This new spinoff series is based on Shigemitsu Harada and Issei Hatsuyoshiya's "Cells at Work! Code Black (Hataraku Saibō Black)" spinoff manga. LIDEN Films is in charge of the animation production. The series will be directed by Hideyo Yamamoto and Hayashi Mori is supervising and writing the scripts. In addition, Eiji Abiko will serve as the character designer, and Yūgo Kannois is the music composer.

The series' cast includes: Kenn as Red Blood Cell, Lynn as White Bood Cell (Neutrophilic), Yumi Uchiyama as White Bood Cell (Neutrophilic), Takashi Narumi as Gastric Chief Cell and Yurika Kubo as Platelet.

Kodansha comics describes the spinoff series as: In this new spinoff of the hit manga, a newbie Red Blood Cell is one of 37 trillion working to keep this body running. But something's wrong! Stress hormones keep yelling at him to go faster. The blood vessels are crusted over with cholesterol. Ulcers, fatty liver, trouble (ahem) downstairs... It's hard for a cell to keep working when every day is a CODE BLACK!
The manga and anime Cells at Work! showed you what happens when a young, healthy body gets in trouble... but what if the body wasn't so young, and was never very healthy? This new take stars a fresh-faced Red Blood Cell and his friend, the buxom White Blood Cell, as they struggle to keep themselves and their world together through alcoholism, smoking, erectile dysfunction, athlete's foot, gout... it's literal body horror! Whoever this guy is, he's lucky his cells can't go on strike!

Apart from the spinoff series, a second season of the TV anime series adaptation of Akane Shimizu's Cells at Work! manga will also premiere on January 9, 2021 at 11:30 PM JST.
