Marvel TV Shows Ranked from Worst to Best

Updated December 3, 2021

Disney+’s new MCU-tied streaming series are the latest threat to the rankings of all Marvel TV shows. How do the comic book giant’s television properties currently stack up?

Hawkeye, Marvel’s Hit Monkey, and Marvel’s Helstrom all joined our list of Marvel series by Tomatometer. The streamer’s third original MCU offering, Loki, initially knocked Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. from the top spot on our ranking after the Tom Hiddleston–led series’ premiere episode. The series has since taken a small tumble, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is back at No. 1 despite hefty competition from the first Disney+ series WandaVision and Daredevil, the highest-scoring Netflix-Marvel collaboration.

We’ve included titles that have at least 10 reviews, and ties were resolved by the number of reviews for each title and further by the “Average Rating” under “Score Details” in cases where two series have the same score and the same number of reviews.

Check back regularly as new Marvel titles like upcoming series Secret Invasion debut.

Disagree with the results? Tell us in the comments which series you think should have scored higher (or lower) with critics.

Recently added: Hawkeye, Marvel’s Helstrom, and Marvel’s Hit Monkey.

Want to know if your favorite television series is among the latest cancelled TV shows? Bookmark this page to learn about Netflix cancelled shows, when network series get the axe, and which cable TV limited series are being reworked as anthologies to squeeze every single drop of fan love out of them.

How it works: Renewals are obvious: new season = yay! When a network or streaming service announces that they’re not making another season of a show, however, we count that as cancelled (or “canceled” if you spell it without SEO considerations). Sure, some shows “come to a natural end,” but someone somewhere said “enough,” and to avoid endless discussions about whether a title was “cancelled” or “retired” — “Daredevil and Empire were cancelled, but Game of Thrones died peacefully of old age!” — we’re going with the one designation. Feel free to debate specific titles in the comments if you wish. But first, learn which series will live on, which have been resurrected — which is happening more and more frequently — and which have reached their expiration date.


HBO has announced a third season of its trippy fantasy series, His Dark Materials. However, fans of this adaptation of author Phillip Pullman’s work should note that this will be the last chapter in the series. The story focuses on Dafne Keen’s Lyra, an extremely brave young woman who happens to be from another world. Other cast members for the second season include Ruth Wilson, Amir Wilson, Ariyon Bakare, Andrew Scott, Will Keen, Ruta Gedmintas and Lin-Manuel Miranda. The show has a cumulative 80% Tomatometer for its first two seasons.


Buckle up, folks. Because HBO Max has cleared a second season of The Flight Attendant for takeoff. The psychological thriller stars Kaley Cuoco as Cassie Bowden, a globe-trotting flight attendant and party girl who gets an unwelcome surprise when she wakes up after a black-out night in a foreign country: The man she’d flirted with on the flight over (Michiel Huisman) is lying dead next to her. Now Cassie must solve the case before the feds — or the killer — find her. The first season is Certified Fresh with a 98% Tomatometer.


Brush off those lab coats. Peacock has renewed comedy A.P. Bio for a fourth season. The comedy, which aired on NBC for its first two seasons, stars Glenn Howerton as a former Harvard professor now relegated to teach high school biology (and make his students do his bidding). Other faculty members include Patton Oswalt as Principal Ralph Durbin and Paula Pell as his secretary, Helen Henry Demarcus. The first three seasons have a cumulative 88% Tomatometer.


Hulu has canceled the gritty horror/superhero series Marvel’s Helstrom after one season. The show, which has a 27% Tomatometer score, starred Tom Austen and Sydney Lemmon as Daimon and Ana Helstrom — the children of a serial killer who are also on the hunt for horrible people.

With all the new channels and streaming services out there, you would think series could just keep going and going and going. Even in this era of Peak TV, however, all good shows must come to an end. Fortunately, there are plenty of other shows to take their place.

