Cuphead Creators Talk 36-Episode Pack

Speaking with Animation Magazine, Cuphead creators Chad and Jared Moldenhauer discussed the longevity of The Cuphead Show and explained how certain narratives were split into parts:

” Some of the initial 36 episodes, which will premiere over three separate drops, are presented as two- and even three-parters.”

Moldenhauer’s quote of “initial” episodes seems to suggest that more could be on the way after Season 3.

Dave Wasson added that the episodes’ runtime was originally going to be seven minutes, but the creators found it difficult to stay within those boundaries:

“We were originally using the old theatrical shorts as a model for structure, but we found it was hard to stay within a seven-minute format. These stories wanted to be a little longer, so it caps off at something like 10 1/2 or 11 minutes, though each episode is a little different in running time.”
