'The Venture Bros.' Canceled at Adult Swim After Seven Seasons

“The Venture Bros.” has been canceled by Adult Swim after seven seasons, creator Christopher McCulloch announced on Twitter on Monday.

McCulloch said 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 returning to air.

When contacted by Variety, Adult Swim said it was looking for a way to continue the story with McCulloch and co-writer Doc Hammer.

The adult animated cartoon spoofed many superhero and pop culture tropes, and the main characters were a riff on the “Johnny Quest” crew.

McCulloch and Hammer voiced several of the characters along with Michael Sinterniklaas, James Urbaniak, Patrick Warburton, Steven Rattazzi and Dana Snyder.

“So, as it must to all, cancellation has come for ‘The Venture Bros.’ The pilot aired 17 years ago, which means the show was almost old enough to vote,” he wrote.
