Netflix, in collaboration with London’s Blink Industries Studio, has announced a 2D horror-comedy animated series ‘DeadEndia’. It will come out in 2021.
The official description reads:
“The series follows the adventures of Barney, Norma and magical-talking-dog Pugsley, as they balance their summer jobs at the local theme park haunted house while battling the totally real supernatural forces that dwell within it. Together with their guide to the underworld multiplane, a sardonic thousand-year-old demon named Courtney, they’ll face zombie mascots, demonic game show hosts, sleep-sucking witches and the scariest thing of all: their first crushes!”
DeadEndia is based on award-winning creator Hamish Steele’s graphic novels with the same name. It will feature Zach Barack, Kody Kavitha, Emily Osment, Alex Brightman, Clinton Leupp, Kenny Tran and Kathreen Khavari as the voice actors.
Steele said in a statement:
“DeadEndia is about terrifying demons, vengeful ghosts and mysterious magic. It is also about coming of age in a world that wasn’t made for you. It’s a drama about found family, identity and making mistakes. And of course, it’s a laugh out loud comedy! I’ve always dreamed of making the show I needed as a lonely, horror-obsessed closeted gay kid and thanks to Netflix and our ridiculously talented, diverse and representative writers room and crew, we have shot way past my dreams and into wildest fantasy territory!”
DeadEndia is the latest in a string of animated series announced by Netflix. These include Over the Moon, F is for Family season 4, Sharkdog and an Angry Birds series.
