CW Seed has announced that they’ll be bringing another DC anti-hero to their stable of animated shows. Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons will be premiering on the service next year, and will run for twelve episodes.
The show will star Michael Chiklis as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, Sasha Alexander as Addie, Chris Jai Alex as Jackal, Faye Mata as Rose, Griffin Puatu as Jericho, Asher Bishop as Young Joseph, Colin Salmon as Wintergreen, Delbert Hunt as Tiger, and Panta Mosleh as Lady Shiva, among others. Check out Chiklis’ gruff tones in the newly-revealed teaser trailer below:
Based on this cast of characters alone, the show looks to be taking full advantage of Deathstroke’s great supporting cast. The current Deathstroke comic by Christopher Priest and Fernando Pasarin makes use of most of these characters, and if the comic is anything to go by then the show will be a wild ride.
Here’s CW Seed’s description of the series:
“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.I.V.E. Can Deathstroke atone for the sins of the past – or will his family pay the ultimate price?”
Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons will premiere on CW Seed in early 2020.
