It’s been nearly one year since Squidbillies season 12 concluded and fans are starting to get concerned that Adult Swim has cancelled the series following recent controversy.
Following the rumoured cancellation of Venture Bros, Squidbillies is now the third longest-running Adult Swim series behind Robot Chicken and 12 Oz Mouse.
Season 12 of the classic dark comedy series concluded in September 2019, but fans are starting to get concerned that the show may have been cancelled.
Has Squidbillies been cancelled?
- No, Squidbillies has not been cancelled, but fans were concerned about the future of the series following the firing of Unknown Hinson, the voice of Early Cuyler.
On August 16th, 2020, it was announced that Unknown Hinson (real name Stuart Daniel Baker), the voice of Early Cuyler, had been fired from Squidbillies following comments made towards the Black Lives Matter movement and singer Dolly Parton.
Creators of the series, Jim Fortier and Dave Willis then took to Twitter to explain: “The views he [Hinson] expressed do not reflect our own personal values or the values of the show that we and many others have worked hard to produce over the past 15 years. For those reasons, production of Squidbillies will continue without Mr. Baker, effective immediately.”
Has Squidbillies been renewed?
- Yes, according to the Swimpedia Twitter account, the series has been renewed for a 13th season on Adult Swim.
The news that Squidbillies would be making another return to our screen was announced back in 2019 alongside the release date for season 12.
Whilst the recent controversy involving Hinson has cast doubt on the future of the series, there is no indication that the 13th season of Squidbillies won’t go ahead as planned.
Squidbillies season 13: Release date…
- At the time of writing, an official release date for season 13 of Squidbillies has not been confirmed.
Each of the previous four seasons of Squidbillies has premiered between 8 and 11 months after the previous finale, but its already been a year since season 12 wrapped up.
Assuming that season 13 was already in production and experienced minor delays associated with the ongoing public health crisis, we would expect a late 2020 premiere.
However, with no new update on season 13 being revealed and now another delay due to recasting Early Cuyler, this will most likely be pushed back until early-2021.
We will bring you updates on the future of Squidbillies as soon as more information is revealed.
