Adventure Time: Fionna & Cake will be led by fearless sword-wielding adventurer, Fionna and her magical best friend and talking cat, Cake. It hails from executive producer and showrunner Adam Muto, with Cartoon Network Studios set as its production studio.

“With the help of the former Ice King, Simon Petrikov, the titular duo embark on a multiverse-hopping adventure and journey of self-discovery,” reads the synopsis. “All the while a powerful new antagonist determined to track them down and erase them from existence, lurks in the shadows.”

The titular characters first appeared during the original series’ third season, where they were introduced as alternate versions of Finn and Jake. They were created by the Ice King through the fan-fiction stories he wrote. The duo appeared in three more episodes and were also mentioned throughout the series’ run.
