Well this is a bummer. Metalocalypse fans have been campaigning and hoping for one final season on Adult Swim, but according to creator Brendon Small, it’s not going to happen. Here’s what he told Loudwire: “There was no debate, there wasn’t even a returned phone call. It was a hard ‘no.’ It was about as hard of a ‘no’ as you could possibly get … It’s basically like a crappy relationship at the end where we should probably break up, but they kept on dangling the idea of doing this thing in front of me and then dangling other TV show ideas and stuff like that. What I think really happened was the campaigners drove Adult Swim insane. I think Adult Swim, for some reason, took it very personally. The truth was that people were saying, ‘Hey, what the hell? Where’s our show? We’re here for this show, can you give it to us? We’re gonna watch it like crazy,’ and Adult Swim said no. I think somebody’s thin-skinned and somebody got their feeling hurt.”
