Disney XD ran an edited version of Naruto Shippuden from October 2009 to October 2011. Now, beginning January 2014 in North America, Naruto Shippuden is making it’s way to Cartoon Network’s late night Adult Swim Toonami block in an uncut fashion! The news comes almost a year after Toonami began it’s return run of the original Naruto series.
To make room for Naruto Shippuden, Toonami will end the original Naruto series second run on November 30. Naruto originally aired on Toonami from 2005 until 2008 and made it’s return December 2012.
It’s unclear what episode Naruto Shippuden will start from, but we are assuming episode 1. Toonami programming, which includes Bleach and One Piece, runs every Sunday morning (or Saturday night depending on how you want to look at it) from 12 Midnight to 6 AM.
