Marvel TV Is Shutting Down Production Folding Into Marvel Studios

Adjust Comment Print

With its slate dwindling over the past year and its head Jeph Loeb set to depart, the television-focused Marvel division will be phased out.

It's kind of fitting that Marvel TV will end its divisive era with the final season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. A leading news portal broke the news to the Marvel fans, and the current series in the production include a set of four animated shows and a live-action show. These projects will continue, developed by Marvel TV, and even Loeb will remain involved until the transition is complete, but it is expected that there will be "at least a dozen" of layoffs in the near future, as Marvel TV will not develop any other new projects.

"The decision has been made to complete Marvel TV projects that are now in production, but not continue with any further development", noted the TV division Tuesday.

The Marvel TV projects that are now in production will move forward, but any further development is being abandoned.

On the animation side, Marvel Television has five shows in development for Hulu (Howard the Duck, Hit Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler, M.O.D.O.K., and The Offenders) and one for Disney Junior (Marvel's Spidey and His Amazing Friends).

Marvel Television is officially shutting down.

In October 2019, Feige was promoted to Marvel's Chief Creative Officer, which places parts of Marvel Entertainment like the comics publishing arm and Marvel Television under his management. At least on non-Disney+ streaming and TV stations.

Because of these TV shows, some people now at Marvel Television will be retaining their jobs following their move to Marvel Studios. Aside from the three previously mentioned series, Marvel has other shows featuring characters who've had little screen time in Marvel's previous films. The studio is now filming the series in New Orleans, showcasing Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and his new journey as Marvel's next Captain America. Time will tell just how concerning that kind of decision-making could be.
