Marvel Television To Cease All Future Production As It Officially Folds Into Marvel Studios

Marvel Television To Cease All Future Production As It Officially Folds Into Marvel Studios

The writing was on the wall after several TV shows such as Runaways and Cloak and Dagger were cancelled, and now it's been made official: Marvel Television will fold into Marvel Studios under Kevin Feige.

Marvel Television as we've known it for the past 10 years is no more, as The TV arm of Marvel Entertainment is being folded into Marvel Studios under the supervision of Kevin Feige.

Although Hulu's upcoming animated shows (Tigra and Dazzler has been put on hold) and the live-action Helstrom will reportedly remain on course, they will be the final projects to come from the current unit overseen by Jeph Loeb and no further development is expected to take place. Loeb will stay on during the transition, but "at least a dozen" layoffs are expected in the near future.

Marvel TV's senior VP of current programming and production Karim Zreik will join the Marvel Studios group and continue to oversee current projects.

This news won't come as much of a surprise to anyone after the cancellations of several Marvel shows over the past few months. Most recently, we found out that Cloak and Dagger and Runaways had been axed. And, of course, Netflix's popular Marvel projects are no more.

Marvel's flagship series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., will present its seventh and final season in 2020.
