Cuphead is Getting an Animated Series on Netflix

A game that had very humble beginnings is now en route to get its own TV show on the biggest streaming platform in the world. Cuphead is getting a TV Show called “The Cuphead Show!” that is going to follow the adventures of Cuphead and his brother Mugman.

Studio MDHR’s hit boss-rush title Cuphead is getting an animated series on Netflix. The Cuphead Show will follow Cuphead and his brother Mugman and their adventures in Inkwell Isle. The show won’t be a retelling of the game and will have original stories.

The Cuphead game primarily caught people’s attention thanks to its hand-drawn 1930’s animation style. This art style will carry over to the animated show as well however, it will be animated by Netflix’s own staff and not by Studio MDHR.

The animations will be hand drawn however, they’ll be hand drawn digitally and not on paper.  “The current goal is to stay as far away from [computer-assisted] puppeteer animation as possible”, said Cuphead’s co-creator  Chad Moldenhauer in a phone interview with IGN.

From mortgaging their house to complete the game to getting their own Animated Show, Studio MDHR and the Moldenhauer brothers have come a long way and we can’t wait to see how The Cuphead Show! turns out.
