NYCC: 'Adventure Time' Marceline Spin-Off Mini Series Coming November
The series is set to debut it's new seventh season on November 2nd. Just a few days later - on November 14th- it will be joined by Stakes, a mini-series spin-off centring on the popular character of Marceline.
Marcy has been hugely popular since her first appearance on the show, and has already got her own comic spin-off series. The series will revolve around a failed attempt to "cure" The Vampire Queen of her vampirism, and will delve into her back-story. It will even reveal how she first became a vampire.
Stakes will be a 8-part series, described as a "longer form event". Lucky NYCC attendee even got a chance to feast their eyes on the first two episodes at the panel. The existence of this spin-off will be great news for fans of the character, and a chance to learn more about her than ever before. But what we really want to know is- can we have a Lumpy Space Princess spin-off next? (We're only half joking)
It was also revealed in the panel that Adventure Time season 7 will feature another gender-swapped episode (meaning the return of Fionna and Cake) and a half-hour holiday special centred on BMO. It's looking like it's going to be another mathematical season for fans of Finn, Jake PB and co!
