Netflix announces the new anime ‘DeadEndia’: All Updates


Netflix announces a new 2D animated series ‘DeadEndia’ which will premiere globally on Netflix in 2021. The new anime was based on the graphic novels from award-winning creator Hamish Steele. The series will be produced at the Blink Industries studio in London

The graphic novels have been capturing the growing pains of early adulthood of characters with a wide variety of identities and experiences including Barney, a transgender teen, and neurodiverse Norma.

DeadEndia: Plot

The anime was based on Hamish’s horror-comedy graphic novels of the same name and web short Dead End. It follows the adventures of Barney, Norma and magical-talking-dog Pugsley. They balance their summer jobs at the local theme park haunted house while battling the totally real supernatural forces that dwell within it. Together with their guide to the underworld multiplane, a sardonic thousand-year-old demon named Courtney, they’ll face zombie mascots, demonic game show hosts, sleep-sucking witches and the scariest thing of all: their first crushes!

DeadEndia: Cast

The series will star Zach Barack as Barney, Kody Kavitha as Norma , Emily Osment as Courtney, Alex Brightman as Pugsley, Clinton Leupp a.k.a. Miss Coco Peru as Pauline Phoenix, Kenny Tran as Logs and Kathreen Khavari as Badyah.

“DeadEndia is about terrifying demons, vengeful ghosts, and mysterious magic. It is also about coming of age in a world that wasn’t made for you. It’s a drama about found family, identity, and making mistakes. And of course, it’s a laugh out loud comedy! I’ve always dreamed of making the show I needed as a lonely, horror-obsessed closeted gay kid, and thanks to Netflix and our ridiculously talented, diverse, and representative writers room and crew, we have shot way past my dreams and into wildest fantasy territory!”
