Waiting for “Deadpool 2” just got a little easier, with a cartoon series of the superhero being developed. The TV series will be aimed at adults, which means the audience can expect the same adult humour that the character is famous for.

Donald Glover and his brother Stephen will be the showrunners for this new cartoon, Birth Movies Death reports. The two executive producers will also write the scripts for the episodes.

There will be 10 episodes in the first season of this TV series, and it will air on FXX. The exact release date has not been announced, but readers can expect it to air sometime next year.

This isn’t the first Marvel superhero to get the animation treatment. However, what is different about this one is that it is primarily aimed at grownups due to the graphic language the superhero uses. The other cartoon series from the studio haven’t been a runaway success compared to the huge blockbusters the movies have been. So, this new experiment will be interesting to watch.

The timing also appears to be a good marketing strategy. The first Ryan Reynolds’ film was a huge hit, and the cartoon series next year can help build the anticipation for the sequel, which will also be released in 2018.

The report notes that the animation series is a good opportunity for Marvel to introduce new characters. There is talk of comic book character Cable being a big part of the storyline in the sequel and Hugh Jackman reprising his role as Logan for a cameo appearance.

It is not clear if the “Deadpool” cartoon series will be a continuation of the story from the 2016 film, or if this will be an independent project. Some of the other Marvel TV shows that are based on characters in movies have no connection to their films, so this new show may also take the same route.
