FX’s Deadpool Animated Series Cancelled


It would seem that the widespread excitement generated by recent news that FX is prepping a new Deadpool animated series written by Donald and Stephen Glover is all for naught, as FX has recently pulled out of the project, citing “creative differences” as the reason. The planned animated series was originally meant to be overseen by Glover, who is fresh off production duties in FX’s acclaimed Atlanta.

“Due to creative differences, FX, Donald Glover, Stephen Glover and Marvel Television have agreed to part ways on Marvel’s Deadpool animated series,” FX said in a statement to Deadline.com. “FX will no longer be involved with the project. FX and Marvel have an ongoing relationship through our partnership on Legion, which will continue.”

The series showed all signs of being a sure go, as FX has already ordered 10 episodes and it would have no doubt benefited from any buzz that will be generated by the upcoming Deadpool movie sequel.

There is no word on whether Marvel TV and ABC Studios will pick up the ball or whether the Glover brothers will still be involved. The situation is further complicated by the pending Disney/Fox deal, which is yet to be completed, and no doubt will affect decisions regarding the project for obvious reasons.