We’ve put together a list of shows we’re saying goodbye to in 2020. This year will see the end of 13 Reasons Why, The 100, Arrow, Bojack Horseman, How to Get Away with Murder, Supernatural, and more, but they’ll leave room for you to discover more teen dramas, animated comedies, superhero series, and other shows we think you’ll love.

Check in with our 2020 Finale Dates Calendar to find out when these shows conclude this year, and add these new titles to your streaming queues or DVRs so you’ll never miss a moment of great television.

Is your favorite TV show ending this year? Head to the comments and tell us what you recommend to replace it.

Scandal, streaming, and a continuing plethora of reboots and revivals — some of the most memorable events in TV land in 2019 involved several of those things. Here, to help get viewers excited about the year ahead, we take a month-by-month look back at TV and streaming’s recent past.


JANUARY

#METOO MAKES WAVES

With Julie Chen having left her job as a co-host of The Talk on CBS (after husband Les Moonves was bounced out of his job as chairman at the network following a #MeToo-related investigation), Dancing With the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba became a new Talk co-host … In other #MeToo TV news, Neil deGrasse Tyson, host of StarTalk on National Geographic Channel, saw his show put on hiatus while the cable network investigated sexual harassment claims against him. In March, NGC announced their investigation was complete, and new episodes of StarTalk resumed airing in April … In the aftermath of Lifetime’s docuseries Surviving R. Kelly, which detailed the long history of sexual abuse allegations against the R&B superstar, RCA Records, Kelly’s label, dropped him from their roster … In other Kelly news, Megyn Kelly (no relation) exited NBC News and received the entire amount remaining on her $69 million contract on her way out … The Punisher series finale (but we didn’t know it yet – see February) streamed on Netflix … Fox aired Rent Live, though the majority of the broadcast was pre-recorded footage after cast member Brennin Hunt broke his foot during rehearsals the day before the special … The producers of Family Guy, which turned 20 in January 2019, decided to stop targeting the LGBT community in jokes on the Emmy-winning series … Brooklyn Nine-Nine kicked off its sixth season on NBC after being canceled by Fox …  The Sopranos turned 20 … Bob Costas exited NBC Sports after nearly four decades … CBS’s daytime soap The Bold and the Beautiful aired its 8,000th episode … Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt ended its four-season run on Netflix.


FEBRUARY

PUNISHER AND JESSICA JONES CANCELED

Netflix announced in mid-month that season 2 of Marvel’s The Punisher, which launched in January, would be its last, and that Jessica Jones’ upcoming third season would end that series, as well. The cancellations came after the streaming giant canceled  Marvel series Daredevil, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage in what came to be known around the office as “Marvel’s The Purge,” as in, Marvel was cutting ties with Netflix while Disney ramped up plans for Marvel characters on its streaming service, Disney+. At the time, Variety reported that Marvel’s deal with Netflix prevented any of its shows’ characters from appearing in non-Netflix properties for two years following cancellation … Maroon 5 performed at halftime and the New England Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in Super Bowl LIII at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta … The Oscars aired without a host for the first time since 1989, after comedian Kevin Hart quit the job after controversy erupted over homophobic tweets he had posted previously … T-Pain, costumed as Monster, was the first winner of The Masked Singer The Simpsons was renewed for two seasons (31 and 32), meaning it will become the first scripted series to run for 700 episodes … The dramedy Russian Doll premiered on Netflix and went on to earn Emmy nominations as Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for star Natasha Lyonne … Netflix also released the series adaptation of the superhero comic book The Umbrella Academy, which drew 45 million households to watch the first season during its first month of release.


