The Crystal Gems are here to save the day once more with news of their return to our screens in May. After a long hiatus a four-week Steven Universe event titled “In Too Deep” will kick off May 12 in what can only be a month of pure joy for fans around the world.
Here is the teaser for the event:
The teaser sees Steven and the Crystal Gems — Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl, and newcomer Peridot — go head-to-head with Malachite, who, as fans may remember, is the hostile fusion of Jasper and Lapis Lazuli. Malachite emerges from her prison at the bottom of the ocean intent of destroying our five heroes. The Crystal Gems team up to become Alexandrite, but it is unclear whether this fusion will be enough!
Meanwhile, the threat of the Cluster, which promises to destroy the earth from the inside out, still looms, as well as the possibility of more unwelcome gem visitors after Peridot contacted Yellow Diamond.
The “In Too Deep” event unfolds over five episodes — two back to back during a 30-minute special on May 12, and one per week for the following three weeks. Tune in at 7 p.m. ET/PT on Cartoon Network
The episode titles and order have now been confirmed by the Cartoon Network schedule, although the final episode seems to be absent from the list. But thanks to the leaked European schedule we can assume that the missing episode is either "Hit The Diamond" or "Steven Floats." And both of these have very interesting implications considering the hints dropped by the trailer.
Cartoon Network renewed the show last month for two more seasons, through season five.
