Bad news here. Despite the hopes and major movement of Metalocalypse Now, it appears there will officially be no more Metalocalypse episodes made. It’s Hamburger Time. In a recent interview with Metal Insider, the show’s creator Brendon Small had the following to say of the shows official demise and Adult Swim’s actions:
“It turns out Adult Swim doesn’t want anyone to have Metalocalypse, not even themselves. They just want old re-runs. They paid for it, so they can take their ball and go home with it, and that’s how show business works, for better or for worse. They said just a flat out no, and they get to do that.”
So, there you have it. It was incredible while it lasted but Metalocalypse is now a part of the past. Let’s mourn the dead and laugh at these classics:
