Marvel’s New Warriors had so much potential – but just what happened to the comedy series starring Milana Vayntrub’s Squirrel Girl?
Has Marvel’s New Warriors show been canceled? Back in August 2016, there were reports that Marvel and ABC were developing a half-hour comedy series, centered on Doreen Green a.k.a. the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. Two years on, though, news about this series seems to have petered out, and sadly it’s increasingly looking as though New Warriors may have been quietly canceled.
Marvel Television has had something of a rough year. Although Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was renewed for both a sixth and seventh season, they’re only going to run for 13 episodes apiece. Netflix has pulled the plug on no less than three of their Marvel shows; even the flagship Marvel Netflix series, Daredevil, has been canceled. Moreover, Marvel Studios is preparing to launch their own range of big-budget limited series on the Disney Plus streaming service, which has the effect of making the existing TV shows feel like even more of an afterthought to the MCU.
