The Cuphead Show is currently in production and will be arriving on Netflix at an undetermined date.
There are a whole lot of TV shows based on video games in production right now, but today, Netflix might’ve potentially announced the most exciting show of them all.
As revealed by developer Studio MDHR, it was announced that a show based on Cuphead is now being worked on over at Netflix. This show, appropriately titled The Cuphead Show, will feature the titular character Cuphead and his pal Mugman as they have adventures across the Inkwell Isles.
Considering Cuphead is directly based off of cartoons from the 1930s, the property’s transition to the realm of TV is likely an easy one. While no footage of the show was revealed along with today’s announcement, Studio MDHR said that The Cuphead Show will still retain the same throwback animation style from the past that was seen in the video game. As of now, no release window for the series has been given.
Personally, I don’t watch much TV anymore nowadays but the prospect of this series has me incredibly excited. I don’t know if The Cuphead Show will tell the same story of the video game just in a different format, but I’m really looking forward to whatever comes of this. At the very least, I’d expect that the animation will be fantastic.
There’s still a lot left to learn about The Cuphead Show but we should start hearing more about it in the coming months. One more specifics of the series come about, we’ll be sure to let you know.
