Gudetama: Release Date, Plot For Netflix’s Eggcelent Show On Depressed Yellow

September 25, 2022

When will Netflix’s adorable Gudetama: An Eggcelent Adventure be released and what is the series about?

Netflix’s TUDUM event revealed a whole host of exciting new shows, but arguably no series has the potential to break into the Top 10 GOAT rankings more than Gudetama…the story of a depressed egg that’s too chicken to explore Japan.

All yellows aside, Gudetama has the potential to be one of Netflix’s most adorable and unusual series of 2022, with its first official trailer just streaming online. So what is Gudetama about, when will it be released worldwide on Netflix, and who has been cast in the new series?


What is Gudetama: An Eggcelent Adventure?

Gudetama: An Eggcelent Adventure is an upcoming Japanese live-action/CG animation hybrid series, adapted from the TV series Gudetama which focuses on a lazy and depressed egg.

The main series is rather unusual in that it airs new episodes Saturday through Monday, but the shows are only one minute long; in 2017, the show already had more than 1000 episodes.

The new Netflix adaptation will give Gudetama and his feisty chick friend Shakipiyo an all-new adventure as they search for their mother across modern-day Japan.

“A lethargic, empathetic road movie about finding his parents, for anyone who just wants to bask! Having resigned himself to the fact that it will end up on someone’s plate, Gudetama just wants to be lazy all the time. But, carried away by Shakipiyo, a daring and authoritative girl, he leaves the refrigerator and heads out into the world. Together, these polar opposites go on an adventure to find their mother! – Synopsis by Gudetama, via Netflix Anime.
