Adult Swim’s Toonami celebrates the new year by adding “Dragon Ball Super” to its lineup. The English dub of the massively popular series arrives January 7 at 8 PM and 11:30 PM. The series’ first 26-episode season will release new installments weekly, every Saturday night.
“’Dragon Ball Super’ is more than the latest adventure in the Dragon Ball saga – It’s a collaboration between the series original creator, Akira Toriyama and a passionate team of men and women who are both longtime partners and talented newcomers,” Masayuki Endo, President and CEO of Toei Animation Inc said in a statement. “‘Dragon Ball Super’ comes with everything viewers can hope for after waiting 18 long years for a new series – impressible dangers to overcome, the reuniting of beloved characters, and new additions to the mythos that will rock Dragon Ball’s very foundation. We are very excited to return ‘Dragon Ball Super’ to its U.S. broadcast home on Adult Swim.”
Cartoon Network has also released a teaser for the series; the “Dragon Ball Super” English dub cast features actors from previous Dragon Ball series including Seán Schemmel (Goku), Christopher R. Sabat (Vegeta), Jason Douglas (Beerus), Ian Sinclair (Whis) and Sonny Strait (Krillin).
“Toonami and the Dragon Ball franchise have a long and storied history together in the U.S.,” Jason DeMarco, senior vice president of on-air for Adult Swim says. “We are thrilled to be premiering ‘Dragon Ball Super’ to our audience and keeping Dragon Ball on Toonami!”
