Yesterday, Telltale Games released the fifth and final episode for its current season of Tales of Monkey Island, an adventure series following LucasArts' swashbuckling ne'er-do-well Guybrush Threepwood. Of course, that won't be the last stop in Telltale's revival of the adventure game genre. This week, Telltale launched a new Web site indicating that its Sam & Max series will return in 2010.

Though Telltale didn't delve into specifics of what gamers can expect from the new season of Sam & Max. However, the interstellar theme of the site indicates that the buttoned-down crime dog and his "hyperkinetic rabbit-thingy" companion will be undertaking new detective work in space. The site also contains a variety of embedded images, including what appear to be a Max-themed spaceship, a mustachioed Sam, and a demonic telephone, among others.
