Jupiter’s Legacy Cancelled – Supercrooks Will Replace It On Netflix

Jupiter's Legacy cancelled Supercrooks will replace it on Netflix

Jupiter’s Legacy cancelled after just one season on Netflix. Well, Netflix are not saying it is cancelled but it’s being replaced by Supercrooks. More importantly the actors have been let out of their contracts. It’s cancelled. Though according to the report by Deadline, Supercrooks will go forward instead.

Here is what creator Mark Millar said in a statement.

“I’m really proud of what the team achieved with Jupiter’s Legacy and the amazing work everyone did on that origin season,” Millar said. “I’ve been asked a lot about what we’re planning next with this world, and the answer is to see what the supervillains are getting up to. I’ve always loved crime stories, from Scorsese to Tarantino, and supervillains are always the most fun part of any superhero story. To do something exclusively focused on the villains they fight just feels incredibly fresh as we explore what it’s like to be a bad guy in a world crawling with good guys who want to put you in jail.”

“Jupiter’s Legacy is a vast and rich space with lots of characters to mine. 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,” Millar added. “Given where we’re going next, we’ve made the tough call of letting our incredible cast out of their show commitment as we continue to thoughtfully develop all realms of the Jupiter’s Legacy saga. We’re confident we’ll return to it later and just want to say thanks to you guys for your continued support and to the cast and crew who made this look so great.”

Netflix acquired Millarworld in 2017. Jupiter’s Legacy was supposed to be the first lynch pin in Netflix’s own superhero Universe. I’m sure they had hoped it would rival that of DC and Marvel. However, the audience just has not warmed to Jupiter’s Legacy. I still find this a very odd decision to make though. Surely you double down and get a season 2 right and hope to gain some audience?

I’ve not yet checked out Jupiter’s Legacy so far, I intended to though. However now, I’m not sure whether I should bother? Supercrooks just sounds like Netflix trying to capitalize on the success of The Boys and hype of The Suicide Squad. I guess we shall see what happens?
