The american cable network FXX (Legion/Archer/Atlanta) has placed an order of ten-episodes for a Deadpool animated series. The first season is set to debut sometime in 2018. Donald Glover (30 Rock/Atlanta/Community) and Stephen Glover (Atlanta) will spearhead the new series as showrunners, executive producers, and writers.
No word yet on any voice actors for the lead role. There is also no word as to any of the characters that may appear along with him. The series would most likely stand separate from the X-Men and Deadpool films by Fox. The nature of Deadpool and the fact that FXX is owned by Fox may leave room for references back to the Ryan Reynolds’ films.
