It's finally official!
The show, which will get a sneak peek Monday at SXSW, is set to premiere in the summer in the U.S., followed by a rollout around the world. A standalone original mobile game, titled OK K.O.! Lakewood Plaza Turbo, also launched last year based on Jones-Quartey’s short, of the same name, from Cartoon Network's artist program.


Edit: The show opening was storyboarded by Kill La Kill director and co-founder of Studio Trigger, Hiroyuki Imaishi.

Edit 2: Post from Capybara Games with several screenshots from the console game.

Edit 3: You'll be able to watch the show's musical score created live online.

Hate to be the guy that brags, but called it. :D

Like with Mighty Magiswords in 2015, it was gonna happen here to this show as well. But still, very excited for OK KO (aka Lakewood Plaza Turbo). It's ashame that they can't their usual Upfront to Cartoon Network nowadays. But still, exciting news to hear. :)

In an ocean of bad mistakes, CN managed to do something right for once.

Finally, now we're getting more originals (and not reboots and third-parties).

And it's coming out this summer? Jeez, that's kinda quick, but I'm definitely looking forward to it!

Well that was a long wait but at least its release isn't going to be a long wait like its announcement.

I finally recently got around to seeing the original pilot and the shorts. While it actually wasn't the pilot I was most interested in seeing greenlit (that would be Twelve Forever), I still thought it was still pretty good and I'm glad it was greenlit. Looking forward to seeing it this summer!

I'm really psyched for this, really seeing promise in this new show based off the shorts and this theme song's anime-esque style. With OK KO and Summer Camp Island being the newest original cartoons announced, I feel like CN is in it's early stages of unveiling it's new lineup of original cartoons for the network. Summer Camp Island may have some people a little unsure due to the animation, but I'm hoping for the best with it. Hopefully they green light Infinity Train and Victor and Valentino next, because I see a lot of potential in those shows as well. Plus with Adventure Time and Gumball (possibly, not officially confirmed) coming to an end soon, we need some more cartoons to fill up those slots and help lower the overbearing and insane TTG reruns.

We actually don't know if Gumball is ending. Ben Bocquelet said it was, then he pulled back on that and said he was just leaving after season 6, so I'm not sure what's going on with it.

Oh yeah! Now this is something I know a lot of people have been waiting to hear about. They basically had everything except a show up to this point.

That theme song is going to be in my head for a while, and I love how much the animation just 'pops' right off the screen.

Next to Might Magiswords, this has been the only other show on CN I've been looking forward to. I hope the show will be as good as the shorts and pilot.
That opening is friggin amazing, btw.

Yeah my bad, I meant to put a note of it "possibly ending" in there. Though I kind of hope it does end after that season, just don't want the show to suddenly disintegrate in it's humor and goodness by going on for that much longer.

I really do need to see Unikitty, Puppycorn, Dr. Fox, Hawkodile, and Richard come back for more new adventures this summer!
Happy Father's Day to all dads out there (including my own)!
Homestar Runner was trending yesterday and I didn't notice. Is the series all up ons again?
Amphibia looks pretty deece so far. The premise is like the isekai anime genre, except the main protagonist isn't stuck in a typical fantasy RPG world that most isekai anime take place in.
