Deadpool mania continues. While fans await the anticipated big screen sequel, news has surfaced that an animated series for the Marvel superhero is on the way.

According to Variety, FXX is working on the series, which will be created by Donald Glover and Stephen Glover.

The network has given the green light on a 10-episode first season, which is expected to debut in 2018.

Both Glovers will serve as Deadpool’s showrunners, executive producers and writers, while Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory are executive producers.

“How much more fun could this be? Deadpool, Donald and FX — the perfect fit for the Merc with the Mouth,” Loeb tells Variety. “We’re thrilled that our relationship with FX that started with ‘Legion’ continues with what is sure to be a groundbreaking show in adult animation.”

The Deadpool 2 movie is set to hit theaters June 1, 2018.
