The show officially debuted on Cartoon Network in April, 2010 and will conclude after its ninth season with a total 142 half-hour episodes.
Created by Pendleton Ward, the show follows Jake the Dog and Finn the Human through the post-apocalyptic, LSD-infused land of Ooo.
“‘Adventure Time’ was a passion project for the people on the crew who poured their heart into the art and stories,” Ward said in a statement. “We tried to put into every episode something genuine and telling from our lives, and make a show that was personal to us, and that had jokes too! I’m really happy that it connected with an audience for so long. It’s a special thing, I think.”
Since its debut, “Adventure Time” has become a cult and critical favorite for its color animation, creative storytelling and quirky sense of humor. Among its many accolades are the show’s six Emmy Awards and a Peabody Award.
The announcement follows one earlier this month that one of Cartoon Network’s other most recognizable properties, “The Regular Show” will end after its eighth season.
A premiere date for “Adventure Time” Season 8 has not been set, but the show is expected to return in late 2016.
