Endgame might have resulted in many of Marvel’s superheroes taking a bit of a break from the screens, but Spider-Man (who’s actually under Sony right now), is still picking up steam. Aside from the recent animated movies, it also has an upcoming live action film that’s in continuity with the MCU, and there’s also the animated series from Disney XD, Marvel’s Spider-Man, which recently received an order for a new season. The new set of episodes ordered will mark the third season of the series. Disney XD plans to debut the new season in Spring 2020.
“We are excited to have Spider-Man and Venom leading this brand-new chapter. These two characters are fan favorites and the Marvel Animation team has delivered a smart, action-packed season for a new generation,” said Disney XD SVP of Programming and General Manager, Marc Buhaj. “We’re grateful for the opportunity to further expand the world of Marvel’s Spider-Man with Venom and continue fresh, heroic storytelling with this third season order.”
“This is the most epic conflict in the history of Marvel Animation,” said Cort Lane, SVP Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment. “We planted the seeds in two seasons of Marvel’s Spider-Man and three seasons of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, but you don’t need to have watched them to be blown away by this colossal confrontation. While a ton of guest heroes will be on hand, Peter Parker’s special link to Venom makes him the only hero who can tip the scales to save humanity.”
New episodes from the second season of Marvel’s Spider-Man will debut on Disney XD and DisneyNOW on September, and will kickstart things with a five-part “Superior Spider-Man” story arc. The first batch of season 2 episodes ranked as the #1 series on cable in the Monday 6:30 p.m. half-hour timeslot among Kids 6-11 and Boys 6-11.
