JUPITER'S LEGACY Star Josh Duhamel On Possible SUPER CROOKS Return And Why The Show Was Canceled (Exclusive)

JUPITER'S LEGACY Star Josh Duhamel On Possible SUPER CROOKS Return And Why The Show Was Canceled (Exclusive)

While Jupiter's Legacy was cancelled after just one season, more stories told in that world are coming to Netflix. Here, Josh Duhamel comments on that and what sounds like a difficult time making the show.

Despite being a hit in terms of viewership numbers, Netflix decided to cancel Jupiter's Legacy after a single season. Fans of the series weren't happy (especially after such a big cliffhanger ending), and neither was the cast. In what appeared to be damage control on the streamer's part, it was later said that characters from the show could return, with Super Crooks set in the same world.

That leaves the door open to some sort of crossover between the two, so when we had Josh Duhamel on the phone to discuss his role as Two-Face in Batman: The Long Halloween, Part 2 (which is set to be released on Digital on July 27 and Blu-ray on August 10), we asked the actor if he's hoping to reprise the role of The Utopian in Super Crooks or another of these Millarworld TV shows. 

"I don’t know. I don’t know what their plan is over there," he admitted. "It was a bit of a surprise. We performed really well [and] the show was #1 for three weeks around the world. I don’t know what else we could have done performance-wise, but I also understand that whenever someone new comes to a network and takes the helm, they want to make their own stamp."

"It was an expensive show and we had problems, you know. We went through, I think, three showrunners on that thing, and as a production, it was really expensive. We were able to keep the train going down the track and, ultimately, I thought it was a really good show. I was proud of it and I think the fans really loved it."

As for whether a return could be on the cards, Duhamel concluded: "I don’t know, hopefully in some capacity, I get to put on that suit again whether it be a feature film or maybe in one of these new versions of Millarworld. I had a great time and loved working with everybody and the way the show turned out. It was definitely a really difficult job, but a really, really rewarding one."

Those behind-the-scenes problems are likely what led to Jupiter's Legacy being cancelled in the first place, but it's certainly exciting to think about The Utopian making a cameo appearance in something like Super Crooks. With any luck, there will be some sort of continuation down the line, especially as Duhamel has previously revealed that the show was only ever going to run for two or three seasons, anyway.

Hopefully, we'll have a positive update to share in the not too distant future.
