Series creator Mark Millar says they're going to instead 'develop all realms of the Jupiter's Legacy saga'

Jupiter’s Legacy series creator Mark Millar revealed on Thursday, June 3, that they will not be moving forward with a second season of Netflix’s television adaptation of the comic book.

“Some big news from us on what’s coming up next in live-action from Millarworld, peeps,” he wrote.

In a follow-up tweet, he said that they’ll be moving forward with a different story on the villains set in the same universe called, Supercrooks, which is slated to have an anime adaptation in the future. 

The cancellation surprised viewers, as the show ended on a cliffhanger and was canceled less than a month after its release on Netflix. However, Millar said that he is confident that they’ll return to the series in the future.

Stars of the show, Anna Akana and Josh Duhamel, who played Raikou Sampson and Sheldon Sampson, respectively, have expressed disappointment with the show’s cancellation.

Akana even spoiled the fate of her character, who seemingly died during the end of the first season.

Duhamel wrote on Instagram: “When you get dumped by @netflix and have to put yourself back out there…. #sexysantasummer. What’s up, @hulu?”

The Netflix series Jupiter’s Legacy is the TV adaptation of the comic book series of the same name, centered on the transition of powers from the heroes of the old and the next generation, who struggle to live up to their expectations.

Jupiter’s Legacy is part of Netflix’s development slate after its acquisition of Millarworld, a comic publishing house founded by Mark Millar. It’s other titles include Kick-Ass, the Kingsman series, and American Jesus. – with reports from Adrian Soriano/
