Gil Kenan, the director of Frozen Empire, dropped some news about the Ghostbusters Netflix cartoon. It’s called “Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire” and picks up after the 2021 flick “Ghostbusters: Afterlife,” mixing in both new and old Ghostbusters characters. These recent movies are like building on the universe set up in the ’80s originals, just like how “The Real Ghostbusters” cartoon did from ’86 to ’91, and its follow-up “Extreme Ghostbusters” in ’97.

Kenan was chatting on “A Trip to the Movies with Alex Zane” about this new Ghostbusters cartoon for Netflix. He said that he had just checked out this big art presentation for the show and that they were full steam ahead with making scripts and artwork. While he remained somewhat cryptic regarding specific details, he expressed that the current era presents an exhilarating opportunity for those involved in the Ghostbusters franchise.

The Ghostbusters animated series for Netflix was first revealed in June 2022. However, there has been scarce information about its progress in the past two years since the announcement. Nevertheless, Kenan’s statement suggests that the development of the Ghostbusters Netflix series is still underway.

The History of Ghostbusters Animated Series

As mentioned, two prominent series within the Ghostbusters franchise exist: The Real Ghostbusters and Extreme Ghostbusters. The Real Ghostbusters graced television screens from September 13, 1986, until October 5, 1991. Produced by Columbia Pictures Television and DIC Enterprises, this series was distributed through Coca-Cola Telecommunications.

Extreme Ghostbusters continues the narrative of The Real Ghostbusters, unfolding after the conclusion of the original series. This iteration tracks a squad of Ghostbusters in their college years, with the seasoned Egon Spengler at the helm.

Regarding the newest installment in the Ghostbusters franchise, “Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire.”

“Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire” soared to the summit of the North American box office over the weekend, raking in an estimated $45.2 million—an exceptional and noteworthy debut.

In his analysis of the film’s casting, David A. Gross from Franchise Entertainment Research underscores that the success of horror movies is more than just reliant on the cast, even with notable actors such as Sydney Sweeney. He assesses the opening weekend’s performance as “fair,” highlighting that horror films appeal from captivating hooks, such as the evil doll, the sinister grin, the unseen or silent presence, found footage, or the possessed child. Gross suggests that the clarity of the hook in “Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire” may not be entirely evident to audiences.