MARCH

A MONTH OF LAW AND DISORDER


HBO aired Leaving Neverland, during which Wade Robson and James Safechuck alleged Michael Jackson sexually abused them when they were children. The controversial documentary, the network’s third most-watched documentary in a decade, sparked backlash from Jackson’s fans and prompted producers of The Simpsons to pull from circulation a 1991 episode of the animated series – “Stark Raving Dad” – that featured Jackson as a guest star … Cops turned 30 … Full House star Lori Loughlin and Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman were arrested and charged with crimes related to a nationwide college entrance cheating scandal … Charges were dropped against Empire star Jussie Smollett, who had been accused of filing a false police report about an alleged hate crime attack in January. Chicago officials said the charges were dropped after Smollett agreed to perform community service and forfeit a $10,000 bond … Gayle King won stellar reviews for keeping her cool and forging ahead with a CBS This Morning interview with R. Kelly, even as the singer, charged with sexual crimes and dealing with dwindling finances, stood up from his chair and began loudly yelling at her and the camera … Project Runway, which moved to Lifetime after debuting on Bravo, moved back to Bravo for its 17th season … Broad City aired its series finale after five seasons on Comedy Central … Jeopardy host Alex Trebek announced he had been diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer.


APRIL

GAME OF THRONES FINAL SEASON STARTS STRONG, BUT ENDS SERIES WITH A WHIMPER


Game of Thrones cranked up its six-episode final season, launching with “Winterfell,” which scored 92% on the Tomatometer. By the end of its run, however, the season score would be Rotten (it is currently almost Fresh at 59%) after a three-episode flame-out. Outraged fans speculated that series showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were too eager to move on to their Star Wars feature film trilogy — since abandoned — and negotiating their Netflix deal that was announced later (see August) to give the final season their full attention … Disney+ announces launch date, MCU show titles (Loki, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Hawkeye), and price … Crazy Ex-Girlfriend aired its series finale after four seasons on The CW … Kathie Lee Gifford quit her job as co-host of NBC’s Today with Kathie Lee and Hoda, while Sara Gilbert announced she would be leaving her job as co-host on The Talk – a series she created – to focus on other work, like her starring role on The ConnersGotham ended its five-season run on Fox … CBS All Access debuted a Jordan Peele-created remake of The Twilight Zone … The FX/FXX dramedy You’re the Worst aired its series finale after five seasons.


MAY

BYE BYE, VEEP, BIG BANG, AND MORE 


Multiple Emmy-winning comedy Veep ended its seven-season run on HBO, while the network also said goodbye to Game of Thrones in a series finale that was the most-watched telecast in the network’s history with 13.61 million viewers … After 12 seasons, The Big Bang Theory aired its series finale, in which Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler won a Nobel Prize … CBS All Access releases a first look at Star Trek: Picard, which reunites Patrick Stewart with his fan-favorite role as Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation and feature films … Adam Levine leaves The Voice …  Into the Badlands ended its three-season run on AMC … Last Call with Carson Daly ended its 18-season run on NBC … The PBS Kids animated series Arthur began its 22nd season with an episode in which teacher Nigel Rathburn married his boyfriend, Patrick.

JUNE

ZENDAYA SCORES WITH EUPHORIA


HBO premiered the intense teen drama Euphoria, which drew criticism from the Parents Television Council because of its graphic depiction of teen drug use and sex (including, infamously, a scene in which many penises were seen onscreen). The show earned particularly strong critical praise for star Zendaya, and was renewed for a second season … The fallout from Game of Thrones’ final season continued with actress Lena Headey, who played Cersei in the series, speaking out about her character’s fate: “Obviously you dream of your death,” she told The Guardian. “You could go in any way on that show. So I was kind of gutted. But I just think they couldn’t have pleased everyone. No matter what they did, I think there was going to be some big comedown from the climb” … James Holzhauer was nicknamed “Jeopardy James” for his 33-game winning streak on the game show, which, when it ended on June 3, had amassed $2,464,216 for him.

