62 "Metalocalypse: The Doomstar Requiem" Mark Brooks Brendon Small October 27, 2013 (2013-10-27) S01
This one-hour rock opera special picks up directly after the season 4 finale.

Future[edit]

In April 2014, in an interview on Steve Agee: Uhhh podcast, Brendon Small confirmed that a fifth and final season was in pre-production. Small was originally waiting on Adult Swim for an appropriate budget in order to end the show the way he wants rather than rushing it.[15] But after pitching the idea for the finale to the network, they turned it down, stating that they did not have the budget for it.

In October 2015, Brendon Small announced a month-long social media campaign entitled "Metalocalypse Now" as an attempt to gather fan support to have Hulu and Adult Swim co-finance the final season of Metalocalypse.[16] At the time is was thought to be successful, the finale to be titled: Metalocalypse: The Army of the Doomstar - The Final Chapter, and would be a miniseries on Hulu Plus.

In May 2016, Brendon Small said in an interview that he is "all but finished making Dethklok records" due to Adult Swim declining to continue with the final season despite popular support of the continuation. Small stated that as a result of the "Metalocalypse Now" campaign, financial backers had come forward to fund the Metalocalypse finale, but Adult Swim ultimately did not want to go forward and make a finale. Small stated that he does have plans to eventually finish the Metalocalypse story, but he cannot say how.[17]

Notes[edit]

  • The airing of season 2 was suspended for six months between November 18, 2007 and May 18, 2008. The bumper for the episode "Cleanso" stated: "Next is the last new Metalocalypse of the year. It's taking a break 'til 2008. After all, the holidays are brutal enough, so you metal fiends will have to make do with the old eps or the CD, or go back to college and catch the tour before it runs out". Season 2 was relaunched on April 6, 2008, starting with "Dethwedding".
  • Each episode of season 3 is 21 minutes long.[18]
  • Season 4 returned to the 11 minute runtime.
