Jason DeMarco, the Senior Vice President overseeing the anime and action series/longform division at Warner Bros. Animation (WBA) and Cartoon Network Studios (CNS), recently took to Twitter to express his satisfaction with the performance of “FLCL: Grunge” and “FLCL: Shoegaze” on Adult Swim.
Despite considering them ratings successes, DeMarco announced that there are no plans to produce any more seasons of these series. He extended his gratitude to the dedicated fans who contributed to the success of these two shows.
Both “FLCL: Grunge” and “FLCL: Shoegaze” are new additions to the FLCL anime franchise, with DeMarco serving as the executive producer and Maki Terashima-Furuta from Production I.G. USA as the producer for both seasons.
“FLCL: Grunge” made its debut on Adult Swim on September 9th, consisting of three episodes. Directed by Hitoshi Takekiyo at MontBlanc Pictures, this CGI anime explores the lives of three young adults who have recently graduated and entered the workforce, delving into themes of maturity and adulthood.
Meanwhile, “FLCL: Shoegaze,” directed by Yutaka Uemura at Production I.G and NUT, premiered on September 30th. This installment is set a decade after the events of “FLCL Alternative” and centers around a high school boy and girl as they navigate their own unique adventures.
It’s worth noting that “FLCL Alternative” and “FLCL Progressive” were previous sequels within the FLCL franchise, providing fans with more of the iconic series they love.
