The Oatmeal Working on “Exploding Kittens” Series at Netflix!
We are delighted to share the news that The Oatmeal, popular web comic creator, has a new project. Exploding Kittens the game is getting an animated tv series at Netflix!
Mike Judge (“Beavis and Butthead,” “King of the Hill“) and Greg Daniels (“The Office” USA version) created the series.
“Netflix is the only service that could bring Exploding Kittens to life in both a series and a game,” said Matthew Inman, Exploding Kittens Chief Creative Officer and Creator of The Oatmeal. “We actually launched Exploding Kittens on Kickstarter as a weekend project, but our community has been the heart and soul of the company over the past six years. The new series and game will give our fans new ways to connect and interact with the franchise.”
Tom Ellis (“Lucifer“), Abraham Lin, Lucy Liu (“Elementary“), Ally Maki, Mark Proksch (“What We Do In The Shadows“), and Sasheer Zamata (“Saturday Night Live“) are confirmed to star.
“The co-development of a game and animated series breaks new ground for Netflix,” said Mike Moon, Netflix Head of Adult Animation. “And we couldn’t think of a better game to build a universe around than Exploding Kittens, one of the most inventive, iconic and original games of this century! Netflix is the perfect place to explore this growing franchise and we are so fortunate to be working with this incredible team!”
“Our goal is to offer our members great entertainment they’ll love in whatever format they may enjoy – whether it be a game or an animated series,” said Leanne Loombe, Head of External Games, Netflix. “As we expand our mobile games catalog, we’re excited to partner with the Exploding Kittens digital team to bring this enjoyable game to all age groups, including a few exciting updates exclusively for our members.”
The game will be available to play on Netflix next month, while “Exploding Kittens” the series will nit in 2023.
