Adult Swim renews 'Robot Chicken'

Adds two seasons of the network's top-rated show

Adult Swim has renewed "Robot Chicken" for an unprecedented two more seasons.

That translates into 40 more episodes of "Robot" to air as a fifth and sixth season. The pickup isn't much of a surprise; the series from Seth Green and Matthew Senreich is currently the network's top-rated show and performs well on DVD (particularly its "Star Wars" parodies).

"We're very excited," Green said. "We never expected to do a second season, let alone a fifth and sixth, so we are thrilled by the audience response and how the show continues to grow internationally."
