Previous week's episode to run after Dragon Ball Z Kai

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.
