After eagerly waiting to hear what would replace Outlaw Star’s considering its finale is this weekend. Toonami has finally made an announcement regarding the schedule for March 24th. Space Dandy will be moving up to 2:00am taking Outlaw Star’s time slot. Meanwhile, Cowboy Bebop will be doubling up for an hour at 2:30 to 3:30 am to finish out the series rerun on Toonami.
With that being said the following weekend after March 24th is April Fools. So that has many wondering if Toonami/Adult Swim will be pulling a prank as it usually does every year and what that prank will entail. Last year Adult Swim premiered the first episode of season 3 of Rick and Morty from 8pm until midnight which ended up preempting Toonami for an hour. So it’s possible Toonami/Adult Swim could pull a similar prank this year and premiere the first episode of a new show at midnight and rerun it all night long.
This also has many people wondering what will replace both Outlaw Star and Cowboy Bebop. It is possible one of the two shows could simply rerun on the block and we will get one show announcement which as we stated above could possibly premiere on April Fool’s all night as part of Toonami/Adults Swim’s April Fool’s prank.
I would also like to note that season 2 of Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans ends its run on April 28th (depending upon if they don’t choose to double it up to make way for another show) so April will be quite the busy month for Toonami.
We will keep you updated when more information is announced.
Do you think Toonami/Adult Swim will pull an April Fool’s prank and what do you think that prank will be? Do you think we will get two new shows to replace Cowboy Bebop and Outlaw Star or do you think one of the two will rerun on the block? What do you think will be the show or shows that Toonami will announce? Let us know in the comments below or on our social media accounts.
