The Marvel television that we have known for the past decade (yes, the same one that gave us the INHUMANS lol) is unfortunately shutting down.
This automatically leaves people to wonder what will happen to the upcoming four announced animated series headed over to Hulu, the upcoming HELSTROM as well as the last season of AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. will still be made. Everything will be folded into Marvel Studios.
“The decision has been made to complete Marvel TV projects that are currently in production, but not continue with any further development,” noted the TV division Tuesday. Layoffs are expected with the change in status for the once burgeoning small screen team, but not definite positions have been identified at present for the chop.
Things have been one blow after another for Marvel television. From the cancellation of the Marvel Shows at Netflix (DAREDEVIL, JESSICA JONES, LUKE CAGE, IRON FIST, THE PUNISHER), the scrapping of GHOST RIDER and the cancellations of CLOAK AND DAGGER as well as the recent announcement of the end of RUNAWAYS. The writing was seemingly already on the walls and everything has finally played out the way it should.
With the set of Marvel Studios original shows set to hit Disney plus soon it is going to be interesting to see what happens.
When Gabriel Luna as Robbie Reyes walked into another dimension during the last episode of the “Ghost Rider” portion of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D many of us were left wondering if we would see the rider ever again. Now our questions have been answered and this time he is getting his own series on Hulu. Luna is set to reprise his role as Robbie Reyes as well.
Hulu announced that new Ghost Rider and Helstrom series are both in the works as part of its growing partnership with Marvel Television, with both shows set to premiere in 2020.
Helstrom, will focus on Daimon and Ana Helstrom, the son and daughter of “a mysterious and powerful serial killer,” who track down “the terrorizing worst of humanity.” For those familiar with the comics, Daimon Hellstrom, a.k.a. Hellstorm, is the literal son of Satan, so its not 100% certain that this series will follow along those lines.
The heroes that fight the battles in the MCU that we do not know about will be returning for a 7th season. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D has just been renewed for its 7th season. This announcement comes just six months after it was announced that the show would be returning for its sixth season.
Many people believed that the sixth would be the final season given that the main character in Phil Coulson (played by Clark Gregg) had died in a sense but potentially not. The universe of comic book tv shows always tend to offer a twist.
The series stars Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie and Natalia Cordova-Buckley as Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez.
