Netflix has continued to showcase its imaginative framework for mature audiences over the years, introducing audiences to BoJack Horseman and last year’s highly-acclaimed animated series, Love, Death & Robots. The streaming giant’s latest animated offering for adults is titled The Midnight Gospel and brings some familiar names on board for a wildly cosmic trip. Dreamed up by Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward alongside comedian Duncan Trussell and animated by Titmouse, the new series promises a psychedelic visual trip that’s fittingly set to release on April 20, 2020.
Contrasting Adventure Time, which was geared towards a more child-friendly audience, The Midnight Gospel takes things up a notch, unleashing Ward’s surreal technicolor world in a manner that’s clearly aimed at a more mature viewership. The plot specifically follows Clancy, “ a spacecaster with a malfunctioning multiverse simulator who leaves the comfort of his extra-dimensional home on the Chromatic Ribbon to interview beings living in other worlds.”
