Cartoon Network has announced that Adventure Time is shutting down after its ninth season, which will be extended with a number of special episodes. The acclaimed animated series, recipient of both Peabody and Emmy awards, is currently in its eighth season, and the final episode won't air until 2018. Pendleton Ward, the show's creator, released the following statement: "Adventure Time was a passion project for the people on the crew who poured their heart into the art and stories. We tried to put into every episode something genuine and telling from our lives, and make a show that was personal to us, and that had jokes too! I’m really happy that it connected with an audience for so long. It’s a special thing, I think." Its legions of fans are surely in agreement.

In other entertainment news, the upcoming Ghost in the Shell was previewed through five brief teasers, and a previously unreleased J Dilla album was released on vinyl.
