The Cuphead Show premiered on Netflix just a few weeks ago, but fans won’t have to wait much longer for a second sip, as the streaming service has revealed that Season 2 will be out this summer!
Based on the extremely popular run-and-gun game from Studio MDHR, the show honours Cuphead by capturing the goofy, skittish essence of the games. There are some fan-favourite bosses who make an appearance, too, as Cuphead and Mugman get tangled up in various antics.
The initial run of 12 episodes, which debuted on 18th February and are largely self-contained, has been getting some fairly decent reviews, with particular praise being lauded towards its score and animation. Which, again, matches the show to a tea (we’re not sorry about that one, readers).
While taking elements of the early 20th century Fleischer-era animation style that the game adopted so beautifully, the show successfully (in our opinion) blends that with the manic modern approach of more recent animated classics — imagine the lovechild of Betty Boop and SpongeBob and you’re not far off the mark.
We don’t have any details about the upcoming new episodes, including how many are on the way. However, we do know that 36 episodes have been commissioned already.
