- This November fans of adult animation and stories about crime, hit men, and monkeys are in for a treat as Hulu presents the new series Hit-Monkey based on the Marvel comic of the same name.
- The show hails from Marvel and follows a monkey assassin and his human ghost partner as they hunt down killers.
- Along with the trailer, Hulu shared a new poster featuring Hit-Monkey wielding a thin sword that shows the other characters in the reflection of the blade.
- The show is inspired by the comic series that launched in 2010 and was originally planned to be part of a quartet of shows for Hulu. The idea was to create shows about M.O.D.O.K., Hit-Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler, and Howard the Duck then feature all four in a team up called The Offenders. Sadly, the latter two were cancelled.
- Hit-Monkey will consist of ten episodes with all available to stream on November 17th, 2021.
