Freeform Will Not Air Marvel's New Warriors; Looking for New Home

Adjust Comment Print

The half-hour scripted comedy is now being shopped to other networks, putting Marvel in a bit of a bind.

Marvel's New Warriors, the first half-hour comedy from Marvel Studios, will not be moving forward at the teen-oriented basic cable network - despite receiving a 10-episode order back in April.

Marvel Entertainment president Dan Buckley said: "We are extremely excited about Marvel's New Warriors and look forward to finding the flawless partner to launch the series with in 2018". Marvel made a decision to ask for the series back since they want the 10-episode comedy to air in the new year, with Freeform obliging.

According to an individual with knowledge of the situation, the project will also not move to Disney's in-the-works streaming service as has been reported by other media outlets.

"We are extremely excited about Marvel's "New Warriors" and look forward to finding the ideal partner to launch the series with in 2018", Dan Buckley, president of Marvel Entertainment, tells the Reporter. The series was created by Kevin Biegel.

Last week, Carlson said the Podesta brothers were "central figures" in the federal investigation. Manafort was, among other things, indicted on charges of conspiring against the United States.

According to THR, the series, which "tested through the roof and caught the attention of high-level Disney executives", doesn't have a network to call home. When Marvel, also owned by Disney, asked to shop the show around, Freeform gave them the green light. Production is rumored to resume in January should the show find a quick new home. The series could allow for several spinoffs, similar to the Netflix deal.

Marvel has denied reports that it is no longer able to sell to outside companies.

Now, while Cloak and Dagger is still set to arrive on Freeform next year, New Warriors is looking for a new home.

"New Warriors centers on six young heroes:learning to cope with their abilities in a world where bad guys can be as terrifying as bad dates". Joining Vayntrub and Theler are Jeremy Tardy as Night Thrasher, Calum Worthy as Speedball, Matthew Moy as Microbe and Kate Comer as Debrii.
