Netlfix is Working on a Bone Animated Series

Bone

It looks like Jeff Smith‘s critically hailed and best-selling Bone comic series is coming to television. Netflix has acquired the rights the award-winning series. It’ll be developed into an animated series and is part of the streaming platform’s focus on kids programming.

In 2016 it was announced that Mark Osborne with a script co-written with Adam Kline was adapting the series as an animated film for Warner Bros. The movie studio acquired the rights around 2008. That failed attempt opened the door for Netflix.

Bone was first published in 1991 by Smith who began creating the series when he was 10 in 1970. He also has said early versions of the characters were drawn by him when he was 5 years old. The series ran for 55 issues and ended its run in 2004. It was originally published by Smith’s Cartoon Books, then Image Comics, and finished its run with Cartoon Books. It’s earned 10 Eisner Awards and 11 Harvey Awards. It’s one of the trailblazing kids series and a lynchpin for Scholastic’s graphic novel imprint Graphix Books.

The series has sold over 8 million copies in North America and has been released in 30 countries. It has earned 40 national and international publishing awards.

The series follows the Bone cousins on adventures through their fantasy world filled with wonderful and terrifying creatures.
