'Samurai Jack' long-awaited final-season trailer isn't for kids

The time-traveling hero has stopped aging and things look bleak as the show prepares to return after a 13-year hiatus.

Now playing: Watch this: 'Samurai Jack' final season trailer debuts

Things are looking grim in the new, definitely-not-for-kids trailer for the fifth and final season of "Samurai Jack."

It's been 13 years since Genndy Tartakovsky's stylish animated series last aired a new episode. (The show's first four seasons, spanning 52 episodes, aired from 2001 to 2004, and it claimed four Primetime Emmys.)

Hero Jack, who's stopped aging, is still trapped in the dystopian future where the time-traveling warrior was thrust by the demon lord Aku.

"Aku's grasp chokes the past, present and future," the trailer reveals, and it looks like Jack will have a tough fight through the bleak, violent landscape. Still, he has hope, "It always seems bad at first," Jack notes in the preview. "But then, I find a way."

The new 10-episode series will come to Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block on March 11.
