Netflix has announced the arrival of a new adult animated limited series. Carol & the End of the World is set to arrive in December and has already caused a stir thanks to its link to the hit series Rick and Morty.
The new existential comedy series arrives courtesy of creator Dan Guterman, famed for his work on Community and Rick and Morty. Carol & the End of the World stars Euphoria’s Martha Kelly as the titular protagonist.
The cast also includes Beth Grant, Lawrence Pressman, Kimberly Hébert Gregory, Mel Rodriguez, Bridget Everett, Michael Chernus and Delbert Hunt.
The series will arrive on the streaming platform on December 15th, 2023, spread across ten 30-minute episodes.
The official synopsis on Netflix reads: “With a mysterious planet hurtling towards Earth, extinction is imminent for the people of the world. While most feel liberated to pursue their wildest dreams, one quiet and always uncomfortable woman stands alone — lost among the hedonistic masses.”
“Carol & The End Of The World is a love letter to routine,” said Guterman said in a new press statement. “A show about the comforts of monotony. An animated and existential comedy about the daily rituals that make up the gaps that make up a life.”
As yet, the trailer for Carol & The End of the World has been kept under wraps. While we wait, watch the trailer for season seven of Rick and Morty below.
