Netflix



"Magic: The Gathering" is coming to television.

Netflix is teaming up with Joe and Anthony Russo ("Avengers: Endgame") to develop an animated series based on the popular trading card game.

Originally released in 1993, the game has been played by millions of players around the world and has spawned a video game, comic book series, and a best-selling novel.

The Russo brothers will serve as executive producers on the series, which will tell "an all new storyline and expand on the stories of the Planeswalkers, which are Magic’s unique magic-wielding heroes and villains as they contend with stakes larger than any one world can hold.”

The show will "cross the genres of suspenseful thriller, horror, and drama with deeply developed characters the likes of which are not often seen in animation.”

"Magic: The Gathering's" parent company Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro's Allspark Animation are also on board the project.

“We have been huge fans and players of Magic: The Gathering for as long as it has been around, so being able to help bring these stories to life through animation is a true passion project for us,” said the Russo brothers.
