"'Adventure Time' changed the definition of what a kids' TV series could be, and it's had a resounding impact upon popular culture around the world," said chief content officer at Cartoon Network Rob Sorcher in a statement regarding the news.

"Cartoon Network Studios is proud to have brought together this group of brilliant artists and animators who helped make Adventure Time one of the most critically acclaimed TV series of a generation," he continued.

"Adventure Time," which launched in 2010, follows the zany and surreal adventures of Finn the Human and Jake the Dog as they explore the magical land of Ooo.

The critically acclaimed series created by Pendleton Ward has won six Emmys and two BAFTAs and has been featured in multiple video games, comic books and other merchandise such as action figures and t-shirts.

"'Adventure Time' was a passion project for the people on the crew who poured their heart into the art and stories. We tried to put into every episode something genuine and telling from our lives, and make a show that was personal to us, and that had jokes too! I'm really happy that it connected with an audience for so long. It's a special thing, I think," added Ward.

Before it reaches its conclusion, various specials and miniseries are also planned.

Recently, Cartoon Network announced a new video game featuring Finn and Jake crossing other with other animated properties titled Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers.
