FXX have ordered a new adult animated Deadpool series.
The network and Marvel Television have jointly announced the new venture, an action-comedy comic book adaption, which will see Donald Glover and his brother Stephen act as writers, executive producers and showrunners.
Ten episodes have been ordered for the first season.
Marvel’s Jeph Loeb, also an executive producer, said about the series;
“How much more fun could this be? Deadpool, Donald and FX – the perfect fit for the Merc with the Mouth! 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.”
The new series is expected to debut sometime in 2018.
