Update on Netflix’s GHOSTBUSTERS Animated Series Project — GeekTyrant

A couple of years ago it was announced that Netflix was developing a new Ghostbusters animated series. That project is being developed by Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan who brought us Ghostbusters: Afterlife and Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire. They will be executive producing the series through their Ghost Corps, Inc. production company.

There’s been radio silence on this series, but it is still moving forward. Kenan offered an update on the project during an interview with ScreenRant, saying:

“I just watched an entire art presentation for the show. I’ve seen the sets and the environments, and I just saw my first glimpse at a world of supernatural characters as realized by our brilliant creative team. All I can say is the work is being done as we speak. It’s in what we call full development. Scripts are being written, art is being created, and it’s a great time to be a Ghostbuster.”

While the project is moving forward, it sounds like there’s still a long way to go if the creative team is still only in the development stage. I loved the original cartoon series, The Real Ghostbusters, and I hope that whatever this new one comes out to be, it has the same spirit and zany energy of that original series.

The Real Ghostbusters aired from 1986 – 1991 and the cast members include Dave Coulier as Peter Venkman; Frank Weller as Ray Stantz, Slimer, and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man; and Arsenio Hall as Winston Zeddemore. A limited series, Extreme Ghostbusters, aired in 1997 and starred a college-aged group of Ghostbusters led by OG Ghostbuster Egon Spengler.
