Netflix has announced it’s developing an original Greek Mythology-based anime series called Gods & Heroes.
The streaming giant has officially ordered eight episodes of the show, which tells the story of “a young man who, cast aside by his people, learns that he is the illegitimate son of Zeus. He alone can save both Heaven and Earth but to do so he must survive the vengeful wrath of a goddess who wants him dead and the monstrous forces of evil she aligns against him.”
The show will include the vocal talents of Jason O’Mara, Mamie Gummer, Derek Phillips, Chris Diamantopoulos, Jessica Henwick, Melina Kanakaredes, Claudia Christian and Elias Toufexis. Charley and Vlas Parlapanides, who worked on Immortals and Death Note, will serve as the show’s creators, writers and executive producers. Castlevania’s Powerhouse Animation will be the studio behind Gods & Heroes. A poster for the show can be seen below.