JULY

WARNERMEDIA ANNOUNCES HBO MAX


In July, WarnerMedia fired a warning shot in announcing the name of its upcoming direct-to-consumer streaming service: “HBO Max.” (Visions of Game of Thrones on steroids danced through our heads.) The service, due in spring 2020, also announced a dizzying lineup that includes classics like Friends, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and Pretty Little Liars; new Warner Bros.’ produced dramas for The CW, including Batwoman and Katy Keene; the entire contents of HBO’s originals library; original series, including director Denis Villeneuve’s Dune: The Sisterhood, Ansel Elgort−starring Tokyo Vice, thriller The Flight Attendant from star Kaley Cuoco and Greg Berlanti, romantic comedy anthology series Love Life from star Anna Kendrick and Paul Feig, an animated Gremlins series, and more; new films developed in production deals with the likes of Berlanti and Reese Witherspoon; and so much more … Amazon released the first season of The Boys, its superhero drama adapted from the comic book of the same name.

AUGUST

GAME OF THRONES CREATORS GET PAID!


So what that not everyone thought they stuck the landing with the Game of Thrones finale; series creators David Benioff and D.B.

SEPTEMBER

FLEABAGGAME OF THRONES TOP EMMYS

Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, becomes the chief creative officer at Marvel overall, with oversight of all of their film, television, and publishing endeavors. Word leaks that Marvel TV Executive Vice President Jeph Loeb will announce his departure soon, a move that reportedly was in the works prior to Feige’s promotion. The news follows a general trend established when Marvel Studios, not Marvel Television, announced it would make limited run series with its MCU Avengers for the Disney+ service. Loeb was responsible for the company’s Netflix series (Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, etc.), ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., FX’s LegionRunaways on Hulu, and more … Netflix debuted El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, the much-anticipated Breaking Bad follow-up that told the story of what happened to Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) after the events of the BB series finale … The streaming war heats up, as Disney+ tweets out 500-plus images for titles that will be included in the service’s November 12 launch.

NOVEMBER

“BABY YODA” LIGHTS UP THE INTERNET


Star Wars fans go bananas for the creature they call “Baby Yoda.” The tiny Yoda lookalike, officially known as “The Child,” is the big spoiler in the premiere of the newly-launched Disney+ streaming service’s series The Mandalorian, which stars Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) in the title role. The Child won fans over with his soup-sipping, frog-guzzling, fuzzy green cuteness, only for those viewers to be very disappointed (and start a bootleg merch industry on Etsy) when they learned Disney had purposefully not planned Baby Yoda plush toys and other official swag to be available for the holidays. Shop Disney eventually came through with T-shirts, mugs, and other items that could be delivered in time for Christmas giving … Love for Baby Yoda helped drive more good news for Disney+; the streaming service signed up more than 10 million subscribers in one day … Apple TV+ launches with, among other series, The Morning Show, a morning TV–based #MeToo-themed drama from showrunner Kerry Ehrin, starring Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, and Steve Carell … After its initial batch of series launched the service, Apple TV+ also releases Servant, a psychological thriller from executive producer M.

The Lord of the Rings series in development for Amazon Prime loses a lead when Will Poulter (Black Mirror: Bandersnatch) reportedly drops out because of scheduling conflicts.

Several other classic TV series will also see new homes in 2020 and beyond – including The Office, The Big Bang Theory, Seinfeld, and South Park – as competing streaming services rely on the archived series to lure subscribers … Harrison Ford signed on to star in his first TV series, a scripted adaptation of the Netflix docuseries The StaircaseNetflix announced 26 million homes had watched awards season favorite The Irishman in its first week of release on the streaming service … The merger between CBS Corporation and Viacom closes, with the new company now known as ViacomCBS … The Simpsons turned 30 … Emmy-winning Silicon Valley ended its six-season run on HBO … Live feeds and other PBS programming became available on YouTube … Saturday Night Live alum Eddie Murphy returned to host the variety series for the first time in 35 years, and earned the series’ best ratings in 11 years … Epix announced it would produce a 10-episode adaptation of Stephen King’s Jerusalem’s Lot, starring Adrien BrodyMadam Secretary ended after six seasons on CBS … Michael Chabon announced his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Kavalier and Clay would finally be adapted as a TV series, for Showtime … Responding to backlash from the conservative group One Million Moms, the Hallmark Channel bans ads featuring two brides kissing, but a boycott from LGBT supporters prompts the network to reinstate the commercials from wedding planning website Zola … The Chevrolet Suburban SUV becomes the first car to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, after appearing in more than 1,750 TV shows and movies since 1956 … Lear and Kimmel produce a second Live in Front of a Studio Audience episode, this time with all-star casts re-enacting live versions of episodes of All in the Family and Good Times … You moves to Netflix, from Lifetime, for its second season … America’s Funniest Home Videos turns 30 … Mr. Robot concludes after four seasons on USA.

