Netflix have released a brand new teaser for their upcoming animated series, Exploding Kittens.

The series follows the conflict between heaven and hell as God and the devil are sent to Earth, reincarnated in the bodies of house cats. Tom Ellis (Lucifer) will star as God Cat. Other cast members include Abraham Lim (The Boys) , Lucy Liu (Elementary), Ally Maki (Toy Story 4), Mark Proksch (The Office) and Sasheer Zamata (Woke).

Exploding Kittens is inspired by the card game, where players have to avoid drawing the exploding kitten card. The game was first launched on Kickstarter, where it raised $8.7m in 30 days. It has sold over 11 million copies and is still the most-backed project in Kickstarter’s history.

This is the first time that Netflix have developed a TV series and a mobile game at the same time. The game was launched earlier this year and follows the same rules as the Exploding Kittens card game. Two exclusive cards are available for players and future cards will be themed around the TV series.

Matthew Inman, Exploding Kittens Chief Creative Officer and creator of The Oatmeal said: “Netflix is the only service that could bring Exploding Kittens to life in both a series and a game.”

“We actually launched Exploding Kittens on Kickstarter as a weekend project, but our community has been the heart and soul of the company over the past six years. The new series and game will give our fans new ways to connect and interact with the franchise.”

Bandera Entertainment’s Mike Judge and Greg Daniels’ will produce the show, along with Shane Kosakowski, Matthew Inman, Dustin Davis, Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping and Elan Lee.

Exploding Kittens was set to launch on Netflix this year, however no premiere date has been announced.
