Earlier this morning, Netflix announced that The Cuphead Show!, the animated series based on StudioMDHR’s run-and-gun cult classic, Cuphead: “Don’t Deal with the Devil”, will debut on the streaming service, February 18, 2022. You can watch the brand new trailer below:
Based on the award-winning game, The Cuphead Show! follows the misadventures of the impulsive Cuphead and his pliable brother Mugman. Each of the 12 episodes scheduled to launch mid-February will run for around 12 minutes apiece and combine Fleischer-Esque sass with slapstick antics and mildly dark humour. The game’s creators, brothers Chad and Jared Moldenhauer, have signed on as executive producers on the series, with the episodes directed by Spongebob veteran Adam Paloian and Disney’s Clayton Morrow.
Netflix has also launched a companion site called Cuphead Countdown where you can help Cuphead and Mugman fight the devil and free souls to get your hands on some exclusive digital content before the show’s official launch next month.
Hellooooo beautiful world! Cuphead here, and I've got Mugman with me. We just discovered a secret way to recover stolen souls from the Devil who is keeping our new show hostage. We need your help!#Cuphead#TheCupheadShowpic.twitter.com/GzGYsKsCJg