Bookmark this page to learn about Netflix cancelled shows, when network series get the axe, and which cable TV limited series are being reworked as anthologies to squeeze every single drop of fan love out of them.

How it works: Renewals are obvious: new season = yay! When a network or streaming service announces that they’re not making another season of a show, however, we count that as cancelled (or “canceled” if you spell it without SEO considerations). Sure, some shows “come to a natural end,” but someone somewhere said “enough,” and to avoid endless discussions about whether a title was “cancelled” or “retired” — “Daredevil was cancelled and Empire is cancelled, but Game of Thrones died peacefully of old age!” — we’re going with the one designation. Feel free to debate specific titles in the comments if you wish, but first, learn which series will live on, which have been resurrected — which is happening more and more frequently — and which have reached their expiration date.



Another renewal ahead of a debut: Apple TV+ has renewed M. Night Shyamalan’s Servant for a second season, Shyamalan revealed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Lauren Ambrose, Toby Kebbell, Rupert Grint, and Nell Tiger Free star in the psychological thriller, which follows a Philadelphia couple in mourning after an unspeakable tragedy creates a rift in their marriage and opens the door for a mysterious force to enter their home. The series joins Apple Originals Dickinson, For All MankindSee, and The Morning Show, which received second-season orders.

Amazon has renewed The Lord of the Rings for season 2, while season 1 is still early in pre-production in New Zealand, Deadline reported. Season 1 will have a break in filming so that the writers room can reassemble to write season 2 scripts, which may allow simultaneous or back-to-back filming of seasons 1 and 2. The series is expected in 2021.

Marvel’s Runaways is the latest series developed under Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb to get the axe. Loeb is expected to announce his exit before the Thanksgiving holiday, according to The Hollywood Reporter. All 1o episodes of the young superhero series’ third season will drop on Hulu on December 13.


It’s official: The Mandalorian season 2 is underway. Earlier this year, series creator Jon Favreau revealed that he was working on season 2 scripts, but, as any film or TV writer can tell you, a script does not equal a green light. In a post on Instagram, Favreau sent “Greetings from the set of #TheMandalorian season 2,” which is enough proof for us.



Leave it to magical monster hunter Geralt of Rivia to find a way to return before he’s even arrived. Netflix has renewed fantasy series The Witcher for season 2 ahead of its premiere. Henry Cavill stars as the titular adventurer in the series that launches on December 20. The series, based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s Witcher novels and short stories, also stars Freya Allan as Ciri and Anya Chalotra as Yennefer. Lauren Schmidt Hissrich (Daredevil) is showrunner on the title, which will likely find an audience with gamers thanks to CD Projekt Red’s enormously popular and critically-acclaimed video game series based on the character.

Over the course of the past two weeks, a monumental change in the way Marvel Entertainment handles its creative endeavors took place. On the ground, it may appear like a humdrum shift of executives, but its effects will be far reaching. The change? Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, is now the chief creative officer at Marvel overall. This means he has the final say in all of their film, television, and publishing endeavors. At the moment, it appears the change will not drastically upset the day-to-day business of Marvel Comics, but the news almost immediately changed things at Marvel Television, the unit of Marvel Entertainment run by Jeph Loeb.

