Last week may have marked 42 years since the King of Rock and Roll tragically passed away after suffering a heart attack, but it has just been announced Elvis is set to get his very own cartoon!

That's right.

An adult action-comedy animated series starring a fictional Elvis Presley is coming to Netflix.

The series, called Agent King, is co-created by Priscilla Presley and will reportedly follow Elvis as he moonlights as a secret government agent while still touring America as a musician.

The synopsis reads: "Elvis Presley trades in his white jumpsuit for a jet pack when he is covertly inducted into a secret government spy program to help battle the dark forces that threaten the country he loves — all while holding down his day job as the King of Rock and Roll."

When announcing the new series, Priscilla stated: "From the time Elvis was a young boy he always dreamed of being the superhero fighting crime and saving the world! Agent King lets him do just that.

• Adam Lambert reveals he wants to play Elvis Presley in the upcoming Tom Hanks movie

"My co-creator John Eddie and I are so excited to be working with Netflix and Sony Animation on this amazing project and getting the chance to show the world an Elvis they haven’t seen before."

There's no word on when the series will hit our screens.
