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

The much-anticipated live action New Warriors series from Marvel, that was supposed to air on Freeform next year…won’t be airing on the network after all, and JJJ is really worried.

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.

The trade paper reports that Freeform “could not find a slot for the show next year as it had originally intended. Marvel then asked for New Warriors back as the comic book powerhouse wants it to premiere in the new year. Freeform obliged.”

New Warriors stars This Is UsMilana Vayntrub as Squirrel Girl, Baby Daddy‘s Derek Theler as Mister Immortal, with Jeremy Tardy as Night Thrasher, Calum Worthy as Speedball, Matthew Moy as Microbe and Kate Comer as Debrii.

The show will center on six young people who are learning to cope with their abilities in a world where bad guys can be as terrifying as bad dates.
