Marvel TV and FXX (Fox Television) are expanding upon their television deal as Deadline announces that they’ve ordered a 10-epsiode Deadpool adult focused animated series. Donald Glover will act as the series showrunner and co-writer alongside Atlanta’s Stephen Glover.
FXX has given a 10-episode series order to a Marvel’s Deadpool animated adult action-comedy series, an adaptation of the hit Marvel character, with Atlanta creator/executive producer/star Donald Glover and writer Stephen Glover attached as showrunners, executive producers and writers.
The untitled Marvel’s Deadpool series, set to debut in 2018, is produced by Marvel TV in association with FX Productions and ABC Signature Studios.
“How much more fun could this be? Deadpool, Donald and FX – the perfect fit for the Merc with the Mouth!, said Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb. “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.”
It’s expected that Glover will have a role possibly voicing Wade since Ryan is a busy guy.
The show will start airing sometime next year on FXX.
