Kevin Smith Will Produce a Masters of the Universe Sequel Series
Back in 1982, Filmation debuted He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, an animated series based upon Mattel’s He-Man action figures. While the series ended in 1988, it never had a true series finale. But thanks to Netflix, the original Masters of the Universe is getting an old school comeback!
At Power-Con 2019, filmmaker Kevin Smith announced that he’s executive producing Masters of the Universe: Revelation. Smith will also be the showrunner, while Powerhouse (Netflix’s Castlevania series) will provide the animation. According to Smith, the series will be the direct sequel to Filmation’s Masters of the Universe.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Smith’s Fatman Beyond co-host, Marc Bernardin, is also on the writing staff. They will be joined by Supergirl veteran Eric Carrasco, as well as Tim Sheridan (Reign of the Supermen) and Diya Mishra (Magic: The Gathering).
Here’s the official synopsis from Netflix: “A radical return to Eternia, Revelation is a direct sequel series to the classic era of Masters of the Universe. Featuring fan-favorites He-Man, Orko, Cringer and Man-At-Arms, the story pits our heroic warriors and guardians of Castle Grayskull against Skeletor, Evil-Lyn, Beast Man and the vile legions of snake mountain!
But after a ferocious final battle forever fractures Eternia, it’s up to Teela to solve the mystery of the missing Sword of Power in a race against time to prevent the end of the Universe! Her journey will uncover the secrets of Grayskull at last. This is the epic He-Man and the Masters of the Universe saga fans have waited 35 years to see!”
Netflix hasn’t set a date for Masters of the Universe: Revelation. However, the streaming service did drop the first teaser poster, which you can see below.
