Cartoon Network’s pop culture phenomenon and global TV hit Adventure Time is back with an eight-part mini-series ‘Stakes’ on Monday January 18, 2016 at 6pm AEDT.
Is Marceline the most awesome heroine since Princess Bubblegum?
We think so – which is why we’re stoked that our favourite vampire stars in Adventure Time’s first spin-off series, Stakes.
Finn and Jake’s former frenemy sets off on a quest to cure herself of vampirism and become mortal.
However, in the process she accidentally releases five of the toughest vampires from her past.
Now the powerless Marceline and her friends must take on the vampires and restore things back to what they were before.
Along the way we’ll learn more of her mysterious backstory (and there’s a lot of story to tell – Marceline is more than 1000 years old).
Through flashbacks we’ll discover more about her past with the Ice King – as well as her heartbreaking decision to ask Princess Bubblegum to take away her vampire side.
Joining the regular voice cast are Rebecca Romijn (X-Men: First Class) as The Empress, Paul Williams as the Hierophant, Beau Billingslea (Star Trek: Into Darkness) as the Moon, Kyle Kinane (Epic) as Cloud Dance and Ron Funches (Get Hard) as the Fool.
Stakes is more proof that Adventure Time is “a cartoon that may be the most imaginative – and indeed entertaining – on TV”.
It’s the perfect show to sink your teeth into as you wait for the next season of Adventure Time on the Comedy Channel from March 7.
Stakes is on Monday January 18 at 6.30pm exclusive to Cartoon Network.
