Plot Synopsis

In this animated 15-minute series, The Warden runs a large maximum-security prison, where the world's worst criminals reside in a chaotic environment. A press release for Season 2 described the series as "a kaleidoscope of entrails meets Jon Waters meets Shawshank damnation plus a sweaty muscle woman minus primetime sensibility." Whether he's taking the inmates on a fantastical pleasure cruise, plotting to stop riots by monitoring the inmates' dreams or holding a science fair for inmates -- and declaring himself the winner -- The Warden, along with his right-hand man Jared, keeps the surrealistic prison in constant chaos. Adult Swim first aired SUPERJAIL! on Sunday, May 13, 2007 at 11:30pm, when it showed the 15-minute pilot. The series officially premiered nearly a year-and-a-half later.
SUPERJAIL returned for its fourth season on Sunday, June 15, 2014 at 11:45pm ET/PT on Adult Swim. Season 4 will feature countless animated atrocities -- from hellfire to space sickness; from spiteful skies to rampaging redneck lizards; from frightening fairy tales to the terrors of tobacco withdrawal -- and every possible act of ultra-violence in between.
