Netflix Has Ordered Eight Episodes of Gods & Heroes, an Original Anime Series

Netflix has ordered eight episodes of Gods & Heroes, an original anime series set in the world of Greek mythology. The series tells the story of a young man who, cast aside by his people, learns that he is the illegitimate son of Zeus. He alone can save both Heaven and Earth, but to do so, he must survive the vengeful wrath of a goddess who wants him dead and the monstrous forces of evil she aligns against him.

The actors coming to the series are:

Jason O’Mara (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Mamie Gummer (True Detective), Derek Phillips (Friday Night Lights), Chris Diamantopoulos (Silicon Valley), Jessica Henwick (Luke Cage), Melina Kanakaredes (The Resident), Claudia Christian (Babylon 5), and Elias Toufexis (The Expanse).

Gods & Heroes is created by Charley and Vlas Parlapanides (Immortals, Death Note), who will serve as creators, writers and executive producers. Powerhouse Animation, the studio behind two Netflix series, Castlevania and the upcoming Seis Manos, are spear heading the development of animation and creation for Gods & Heroes.

“In Gods & Heroes we wanted to tell a wholly original story set in the beloved world of Greek mythology. We are thankful for such an amazing cast and for such great creative partners at Netflix and Powerhouse Animation, who continue to push the envelope and expand the anime genre in a manner we had only dreamed of,” – Vlas and Charley Parlapanides.

“The traditions of global mythology and folklore are fertile ground for anime projects and we are excited to explore the epic settings and characters of Greek mythology in our new series, Gods & Heroes,” said John Derderian, Director of Anime for Netflix. “Charley and Vlas have an outstanding track record of telling gripping stories set in fantastical worlds and we are thrilled to bring their unique vision for the Gods of Mount Olympus to Netflix members around the world.”

Gods & Heroes adds to Netflix’s growing slate of original anime titles, which includes Castlevania, Devilman Crybaby, Godzilla: The Planet Eater, Baki, Violet Evergarden, B: The Beginning, Aggretsuko, and The Seven Deadly Sins. Netflix continues to invest in global anime programming, with upcoming titles including Pacific Rim, Altered Carbon, Yasuke, Ghost in the Shell, and Trese currently in development.
