If you love the late-night animated series like Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Metalocalypse, and The Venture Bros., then you’re in for a real treat! Adult Swim has just announced that it has ordered feature films based on each of the hit shows.

The celebrated series were some of the first to air on Adult Swim when it launched on Cartoon Network in 2001. Known for outlandish comedy, colorful animation, and zany characters, Adult Swim has become a staple programming block for older audiences who can’t get enough of cartoons.

President of Adult Swim, Michael Ouweleen, said, “Leveraging the power of WarnerMedia allows us to deliver original content to our amazingly dedicated and not-shy fans, while also giving our talented series creators an opportunity to tell stories in new and interesting ways.”

The three upcoming movies will premiere on HBO Max and Adult Swim, and will become available on Blu-ray, DVD, and TVOD 90 days later.

The Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie will pick up where the series left off, following the antics of Frylock, Meatwad and Master Shake. In The Venture Bros. film, Doc’s latest invention will either lead them to bankruptcy, or take them down a completely new path.

The Metalocalypse movie is helmed by the original series creator Brendon Small. We can’t even sum up the awesomeness that is this film description. Check it out: 

“The power-hungry TRIBUNAL unveils their secret and deadly “Falconback Project” as the world grows in embattled chaos and the menacing Doomstar breaches the Earth’s atmosphere while the mysterious and twisted dissent of a band member threatens the future of Dethklok. Picking up directly after the heroic rescue of Toki Wartooth: Can Dethklok choose between their egos and the greater good of the world to embark on a gauntlet of dangers that will try their very souls and finally write the song that will be their salvation?”
