Fans Bid A Fond Farewell To ‘Adventure Time’ After 10 Seasons Of The Hit Series 😥

On April 5, 2010, Adventure Time first graced our television screens. Its final episode aired on September 3 of this year.

If you aren’t already a fan, the show takes place in a post-apocalyptic world and follows a boy, Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada), and his magical dog, Jake the Dog (John DiMaggio). Together they protect the citizens of the Land of Ooo. 

Pendleton Ward, the show’s creator, described it as follows:

It’s candyland on the surface and dark underneath, and that’s why it’s compelling, I think, if at all. Those are my favorite kind of emotions — the ones that conflict with each other, and they feel weird inside of you.

And compelling it was. Over the years, it was nominated for 15 Emmys, winning eight. The TV show was geared toward children, but it developed a cult following in teens and adults.

To honor its last episode, Jeremy Shada and its host network, Cartoon Network, took to Twitter to share their sentiments. 

Check out their tweets.

The finale was incredibly well-received by viewers and critics alike. 

In a review of the final episode, Entertainment Weekly said:

One of the greatest TV shows ever had a soulful, mind-expanding conclusion.

Along with its many plot twists and turns, the finale also gifted audiences with a kiss shared by Princess Bubblegum and Marceline. It was, perhaps, the most iconic moment of the episode, reflecting how times have changed since its 2010 debut.

Many fans are saying goodbye to their childhoods and paying tribute to a show that lived and evolved during some of history’s big victories.

But mostly, viewers are thankful for all eight years and ten seasons.

“The fun will never end, Adventure Time!”
