Dead Cells Animated Series Set To Premiere In 2024

Initially exclusive to France before a global release, the series offers 10 episodes, each roughly seven minutes long.


Motion Twin, the developer behind the indie game Dead Cells, has announced the production of an animated series based on the game. The series, scheduled for release in 2024, will be created by the French studio Bobbypills, known for their work on Dead Cells' animated trailers.

The animated series will, according to a synopsis "take place on a cursed island that has been racked by a strange plague. After the island's foolish king develops a remedy that ends up turning the population into monstrous creatures, prophecies depicting a flame-headed hero who will kill the crazy King begin to appear. As it so happens, this beheaded hero is real, but saving a kingdom isn’t on his schedule and he just wants to be left alone. Well, guess who isn't going to be left alone."

Co-produced by Animation Digital Network, a French anime streaming service, the Dead Cells animated series will consist of ten episodes, each approximately seven minutes long. Initially, the series will be exclusively available in France before its global release.

Motion Twin assures fans that they remain committed to the original Dead Cells video game and promises to share further updates in due course. The game, available on multiple platforms, including PC, consoles, and mobile devices, has achieved considerable success with over 10 million sales.

In March, Dead Cells got an expansion that pays heavy homage to classic Castlevania.
