Hulu Announces “4” New Marvel Animated Television Series

As previously reported, the Netflix collaboration with Marvel Television seems to be at an end as the shows for “Iron Fist”, “Luke Cage” and “Daredevil” have all been cancelled. You can see our posts about those happenings by clicking the highlighted text. This leaves the recently premiered second season of “The Punisher” and the upcoming third season of “Jessica Jones” the only shows left and I guess its safe to assume that they will follow the same path. Now onto the Hulu news. We recently renewed our subscription to the Hulu streaming service during a Black Friday sale where it was available for super cheap. I wanted to see Runaways and just the other day, the service announced that four brand-new Marvel Animated Series were in development. Since I couldn’t locate the exact press release from Hulu, I am re-purposing the announcement that the fine folks at Entertainment Weekly did. I’ll return at the close.

As Reported By Entertainment Week:
“Following the recent cancellations of Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil, it seems like the storied Netflix/Marvel partnership is fading out. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t going to be new Marvel TV adaptations to look forward to on streaming services. On Monday, Hulu announced a new partnership with Marvel Television that would produce four new animated shows based on obscure-but-beloved comic characters: M.O.D.O.K., Hit-Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler, and Howard the Duck. These four original shows will then culminate in the team-up special Marvel’s The Offenders.
