13. The Midnight Gospel
Created By: Pendleton Ward and Duncan Trussell
Release Date: Monday, April 20
Over the years, Netflix has carved out a space for itself in the adult animation circuit, with popular hits like BoJack Horseman, Big Mouth and Disenchantment. With BoJack Horseman leaving a gap in the watch lists of millions and Adventure Time fans missing their favorite show, it was only a matter of time until the best of both worlds arrived in the form of one intriguing new show. This April, the streaming giant launches The Midnight Gospel, a new animated comedy, and it’s one of the month’s new titles that you should be keeping an eye on.
While there’s not a lot of information available about the series, The Midnight Gospel centers on Clancy, who’s a spacecaster. Judging by the teaser trailer, spacecaster sounds like a podcaster from space. Clancy possesses a malfunctioning multiverse simulator, which prompts him to leave his extra-dimensional home of the Chromatic Ribbon in order to follow his interest in interviewing beings from other worlds. Clearly, Clancy goes on crazy adventures to learn new things.
The Midnight Gospel comes from creators Pendleton Ward, who created the long-running animated series Adventure Time, and Duncan Trussell, who hosts The Duncan Trussell Family Hour podcast. Unfortunately, there’s no word on casting or whose voices might show up as the beings from other worlds. But we’re all in for some exciting surprises when the eight episodes of the first season of The Midnight Gospel cleverly arrive for streaming on April 20.
