The animation house Bobbypills and animated streaming service ADN have teamed up with Evil Empire and Motion Twin to release an animated series for Dead Cells coming in 2024.
The new show brings fans to 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 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.
