With Love, Death & Robots, Big Mouth, and Bojack Horseman, Netflix has shown their affinity for offbeat, mature animated shows. Well, they don’t get more offbeat than Pendleton Ward’s Adventure Time, but it’s clear his Cartoon Network series was the tip of the psychedelic iceberg, and he was just waiting to cut loose at Netflix with The Midnight Gospel.
A surreal, trippy visual feast, The Midnight Gospel is Pendleton Ward’s long-awaited followup to Adventure Time. Once again teaming up with comedian/podcaster Duncan Trussell , and the folks at Titmouse studio (known for their work on Big Mouth) Ward takes on a weird, strangely introspective trip across time and space. Here’s the synopsis:
“The Midnight Gospel is the story of Clancy, a spacecaster with a malfunctioning multiverse simulator who leaves the comfort of his extra-dimensional home on the Chromatic Ribbon to interview beings living in other worlds.”
The Midnight Gospel hits Netflix beginning April 20th.
