Fans might not know when Marvel's New Warriors will be hitting the small screen, but they can get a look at the show's ensemble together.
Derek Theler, who is set to star as Craig Hollis/Mr. Immortal in the upcoming series, recently shared a behind-the-scenes photo of the show's cast. You can check it out below.
From left to right are Theler, executive producer Kevin Biegel, Matthew Moy (Zach Smith/Microbe) Jeremy Tardy (Dwayne Taylor/Night Thrasher), Milana Vayntrub (Doreen Green/Squirrel Girl), Kate Comer (Deborah Fields/Debrii), and Calum Worthy (Robbie Baldwin/Speedball).
New Warriors has gone through an array of changes since it was first ordered to series this past April. The half-hour sitcom was set to air on Freeform (formerly ABC), who already have Marvel's Cloak and Dagger in their upcoming slate. At the time, Freeform executive vice president Karey Burke was optimistic about the show's success - and its potential for spinoffs.
“The characters they've chosen are all really singular and could each carry the show that they're on,” Burke explained back in April. “They're bound together as a band of underdogs for as long as we choose with this show, but it's conceptually tailor-made for spinoffs.”
In the months that followed, the series accumulated a writers' room, brought on their cast, and filmed their pilot episode in Atlanta. But last month, fans were disappointed to discover that Freeform wouldn't be picking up the series, and it would be finding a new home elsewhere.
With a pilot that reportedly did very well with test audiences, fans wondered where New Warriors would end up, whether it be on ABC or on Disney's upcoming streaming service. And while we still don't have an answer, this behind-the-scenes photo proves that the cast is continuing to work on New Warriors, meaning it could get a new home sooner than later.
