Donald Glover and FXX Team Up for New Deadpool Animated Series

You may not have thought a new animated Deadpool series could make it on TV without drastically changing the character, but not to fear, FXX is here.

The new series is created by Donald Glover (Atlanta, Community) along with his brother and Atlanta co-writer Stephen Glover. Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory are attached as executive producers. FXX is taking the animated Deadpool series straight-to-series with 10 episodes starting in 2018.

No word yet on the voice cast, including the Merc With a Mouth himself, but Marvel and FXX, home to Archer, are excited about the new partnership per Variety.

How much more fun could this be? Deadpool, Donald and FX – the perfect fit for the Merc with the Mouth,” said 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.
