Donald Glover and Stephen Glover have been tapped as showrunners.

“Deadpool” made his debut in 1991 and has become one of Marvel’s most popular characters. The 2016 feature film grossed more than $363,000,000. “Deadpool 2” is set to be released next year.

There’s no word on who will give voice to “the merc with the mouth” for the television show. Ryan Reynolds donned the red and black suit for the feature films.
