Netflix revealed they will not be moving forward with the second season of Jupiter’s Legacy but the world will continue with a Supercrooks live-action series.
Jupiter’s Legacy was the latest superhero show to hit the streaming service waves, but it now sounds like it was the beginning of the end. According to Deadline, Netflix will not be moving forward with the second season of Jupiter’s Legacy. However, the streamer will still be making more Millarworld projects after acquiring the label back in 2017 and announced they are developing a Supercrooks series.
Mark Millar shared on Twitter that he believes Jupiter’s Legacy could return in the future reimagined, but he now turns his attention to the Supercrooks series for Netflix. Supercrooks joins other Millarworld Netflix projects like American Jesus, Empress, Huck, Prodigy, Sharkey The Bounty Hunter, and The Magic Order.
