Production

Development

In July 2019, it was announced that Netflix had green-lit the series for a run of at least ten episodes. The series will be animated; it will not be done as meticulously as the video game using traditional pen-and-paper methods, since that would take far too long to complete, but instead will feature hand-drawn characters and movement. Chad and Jared Moldenhauer from StudioMDHR will be executive producers along with CJ Kettler from King Features Syndicate. Dave Wasson and Cosmo Segurson will co-executive produce, while Clay Morrow and Adam Paloian will be supervising directors.[1]

As of June 25th 4 out of the 10 episode animatics leaked onto the website 4chan without permission from Studio MDHR or Netflix. It's unknown who stole these animatics or if any action will be taken.
