Entergalactic is coming to Netflix in 2022. At Netflix Geeked Week, the streamer unveiled the full cast list and dropped a teaser. We’re so excited to share these juicy deets and so much more with you!
Entergalactic was first announced in July 2019 when Netflix revealed that Black-ish creator Kenya Barris and popular rapper Scott Mescudi (Kid Cudi) were teaming up to create an adult animated series based on Mescudi’s upcoming album of the same name.
It was reported that Mescudi would be writing, starring, and executive producing the series. In addition, Ian Edelman also signed on to write and executive produce. Edelman had previously worked with Mescudi on HBO’s How To Make It In America. Lastly, it was announced that Barris would be executive producing through his Khalabo Ink Society production company.
It was pretty much radio silence after the series announcement until September 2021, when Mescudi posted a tweet thanking the cast and crew of Entergalactic and promising fans that they’ll love it when it comes out. He also announced that the upcoming Netflix original and the album would be coming in 2022. The latest update was in April 2022, when Mescudi tweeted that more news about the show would be announced in June. It looks like that news was just announced at Netflix Geeked Week!
