As a matter of fact, it was at the beginning of this year that the script for the pilot episode was complete, and now fans are that much closer to seeing the series come to life. Hissrich officially announced the release window of the live-action series.
Though it wasn’t confirmed before, Hissrich initially revealed a tentative 2020 release year, but it seems the adaptation will arrive sooner than later. With a “shiny” new update, the official window is revealed:
