If that's not enough info for you, Adult Swim released their own statement describing the special:
"In Metalocalypse: The Doom Star Requiem, we pick up directly after the abduction of Dethklok guitarist Toki Wartooth in the season 4 finale. With his life in danger his only salvation can come from the four most selfish human celebrities on earth—his bandmates, extreme metal band DETHKLOK. Will they be able to get past their own egos to help someone besides themselves? Find out in this one-hour heavy metal rock opera special with a completely original score. Created by Brendon Small, Metalocalypse: The Doom Star Requiem airs in October. Animated one-hour special."
This pretty much sounds like a Metalocalypse made for TV movie, which is fine by me. Some people might be upset about the lack of a proper fifth season. I honestly don't care how they go about continuing the story, as long it means we get some good laughs and awesome music out of it. Also, judging by the end of the last season, it seems that the events the show has been building towards since the beginning are coming to a head, so I wouldn't be surprised if this served as the series finale. If that's the case, this seems like as good a sendoff as any for the show, and I'm sure we'll continue to get more new Dethklok music, even if theres no more Metalocalypse.
In any case, get ready to experience the Klok Opera this Kloktober!
