2020 has been a pretty surprising one for Marvel fans, as it has been the first year in over a decade without any new Marvel Cinematic Universe movies or Disney+ television shows. Even then, there still have been bits and pieces of new Marvel content -- including the fan-favorite documentary series Marvel's Storyboards. Season 2 of Marvel's Storyboards officially debuted on Marvel's YouTube channel and Marvel.com on Monday, continuing to highlight various storytellers with ties to the Marvel universe. The nonfiction series follows Joe Quesada, EVP, Creative Director of Marvel Entertainment, as he explores the origin stories and inspirations of storytellers of all mediums, backgrounds, and experiences at their favorite spots throughout New York City and beyond.

“Looking at the show and the reception we saw for season one, we were humbled by how our guests’ stories were resonating and inspiring fans. We are all so grateful to these incredible talents for sharing their journeys with all of us,” Quesada said in a statement. “The mission of Marvel’s Storyboards has been to show that we are all storytellers, and no matter how we express it, those stories have a way of connecting us and lifting all of our spirits in challenging times, regardless of the medium. Marvel’s Storyboards season two takes that notion even further into the world of sports, music, media, and entertainment, and we can’t wait for you all to experience these stories yourselves!”
