Marvel has revealed the identity of the five characters who will join Squirrel Girl in Freeform’s New Warriors TV series.
The 10-episode half-hour comedy series (this is actually Marvel’s first foray in the comedy TV game), slated to premiere sometime in 2018, will be penned and executive-produced by Kevin Biegel (Scrubs, Cougar Town). Marvel’s head of TV, Jeph Loeb, and Jim Chory (The Defenders) will also executive-produce Marvel’s New Warriors. So what is the show about?
Marvel’s New Warriors is about six young people with powers living and working together. 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 … even if the world isn’t ready. Not quite super, not yet heroes, Marvel’s New Warriors is about that time in your life when you first enter adulthood and feel like you can do everything and nothing at once – except in this world, bad guys can be as terrifying as bad dates.
Marvel has also released new artwork revealing the New Warriors lineup, which includes: Squirrel Girl, Mister Immortal, Night Thrasher, Speedball, Microbe and Debrii. All official character descriptions below come via the good folks at Marvel.
So without further ado, here are your New Warriors!
