It’s a big summer for Cuphead fans, as Studio MDHR has announced season 2 of The Cuphead Show will drop on Netflix this summer, in addition to Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course coming on June 30.
Studio MDHR is the developer of Cuphead, and its founders — the Moldenhauer brothers — served as Executive Producers on The Cuphead Show. While there’s no official release date set, this is the first official confirmation we’ve seen of more episodes. You can see the official season 2 announcement below.

The Cuphead Show is a Netflix original cartoon starring Cuphead, Mugman, and various villains from the Cuphead video game. The show follows Cuphead and Mugman’s ongoing battle with the Devil and his henchmen. Season 1 only explored a handful of the game’s expansive cast of bosses, so there’s plenty of material left for season 2 and beyond.
The first season of the show was a big hit. In our review, we called the show amazing, saying, “The Cuphead Show captures the essence of the popular game, giving fans old and new a surreal, exhilarating, chaotic, and all-around fun throwback cartoon with memorable characters and stunning animation. After Arcane and Castlevania, it’s another feather in Netflix’s cap for stellar video game adaptations.”
