CW Seed, The CW’s free, ad-supported digital network, announced that its new animated series, Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons, debuted yesterday January 6, 2020 on the streaming service.
The announcement of Warner Bros. Animation’s twelve-episode original series was made on CWSeed’s Instagram page, complete with a one and half-minute ‘first look’ trailer!
Unlike previous CWSeed animated series, Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons will apparently not be in-continuity with CW’s Arrowverse shows.
The series’ official synopsis reads as follows:
DEATHSTROKE: KNIGHTS & DRAGONS follows in the tradition of CW Seed’s animated series VIXEN and FREEDOM FIGHTERS: THE RAY. Ten years ago, Slade Wilson—aka the super-assassin called Deathstroke—made a tragic mistake and his wife and son paid a terrible price. Now, a decade later, Wilson’s family is threatened once again by the murderous Jackal and the terrorists of H.IV.E. Can Deathstroke atone for the sins of the past—or will his family pay the ultimate price?
Written by J.M. DeMatteis (CW Seed’s “Constantine: City of Demons”) and directed by Sung Jin Ahn (“Niko and the Sword of Light”), DEATHSTROKE: KNIGHTS & DRAGONS is an animated DC series from Blue Ribbon Content and executive produced by Sam Register (“DC Super Hero Girls,” “Mike Tyson Mysteries”), Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash”) and Sarah Schechter (“Supergirl,” “Blindspot”).
The series stars Emmy Award winner, Michael Chiklis (“The Shield,” “Gotham”) as the voice of Slade/Deathstroke. He is joined by Sasha Alexander (“Dawson’s Creek,” “Rizzoli & Isles”) as Addie, Chris Jai Alex (“Thundercats Roar”) as Jackal, Faye Mata (“Lego Friends: Girls On A Mission”) as Rose, Griffin Puatu as Jericho, Asher Bishop as Young Joseph, Colin Salmon as Wintergreen, Delbert Hunt as Tiger, Panta Mosleh as Lady Shiva, Imari Williams as President/Hive Pilot, Minae Noji as Secretary of State, Noshir Dalal as Kapoor and Castulo Guerra as General Suarez.
