The full origin of Marceline the Vampire Queen is set to be revealed in a very special Adventure Time event. Check out the new, special opening credits to the eight-episode, four-night miniseries, and a very different tour of Ooo than what we’re used to seeing.

“Stakes,” as its titled, chronicles Marcy’s past as it comes back to haunt her in the present:

Marceline the Vampire Queen wishes to be an undead, red-sucker no more, but can Princess Bubblegum concoct a cure? At the same time, five of Marceline’s most fearsome foes return from her past. What might her most powerful nemesis, the Vampire King, have in store? Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum and their friends join the Vampire Queen’s fight against her immortal enemies.


Seeing as we know the tragic origin of Ice King, it’s high time we get all the details on Marcy’s mysterious history. And if we’re going to have to sit through a mountain of “stakes” puns to get there, then so be it.

The first part of “Stakes” will premiere on Monday evening, November 16th, and run through Thursday the 19th.
