The adventures of unlikely heroes Finn and Jake are far from over – they’re just cutting the cord on their old lives and heading on over to HBO Max.

Here’s a look at what HBO Max has to say about the four specials:

● “BMO” follows the lovable little robot from Adventure Time. When there’s a deadly space emergency in the farthest reaches of the galaxy, there’s only one hero to call, and it’s probably not BMO. Except that this time it is!

● “Obsidian” features Marceline & Princess Bubblegum as they journey to the imposing, beautiful Glass Kingdom—and deep into their tumultuous past—to prevent an earthshaking catastrophe.

● “Wizard City” follows Peppermint Butler, starting over at the beginning, as just another inexperienced Wizard School student. When mysterious events at the campus cast suspicion on Pep, and his checkered past, can he master the mystic arts in time to prove his innocence?

● “Together Again” brings Finn and Jake together again, to rediscover their brotherly bond and embark on the most important adventure of their lives.

“BMO” and “Obsidian” are set to premiere on the streamer in 2020, followed by Wizard City and Together Again.

“Adventure Time was a groundbreaking series and a creative playground for so many talented creative artists. Producing Adventure Time: Distant Lands for HBO Max will allow our studio to explore this beloved world in an all-new format.”
