Netflix Orders Gods & Heroes from Powerhouse Animation


According to a recent announcement, Netflix has ordered 8 episodes of an original anime series titled Gods & Heroes from Powerhouse Animation. The studio was responsible for the successful Castlevania adaptation and the upcoming Seis Manos. Powerhouse Animation will helm the animation development and creation for Gods & Heroes, while Charley and Vlas Parlapanides (Immortals, Death Note) will serve as creators, writers and executive producers.

Gods & Heroes’ story revolves around a young man ostracized by his people, who eventually discovers that he is the illegitimate son of Zeus. In order to save both heaven and earth, the young man needs to go toe to toe with a goddess who wants him dead, as well as the monsters that she set loose upon him. The story may seem familiar to people who know the story of Hercules, though the studio has not clarified whether this is an adaptation or something else.

“In Gods & Heroes we wanted to tell a wholly original story set in the beloved world of Greek mythology. We are thankful for such an amazing cast and for such great creative partners at Netflix and Powerhouse Animation, who continue to push the envelope and expand the anime genre in a manner we had only dreamed of,” said Vlas and Charley Parlapanides.
