Aqua Teen Hunger Force is returning to the small screen. Adult Swim is reviving the adult animated series, which last aired with season 11 in 2015. A five-episode season 12 has been ordered.
Created by Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro, the series follows three living fast-food items named Master Shake, Frylock, and Meatwad. The trio live together as roommates and interact with their human neighbor. Carey Means, Dana Snyder, and co-creator Dave Willis voice the main characters.
In addition to season 12, the characters will also be seen in a new film titled Aqua Teen Force Plantasm, which will be released on HBO Max next month and Adult Swim in March. A premiere date for season 12 of Aqua Teen Hunger Force will be announced later.
Adult Swim revealed more about the revival in a press release.
Adult Swim, the leader in adult animation and #1 destination for young adults, has ordered a 12th season of the perennial favorite “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” from original creators Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro. Encompassing five all-new episodes, the order comes on the heels of the latest feature film “Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm,” which arrives on HBO Max Feb. 8 and on Adult Swim March 12 at midnight ET/PT.
“We are thrilled to be making more ‘Aqua Teen Hunger Force’ episodes for a new generation of fans, building upon the most impressive collection of IP ever assembled. Success is optimal and leads to quality,” said Maiellaro and Willis simultaneously, almost as if they were programmed by ChatGPT.
“Congratulations!” they added. “You waited just long enough for ‘Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm’ to be free on the service your parents pay for. I can’t wait for you to discover the project everyone has been talking about, and by everyone, I mean our personal twitter accounts. There is too much stuff to watch already. Breathe, and focus exclusively on Aqua Teen. Delete everything else.”
Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm
“Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm” features everyone’s favorite Aqua Teens: the brainy Frylock, the mouthy Master Shake, the loveable Meatwad, and everyone’s favorite perverted neighbor, Carl.

The feature stars Carey Means (“The Brak Show”) as Frylock, Dana Snyder (“Squidbillies”) as Master Shake, and co-creator Dave Willis (“Squidbillies,” “Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell”) as Meatwad.
