Scott Pilgrim animated series in the works

Bryan Lee O’Malley will write the series

Published: 09th January 2022

It has been announced that an animated series based on the graphic novel series Scott Pilgrim is being adapted into an animation series. The show is currently in development at Netflix and UCP, the division of Universal Studio Group that was behind the streamer's successful title, The Umbrella Academy.

The graphic novel series has already been adapted by Edgar Wright into Scott Pilgrim Vs the World, which continues to enjoy a cult following despite performing poorly at the box office upon its release in 2010. The film featured Michael Cera in the titular role and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kieran Culkin, Chris Evans, and Anna Kendrick in supporting roles. Wright will be credited as the executive producer in the show. 

Bryan Lee O’Malley, the artist and creator of the graphic novels, will write and serve as an executive producer on the series along with BenDavid Grabinski, known for his work on Nickelodeon's Are You Afraid of the Dark? The two will be the showrunners. 

The streamer is yet to set a premiere date.
