TV Recommendation: SUPERJAIL! (2007-2015)


IMDb Rating: 7.9/10

Not for epileptics, faint-hearted, sick-at-sea, children, grandparents and nausea-prone. Enough said?

“The majority of Superjail! is set inside the eponymous prison, located in an alternate dimension identified as “5612.” Externally, Superjail is built underneath a volcano which is itself located inside of a larger volcano. Internally, it seems to constitute its own reality, where the fabric of time and space is extremely fluid and changes at the whim of the Warden. It has been indicated that the prison itself has a degree of sentience, and that the nature of the prison is fluid according to the perceptions of the individual.

Superjail’s inmate population is stated by Jared to be in excess of 70,000, although the show’s creators mention that the jail processes “billions of inmates”. Superjail is overseen by an individual known only as “The Warden,” an amiable psychopath with apparently magical powers who uses the prison (and prisoners) to satisfy his numerous whims.

It is is an American animated television series produced by Augenblick Studios in its first season, and by Titmouse, Inc. in its second, third, and fourth seasons. A fourth season was confirmed on the Twitter page of David Wain,[3] who voices the character of the Warden.  The pilot episode aired on television on May 13, 2007, and its first season began on September 28, 2008.

On October 30, 2015, Titmouse confirmed at their panel at Comikaze Expo that Superjail! had been cancelled by drawing it along with previously cancelled shows like Motorcity, Tron: Uprising, and Metalocalypse.”
