Adult Swim Changes Toonami Lineup

It appears that the late-night Toonami block on Adult Swim will be undergoing a new change in time for January 2019.

According to Anime News Network, Adult Swim plans to drop the extra hour of programming given to Toonami in September 2018.

Toonami’s official Facebook page announced its new schedule for January 5, 2019, which is as follows:

11:00 p.m. – Dragon Ball Super
11:30 p.m. – Boruto: Naruto Next Generations
12:00 a.m. – My Hero Academia
12:30 a.m. – Mob Psycho 100
1:00 a.m. – Megalobox
1:30 a.m. – JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable
2:00 a.m. – Black Clover
2:30 a.m. – Hunter x Hunter
3:00 a.m. – Naruto Shippūden
3:30 a.m. – Attack on Titan
4:00 a.m. – Pop Team Epic
4:30 a.m. – Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans

Instead of starting at 9:00 p.m, Toonami will begin at 11:00 p.m by dropping Dragon Ball Z Kai and Samurai Jack off its current lineup.

Since 1997, Toonami has become a programming phenomenon, gifting North American audiences with original anime programming.

Toonami’s rise has coincided with anime’s mainstream popularity in North America by releasing critically-acclaimed series such as One Piece, Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon, Naruto, and so much more.

After being cut from Adult Swim’s lineup in 2008, the program was revived in 2012 and has since been a beloved addition of Cartoon Network for anime fans.
