Fun fact, Netflix passed on Final Space.
On the same day that the cast and producers of Final Space will be embarking on a San Diego Comic-Con panel to talk all things season two, the TBS animated series has been picked up for streaming in the UK by Netflix and will be available starting July 20th.
Renewed for a second season, Final Space is about a spaceman named Gary who is working off a prison sentence and makes a mysterious new alien friend Mooncake who he immediately bonds with. But what Gary doesn’t know is that his adorable new sidekick is actually wanted by the sinister Lord Commander who will stop at nothing to use Mooncake’s untapped powers for evil.
Final Space is created by “Tennessee wonder child” Olan Rogers, who is an independent filmmaker, actor, comedian and entrepreneur with close to a million YouTube subscribers. Rogers and David Sacks are writers and executive producers for the TBS original, which is produced by Conaco, New Form and in association with Turner’s Studio T. Rogers stars in the animated series with Fred Armisen, Tom Kenny, David Tennant, Tika Sumpter, Steven Yeun and Coty Galloway.
