Still guided by executive producers Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, the stop-motion animated television series is planning to profile and parody the likes of Tila Tequila, Ron Moore, and James Bond among many others, whose own stardom seems to have warped their worldview beyond repair.
The fourth season will consist of ten episodes, and will kick off on Sunday, December 7th, 2008 at 11:30pm (ET). As the new season picks up, Seth and Matt return as puppets themselves, searching for work with the apparent cancellation of Robot Chicken, they seek help from a number of sources in the TV community. Unfortunately for these exec producers: Joss Whedon hasn't the time for peons such as them ("You think you're worthy of writing in… the Whedon-verse?"); and Seth MacFarlane is too busy basking in the sunlight of his recent fame, using his phenomenal knack of "the recall" ("That's not as crazy as the time…").
Robot Chicken also promises to give viewers a glimpse into the only way to kill a werewolf, who Iron Man's unexpected ally is, and what "the Composite Santa Clause" is. Robot Chicken is created and executive produced by Green and Senreich under their own Stoopid Monkey Productions, in conjunction with Alex Bulkley and Corey Campodonico's ShadowMachine Films.
In January 2009, Adult Swim is planning to bulk up its on-air time even more, by including the 10:00pm hour, every night of the week. The anticipated addition of the newly acquired King of the Hill, network executives hope, will help sweeten the deal for carrying over devoted viewers from one year to the next. One of Adult Swim's pride and joy, Robot Chicken was the program with the most-watched telecast for the late night network this past Third Quarter, whereby the September 14th airing delivered an audience of Men 18-34 of a notable 941,000.
