More beautifully bizarre and hilariously morbid animation is coming to Adult Swim, as the network announces all-new original series JJ Villard’s Fairy Tales is joining the slate. Also on deck are more visits to the surreal stop-motion series The Shivering Truth and the neon world of Lazor Wulf, as well as the long-awaited return of Mouse Fitzgerald in 12 Oz. Mouse. The new series and seasons are set to premiere in 2020.
JJ Villard’s Fairy Tales is a new, twisted, fun take on classic Brothers Grimm fairy tales like Cinderella and Snow White. The charm and cuteness of the original stories remain, but now they’ve been updated and packaged into a ball of raw, visceral, gross weirdness. The quarter-hour series is created and executive produced by JJ Villard (King Star King).
Critically hailed in its first season, The Shivering Truth is a delicately crafted, darkly surreal anthology comedy in stunning stop-motion. The quarter-hour series is created and written by Vernon Chatman, directed by Chatman and Cat Solen, and executive produced by PFFR (Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter, Xavier: Renegade Angel) with Solen. The animation studio is ShadowMachine. (Watch season 1 online.)
Season two of Lazor Wulf will reunite fans with Stupid Horse, Lazor, Cannon and Blazor — but let’s not forget God and Wallace to round out the city of Strongburg’s finest. The quarter-hour series is created by Henry Bonsu and executive produced by Bonsu, Daniel Weidenfeld (China, IL), Carl Jones (The Boondocks) and Vince Staples. The animation studio is Six Point Harness. (Watch season 1 online.)
12 Oz. Mouse first aired on the network in 2005 and returns with season three to follow a new journey for Mouse Fitzgerald and his trusty sidekick, Skillet. The quarter-hour series features new cast members joining the original cast along with writer and creator, Matt Maiellaro (Aqua Teen Hunger Force). (Watch seasons 1 and 2 online.)
