If you ams metal, this one for you. If you ams not metal, you ams dildos.

Easily the funniest metal show of all time, Metalocalypse, left fans with one helluva cliffhanger at the end of Season 4. And to makes things worse, the chances of a new season were looking bleaker with every passing month. Rumors even circulated that the show was cancelled at a point to the dismay of many. Rumors ams dildos. But in some ways the rumors may be true. There might not be another season of Metalocalypse…

But Dethklok will return with a one hour METAL OPERA special, “Metalocalypse: The Doom Star Requiem”. Say whaaaa? I doubt anyone saw that coming besides Adult Swim and creator Brendan Small himself. It makes total sense though considering Metalocalypse is a music (metal \m/) based show. And on top of this, who can say no to a solid hour of original, new Dethklok music? They might literally kill you if you did. You can read the official Adult Swim statement on the return of Metalocalypse below. You can also check some hilarious moments from the series. Enjoy!

“In Metalocalypse: The Doom Star Requiem, we pick up directly after the abduction of Dethklok guitarist Toki Wartooth in the season 4 finale. With his life in danger his only salvation can come from the four most selfish human celebrities on earth—his bandmates, extreme metal band DETHKLOK. Will they be able to get past their own egos to help someone besides themselves? Find out in this one-hour heavy metal rock opera special with a completely original score. Created by Brendon Small, Metalocalypse: The Doom Star Requiem airs in October. Animated one-hour special.”
