Magic: The Gathering Animated Series Coming to Netflix


Wizards of the Coast has announced a partnership with both Netflix and the Russo brothers (Avengers: Endgame) to create a Magic: The Gathering animated series.

This series will expand on the stories of the Planeswalkers, Magic’s unique magic-wielding heroes and villains. The overarching plot will look at how they will contend with stakes that are larger than any one world can hold.

According to the Russo brothers:

“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.”

Isaac Krauss, CEO of Octopie, added:

“Working with Joe and Anthony, Wizards of the Coast, and Netflix on such a universally cherished brand is a real highlight for our studio. Our goal is to not only tell a compelling story leveraging Magic: The Gathering’s incredible body of work, but to also push the medium and perception of storytelling through animation. This series will cross the genres of suspenseful thriller, horror, and drama with deeply developed characters the likes of which are not often seen in animation.”

In addition to Joe and Anthony Russo, creative talent from, Batman: The Animated Series, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Agent Carter, Firefly, Ultimate Spider-Man, and The Lego Movies will also work on the series. Animation will be handled by Bardel Entertainment (Rick and Morty, Teen Titans Go!).
