Indie darling Cuphead makes for a great TV show, and Netflix agrees--that's why it's ordered an original series.

Cuphead is pretty much a playable cartoon turned into a hard-as-nails platformer, featuring hand-drawn animations straight out of the 1930's. Now the beloved game is getting a fully-fledged animated show over at Netflix, complete with that distinct visual style of the golden age of cartoons.

"The game that has won the hearts and minds of fans with its gorgeous retro hand-animated style, crazy boss-brawls, and challenging gameplay will come to life on television for the first time ever in The Cuphead Show!. The new series will expand on the characters and world of Cuphead, with an animation style inspired by the classic Fleischer cartoons from the 1930s," reads the official Netflix press announcement.

This announcement comes on the heels of Cuphead passing 4 million copies sold, making it a bonafide hit for Studio MDHR.

There's no word when the show will be out, but it could be sometime in 2020 or thereabouts to coincide with the game's new The Delicious Last Course expansion.

Studio MDHR's Moldenhauer brothers will sit as executive producers on the show, and animation veterans like Dave Wasson and Cosmo Segurson will also produce the project.
