ENGLISH DUB OF "DRAGON BALL SUPER" HIT ANIME SERIES TO PREMIERE ON ADULT SWIM'S TOONAMI JANUARY 7, 2017 at 8 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. ET

Episodes from New Storyline by Creator Akira Toriyama

LOS ANGELES, CA - December 6, 2016. Dragon Ball fans everywhere just received the biggest gift of the holiday season. Toei Animation Inc., Funimation� Entertainment and Adult Swim are pleased to announce their partnership to bring "Dragon Ball Super" to TV audiences starting next January. "Dragon Ball Super" is the first new storyline in more than 18 years from original creator Akira Toriyama and the Dragon Ball franchise, which was first introduced to the U.S. more than 20 years ago. Adult Swim will begin airing the U.S. English dub of "Dragon Ball Super" Season 1 during the Toonami block starting on January 7, 2017 at 8 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. ET. Season 1, which totals 26 episodes, encompasses the Battle of Gods and Resurrection 'F' story arcs. New episodes of "Dragon Ball Super" will air each Saturday.

""Dragon Ball Super" is more than the latest adventure in the Dragon Ball saga - It's a collaboration between the series original creator, Akira Toriyama and a passionate team of men and women who are both longtime partners and talented newcomers. "Dragon Ball Super" comes with everything viewers can hope for after waiting 18 long years for a new series - impressible dangers to overcome, the reuniting of beloved characters, and new additions to the mythos that will rock Dragon Ball's very foundation," said Masayuki Endo, President and CEO of Toei Animation Inc. "We are very excited to return "Dragon Ball Super" to its U.S. broadcast home on Adult Swim."

"Toonami and the Dragon Ball franchise have a long and storied history together in the U.S.," said Jason DeMarco, senior vice president of on-air for Adult Swim. "We are thrilled to be premiering "Dragon Ball Super" to our audience and keeping Dragon Ball on Toonami!"

Funimation will be producing the U.S. English dub of "Dragon Ball Super" that will air on Toonami The "Dragon Ball Super" cast features veteran voice actors from previous Dragon Ball series including Se�n Schemmel (Goku), Christopher R. Sabat (Vegeta), Jason Douglas (Beerus), Ian Sinclair (Whis) and Sonny Strait (Krillin) - all of whom starred in last year's hit movie "Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'," which became the 9th highest grossing anime film of all time in U.S.A..

"We're extremely pleased to join with Toei Animation in this broadcast partnership with Adult Swim to bring "Dragon Ball Super" to a whole new generation of TV audiences," said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and founder of Funimation. "I have no doubt that 'Dragon Ball Super' will eclipse the television success of the original Dragon Ball series that first aired here more than 20 years ago when anime was still new to the U.S. Those kids that grew up watching Dragon Ball now have kids of their own."

As part of the English dub production and in advance of the broadcast television premiere, a new DragonBallSuperOfficial.com website has been launched that serves as a hub for all things Dragon Ball. The site will feature exclusive content, videos, graphics and character bios as well as the latest news on the franchise.
