The French satirical magazine, whose office was the target of a terrorist attack in early 2015, will launch a German version of the weekly on December 1, the Hollywood Reporter.
The first German Charlie Hebdo will have an initial print run of 200,000 and will consist mostly of articles and cartoons translated from the French edition. Editors, however, said they also wanted to create some original German content and were looking to collaborate with German cartoonists.
German readers were among the most supportive of Charlie Hebdo following the attack on January 7, 2015, in which jihadists gunned down 12 people at the weekly's Paris office.
