According to Marvel Entertainment, FXX is working on an animated Deadpool series from Donald Glover and his brother/writer Stephen Glover. The series has been given a straight-to-series order and will debut next year with a ten episode first season; Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory are also involved.

Loeb had the following to say about the series…

“How much more fun could this be? Deadpool, Donald and FX – the perfect fit for the Merc with the Mouth. We’re thrilled that our relationship with FX that started with ‘Legion’ continues with what is sure to be a groundbreaking show in adult animation.”

The show is still untitled, and it’s described as an “adult animated action-comedy” TV series. More details on the animated version of the Merc With a Mouth will be revealed later on. The show is being produced by Marvel Television in association with FX Productions and ABC Signature Studios for FXX.
