Jake and Finn's awesome adventures will soon be over as Cartoon Network has confirmed that the well-loved animated series "Adventure Time" is coming to an end. The network has announced that the series ninth season will be its last after "Adventure Time" Season 8.

The series is slated to release new episodes for "Adventure Time" Season 8 before 2016 ends.  The show's ninth and final season is now in production and is scheduled for 2018, Entertainment Weekly reported. There are still several questions that need to be answered and season 9 is expected to address all of them. Fans would be excited to know if the Ice King will ever find happiness or if Abraham Lincoln has always been considered the ruler of Mars, the news outlet noted.

The series coming to an end after "Adenture Time" Season 8 won't be such a bad thing considering 2018 is still a long wait. Besides, Finn and Jake will return before 2016 ends for another round of crazy and unique adventures. Also, Cartoon Network has issued an official statement revealing that "Adventure Time" season 9 will offer "142 half-hours of content." These hours of content will cover fresh episodes, specials, miniseries and more surprises.

"Adventure Time" Season 8 centers on best friends Finn the human and Jake the dog. Together, they explore the magical Land of Ooo where they meet different colorful characters, make friends along the way, and help those who are in need. It's been six wonderful and remarkable years for the two odd heroes. The animated series, created by Pendleton Ward, first released in 2010 on Cartoon Network and garnered a total of 2.6 million viewers during its premiere, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The series had also won several awards, including the Emmys and Baftas. It has partnered with different industries like toys, comic books, apparel and more, only proving how popular it is.
