Megamind is the most intelligent supervillain the world has known but the least successful. Continuously antagonizing his long-time superhero counterpart, Metro Man the hero of Metro City, is what gives purpose to Megamind's life. Megamind was surprised when one day, he successfully defeated Metro Man. After successfully fulfilling his lifelong dream, Megamind was depressed because his purpose as a supervillain is officially done. Megamind’s desperation to antagonize a new superhero grew and it caused him to create a superhero by himself, which ironically, also like to be a bad guy than a hero. After this event, Megamind was forced to be the hero rather than the villain.

The 2010 Dreamworks film Megamind will continue its journey in the streaming service Peacock, which just announced a full series to follow up the animated film. The sequel’s title was revealed Megamind’s Guide To Defending Your City that will be starring Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Jonah Hill, David Cross, and Brad Pitt. The series will pick up where the film left off, from a supervillain learning how to be a superhero, documenting everything, and creating a ‘guide for other superheroes,’ and essentially making him the world’s first-ever superhero social media influencer.

Megamind’s Guide To Defending Your City will be produced by Eric Fogel, Alan Schoolcraft, and Brent Simons, who wrote the script for the original movie. JD Ryznar will sit as co-producer and story editor.

Megamind is not the only Dreamworks project Peacock will revive as they also announced Abominable and The Invisible City TV series to be also in development. While waiting for the release of Megamind and Abominable sequel, you can stream Peacock's animated series, Dragons: The Nine Realms and Dragons Rescue Riders: Heroes of the Sky which are both spinoff series from the How To Train Your Dragon Trilogy. The streaming service also has Madagascar: A Little Wild, a prequel to the Madagascar series.
