Variety has reported that a new animated Deadpool series has been green-lit. The series will debut on FXX in 2018 and the first season will run for 10 episodes. Unlike most of the standard TV animated series by Marvel, the Deadpool animated series is targeted towards adults so expect more insane action.
Donald Glover and Stephen Glover will be working as the showrunners / executive producers and writers for the series. Jeph Loeb from Marvel along with Jim Chory will be the executive producers on the project. The currently untitled series will be produced by Marvel Television along with FX Productions and ABC Signature Studios for FXX.
Donald Glover and Jeph Loeb had this to say about the project.
“How much more fun could this be? Deadpool, Donald and FX – the perfect fit for the Merc with the Mouth,” Loeb said. “We’re thrilled that our relationship with FX that started with ‘Legion’ continues with what is sure to be a groundbreaking show in adult animation.”
No other details about the series are confirmed at this time so stay tuned for updates.
