FXX Ordered A Deadpool Cartoon and ALL OF MY DREAMS ARE COMING TRUE

So not only are we getting a Deadpool sequel in 2018, we are also getting an animated Merc with the Mouth in 2018. FXX has ordered 10 episodes and OH MAH GAH KIDS.

THAT IS CORRECT. The network that now brings you the filthy animated series Archer will bring you the at least equally filthy Deadpool cartoon. This is great news for matching the flick’s humor and tone within the series. Even better news?

Donald Glover and his brother Stephen (both involved with the FX series Atlanta, obvs) are showrunners, executive producers, and writers for the series.

What’s that? Did you head just explode from so many awesome things smashing against one another like a dog on a leg? Are you falling to your knees to praise the pouches and lift your voice up to the skies in celebration of True Excellence? ARE YOU NOT JIZZING IN YOUR PANTS??

Because I am doing all of the above and I needed this. I needed this win. I needed more Deadpool in my life. It just isn’t enough to have him on my living room wall, on my keychain twice, three four on my desk, one by the television, three on the shelf, pillow cases on my bed, a mask in my closet, comic books by my chair, the movie on every television, and INSIDE OF MY HEART ON THE DAILY. I need this cartoon and I need it to fucking kill it. Literally.

It should be easy to make it wondrous with the creative Glover brothers in charge and the places they can go with our favorite psycho. He could meet unicorns and teach them to kill for money. He could kill dead Presidents. He could have a fashion montage set to music that sounds vaguely familiar but is ultimately a ripoff of a popular song. He could knit a blanket. THE SKY IS THE LIMIT.
