Streamer HBO Max has given a series order to “Adventure Time: Fionna & Cake” (working title), a new half-hour young adult animated series starring the fearless sword-wielding adventurer, “Fionna,” and her magical best friend and talking cat, “Cake.” Produced by Cartoon Network Studios, the 10-episode series will explore their relationship and the mysterious land of Ooo. Adam Muto (“Adventure Time,” “Adventure Time: Distant Lands” specials) will serve as showrunner and executive producer.
The logline: Fionna and Cake – with the help of the former Ice King, Simon Petrikov – embark on a multiverse-hopping adventure and journey of self-discovery. All the while a powerful new antagonist determined to track them down and erase them from existence, lurks in the shadows.
“Adventure Time truly broke the mold and earned legions of passionate fans in the process,” said Billy Wee, SVP, Comedy and Original Animation, HBO Max. “We are thrilled to partner with our friends at Cartoon Network Studios to continue innovating and expanding the Adventure Time universe with this world class team.”
