Is Robot Chicken Getting a 12th Season?

Is Robot Chicken going to return to Adult Swim for a twelfth season someday? The fan favorite Adult Swim stop motion series recently made its grand return to Adult Swim with its milestone 11th season. The series aired its entire new season over the course of a few weeks earlier this September, and while it’s not the most graceful premiere period for a long running animated series like it, fans are now looking ahead to what could be potentially coming in the future for the Adult Swim favorite. A future that’s starting to look a lot more uncertain than expected.

Tom Root, who has worked as a producer, writer, and director for Robot Chicken recently spoke with’s Chris Killian about Crossing Swords Season 2 together with John Harvatine IV, and following a comparison about the differences and challenges for the two series, Root could not confirm nor deny whether or now a new season of Crossing Swords or Robot Chicken was in the works, “There’s no official word that we can talk about yet for Robot Chicken, and we are waiting to find out more about Crossing Swords, so the answer to both is ‘I can’t tell you anything.'”

As for whether or not Crossing Swords will make its way into Robot Chicken someday, Root had this to say about the idea, “The problem is Robot Chicken makes fun of everything. I don’t want them making fun of our precious Crossing Swords. It’s too good a show.” The two series might have some base production qualities in common, but they couldn’t be more different. In fact, Harvatine IV opened up about one of the major challenges that makes Crossing Swords a bit tougher to keep track of than Robot Chicken.

“I think [Crossing Swords] is a little more challenging because we create a universe, and we have to keep that together,” Harvatine IV began. “With Robot Chicken, every sketch is different, anything goes, so continuity’s a big thing we have to watching Crossing Swords. Whether it’s what they wear from one scene to the next, or holding, it’s just a lot of logistics of continuity that you have to keep an eye on.”

While a future season of Robot Chicken or Crossing Swords is uncertain at the moment, fans can currently find the newest season of Crossing Swords now streaming on Hulu. The series is described as such, “Crossing Swords stars Nicholas Hoult as Patrick, a good hearted peasant who lands a coveted squire position at the royal castle. However, his dream job quickly turns into a nightmare when he learns his beloved kingdom is run by a hornet’s nest of horny monarchs, crooks and charlatans. Even worse, Patrick’s valor made him the black sheep in his family, and now his criminal siblings have returned to make his life hell. War, murder, full frontal nudity–who knew brightly colored peg people led such exciting lives?”
