Adult Swim have announced that the eighth season of Robot Chicken will air this fall, kicking off with a new DC Comics special, Robot Chicken DC Comics Special III: Friendship Is Magic.
“This time around,” the release says of the special, “Batman and Superman’s bromance takes a competitive turn and the fate of the universe somehow hangs in the balance!”
The special will feature an all-star cast, including Adam West and Burt Ward from the original Batman TV series, as well as Nathan Fillion, Weird Al Yankovic, Alex Borstein, Giovanni Ribisi, and Alfred Molina.
As for the new season, “Robot Chicken season eight has begun production with plans to get eight times the normal number of superstar actors to provide their voices for the show. (Correction: The previous sentence is financially impossible. Robot Chicken will feature our normal number of famous voice actors, which is a lot.)”
