During the last years, infinite train has established itself as one of television’s most critically acclaimed animated shows due to its writing, art style, and unique ability to tackle complex themes and characters.
Created by Owen Dennis (Regular show) for Cartoon Network, infinite train is an anthology series with four seasons (or “Books” as the series calls it) each following the adventures of passengers transported on a seemingly endless interdimensional train, where each carriage is an incredibly mysterious new environment.
Travelers must navigate a kaleidoscope of strange worlds and characters while solving puzzles and battling monsters in order to escape the train and return home.
Each season consists of 10 episodes, with First book – The vivacious child released in 2019, Book Two – Cracked Reflection and Volume 3 – The cult of the conductor in 2020, and the final season, Book Four – Duoin 2021 – there was also a series of shorter episodes uploaded in 2019 to bridge the gap between season one and two, titled Train documentaries.
infinite train originally aired on Cartoon Network in the US, but was moved to the HBO Max streaming platform starting with the third book – sadly, in August 2022, the show was completely removed by Warner Bros Discovery without much warning, alongside 35 other titles like the cartoon Close enough.
The removal followed a pattern of other HBO Max shows and movies being removed from the platform, and left fans with infinite train saddened by the sudden cancellation of such a great show. As much as it stings, fortunately there are other options to look at infinite train.
