The cable network has ordered 10 episodes of the untitled animated series from Atlanta creator Donald Glover and his brother Stephen.

The Glover brothers will serve as showrunners, executive producers, and writers of series, which is expected to air sometime in 2018.

“Deadpool, Donald and FX — the perfect fit for the Merc with the Mouth!,” said Marvel TV chief Jeph Loeb in a statement. “We’re thrilled that our relationship with FX that started with Legion continues with what is sure to be a ground-breaking show in adult animation.”

FX original programming president Nick Grad adds, “Donald Glover is an incredibly gifted and versatile artist who’ll bring the untitled Marvel’s Deadpool series to life with the same intense, singular vision as his breakout hit Atlanta. With the success of Legion, we’re looking forward to again partnering with Marvel Television to create a series that is bold, striking and entirely original.”

Fans of the Marvel anti-hero will certainly be delighted, however, there’s no word on whether live-action Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds will lend his voice to the series.
