Netflix has confirmed that The Cuphead Show! will begin streaming on February 18th.
As the title suggests, the animated series is an adaptation of Cuphead, the hit 2017 run-and-gun platformer from Canadian indie developer Studio MDHR.
Produced by Netflix Animation, the 12-episode series follows Cuphead (Tru Valentino) and Mugman (Frank Todaro) as they get up to all kinds of misadventures on the Inkwell Isles. In addition to the two bowl-shaped brothers, other characters from the game set to make an appearance include Ms. Chalice (Grey Griffin), the Devil (Luke Millington-Drake) and King Dice (Wayne Brady).
Chad and Jared Moldenhauer, who founded Studio MDHR, serve as executive producers on The Cuphead Show!
2022 is set to be a big year for Cuphead. Beyond the animated series and the fifth anniversary of the game coming in September, the long-awaited The Delicious Last Course expansion is set to release on June 30th, 2022 on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and PC. The DLC will add Ms. Chalice as a new playable character alongside new bosses and levels.
