Madeleine Martin voices Fionna in Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake. Martin was also the voice of Fionna in the Fionna and Cake episodes of Adventure Time. She previously voiced JoJo in the series JoJo’s Circus and played Madeleine in The Marvelous Ms. Maisel.

Cake will also be played by her voice actor from Adventure Time- Roz Ryan. Ryan previously voiced Thalia, one of the Muses in Disney’s Hercules and Hercules the Animated Series. She was also the voice of Bubbie the Whale in The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, voiced Cyborg’s grandmother in Teen Titans Go!, and played Grandma Gayle King in the Zendaya starring series K.C. Undercover.

Tom Kenny will also reprise his role from Adventure Time and voice Simon Petrikov. (Petrikov spent most of Adventure Time as the Ice King due to his crown which gave him ice powers but also drove him mad.) Kenny is best known as the iconic voice of SpongeBob SquarePants, but that’s far from his only notable work. He also voiced Dog in the series CatDog, voiced Scoutmaster Lumpus in Camp Lazlo, and voiced Squanchy in Rick and Morty.

The rest of the voice cast includes Donald Glover reprising his role as Marshall Lee, as well as Andrew Rannells (Big Mouth), Kayleigh McKee (Jujutsu Kaisen 0), and Sean Rohani (Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers).

What Is Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake About?

From their earliest appearances, first simply as art, and then as characters in the Ice King’s fanfiction, Fionna and Cake have had a devoted following. It’s hard not to love Fionna, the human, and Cake, the cat. In the Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake limited series they’ll be teaming up with Simon Petrikov, the character who spent much of Adventure Time known as the Ice King, to travel the multiverse and fight against a new villain. We’ve also learned that Fionna and Cake will feature a somewhat older Fionna and be targeted more toward a young adult audience.

The official synopsis via MAX reads:

Based on characters from the beloved “Adventure Time” franchise, this brand-new 10-episode series set in the land of Ooo follows the alternate universe versions of Finn & Jake on a multiverse-hopping journey towards self-discovery. When Fionna and her sidekick Cake find themselves in the crosshairs of a powerful new foe, they have no choice but to seek the help of former Ice King Simon Petrikov. With appearances from Marshall Lee, Marceline the Vampire Queen, Princess Bubblegum, and Finn the Human, “Adventure Time: Fionna & Cake” transports fans of the classic series to worlds both familiar and alien.
