In addition to another season of the DC Comics-inspired My Adventures with Superman series, Adult Swim is producing a new animated show based on Vertigo Comics’ Get Jiro! graphic novels by co-writers Anthony Bourdain and Joel Rose and artist Langdon Foss.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, Adult Swim has put in a series order for a Get Jiro! series from Sharper co-writers Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka. Like the comics, the new series will tell the story of a deadly sushi chef living in a dystopian near future where restaurant-goers murder for reservations. Adult Swim has also ordered an adaptation of Jillian Tamaki’s 2010 web comic SuperMutant Magic Academy that’s set to be produced by Tamaki and Regular Show creator J.G. Quintel.

Currently, no other details about either show’s crew, cast, or tentative release date have been announced.
