Netflix has revealed that its upcoming animated series based on Cuphead, Studio MDHR's popular 2017 run-and-gun game, will be available to stream starting from 18th February 2022.

Called 'The Cuphead Show', the series will consist of 12 episodes in total, all at around 12 minutes each. The show has been directed by Adam Paloian and Clay Morrow, developed by Dave Wasson, and stars the following voice talent:

  • Tru Valentino (Cuphead)
  • Frank Todaro (Mugman)
  • Joe Hanna (Elder Kettle)
  • Luke Millington-Drake (Devil)
  • Grey Griffin (Ms. Chalice)
  • Wayne Brady (King Dice)

The show's first trailer has also arrived (check it out above) and we have a full synopsis of the show for you right here:

Based on the award-winning video game that smashed onto the scene with a gorgeous retro animation style, THE CUPHEAD SHOW! is a character-driven comedy series following the unique misadventures of loveable, impulsive scamp Cuphead and his cautious but easily swayed brother Mugman. As the two scour their surreal homeworld of the Inkwell Isles in search of fun and adventure, they always have each other’s back. Unless there’s only one cookie left, in which case it’s every cup for himself.

THE CUPHEAD SHOW! combines nostalgic delights, side-splitting gags, and a healthy dose of the heebie jeebies—especially when a ridiculously weird nemesis, The Devil himself, arrives on the scene to toy with our heroes. For King Features, C.J. Kettler will serve as the Executive Producer and Cuphead creators Chad and Jared Moldenhauer will serve as Executive Producers for Studio MDHR. The series will be produced by Netflix Animation and is executive produced by Emmy and Annie Award-winning producer, Dave Wasson (Mickey Mouse Shorts) and co-executive produced by Cosmo Segurson (Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling).
