In 2015, Dethklok/Metalocalypse fans had been campaigning for one final season of the show. In April 2016, the show's television home, Adult Swim launched a petition to…make Adult Swim sign the petition… to bring back Metaloclypse, as well as a a live video feed, of the official fax machine, with all entries going directly into a recycling bin.
In essence, the joke was indicative of how seriously Adult Swim took the requests from fans for more Metaloclypse, as creator Brendon Small revealed in a 2016 interview with Loudwire. He mentioned Adult Swim had no interest in bringing the show back, in-spite fans' demand:
“There was no debate, there wasn’t even a returned phone call. It was a hard ‘no.’ It was about as hard of a ‘no’ as you could possibly get … It’s basically like a crappy relationship at the end where we should probably break up, but they kept on dangling the idea of doing this thing in front of me and then dangling other TV show ideas and stuff like that.
“What I think really happened was [‘Metalocalypse Now’ campaigners] drove Adult Swim insane. I think Adult Swim, for some reason, took it very personally. The truth was that people were saying, ‘Hey, what the hell? Where’s our show? We’re here for this show, can you give it to us? We’re gonna watch it like crazy,’ and [Adult Swim] said no. I think somebody’s thin-skinned and somebody got their feeling hurt.”
Dethklok played their first show in five years this past November.
