Marvel’s ‘New Warriors’ Ordered Straight-To-Series At Freeform

Marvel is preparing to once again expand its television universe! The television adaptation of Marvel’s New Warriors has been given a straight-to-series order at Freeform. The show will mark Marvel’s first live-action, scripted comedy series.

Freeform has ordered ten 30-minute-long episodes, which will premiere on the network in 2018. New Warriors is about a group of young individuals with powers, who work and live together to make a real difference in the world, even though their powers don’t compare to other superhero teams like The Avengers.

The series will also feature the fan-favorite superhero, Squirrel Girl a.k.a Doreen Green. The character has the powers of a Squirrel meaning she is incredibly acrobatic and has the ability to communicate with Squirrels.

New Warriors will be the second Marvel television series to premiere on Freeform. The network will also air the upcoming Cloak & Dagger series starring Aubrey Joseph and Olivia Holt.

Marvel’s head of television and series executive producer Jeph Loeb discussed the addition of the New Warriors to Freeforms scheduling. See what he had to say below!

“’Marvel’s New Warriors’ have always been fan favorites and now particularly with the addition of Squirrel Girl, they are Marvel Television favorites as well, After the amazing experience we’ve had with Freeform on ‘Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger’ we can’t think of a better place for our young heroes.”

The series doesn’t have an exact release date but will land in 2018.
