In production for a few years, Netflix has finally confirmed The Cuphead Show premiere is set for February 2022, alongside the first full trailer for the animated show.
The Cuphead Show premiere is set for February 18th exclusively on Netflix. The company also launched an interactive website that counts down to the shows release – you can view it over on the Cuphead Countdown.
Here’s the first trailer:
Here’s a rundown on the show:
Based on the award-winning video game that smashed onto the scene with a gorgeous retro animation style, THE CUPHEAD SHOW! is a character-driven comedy series following the unique misadventures of loveable, impulsive scamp Cuphead and his cautious but easily swayed brother Mugman. As the two scour their surreal homeworld of the Inkwell Isles in search of fun and adventure, they always have each other’s back. Unless there’s only one cookie left, in which case it’s every cup for himself. THE CUPHEAD SHOW! combines nostalgic delights, side-splitting gags, and a healthy dose of the heebie jeebies—especially when a ridiculously weird nemesis, The Devil himself, arrives on the scene to toy with our heroes.
For King Features, C.J. Kettler will serve as the Executive Producer and Cuphead creators Chad and Jared Moldenhauer will serve as Executive Producers for Studio MDHR. The series will be produced by Netflix Animation and is executive produced by Emmy and Annie Award-winning producer, Dave Wasson (Mickey Mouse Shorts) and co-executive produced by Cosmo Segurson (Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling).
The big post-launch expansion DLC for the original Cuphead game, “The Delicious Last Course,” is set for a June 2022 release.
Cuphead is available for Windows PC, Mac, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One. In case you missed it, you can find our review for the game here (we can’t recommend it enough!!)
