superhero weekly feature themeFrom ANN:
Network had gauged interest in block's return after temporary return on April Fool's Day!

Adult Swim, the cable and satellite network that is paired with Cartoon Network, revealed on Wednesday that it will bring back its Toonami programming block starting on Saturday, May 26. The network has not yet announced its lineup for the new block.

The company had asked its Twitter followers in April if they would want the block back. Cartoon Network temporarily brought back Toonami on April Fool's Day, with reruns of such anime as Dragon Ball Z, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, Tenchi Muyo!, Outlaw Star, Blue Submarine No. 6, Trigun, and more. The marathon had even included newly produced bumper videos of Toonami's mascot T.O.M.

Cartoon Network ended Toonami in 2008 after an 11-year run.

Update: TV Guide lists Adult Swim's anime programming on May 27 as follows:
12:00 a.m. - Bleach
12:30 a.m. - Fullmetal Alchemist
1:00 a.m. - Durarara!!
1:30 a.m. - Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
2:00 a.m. - FLCL
2:30 a.m. - Cowboy Bebop
3:00 a.m. - Bleach
3:30 a.m. - Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG
4:00 a.m. - Bleach
4:30 a.m. - Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
5:00 a.m. - Durarara!!
5:30 a.m. - Cowboy Bebop

ikr? the only real difference is that they replaced Inuyasha w/ Cowboy Bebop. well, at least this means we get more anime in general! :shrug:

No. Cowboy Bebop was on last weekend. I saw it.

I'm looking forward to if they get a different line-up, or at least bring back the Rising Sun with Toonami.

T.O.M afterwards, he's also known as Spike from Cowboy Bebop and Goemon from Digimon and countless more. He also did the, "Real Fans of Genius" thing with Vic and both as good friends. ^^
