‘Rick and Morty’ Crew Scores Netflix Series Order for ‘The Undervale’

Netflix‘s latest animated series order comes from several people behind Rick and Morty.

The streamer has ordered The Undervale from creator and showrunner Matt Roller, a former writer for the Adult Swim mainstay and current co-executive producer of Fox’s Krapopolis. Rick and Morty co-creator Dan Harmon and executive producer Steve Levy are also exec producing, along with Spider-Man: No Way Home writer Chris McKenna. Erica Hayes, also a Rick and Morty alum, will be supervising director on The Undervale.

The Undervale is wildly inventive and I’m very grateful to Matt, Chris, Dan and their team for bringing their talents to Netflix,” said Billy Wee, director of adult animation at Netflix. “They are phenomenal collaborators, and I can’t wait for fans all over the world to experience this hilarious show.”

The series centers on single mother of two kids who runs a haunted hotel with the help of her estranged — and deceased — brother, who thinks the ghosts have some pretty good ideas.

“I’m thrilled to be working with Netflix and an amazingly talented cast and crew to bring to life the stories of the dead, the evil, and the struggling hospitality workers at the Undervale Hotel,” said Roller.
