Pendleton Ward’s Adventure Time had marked a cultural shift in cartoons, and while the series had wrapped since 2018, HBO is bringing back the show with the genderbent version of Finn and Jake, Fionna and Cake.
The show is set to premiere later this month, and we have a new trailer. Watch this:
The official description reads:
Based on characters from the beloved “Adventure Time” franchise, this brand-new 10-episode series set in the land of Ooo follows the alternate universe versions of Finn & Jake on a multiverse-hopping journey towards self-discovery. When Fionna and her sidekick Cake find themselves in the crosshairs of a powerful new foe, they have no choice but to seek the help of former Ice King Simon Petrikov.
It’s not exactly clear how Fionna and Cake are related to the reality of Finn and Jake, but it looks like the show isn’t going to be trying so hard to cater to younger audiences and will be open to explaining more complicated lore in the land of Ooo.
Though Fionna and Cake are the stars of the show, it does look like we’re going to be getting an appearance from the OG Finn and Jake. We don’t really know what they’re up to, but if it has anything to do with the Ice King, it’s very likely the two will get involved somehow.
Watch out for Adventure Time: Fionna & Cake when it premieres on Max this Aug. 31.
