Warners Gets Animated For "Supernatural"

"Supernatural", the Vancouver-lensed CW dramatic episodic series, will be cross-platformed into a Warners 'anime' cartoon series from MadHouse ("Death Note").

The series will reportedly cover the first two seasons of the live-action "Supernatural" series, including new stories, recapping the origins of the 'Winchester' brothers’ childhood.

22 episodes will be produced, shipping January 2011, containing episodes 1 and 2, the second volume scheduled for February, including episodes 3-12 and volume 3, containing episodes 13-22, shipping April 6.

The anime project is being led by "Supernatural" creator Eric Kripke with Madhouse co-founder Masao Maruyama executive producing. Naoya Takayama ("Night Head") will supervise the scripts for the new series, with characters designed by Takahiro Yoshimatsu ("Trigun").
