Steven Universe Is Back in January

The wax and wane of Steven Universe being on air is part and parcel of loving the show—you never know how long it’s going to be on for, when it’s going to go away again, and for how long you’ll be itching for a new set of episodes. Well, the good news is: we know that there’s more on the way very soon.


Cartoon Network has announced its slate of January programming with new batches of Adventure Time (beginning January 23), the final episodes of Regular Show (January 14th-16th), and Steven Universe—which is back for a week of episodes starting January 30th with a double feature. Here’s a brief rundown of each episode:

Monday, Jan. 30: “Steven’s Dream” – A strange dream prompts Steven to search for answers.

Monday, Jan. 30: “Adventures in Light Distortion” – Steven and the Gems take off on a search and recovery mission.

Tuesday, Jan. 31: “Gem Heist” – The Gems try to pull off a heist.

Wednesday, Feb. 1: “The Zoo” – Steven visits a special zoo.

Thursday, Feb. 2: “That Will Be All” – Steven and the Gems make a daring escape!

Daring escapes! Answers! Search and Recovery! Zoos! It’s all kicking off, apparently.


Even though there’s been a few recent one-off episodes, it feels like it’s been forever since there’s been an extended run of episodes for the show—so it’s nice to know it’ll be back soon enough.
