Netflix Sets Premiere Date for New Animated Comedy 'Exploding Kittens' Based on Card Game

Netflix has today announced the premiere date for its upcoming original animated comedy series Exploding Kittens based on the best-selling card game.

The first season will be released on Friday, July 12.

Earth sucks, so God gets fired and sent to Earth to reconnect with humanity. The catch? He's trapped in the body of a chubby house cat. As part of his rehabilitation, he moves in with a dysfunctional family and tries to solve their problems, but ends up spending a lot of time chasing laser pointers. And to top it off, Godcat's next-door neighbor, who is also a cat, turns out to be none other than his nemesis, the Antichrist. The result is the ultimate fight between good versus evil... except, Godcat is distracted by a pigeon he saw in the yard and Devilcat is busy napping on someone's laptop.

The voice cast features Tom Ellis, Sasheer Zamata, Suzy Nakamura, Mark Proksch, Ally Maki and Kenny Yates.

Shane Kosakowski and Matthew Inman developed the series. They executive produce with Mike Judge, Greg Daniels, Dustin Davis, Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping and Elan Lee. Bandera Entertainment and Chernin Entertainment Group produce.
