Marvel's 'New Warriors' Will Not Air on Freeform As Intended

Marvel's 'New Warriors' Not Moving Forward At Freeform; Will Be Shopped Elsewhere

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Marvel and Freeform went separate ways for New Warriors after Freeform realised it would not have a slot to premiere the 10-episode comedy series - starring Milana Vayntrub as the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl alongside members of the classic comics team that's. well, probably best known at this point for helping to kick off the Civil War event by accidentally blowing up half a town - in 2018. Some sources say that we could see the show in the upcoming Disney subscription service, but that is far from official.

"We are extremely excited about Marvel's New Warriors and look forward to finding the ideal partner to launch the series with in 2018", said Dan Buckley, president of Marvel Entertainment. Marvel is hoping to get a two-season pickup wherever New Warriors lands. Marvel's New Warriors was set to debut on Freeform in 2018, but now the show is seeking a new home.

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. We won't have to suffer through that long a wait if Marvel Entertainment president Dan Buckley has his way. Fan-favorite character Squirrel Girl will be leading the group, comprising of Mister Immortal, Debrii, Microbe, Night Thrasher and Speedball. What network do you think would be a good fit for The New Warriors?

As for where New Warriors ends up now, THR reports that Marvel is limited in selling their properties to outside companies, which likely means that New Warriors will end up on a Disney-owned channel at some point. The company now has a deal with Netflix that includes several shows like Daredevil and Jessica Jones. The best best is the much talked about Disney streaming service, which is now in development to launch in 2019 and will be bringing all kinds of Disney content with it. Disney's service will include films from the libraries of Disney, Marvel, Pixar and Lucasfilm.

Freefrom is expected to debut another Marvel Television project, Cloak & Dagger, early next year.

The series follows "six young people learning to cope with their abilities in a world where bad guys can be as terrifying as bad dates".
