'Bone' Animated Series Based on Comics in the Works at Netflix

Jeff Smith's critically hailed Bone comic book series is coming to television.

Netflix has acquired rights to the award-winning international comics and is developing an animated series as part of its full-court press into the kids programming space.

The streaming giant's Bone series will follow the iconic Bone cousins on an adventure through a vast, uncharted desert and into a mysterious valley filled with wonderful and terrifying creators. Smith is attached to oversee the TV take.

Bone, which Smith began working on at the age of 10, was first published in 1991 and tallied 55 issues until it ended in 2004. The series remains one of the most celebrated comics, earning an impressive 10 Eisner Awards (the highest prize given to a comic) and 11 Harvey Awards. The series is considered a pioneer in comics publishing for kids and served as the launch title for Scholastic's graphic novel imprint, Graphix Books, when it bowed in 2005.

"I’ve waited a long time for this,” Smith said Wednesday in a statement. “Netflix is the perfect home for Bone. Fans of the books know that the story develops chapter by chapter and book by book. An animated series is exactly the way to do this! The team at Netflix understands Bone and is committed to doing something special — this is good news for kids and cartoon lovers all over the world.”

Netflix Scraps Plans For a Bone Animated Series

Way back in 2019, Netflix secured the rights to Jeff Smith’s Bone with plans to turn the acclaimed comic book into an animated series. But following three years of radio silence, the project’s latest journey to screens has reached its end. According to The Wrap, Netflix has quietly cancelled its Bone adaptation.

The series’ cancellation comes amid massive shakeups at Netflix HQ. Specifically, the Kids & Family division of its animation studio.
