“Robot Chicken” creators/executive producers Seth Green and Matthew Senreich have made a deal with Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim for a two-season, 40-episode pick-up for seasons five and six.
“We’re very excited,” says Green, “we never expected to do a second season, let alone a fifth and sixth, so we are thrilled by the audience response and how the show continues to grow internationally.” Senreich says, “We love Adult Swim. It’s really that simple. From the get-go, we’ve always said that ‘Robot Chicken’ was a show where we play with friends and we look forward to doing that for years to come!”
“Robot Chicken,” the highest-rated original series on Adult Swim, began airing in February 2005 and remains the top-rated original on the network. The series has been Emmy-nominated as Outstanding Animated Program for the last two years; Green was nominated for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance and the series has won multiple Emmys in Animation. “Robot Chicken” produced two hit “Robot Chicken: Star Wars” specials, and “Robot Chicken” DVDs consistently rank among the industry’s top TV on DVD releases during the week they are released. In addition, “Robot Chicken” has won four Annie Awards, including Best Animated Television Production, Best Writing and Best Director for Green.
