Adventure Time is winding down, but the fun isn’t over yet. Cartoon Network has revealed that fans have one more season, plus miniseries and specials, to look forward to before the series ends in 2018, according to Deadline.

By the time the cartoon officially concludes, it will have aired over the course of eight years. Created by Pendleton Ward, Adventure Time premiered on April 5, 2010. The series centers on Finn the Human (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and Jake the Dog (John DiMaggio), a duo living in the post-apocalyptic Land of Ooo.

Adventure Time has earned serious acclaim in the years since it hit TV — its accolades include six Emmys and a Peabody Award. The show has hooked both children and adults alike, and it has featured a variety of celebrity guests. Neil Patrick Harris, Andy Samberg, George Takei, and Rainn Wilson are among those who have lent their voices to the cartoon.

Adventure Time changed the definition of what a kids’ TV series could be, and it’s had a resounding impact upon popular culture around the world,” said Rob Sorcher, chief content officer for Cartoon Network, in a statement. “Cartoon Network Studios is proud to have brought together this group of brilliant artists and animators who helped make Adventure Time one of the most critically acclaimed TV series of a generation.”

The network celebrated Adventure Time in a tweet, highlighting that there are still hours of the show to come.

Ward also addressed the end. “Adventure Time was a passion project for the people on the crew who poured their heart into the art and stories,” he said in a statement. “We tried to put into every episode something genuine and telling from our lives, and make a show that was personal to us, and that had jokes, too! I’m really happy that it connected with an audience for so long. It’s a special thing, I think.”

Saying goodbye is hard to do, of course, but it is easier knowing that we have plenty of Adventure Time left.