Loeb has been the executive vice president of Marvel Television since 2010, making him the ultimate authority on programs like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and animated offerings like the current Spider-Man and the Marvel Rising series. He also shepherded Marvel efforts in the streaming sphere with the Netflix series like Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage and Runaways on Hulu and served as an executive producer on FX’s Legion.


RELATED: Kevin Feige’s Oral History of the Marvel Cinematic Universe


But shortly after Feige was announced as the new CCO, word broke of Loeb’s planned departure from the company, a move that reportedly was in the works prior to Feige’s new appointment. The news follows a general trend established when Marvel Studios, not Marvel Television, announced it would make limited run series with its MCU Avengers for the Disney+ service.

For fans of characters like the Scarlet Witch and Hawkeye, there is nothing but good news here. Fans of Marvel Television, however, have found their favorite shows disappearing in a snap. So let’s take a look at the potential ramifications of Loeb’s departure and what it means for Marvel Television.


Marvel Television May Cease To Be a Distinct Unit

As we often like to mention when discussing Marvel, the names of their divisions matter in the scope of the Walt Disney Company overall. And in this case, the distinction is the primary issue. Marvel Studios is a division of the Walt Disney Studio while Marvel Television is a unit of Marvel Entertainment, which operates as a separate entity from the Studio in the Walt Disney family of companies. This was not always the case, though. In 2015, Feige initiated Marvel Studios’ transfer to the Walt Disney Studio, reportedly to escape the control of Marvel Chairman Isaac Perlmutter. His effort was successful, but it changed a key element of Marvel Television’s strategy: the notion that Marvel’s TV shows would be connected to the films. After Marvel Studios left Marvel Entertainment, those connections generally amounted to namechecks in Marvel Television series with zero reciprocity on the studio side until James D’Arcy’s cameo in Avengers: Endgame as Agent Carter’s Edwin Jarvis.

But beyond this creative divide was the sense that the studio and Marvel Television were far more separate than anyone was really willing to admit. Although, this separation was made crystal clear last May when Loeb himself told Rotten Tomatoes and various other reporters that creative decisions for the sixth and seven seasons of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. had to be made without the knowledge of Endgame’s five-year jump in time.

“We had to go without knowing where they were going,” he said. “Otherwise, we’d be living in a world that was brilliantly shown in Endgame.”

This lack of communication will disappear with Feige now in charge of Marvel Television — although, it is currently unclear if Marvel Television will remain its own branded unit. Thanks to the Disney+ limited series, Marvel Studios built up its own television production unit which may make Marvel Television entirely redundant. Also, considering the unfortunate amount of cancellations in Marvel Television’s column over the last year — including Cloak & Dagger, which Freeform finally canceled last Friday — the unit may just be dissolved entirely.

Although, it is also possible Marvel Studios will use the name and some of the people in the unit. Presumably, its successful children’s animation initiatives will continue on with minimal changes, in much the same way Marvel Comics will continue with its current leadership. And though it means some good people will most likely lose their jobs, at least everything will finally be connected.


The Disney+ Programs May Supplant The Existing Marvel Television Universe

As we mentioned earlier, the evident disconnect between shows like Runaways and the feature films will disappear in this new era of Marvel content. Feige (pictured above with Marvel star Scarlett Johansson) himself said as much when he discussed the studio’s Disney+ plan at August’s D23 Expo while announcing four new series set to join their calendar: Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, Hawkeye, and She-Hulk.

These additional Disney+ announcements read like a list of dream projects lifted directly from Loeb’s desk. Moon Knight was often rumored to be part of a second wave of Netflix content from Marvel Television, while She-Hulk and the Kate Bishop version of Hawkeye both neatly fit the description of a female-led series the division was reportedly developing for ABC as a companion to S.H.I.E.L.D. Also, all of these characters feel a part of the unacknowledged Marvel Television universe. Well, that is to say Moon Knight would make a splash as the first truly costumed character in The Defender’s Manhattan while Ms. Marvel’s Kamala Khan and She-Hulk’s Jennifer Walters would fit right into the brighter, poppier Marvel world of S.H.I.E.L.D.

