A Deadpool Animated Series from Donald Glover and Marvel Is Coming to FXX

You would think that given the success of Deadpool and likely Deadpool 2 at the box office that the movie series (more than likely eventually franchise) that a TV series would be inevitable.  However, given the nature of the graphic language and subject matter you could pretty much rule out any network television channel.   If you strip those channels you are left with cable.  But would an HBO, Showtime, Starz, AMC, or any others pick up this series?  Turns out we won’t have to wait to find an answer.  According to TV Guide

In addition to Season 2 of Atlanta and playing Lando Calrissian in the Han Solo Star Wars movie, Glover will also be executive-producing a Marvel’s Deadpool animated series for FXX, the network announced Wednesday. Glover will write and executive-produce with his brother Stephen, who also writes for Atlanta. The adult animated series joins Legion in FX Networks’ suite of Marvel shows. Deadpool, of course, is a cultishly adored comics character who blew up last year thanks to the hit movie starring Ryan Reynolds.

“Donald Glover is an incredibly gifted and versatile artist who’ll bring the untitled Marvel’s Deadpool series to life with the same intense, singular vision as his breakout hit Atlanta,” FX programming president Nick Grad said in a statement. “With the success of Legion, we’re looking forward to again partnering with Marvel Television to create a series that is bold, striking and entirely original.”

This should be interesting. We’ll keep you posted.
