MAGIC: THE GATHERING Series By Netflix And Russo Brothers Announced

This morning, Netflix announced the creation of a Magic: The Gathering series based on popular collectable card game (CCG). The kicker, Joe and Anthony Russo (Avengers: Endgame) are set as the executive producers on the upcoming show.

In the announcement, the Russo’s said, “We have been huge fans and players of Magic: The Gathering for as long as it has been around, so being able to help bring these stories to life through animation is a true passion project for us.”

Based on the 26-year old CCG, the series will focus on the ever-expanding stories of the Planeswalkers, the games heroes and villains, and their fight for control over the game’s Multiverse.

Spanning 26-years, the game has delved into other facets of storytelling, through books and comics. This is the first major news about a show being developed since Fox took a swing at the story in 2014, though the development has been a revolving door of production rumors.

Since it’s inception in 1993, Magic has gone on to develop multiple expansions and even birth numerous digital games, the latest being Magic: The Gathering Arena (available on PC).

With the latest “War of the Spark” expansion, Arena also debuted an animated trailer, perhaps giving an idea of what is to come.

Animation is currently being overseen by Octopie Studios, with Hasbro’s Allspark Studios and Wizards of the Coast assisting in the development. The show adds to a growing library of original animated series like Big Mouth, Disenchantment and anime series like Ultraman and Castlevania.

No official release date has been announced, yet. But given Netflix’s quick turnaround time for other series from announcement to premiere, we could see the show as early as the end of 2019.

What are your thoughts and wants from the upcoming Magic: The Gathering series?
