Elvis Presley is set to be on Netflix through Agent Elvis. The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll rose to fame in the 1950s and instantly became a heartthrob around the globe. He is undoubtedly regarded as one of the biggest icons of the 20th Century. But what made him an icon was not just his singing but also his style and charm.
The singer passed away in 1977 and the masses mourned his death. But his fame was larger than life. Now, his widowed wife Priscilla Presley wishes to continue spreading his charm. Helping her along is Netflix, which is set to release the show this year. Here are details of the action-filled, animated series.
Release date, cast, plot, and more details into Netflix’s upcoming Agent Elvis
The world has seen the charm and magic of Elvis Presley but he will now be seen in action, hunting bad guys as well. Agent Elvis is an upcoming series that is set to capture the aura, looks, and charm of the late iconic singer, but as a justice-seeking agent. Netflix took to Twitter to announce that the series will be released in March 2023, with ten episodes. No exact date has been announced so far. The post stated how the singer always wanted to be a superhero, and it is coming true now.

Priscilla Presley created the animated series along with John Eddie. Interstellar star Matthew McConaughey has lent his voice as the lead. Netflix recently dropped the trailer of the series and it opened with, “Every once in a while, man accomplishes the impossible.” The animation is expected to mix thrill, comedy, and action. The protagonist is a famous singer during the day and a smart agent at night. Almost like a blend of James Bond with Superman considering the characters’ double identities.

A movie called Elvis was released in 2022 on the life of the singer as well. But the animation will have the twist of imagination to it. Agent King was the initial name given to the Netflix series but was later changed. With the rise of original animations from the OTT, it will be exciting to watch how it fares among the fans.
