Venture Bros. fans are going to have to wait a while before seeing any new episodes. According to creator Jackson Publick, "Doc and I are in training for the upcoming production marathon that will be Season 3 of The Venture Bros. Rising no later than 5:30am (EST), our regimen consists of various isometric exercises, wind sprints, calisthenics, and spirited games of steal-the-bacon followed by a 'power shake' of Pixie Stix and coffee, for protein."
Unfortunately, "The bad news about production is you won't be seeing any new episodes until probably this time next year, since we won't start getting them back from Korea until around the first of the year or so. Such is the nature of traditional cel animation. We did experiment with concocting a super-hurry-up production schedule that would enable us to air the first four episodes of Season 3 in December, but that proved pointless because we would end up with a frustrating, Lost-like scenario wherein the season would be broken up by a three month hiatus, just when it was getting interesting (unlike Lost). Also, I've been informed that nobody really watches much TV in December and the ratings suck. "
The good news though is that they've been picked up for Season Four.
