The Squidbillies will return to Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim on Sunday, May 16. The program, which airs at Midnight (ET, PT), will feature appearances by a number music and sports stars this season, including Widespread Panic, Drive-By Truckers, Lucinda Williams, Bonnie “Prince” Billy and Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver and graceful dancer Chad Ochocinco. According to Cartoon Network, “Creators Dave Willis and Jim Fortier pulled out their rolodex to create the ten red-neck-iest episodes yet.”
Widespread Panic is scheduled to appear during the show’s season premiere on May 16 when “the discovery of Lil’s secret drug operation brings Widespread Panic to Dougal County.” Drive-By Truckers, Lucinda Williams and Bonnie “Prince” Billy will all appear in the program’s season finale. Adult Swim created a series of vignettes for Widespread Panic’s New Year’s Eve countdown a few years back.
