Metalocalypse future in doubt
Creator says show featuring fictional death metal band Dethklok won't return to Adult Swim
The future of animated series Metalocalypse is in doubt after its creator revealed TV bosses passed on airing a fifth season.
Brendon Small says via Twitter that the show – which was aired on the Adult Swim channel – would not return for a fifth season, which he intended to be the finale.
Small says: "For those complaining about lack season 5. Was a network decision – I wanted to do it as a final big mini series. They said no. True story."
Small previously told Metal Injection he hoped to wrap up the series with a final story and new music, but "not in a way fans are used to."
