During the day, the channel's programs were all subject to censorship. From 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. CET, the channel was branded as Toonami Unlimited, with its TV series and AEW Dynamite subject to little to no censorship. In September 2020, Toonami was rebranded and became a young adult channel. Since 24 July 2019, an Adult Swim block is broadcast nightly between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m. CET.

HistoryEdit

On 3 February, it was confirmed by Toonami Squad in an email with Turner that Toonami would be launching in France on 11 February 2016. For the first four years, the channel's programming was geared toward the young children and teen demographics.[2][3]

In September 2020, Toonami underwent a rebranding with a new programming strategy, which targeted the teen and young adult demographics with programs no longer subject to censorship during the night. Despite now targeting a more mature audience, the channel kept its Adult Swim block.
