Marvel’s New Warriors television series (which will feature Milana Vayntrub as Squirrel Girl) is apparently searching for a new home. The show was originally ordered straight to series by Disney owned family oriented network Freeform, but the cable network couldn’t find a home for it in their 2018 lineup.
And Marvel really wants it to air in 2018.
The complicating factor is that there’s a rumor that Marvel isn’t allowed to shop their new shows to non-Disney owned networks. Marvel denies this (and it would certainly make life complicated for Netflix and Hulu regarding future deals), but if it’s true New Warriors may have a rocky road ahead of them.
Besides Vayntrub, the show’s cast also includes Derek Theler as Mister Immortal, Jeremy Tardy as Night Thrasher, Calum Worthy as Speedball, Matthew Moy as Microbe, and Kate Comer as Debrii. The show apparently has tested extremely well internally at Marvel/Disney, and it would be a shock if it never aired.
We just have no idea where it’ll end up.
