After keeping fans waiting for nearly a decade, Kid Cudi revealed on Monday that the third installment of his 'Man On The Moon' album franchise will be hitting streaming services "soon."

The Cleveland-bred artist kept things short and sweet alongside a suspenseful and spooky teaser trailer featuring old school footage of him performing and a brief snippet. "The trilogy continues," he wrote. Let's go! 

Back in 2009, the 'Man On The Moon' trilogy was launched via Cudi's debut album 'The End of Day' followed in 2010 by 'The Legend of Mr. Rager.' Most recently in summer 2018, Cudi and Kanye West collaborated on their 'KIDS SEE GHOSTS' EP.

It's unclear whether 'MOTM III' will impact the timing of Cudi's other upcoming album 'Entergalactic,' which is supposed to release next summer as a sonic pairing for Kenya Barris' ('Black-ish') adult animated Netflix series of the same title.

"The idea of there's never been an album and a series dropped at the same time, so each song will have a 30-minute narrative that kind of explains what that song is about and it's a love story," Barris explained to Complex's Watch Less podcast in Nov. 2019. "It's a youthful love story told through Cudi's music."

During a separate interview with Complex, Cudi said that he's approaching much of the 'Entergalactic' album "from the perspective of the [show's] character." He continued, "A lot of the songs are about love and relationships. I'm not in a relationship right now, so it's purely written from my imagination and writing as this character."

Yet the latest addition to Cudi's IMDB profile is his casting in the Netflix movie 'Don’t Look Up' starring huge names like Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Jennifer Lawrence, Ariana Grande, and his "brother" Timothée Chalamet. 

He captioned the news on IG, "Excited isn't even the word. To be a part of this epic cast is unreal. And my first movie w my brother Timmy. God is good." The two celebrated Cudi's 35th birthday together.
