XCII is 92.

Really looking forward to this. I wonder when CN Japan will air it? Guess I could check...


Hmmmmm, why 92?

No idea. I haven't seen the new show. Was the first one labeled Episode XCII? Maybe since it's set 50 years after the last episode, they jumped 40 episodes...

(EDIT)
Some (but not much) explanation here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samurai_Jack_(season_5)

"All Samurai Jack episodes are designated by Roman numerals, and the original series ended with episode LII. Season 5 starts with episode XCII."

I loved the beginning of episode 1.

"That was the old Aku, this is the NEW Aku!"

"I thought after I destroyed all of the time portals I would just wait it out, but it has been 50 years and he hasn't aged. All he's done is grown that stupid beard."

lol

Also, loved seeing them bring back the use of light in this show as that battle scene in the temple was badass.
