Premiere: TBD 2023
The series, officially announced on Disney+ Day on November 12 2021, will be a revival of the 90’s series, continuing the stories told over its 5 seasons. Original voice actors Cal Dodd, Lenore Zann, George Buza, Adrian Hough, Christopher Britton, Catherine Disher, Chris Potter, Alison Sealy-Smith, and Alyson Court will be returning to work on the series.
Some major news came out of San Diego Comic-Con’s Marvel Animation panel in July 2022 as Magneto was revealed to be the new leader of the X-Men in X-Men ’97. Mister Sinister is set to be the series’ main villain with Sebastian Shaw, Emma Frost, Callisto, and Val Cooper also making appearances. Cable, Bishop, Forge, and Morph will be joining the main X-Men team that is basically the same as in the original series.
A second season was also announced at SDCC 2022, even if the first season will only premiere in late 2023.
