Todd McFarlane’s Spawn


Based on the acclaimed best-selling Image Comics Spawn series, Todd McFarlane’s Spawn finds a lone soldier back from hell and the only person who can stop the apocalypse! Below is the official series description for Todd McFarlane’s Spawn, courtesy of HBO Entertainment:

There is a war going on between heaven and hell. Earth is the battlefield. Human souls are the prize. On the front lines, where good and evil collide, is a soldier in search of his past and his future: Spawn. HBO presents this groundbreaking animated series based on the mega-successful comic-book series. Combining fantastic imagery with action, romance, and high-level espionage, the series introduces Spawn, formerly known as Al Simmons – a CIA hit man whose death causes him to seal a deal with the devil so that he can return to his wife Wanda. Instead, the devil transforms him into “hell-spawn,” a dark warrior who battles the forces of evil on Earth-and in himself-to uncover the truth about his identity and fulfill his destiny.

Executive produced by Todd McFarlane, and in conjunction with the release of the live-action 1997 Spawn movie, Todd McFarlane’s Spawn ran for three seasons on HBO from 1997 to 1999, nabbing high ratings and multiple awards during its tenure. Todd McFarlane’s Spawn is currently available for purchase and rental on DVD and on multiple digital formats, and to stream on HBO Max.
