BRENDON SMALL Says He's "Knee Deep" In Writing The New Metalocalypse Movie

There's no projected release date just yet.


Metalocalypse will get the ending it deserves hopefully sometime next year. The movie will be the follow-up to the 2013 movie The Doomstar Requiem, and according to show creator Brendon Small is currently being written and produced. Small said in an interview with Sara Parker of 93.3 WMMR that he's "knee deep" in writing the finale but can't say too much about it.

"I can tell you… what has already been released, which is that we are making a feature Metalocalypse movie, and that's what we're in production on right now. So we're right in the middle of making the movie, so all the questions that were still lingering after The Doomstar Requiem — a one-hour long rock opera special — are being answered… I don't wanna say too much about it, but it's a very big project. We're all excited to be knee deep in it right now."

When asked for a release date, Small simply replied that it'll be up to Adult Swim to decide. "I just know that I've still got work to do," he added. All we know so far is from the synopsis provided by Adult Swim in 2021, which read:

"The power-hungry TRIBUNAL unveils their secret and deadly 'Falconback Project' as the world grows in embattled chaos and the menacing Doomstar breaches the Earth's atmosphere while the mysterious and twisted dissent of a band member threatens the future of Dethklok. Picking up directly after the heroic rescue of Toki Wartooth: Can Dethklok choose between their egos and the greater good of the world to embark on a gauntlet of dangers that will try their very souls and finally write the song that will be their salvation?"

Metalocalpyse originally ran between 2006 and 2013, culminating in The Doomstar Requiem. In 2015, Metalocalypse fans campaigned for one final season of the show. In April 2016, Adult Swim launched a petition to make Adult Swim (you read that correctly) sign the petition to bring back Metaloclypse, as well as launched a live video feed of a fax machine with all entries going directly into a recycling bin. So they weren't exactly taking things seriously back then, but here we are.
