Disney XD has cancelled Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man after four seasons. Delivering the four-season strike, the network has decided not to continue to animated series into Season 5.
Ultimate Spider-Man will end its four-season run with a two-part series finale in January 2017, after which it will be replaced by new animated series Marvel’s Spider-Man, to premiere later in 2017.
Commenting on Marvel’s Spider-Man, Marc Buhaj, senior vice president, programming and general manager for Disney XD, said:
“Spider-Man is the biggest action hero in the world. He is an iconic character whose duality makes him both relatable and aspirational for the Disney XD audience. [We’re bringing] a fresh take on a beloved classic that will engage both new and existing Spidey fans with its compelling drama, exciting action and the signature sense of comedy.”
Cort Lane, senior vice president of Marvel Animation and Family Entertainment, added:
“The simple title reflects a back-to-basics approach. It’s just filled with heart and humor.”
