A Deadpool animated series based on the Marvel character is coming to FXX. Atlanta creator Donald Glover and Stephen Glover will be producing this Deadpool animated series as showrunners. Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory are also serving as executive producers, and FXX has ordered a 10-episode first season to debut in 2018.
Nick Grad, co-president of original programming at FX Networks and FX Productions, had this to say about the show:
“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. 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.”
Atlanta Season 2 was delayed due to the Han Solo Star Wars movie, which is currently filming, but with the show is scheduled to return in early 2018 to FX and now Deadpool.
