Freeform, Marvel Television and ABC Signature announced their second project together, Marvel's New Warriors,
a new comedic live-action adaptation of the popular Marvel comic
featuring young adult heroes. This marks Marvel's first foray into
comedy for a television series. The network has ordered ten 30-minute
episodes slated to debut in 2018. The series will feature fan-favorite
"Squirrel Girl" (Doreen Green) as a totally empowering fan girl - tough,
optimistic and a natural leader. Doreen is confident and has the powers
of a squirrel ... She's acrobatic, can fight and talk to other
squirrels. Her most important trait is that she has faith in people and
teaches them to believe in themselves. Additional cast to be announced.
Freeform also has Marvel's Cloak & Dagger underway at the network starring Olivia Holt, but that is an hour long drama.
