Marvel's New Warriors Won't Air on Freeform After All

Marvel's New Warriors will move from Freeform

Sources are now telling THR that that's no longer the case, and that it's currently being shopped around to other networks.

More woes for Marvel TV as it's learned their New Warriors TV series originally meant to air on the ABC Freeform teen network is now seeking a new home.

Marvel's highly anticipated take on New Warriors is on the move. Disney's streaming service is being eyed to launch in late 2019, which could also eliminate that as a destination unless the platform is jump-started early as Marvel is keen on the show airing in 2018. The best best is the much talked about Disney streaming service, which is now in development to launch in 2019 and will be bringing all kinds of Disney content with it.

There's bad news and good news, Squirrel Girl/New Warriors fans.

Nationals set to make Dave Martinez next manager
The ballclub is expected to tap Chicago Cubs bench coach Dave Martinez to take the reigns after parting ways with Dusty Baker . The two were together with the Cubs for the past three seasons, including that team's 2016 World Series championship.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Freeform could not find a scheduled slot for this show. It's also plausible that Marvel will forge a partnership with a streaming service or network that doesn't have a Marvel series of their own yet (a la Amazon), in order to continue expanding its reach and bring New Warriors to the small screen in the process.

Kevin Biegel ("Enlisted", "Cougar Town") created the series and is serving as showrunner.

Usually, when you hear about a television show looking for a new home it is on the verge of cancellation. The 10-episode series stars Milana Vayntrub as Squirrel Girl, Derek Theler as Mister Immortal, Jeremy Tardy as Night Thrasher, Calum Worthy as Speedball, Matthew Moy as Microbe and Kate Comer as Debrii.

New Warriors is about six young people learning to cope with their abilities in a world where bad guys can be as terrifying as bad dates. With Marvel's Inhumans not expected to last beyond a single season and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. similarly expected to wrap up after its fifth season (which premieres this December), ABC may soon find itself without a Marvel TV show to call its own.
