Krapopolis Season 1 Release Date: With the recent debut of his new series Krapopolis at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this year, Dan Harmon’s animation library is expanding. A brand-new show that transports viewers to ancient Greece is coming from the creator of the science fiction animated series Rick and Morty and Solar Opposites.
Harmon has been working on the show since June 2020, when he signed a contract with Fox Entertainment. Bento Box Entertainment, an animation studio, will develop the program. Jordan Young (Bojack Horseman) will direct the project, and Harmon will serve as its executive producer.
Another remarkable initiative is Krapopolis, the first animated network television series curated on the blockchain. The choice is consistent with the NFT industry expansion by Fox and Bento Box Entertainment. People can already purchase “Krap Chickens,” which are special NFTs, on the program’s official website to access gated material, merchandising, prizes, and even vote on specific features that will influence the show through its episodes.
Greek mythology has undergone several media adaptations because of its extensive and practically endless oral tradition. Since this setting is well-known and offers countless potential plot lines for the series, it only seems logical that Harmon based Krapopolis around it.
It’s also encouraging to see him use this adaptation of Greek mythology to draw on his well-known comedic heritage. With a few notable exceptions, such as Disney’s Hercules, it can be uncommon to see these adaptations from a comic book viewpoint. The show even received an unexpected early renewal for a second season before its 2023 premiere earlier this month.
This helpful guide will show you all we currently know about Krapopolis until then.
Krapopolis Season 1 Release Date
In May 2023, Fox will premiere the first season of Krapopolis as part of its new Monday night animation lineup. Fox had high hopes for the animated series, as evidenced by the renewal for a second season before the program even debuted. Audiences are getting a sneak preview of Krapopolis ahead of its premiere in 2023; The first episode will air on Fox on Sunday, November 27.
What is Krapopolis Season 1 About?
The dysfunctional family dynamic, at the center of many Harmon projects, is populated with a quirky cast of individuals who travel through illogical hijinks together.
The fictional setting of Krapopolis is an Ancient Greek city ruled by Tyrannis, a youthful human monarch. His odd family of monsters and deities is beside him, ready to assist him in leading this city of humans to victory.
Tyrannis will encounter different Greek mythological characters throughout the episodes, and they will present him with several bizarre circumstances that are just as bizarre as the folktales that are told about them. The series, according to Harmon, would “visit” some characters or themes that will interact with the original primary cast of the show rather than “telling the events again.”
Who’s In the Krapopolis Season 1 Cast?
Dan Harmon truly excels at assembling stellar casts for many of his projects. Some cast members in Krapopolis have recognized iconic voices that fit their characters quite well.
The mortal ruler Tyrannis, played by Richard Ayoade of The IT Crowd, does his best to rule a city in ancient Greece. His father is a primitive “mantitaur” (half centaur and half manticore) named Shlub. At the same time, his mother is an alcoholic goddess named Deliria, voiced by Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso) (What We Do in the Shadows).
Deliria’s sneak look makes it seem that her entire family resembles her in many ways and that she is not particularly interested in “governing a city.” They make a great couple because Shlub is an artist who has never been paid for anything in his life.
The first clip also introduced Tyrannis’ half-brother, Hippocampus, a hybrid fish and human preoccupied with slightly immoral scientific research. Duncan Trussell voices Hippocampus (The Midnight Gospel). Stupendous, Tyrannis’ half-sister, is also a strong yet unassuming warrior portrayed by Pam Murphy (Mapleworth Murders).
She is the child of Shlub and a mermaid, which supposedly created her a powerful human who doesn’t hesitate to chop off a monster’s head when the opportunity arises.

Krapopolis, like Harmon’s earlier programs, undoubtedly paves the way for the eventual incorporation of more characters drawn from many facets of its world and voiced by other guest actors. He reportedly stated that among the Season 1 guest stars will be Susan Sarandon (Thelma & Louise), Will Forte (The Last Man on Earth), Michael Urie (Ugly Betty), Jane Lynch (Glee), Amber Stevens West (Ghosted), Yvette Nicole Brown (Community), and Dave Franco during the show’s SDCC panel (Now You See Me).
At a recent New York Comic-Con panel, Harmon reportedly announced other guest stars, including Tom Kenny from Spongebob Squarepants, Daveed Diggs from Hamilton, Joel McHale from Community, and Stephanie Beatriz from Brooklyn Nine-Nine as the goddess Athena. The final guest star is Ben Stiller from Zoolander, who will play Prometheus.
Dan Harmon’s Role in Krapopolis Season 1
Dan Harmon is the show’s creator and executive producer, which is one of its most intriguing qualities. Since he was the co-creator, writer, and executive producer of Rick & Morty and Harmonquest, Harmon has had a long and illustrious career as a writer for animated television.
He has also produced a lot of work outside of animation, including co-creating and writing for The Sarah Silverman Program and Community, as well as penning Monster House, Kung Fu Panda, and Doctor Strange. The documentary Harmontown, about Harmon and his podcast of the same name, debuted at the South by Southwest Film Festival in March 2014.
Harmon is such a fascinating figure in the writing community. Krapopolis’ showrunner is Jordan Young, a producer, and writer for BoJack Horseman, Drawn Together, and Raising Hope.
Is There a Krapopolis Season 1 Trailer?
Krapopolis has yet to receive a complete trailer, but Fox has already made available an extended snippet. In this, Tyrannis (Richard Ayoade) is in charge of a city assembly to deal with a Medusa figure that has just arrived. The show’s humor, residents, and some of the main characters are all introduced in a fun way.
Fox broadcasts Krapopolis. All regular cable subscriptions and live TV streaming providers like FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, Sling TV, and YouTube TV offer access to the network. Krapopolis is accessible on the Fox website as well. For more such updates do follow us only on Lee Daily.
