"Robot Chicken" Hatches Seventh Season

Adult Swim Orders A New Season of Emmy(R)-winning Stop-Motion Animation Series

Adult Swim announced today it has ordered another season of Robot Chicken, the Emmy(R) winning series by creators and executive producers Seth Green and Matthew Senreich. Season six is currently airing all new episodes on Sunday nights at midnight (ET/PT) on Adult Swim, featuring an all-star voice cast. Robot Chicken season seven will premiere in 2013.

Robot Chicken uses stop-motion animation to bring pop-culture parodies to life in a modern take on the variety/sketch show format. The Emmy Award(R)-winning series began airing in February 2005 and remains among the top-rated original series on Adult Swim. Robot Chicken is created and executive produced by Stoopid Monkey Productions' Seth Green and Matthew Senreich and their Stoopid Buddy Stoodios partners, Buddy Systems' John Harvatine IV and Eric Towner, who also serve as executive producers, and Janet Dimon as supervising producer. Green and Senreich also write and voice and Zeb Wells directs the multiple Annie Award-winning series. Robot Chicken head writers/co-executive producers Douglas Goldstein and Tom Root are joined by season six writers Matthew Beans, Rachel Bloom, Mike Fasolo, Jessica Gao, Breckin Meyer, Jason Reich, Mehar Sethi, Tom Sheppard, Erik Weiner, and Wells.

The Robot Chicken DC Comics Special kicked off current season in September with the awesomeness of the DC Comics universe of characters as only Robot Chicken can, with amazing guest stars and the stop-motion sketch comedy you've come to love after three amazing Robot Chicken: Star Wars specials and five previous seasons of the popular Adult Swim series.

In season six, Robot Chicken welcomes the voice talent of 50 Cent, Malin Akerman, Elizabeth Banks, Sarah Chalke, Kat Dennings, Sam Elliott, Ben Foster, Whoopi Goldberg, Ke$ha, Robert Kirkman, Stan Lee, Zachary Levi, Seth MacFarlane, Breckin Meyer, J.B. Smoove, Liev Schreiber, Jon Stewart, Patrick Stewart, Stanley Tucci, Joss Whedon, Olivia Wilde, Alex Winter, and Evan Rachel Wood.

Robot Chicken won the 2010 Emmy(R) for Outstanding Short-Format Animated Program, along with many other Emmy(R) and Annie Awards. The 100th episode of Robot Chicken aired earlier this year and the show's DVDs are among the best sellers in Adult Swim's home entertainment catalog.
