King Star King on Adultswim.com
King Star King was originally pitched to be a companion series to the Adult Swim original, Superjail!, which is returning to Adult Swim on June 15th for its fourth season. Well, now it looks like King Star King is getting a change in distribution. The first 6 episodes of King Star King premiered on Adultswim.com on June 15, 2014. The series marks the first original series from Adult Swim to be streamed exclusively online.
The decision was made in late May after AdultSwim.com put out a poll seeing if their viewer-base would prefer to watch brand-new episodes of King Star King either in bulk-viewing or in a weekly setting.
