Powerhouse Animation Studios has helped with the animation for Netflix’s Castlevania series, which has garnered a lot of praises from fans. Soon, Netflix users will get to see another project it’s been working on called Gods & Heroes, an animated series set in the world of Greek Mythology. Netflix has announced that it has ordered eight episodes for Gods & Heroes, a story about a young man who’s been cast aside by his own people and finds out he’s the illegitimate son of Zeus. He’s the only one able to save Heaven and Earth and must survive an angry goddess hellbent on killing him along with her minions.

The series is being developed by Charley and Vlas Parlapanides (Immortals, Death Note), who will be writing and executive producing. The series will feature voice acting from Jason O’Mara (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Mamie Gummer (True Detective), Derek Phillips (Friday Night Lights), Chris Diamantopoulos (Silicon Valley), Jessica Henwick (Luke Cage), Melina Kanakaredes (The Resident), Claudia Christian (Babylon 5), and Elias Toufexis (The Expanse, Deus Ex: Human Revolution).

Powerhouse Animation is the lead animation studio working on Gods & Heroes, and it’s also working on the upcoming Seis Manos.

“In Gods & Heroes we wanted to tell a wholly original story set in the beloved world of Greek mythology. We are thankful for such an amazing cast and for such great creative partners at Netflix and Powerhouse Animation, who continue to push the envelope and expand the anime genre in a manner we had only dreamed of,” said Vlas and Charley Parlapanides.

“The traditions of global mythology and folklore are fertile ground for anime projects and we are excited to explore the epic settings and characters of Greek mythology in our new series, Gods & Heroes,” said John Derderian, Director of Anime for Netflix. “Charley and Vlas have an outstanding track record of telling gripping stories set in fantastical worlds and we are thrilled to bring their unique vision for the Gods of Mount Olympus to Netflix members around the world.”

Netflix is growing its anime and anime-inspired series which includes Castlevania, Devilman Crybaby, Godzilla: The Planet Eater, Baki, Violet Evergarden, B: The Beginning, Aggretsuko, and The Seven Deadly Sins. It’s also working on producing more including Pacific Rim, Altered Carbon, Yasuke, Ghost in the Shell, and Trese.
