Christopher Yost, the co-writer of the New X-Men comic book, is the head writer for the new Fantastic Four animated series.

According to information provided to The Continuum by Cartoon Network, Cartoon Network Europe is co-producing the series together with Paris based-production company Moonscoop, French broadcaster M6 and Marvel.

Twenty-six 30-minute episodes are planned. Fantastic Four is expected to premiere on Cartoon Network UK in the second half of 2006. No word yet on when it will premiere in the United States.

"This is a great opportunity to build on the success of the recent Fantastic Four movie, and to focus on making the franchise accessible to our core kid audience," said Daniel Lennard, Senior Director, Original Animation & Acquisitions, Cartoon Network Europe, Middle East & Africa. "We're working with Marvel and Moonscoop to create a show that will give our viewers the excitement they expect from a superhero show, with the enjoyment they'd expect from a smart, character-driven comedy. Flame on!"

Yost's television credits include The Batman, X-Men: Evolution and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The show is being produced at Moonscoop with pre-production in Paris and computer graphic production at its CG studios in Angouleme. The series will mix 2D and 3D animation.

"The master plan of the traitor deep within the heart of the Ultimates comes to startling fruition!" said editor Ralph Macchio. "The Triskelion is under massive attack and this may be the defining moment for Nick Fury's superhuman defense initiative."

Here's how Marvel describes the issue:

"With the devastating revelation of the traitor in the Ultimates, the team is reeling in shock! But even that sad situation can't stop wedding bells from ringing for Tony Stark and Natasha Romanov. Make sure to bring your invitation‹to action!"
