The Venture Bros. canceled after seven seasons at Adult Swim

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

It's the end of the line for The Venture Bros! It has been announced that the long-running adult comedy series has been canceled after seven seasons. Creator Christopher McCulloch announced the news yesterday on Twitter.

McCulloch said that he and the writers had been in the middle of writing season 8 when they received the news a few months ago that the show would not be picked up for another season. Even though The Venture Bros is ending its run, the show has the distinction of being one of the longest-running original series on Adult Swim, running seven seasons over 17 years. The pilot episode aired on Adult Swim in 2003, and the first season premiered in 2004. Fans typically had to wait between two and three years between seasons, and the final one ended in 2018.

The Venture Bros. followed the Venture family, made up of incompetent teen brothers Dean and Hank, their insecure scientist father Rusty, their family bodyguard Brock Sampson and a colorful cast of supervillains, like The Monarch, Dr. Girlfriend, Sergeant Hatred, and Phantom Limb. The show typically spoofed many superhero tropes and got most of its satirical inspiration from the show Johnny Quest. McCulloch voiced several of the characters along with Michael Sinterniklaas, James Urbaniak, Patrick Warburton, Doc Hammer, Steven Rattazzi, and Dana Snyder.

Following the announcement on Twitter,  Adult Swim tweeted that the network is looking for ways to continue the long-running series’ story. You can check out their tweet below:

I admit I haven't watched The Venture Bros. in years but during its first three seasons, I thought it was one of the funniest adult animated shows out there. Are YOU sad to see The Venture Bros. go?
