The following is the complete list of lineups that were broadcast on Adult Swim's Toonami block from 2020-Present. If you're wondering why the dates are for Saturday not Sunday, it's because the majority of broadcast networks, including Cartoon Network/Adult Swim, schedule a day of programming from 6:00 AM to 6:00 AM. So Toonami airs on Saturday nights because Sunday does not begin from a broadcasting perspective until 6:00 AM.
