One Piece Gets Saturday Evening Encore Showing on Adult Swim
posted on by Daryl Lee Hale
Cartoon Network's sister network Adult Swim is listing an encore showing of One Piece this Saturday at 8:30 p.m. ET. Adult Swim's Jason DeMarco confirmed via Twitter that the showing is an experiment and One Piece may keep the slot "if it does well."
The encore showing of One Piece will include last week's episode and is not part of the Toonami block. New episodes will continue to air during the Toonami block at 2:30 a.m. Saturday nights (Sunday mornings).
The network began airing episodes of Dragon Ball Z Kai on Saturday nights at 8 p.m. last month.
Toonami recently cut its runtime to 3.5 hours. The current schedule is:
|12:00 a.m.||Dragon Ball Z Kai|
|12:30 a.m.||Kill la Kill|
|01:00 a.m.||Naruto Shippuden|
|01:30 a.m.||Inuyasha the Final Act|
|02:00 a.m.||Gurren Lagann|
|02:30 a.m.||One Piece|
|03:00 a.m.||Deadman Wonderland|
Sword Art Online II will debut on Toonami on March 28.
