Fans of the Adventure Time franchise have been looking forward to its spin-off, Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake, which aired on Max earlier this year. The new animated series caters to an older audience and follows the adventures of Fionna the Human (a gender-swapped version of Finn) and Cake the Cat (a gender-swapped version of Jake).

Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake's debut season will comprise 10 episodes. This is similar to the first season of the original Adventure Time series, which ran for 10 seasons before ending its run in 2018. This also alludes to the fact that if fans enjoy the series, it may get renewed for another season, just like its predecessor.

Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake - The story so far

The Max spinoff sequel provides the origin story for its dynamic duo. Prismo summons the two main characters to his Time Room, where they make the startling discovery that Prismo actually created Fionna and Cake as his own universe after getting tired of doing the same thing for other people.

Adventure Time Fionna and Cake's story so far dictates that the duo is in for a journey full of threats, surprises, and more. With old characters like Ice King, Prismo, and others returning to the series and new adversaries planning to erase Fionna and Cake from existence, the show is sure to have fans on the edge of their seats.

Fionna and Cake are awakened at the start of the series in a different world without magic, unable to recall their previous experiences.
