"Superjail!" Gets Released from Solitary and Returns to Adult Swim on April 3

Crazier Animation and New Cheeseburger Riffs Soar Over The Apocalyptic Din

The hit series Superjail! is getting slammed back in general population for a second season of destruction premiering Sunday, April 3 at midnight (ET, PT) on Adult Swim. Double the insanity. Double the crazy. Double the pain of being kicked in the guts really hard. Season 2 makes Season 1 - which had a body count in the tens of thousands - look like Steel Magnolias.

Superjail! returns to Adult Swim with ten new episodes produced at Titmouse Studios in N.Y. Series creators and executive producers Christy Karacas (Cartoon Sushi, Robotomy) and Stephen Warbrick (Beavis and Butthead, Daria) teamed up again to take this over-the-top animated series to the next level. Chris McCulloch (The Venture Bros.) returned as a consulting producer this season and lent his talents with story editing and voice-overs. David Wain (Childrens Hospital, The State) and Christy Karacas are also included in the voice cast.

Fast-paced animation, flying guts, creepy underlings, and plenty of prison fights dominate the Warden's chaotic prison at Superjail!. The blood flows like wine and the line between criminal and keeper gets blurrier by the minute. Picture a kaleidoscope of entrails meets Jon Waters meets Shawshank damnation plus a sweaty muscle woman minus primetime sensibility. You are hereby guilty of being given what you asked for.

Maximum levels of rock will be achieved as Cheeseburger - the band behind Superjail!'s popular theme song, "Comin' Home" and for which Karacas is a guitarist - brings even more face melting riffs to the table for Season 2. Peppered throughout the season's episodes will be tracks from Cheeseburger's upcoming sophomore release, Another Night Down The Drain, with such songs as "Party Song," "Big Night," and "Winner" among others providing the soundtrack to the season. The album will be released on CD and as a digital download on May 3 from Williams Street Records, Adult Swim's independent music label.
