Starring Josh Duhamel, Leslie Bibb and Ben Daniels, Jupiter's Legacy landed on Netflix in May as the first TV show from the streamers deal with Mark Millar. Naturally, expectations were high with the ambitious series, but those expectations were not met at Netflix as the show has been (technically) cancelled after one season.
After almost a century of keeping the world safe, the first generation of superheroes readies their children to take their place as Earth's defenders. In an epic story that spans decades, secrets of the past and troubles in the present collide with destructive consequences. While we won't be seeing any more of the characters established in the first season, there will be more from Jupiter's Legacy Saga with an adaptation of Millar's Supercrooks. Speaking about the new series, here's what Millar had to say;
“I’ve been asked a lot about what we’re planning next with this world, and the answer is to see what the super-villains are getting up to. Jupiter’s Legacy is a vast and rich space with lots of characters to mine, and so I’m happy to share that our next step here is a live-action version of the Supercrooks comic I created with Leinil Francis Yu a few years back.”
Taking to social media series star Josh Duhamel didn't hold back from sharing his disappointment over the abrupt cancellation with his followers.
“It’s never easy to hear that a project you cared about/ believed in/ put so much into is ending prematurely. It was a challenge and a privilege to dive into the character of Sheldon/ Utopian. I got to do things as an actor that took me to places I had never been. A big thank you to @netflix for giving us this opportunity and an even bigger thank you to the fans – you took us to the #1 spot around the world and we stayed there for almost 2 weeks. Your support of the show means everything."
There are currently no details on when to expect Supercrooks, but according to Deadline, the series budget won't be anywhere near the reported $200 million price tag for Jupiter's Legacy.
