Marvel's NEW WARRIORS Comedy Will Not Air on Freeform

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.

When last we heard, Marvel's The New Warriors TV adaptation (featuring Milana Vayntrub as Squirrel Girl) would be airing on Disney's Freeform network - a network aimed at the demographic they call "becomers" (basically 18-25 year-olds). Marvel's New Warriors was set to debut on Freeform in 2018, but now the show is seeking a new home.

The pilot for the series reportedly tested through the roof, with Disney executives getting very excited about the project. Freeform, however, couldn't find a slot for it in 2018 as it had originally intended. However, that service isn't set to launch until 2019, and Marvel is eager to get New Warriors to air sooner rather than later.

Sources tell THR that Marvel, which is owned by Disney, can't sell to outside competitors. Marvel then asked for New Warriors back as the comic book powerhouse wants it to premiere in the new year.

Key options include other streaming services (Marvel's Runaways is about to launch on Hulu), and of course the Disney-owned ABC already has some Marvel series in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Inhumans, but it's not clear which course the show will take yet.

Despite not moving forward with New Warriors, Freeform remains in business with Marvel Studios, with Cloak & Dagger still on track to launch in 2018. If true, that would seemingly limit the potential new homes for New Warriors. Production is rumored to resume in January should the show find a quick new home. New Warriors hails from Marvel Television and ABC Studios' cable arm ABC Signature. With powers and abilities on the opposite end of the spectrum of The Avengers, the New Warriors want to make a difference in the world... Cougar Town vet Kevin Biegel serves as showrunner.
