Marvel's 'New Warriors' TV Show Leaves Freeform, Currently Seeking New Home

THR's story says Marvel is hoping to get a two-season order for the show from another outlet, with streaming services the most likely landing place.

Next year was supposed to be the year that Freeform - the youth-oriented, Disney-owned cable network formerly known as ABC Family - would make a big push into the realm of Marvel programming.

"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.

While the half-hour comedy that promises to finally bring Squirrel Girl to the screen (played by Milana Vayntrub) is now in limbo, Freeform at least agreed to let Marvel shop it elsewhere in order to get it on the air in 2018, according to the Hollywood Reporter, so hopefully there won't be much of a delay. 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.

According to the report, ABC's Freeform couldn't find a slot for it next year, so Marvel TV asked for it back as it wants to premiere the series next year.

Kevin Biegel ("Enlisted", "Cougar Town") created the series and is serving as showrunner. When Marvel realized this, they asked for the series back, as they meant to premiere it next year.

The article even suggests Marvel TV is no longer able to sell to outside companies, but Marvel TV is said to deny that.

There's bad news and good news, Squirrel Girl/New Warriors fans.

Freefrom is expected to debut another Marvel Television project, Cloak & Dagger, early next year. The series could allow for several spinoffs, similar to the Netflix deal. The show will star Marvel heroes Mister Immortal (Derek Theler), Squirrel Girl (Milana Vayntrub), Night Thrasher (Jeremy Tardy), Speedball (Calum Worth), Microbe (Matthew Moy), and Debrii (Kate Comer).
