Netflix e King Features Syndicate, a part of Hearst Entertainment e Syndication, they are bringing back the popular indie platform game Cuphead with a animated series called The Cuphead Show!
Cuphead, developed and published by Studio MDHR, was published in the 2017 with great critical and public success. The game is created with hand-drawn animations inspired by the classic 30 cartoons and also offers a rather high level of challenge. He has sold over 4 million copies and won the award for best independent game at the 2017 Game Awards and a BAFTA award for his music.
Coming to you in full color and cine-sound, it's ... The Cuphead Show! Witness the wondrous Inkwell Isles as you have never seen before in an original series inspired by the classic animation styles of the 1930s. Now in production by the talented team at @Netflix Animation! pic.twitter.com/4xA59eVLra

The new animated series expands the game world and its characters. The protagonists, of course, will be Cuphead and his brother Mugman who make a pact with the devil.
CJ Kettler (Carmen Sandiego) will be the producer for King Features while the creators of Cuphead, brothers Chad and Jared Moldenhauer, will work as executive producers for Studio MDHR. The series will be produced by Netflix Animation.
In short, a high-level productive cast for what we hope will be a great series. And we hope above all to be completely hand-drawn!
