Wizards of the Coast's popular tabletop card game Magic: The Gathering is getting an animated series on Netflix. When the MTG series was first reported in June 2019, it was announced that the Avengers: Endgame directors, the Russo brothers, were originally attached to oversee the production of the highly-anticipated project. However, they departed the project in August 2020 due to creative difficulties in determining how to best adapt the popular trading card game into an animated series.
It was also reported that animation studio Octopie would oversee production, with Todd Makurath, Eric Calderon, and Dave Newberg serving as producers, and Mike Larocca and Isaac Krauss serving as executive producers. Bardel Entertainment would be in charge of the show's animation, and the main character is confirmed to be Gideon Jura, who will be voiced by Superman Returns actor Brandon Routh.
Now, fans are wondering if the MTG animated series will arrive on Netflix soon. Check out the latest information below:
Is Magic: The Gathering Netfix series coming in August 2022?
No, Netflix's Magic: The Gathering Netflix series is not scheduled to release in August 2022. We double-checked the list of movies and TV shows coming to Netflix in August 2022, and the upcoming MTG animated series is not included.
When is Netflix's MTG animated series coming out?
Netflix's Magic: The Gathering animated series is expected to release in late 2022, according to the August 24, 2021 announcement by Netflix and Wizards of the Coast.
Unfortunately, Netflix didn't share any updates about the upcoming Magic: The Gathering series during the Geeked Week 2022 virtual event (June 6 to 10), which is concerning to fans who are expecting it to release this year.
MTG was featured at Geeked Week before, but it was used to plug the streamer's own series instead of standing on its merits. During Geeked Week 2021, Netflix and Hasbro revealed that Stranger Things would be crossing over into MTG with its since-released limited-edition Secret Lair product.
So, there's a chance that its release date might be delayed to early 2023 or later.
