Since the release of Studio MDHR’s Cuphead back in 2018, the title has swelled in popularity to go to the lengths of receiving its own Netflix animated series. The video streaming platform shared the news last year in July. Netflix told that the new show starring the titular Cuphead alongside his accompanying Mugman will also include the game’s creators to be Executive Producers, Chad Moldenhauer & Jared Moldenhauer.

Following the first break of the story, there has yet to be a proper follow-up on the show’s current stance. Especially with the ongoing crisis that has affected the world, it is understandable to be afraid of what might happen to the show since it has yet to even receive an introductory trailer. But despite what we worried fans might conjure up, the series looks to be on a good path for release.

According to Catsuka, an animation-focused outlet, the website has unearthed the first tangible traces for the show. Scanning over the Annecy Festival Online’s event roster, the Cuphead series is found with an image of what to expect for the approaching show. Even more, there is also a brief synapse of what the new show is expected to be.

The video game that smashed onto the scene with a gorgeous retro animation style, crazy boss-brawls and nearly impossible gameplay now comes to life in “The Cuphead Show!”. This character driven comedy follows the unique misadventures of the impulsive Cuphead and his cautious but easily-swayed brother, Mugman.

Additional details spared also includes that David Wasson will be helmed as the Director for the project alongside Cosmo Segurson to co-direct the series. Wasson is well known for his work directing Star vs. The Forces of Evil on Disney XD and a handful of Mickey Mouse shorts for the same network. Segurson on the other hand stands to be prolific for his storyboard work on Spongebob Sqaurepants, Camp Lazlo, and the most recent Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling.

The listing for the Netflix series also discloses that there will be 11 episodes in total for the first season alongside sharing that United States, Canada, and Ireland will be the supported regions for the show when the series launches later on. However, there is no word on when we could expect to see the show arrive for Netflix subscribers.

With that, this does satisfy plenty anticipating to uncover what is going on behind the scenes for The Cuphead Show. Since the series is listed for the Annecy Festival Online which will be hosted in mid June, perhaps we will get a full glimpse at the show with a release date to grab anticipation for the show’s arrival.
