This is super exciting, and thanks to Variety for first reporting this news.

You'd probably recall seeing Pascal as Dornish Prince Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones, or Netflix's Narcos. He'll also be appearing in Wonder Woman 1984 next year.

And we just have to add this this adorable commercial for Happy Socks, where we get to see a way different side of Pascal.

We'll let you know as soon as we learn more information about the series, which is currently in production now.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool. 

Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 

 Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 

 Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
