The world of Ghostbusters is going to expand with the new announcement that Netflix and Sony Pictures Animation are in development on an all-new animated series based on the beloved Ghostbusters IP, which will be debuted exclusively on Netflix. Production will be in conjunction with Ghost Corps, Inc.

Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan, the minds behind Ghostbusters: Afterlife and the future of Ghost Corps, are attached to the series as Executive Producers.

The series is part of the expanding Ghostbusters universe, which began with Ivan Reitman’s Ghostbusters in 1984 and has since become a mega-pop culture phenomenon culminating in last year’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife. As a part of today’s Ghostbusters Day celebration, Reitman and Kenan are expected to reveal more about what audiences can expect from the future of the Ghostbusters franchise.

Previously, Reitman served as the director of Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Up In The Air, and Juno; Kenan served as the writer of Ghostbusters: Afterlife and director of the animated features A Boy Called Christmas and Monster House.

As a fan of the Ghostbusters series, I am excited to see where this series will connect to the previous movies and I hope that they bring back the female Ghostbusters that have been sadly swept under the rug in recent years.
