Cartoon Network Orders New Episodes of Steven Universe and Uncle Grandpa
Cartoon Network has just announced that they have ordered a total of 26 new episodes of Steven Universe and Uncle Grandpa (13 each). Both Steven Universe and Uncle Grandpa originated from Cartoon Network Studios’ shorts development program, which is the same program that birthed the hit animated comedy series Regular Show.
Steven Universe is currently airing as part of CN’s Monday night comedy line-up at 8 pm. Birthed from the fertile mind of Emmy and Annie Award-nominated writer and storyboard artist Rebecca Sugar (Adventure Time), the half-hour show focuses on the adventures of a boy named Steven, who is sort of a superhero in training and considered the ultimate “little brother” to a team of superheroines with gem-based powers dubbed as “The Crystal Gems.”
Uncle Grandpa, which debuted last September 2 and managed to rank #1 in its time period, centers on the titular “magical” being who is everyone’s uncle and grandpa at the same time. Traveling around the world in a mystical RV, Uncle Grandpa makes it his mission to help people however, wherever, and whenever they need it. The series was created by Pete Browngardt and is currently airing every Tuesday night at 8 p.m. (ET/PT)
