Cuphead animated series gets second season from Netflix

Netflix has confirmed that The Cuphead Show is officially returning for a second season. The animated series based on the video game by Studio MDHR was confirmed to return this summer via Twitter.

The announcement for The Cuphead Show’s second season came just shy of two weeks from the premiere of the first season on Netflix. Studio MDHR said there will be “More heartfelt hi-jinx and hilarity in Season 2 of The Cuphead Show.” The Cuphead Show was developed by Dave Wasson, better known for his work on the shows Time Squad and Star vs. The Forces of Evil.

Cuphead was released back in 2017 and was praised for its amazing use of old timey American animation for the game’s art style. The hand-drawn visuals are striking and there’s no other game that looks like it. It has a punishingly fair, run-and-gun gameplay where trial and error will be a key factor in determining your mastery of the game as well as survival.

In June of 2018, Studio MDHR announced that they were working on DLC for Cuphead, and planned to release it in 2019. That year came and went and unnfortunately, the global pandemic happened and they were forced to push it back. Fast forward to December of 2021, MDHR finally announced Cuphead’s Delicious Last Course (DLC, heh) set for released on June 30, 2022. They even went off to get some fabulous jazzy singers to present the DLC back at last year’s The Game Awards.

The Cuphead Show has been available for streaming on Netflix since February 18, 2022. Each episode runs for about 15 minutes or less which makes it the perfect show to sneak episodes of in between long stretches of gaming. Cuphead is currently available on The Microsoft Store and Xbox Store for Windows 10 PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
