Netflix has announced an “overall deal” with Dark Horse comics, giving the streaming service “the first look at all Dark Horse titles for both film and TV projects.” Previous Dark Horse comics to be adapted for TV and film include Hellboy, The Mask and Sin City, and the comic publisher has worked directly with Netflix on Polar and The Umbrella Academy.
Speaking about the new collaboration, Cindy Holland, VP of Original Content for Netflix, explained that “following the success of The Umbrella Academy, we’re excited to extend our relationship with Dark Horse comics. The Netflix teams are already working in deep collaboration with Dark Horse to identify projects beyond the world of traditional superheroes — branching into horror, fantasy and family entertainment — that we think our members will love.”
Keep an eye out for more original content from Netflix and Dark Horse in the future. Currently, the only confirmed project is the second season of The Umbrella Academy.

Very happy to announce that Netflix has closed an overall deal with @DarkHorseComics! That means Netflix will have the first look at all Dark Horse titles for both film and TV projects and I’m really trying to keep my cool about it but YES YES YES
