It’s looking like fans of Todd McFarlane’s Spawn have a lot to look forward to not only with production scheduled to begin for his long-anticipated live-action reboot in February of 2018 but also with the possibility of the character’s animated return to the small screen.
During his appearance at New York Comic Con this past weekend, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane revealed to ScreenGeek that plans are in motion for the character’s return to television:
“I’m going to get the [Spawn] movie out and then we still have the rights for TV and animation and we’ll just figure it out. I’ve also got to figure out how to get Keith David in my movie, too. Just for one line.”
For those not familiar, Todd McFarlane’s Spawn was an animated series that aired on HBO with actor Keith David voicing the titular hero. The critically acclaimed show ran from 1997 to 1999 all while garnering an Emmy for Outstanding Animation Program.
An animated series titled Spawn: The Animation was announced back in 2009 with David once again set to reprise his role as Spawn and even slated to feature Mark Hamill as the voice of Maximilian “Twitch” Williams however, the series has since then been on hiatus.

6 R-Rated Comic Book Movies Audiences Deserve
Logan and Deadpool have shown studios that R-Rated superhero movies can succeed. Sure, Watchmen and 300 kind of proved that same point in 2009, but now both Marvel and DC have said R-Rated movies are a possibility. Audiences are tired of so many comic book movies featuring similar plots, so opening more projects to the potential of being R-Rated makes it possible that different, mature stories can be told.
Some characters, like Superman and Spider-Man, should never receive the R-Rated treatment. If a character is defined by a sense of hope or optimism instead of a dark, gritty core that grounds all their actions, then a R-Rated movie likely won’t work.
