Scott Pilgrim Vs Netflix: Netflix Developing A Scott Pilgrim Anime Series

If the folks at Netflix and Universal Cable Productions have anything to say, it seems like Scott Pilgrim and Sex Bob-omb are practicing for a comeback tour. Scott Pilgrim, the hit graphic novel series that was adapted into the 2010 Edgar Wright cult classic, is once again returning to screens. This time, the series will be adapted into an anime series. 

Netflix and UCP, the division of Universal Studio Group behind recent shows like The Umbrella Academy and Chucky, are developing the brand-new adaptation, which does not yet have a series order.

Bryan Lee O’Malley, the creator of Scott Pilgrim, will write and executive produce the series with BenDavid Grabinski. Grabinski is best known as the showrunner behind the revival of Are You Afraid of the Dark? at Nickelodeon. The two will show run the series should it happen. Joining them will be anime production house Science SARU  to provide the animation work. The company’s Eunyoung Choi will serve as producer and Abel Gongora as director on the series. 

There is no word yet on when this series will happen but we will keep you updated when we know more.
