The Venture Bros will be back. Earlier this month, the creators of the Adult Swim animated series spoke with TVInsider about season six and their future plans for the show.
Season six of The Venture Bros just ended on March 20th.
Speaking about season six, co-creator Jackson Publick said the season was far more planned out than previous seasons:
It’s almost never as preconceived as what we’re doing this season. There’s some stuff that we’re thinking about, and we don’t know when we’ll ever get there, but a lot of times if I create a character or a subplot, I’ll have way more to say than is going to fit in one episode, or I’ll know that I want to take it some place in the future and I’ll drop some breadcrumbs toward that.”
He added that both him and co-creator Doc Hammer are currently writing season seven, which will pick up right after season six ended:
The story we’re writing now would have been the season finale, but we didn’t get to it. We weren’t ready for it when it came time to write the last two scripts. And there was actually a little confusion for a while as to whether or not the Gargantua special counted against our 10-episode order, so we were writing like four different stories at the same time not knowing whether we had two scripts left or four. When it turned out we only had two, we were like, “Alright, I guess we should do our finale.” And then we thought, “No, we haven’t really earned it yet. We need to flesh out this Monarch arc a little more….” So we made a judgement call and wrote two other stories that we were very excited about.”
Hammer also mentioned a possible flashback for season seven, featuring the now long-gone Venture compound:
Yeah, the whole flashback, and somebody is prowling around the area. So the physical space still exists.”
No word yet on when season seven is expected to premiere.
