooo is a land built for adventure. Finn, a silly kid with an awesome hat and Jake, a brassy dog with a big kind heart, depend on each other through thick and thin. The Land of Ooo is teeming with imposing mountains, lush green plains, accessible forests, ubiquitous prairies and winding rivers, the cities and towns are filled with bizarre characters in need of unique assistance. Whether it’s saving Princess Bubblegum, defeating zombie candy, mocking the “oxy-moronic” Ice King, or rocking out with undead music wiz Marceline the Vampire Queen, with Finn and Jake it’s always Adventure Time .
Adventure Time is produced in partnership with Frederator Studios with Fred Seibert serving as an executive producer on the series.
