Adult Swim has released a teaser trailer giving fans of The Venture Bros. what they’ve been not-so-patiently waiting for since March 2016: a premiere date for Season 7.
The new footage depicts Rusty and Dean Venture, Sergeant Hatred and the Order of the Triad — Dr. Orpheus, Jefferson Twilight and The Alchemist — participating in a ritual to invoke the Spell of Revelation, intended to reveal a demon lurking in what we can presume is VenTech Tower, “so that we can do battle with it.” What could possibly go wrong?
Well, for one, Orpheus warns those present that the demon will attempt to use their thoughts and desires against them, which for The Alchemist, may involve that “nutsy” robot, and for Blade analog Jefferson Twilight could be that terrible thing that happened to his mother. Heaven help them all if the creature delves into Rusty’s mind. However, before we can begin to imagine that nightmare, we have to wonder why Dean isn’t there.

The teaser arrives mere days after we got our first peek at Hank and Dean, along with other art, from Season 7 in a preview of Dark Horse’s upcoming hardcover Go Team Venture! The Art and Making of The Venture Bros.
The Venture Bros. returns Sunday, Aug. 5, at midnight ET/PT on Adult Swim.
