Cuphead is getting its own animated series on Netflix

‘The Cuphead Show!’: Netflix & King Features Set Toon Series Based On Popular Video Game

Netflix Animation will produce the series.

The game, which was released in 2017, sports a look inspired by the classic (and terrifying) Max Fleischer cartoons from the 1930s and has sold over 4 million copies since then. Yet despite the game's notorious difficulty, Cuphead has developed a loyal cult following, so much so that Netflix has officially made a decision to throw their weight behind it.

Serena fined $10K for Wimbledon court damage
Serena Williams says she sent an apology to Naomi Osaka for her behavior in last year's US Open final . At times during the match, Williams was tested by the referee which led to some on-court outbursts.

When the new animated series pours onto Netflix, the show will expand upon the characters and world of the game, which revolves around heroes Cuphead and Mugman making a deal with the devil after a high-stakes poker game goes south. Those included works like Betty Boop and Popeye. CJ Kettler will serve as the executive producer for King Features, with Cuphead creators Chad and Jared Moldenhauer serving as EPs for Studio MDHR. Netflix and Studio MDHR weren't immediately available for comment. Emmy and Annie award victor Dave Wasson (Mickey Mouse Shorts) will also executive produce.

Netflix has announced that it's working on a new Cuphead animated series, aptly titled 'The Cuphead Show!'. Meanwhile, Netflix Animation will produce with Emmy and Annie award victor Dave Wasson, who is also set to executive produce. It'll still be drawn by hand, but digitally instead of on paper.
