Marvel Studios and Disney+ are looking to tell more X-Men stories. It was announced today during the Marvel Animation panel that the second season of X-Men ’97 is officially in the works. The first season, which is a reboot of X-Men: The Animated Series, will bring back many members of X-Men: The Animated Series’ voice cast, as well as some of the creatives behind the beloved cartoon.
Producer Brad Winderbaum has previously called head writer Beau DeMayo’s pitch for the series an emotional one, noting that it honored the original series, while still moving it into the modern world. Production on X-Men ’97 has seemingly been underway since December 2021, when Lenore Zann announced that she’d already begun recording her parts as Rogue.
The first season, which will consist of 10 episodes, is expected to hit Disney+ in mid-2023.
