Hold on to your haunts: A new Ghostbusters animated series is coming to splash more paranormal laughs (and ectoplasm) across screens.
Announced during Geeked Week‘s Animation day, Netflix is partnership with prodco Ghost Corps for the toon, which will be executive produced by Ghostbusters: Afterlife co-writers Jason Reitman (director of Oscar-nominated movies Juno and Up in the Air) — son of original Ghostbusters movies director Ivan Reitman — and Gil Kenan (director of Oscar-nominated animated feature Monster House).
The new Ghostbusters project is just the latest time that the franchise has been adapted to animated series, following The Real Ghostbusters from DIC (1986-1991) and its follow-up Extreme Ghostbusters from Adelaide Prod. and Columbia TriStar Television (1997).
The original 1984 supernatural comedy movie was created by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which Jason Reitman also directed, opened in theaters in November of last year and achieved a $204.6 million worldwide box office despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
