Final Space is crossing the pond.
Netflix UK has acquired UK rights to the TBS animated sci-fi comedy series after striking a deal with international distributor Turner International. The series will premiere on Netflix UK on Friday July 20th, when the complete first season will be available to stream.
Created by Olan Rogers, Final Space follows Gary, a spaceman who is working off a prison sentence and makes a mysterious new alien friend Mooncake who he immediately bonds with.