But considering these are all Marvel Studios production, we can’t help but think they will chart their own course and ignore events established on S.H.I.E.L.D. or Daredevil. And with Loeb gone, no one will feel particularly inclined to advocate for the established Marvel Television programs or their histories. Additionally, Marvel Studios will not be able to develop television projects based on any of the characters from the Netflix shows for another 18 months (at the earliest), suggesting they may start from scratch when Luke Cage and the Punisher become available to them. The Marvel TV universe, as we’ve known it since S.H.I.E.L.D.’s debut in 2013, may experience a very permanent blip of its own.

Although, that Edwin Jarvis cameo in Endgame is one positive sign that all may not be lost. But even if, say, Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph play Cloak & Dagger’s Tandy and Tyrone again in a Marvel Studios show, don’t expect them to reference the events of their recently canceled series.


Helstrom and The Offenders Animated Programs May Not Go Forward

Even before word of Loeb’s departure broke, there was the sense Marvel Television was already winding down. During the summer, he happily proclaimed a new “Adventure Into Fear” initiative on Hulu. The plan featured new live-action series, anchored by a planned Ghost Rider program, which would delve into Marvel Comic’s horror titles in a mode incompatible with Disney+ family friendly edict. Gabriel Luna, who played the Robbie Reyes version of Ghost Rider on S.H.I.E.L.D., was set to reprise his role. Plans were also afoot for Helstrom, a series based on Marvel’s Damion Helstom – a.k.a. the Son of Satan.

Additionally, Hulu and Marvel Television were in process of developing four animated series based on concepts as wild as Hit-Monkey (a literal monkey turned hit-man), and M.O.D.O.K. — the Mobile Organism Designed Only for Killing. Said to appeal to adult animation fans, the programs would culminate in a one-hour special cheekily called The Offenders.

Then Hulu passed on Ghost Rider just as rumors surfaced indicating Marvel Studios had its own interest in the character.

At the present, it appears the “Adventure Into Fear” initiative is dead, although Helstrom is going forward with a cast including Tom Austen, Sydney Lemmon, and Elizabeth Marvel. According to a Marvel press release, the series will debut on Hulu sometime in 2020. But without Loeb, it seems unlikely the Marvel Studios version of Marvel Television will continue the “Adventure Into Fear” when it has its own plans for horror with Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.

Also, it is unclear if The Offenders programs will still go forward. Thanks to the long lead times needed for animation, it is possible at least one or two of the series will make to production and stream on Hulu. But it is also possible the whole thing will be scrapped.

This Hulu uncertainty also extends to Runaways. Though a constant success for the streamer, it is unknown if the program will return after its third season launches on December 13.


The Erasure of Marvel’s Inhumans

But if there’s one (admittedly silly) good thing to come from Loeb’s departure, it is the potential elimination of Marvel’s Inhumans from the MCU. Once meant to be a feature film in Marvel Studio’s Phase 3, the project was allegedly part of Perlmutter’s hopes to downplay the importance of the X-Men by recasting the Inhuman concept as the MCU answer to mutants. But once Marvel Studios became a Disney Studios division, Inhumans kept getting pushed farther into the distance.

Eventually, Marvel Television took it on and the results were — well, 11% on the Tomatometer really says it all. Despite good actors like Anson Mount, exquisite location shooting in Hawaii, and a willingness to put a giant teleporting bulldog on screen, the show was shockingly generic. Its plot ended with the Inhuman royal family and their subjects moving to Hawaii and preparing for an ancient, unseen enemy. Thanos may have been the implied threat, but it seems Feige was the foe they were really bracing for.

Rumors indicate Marvel Studios is looking to recast the Inhuman royal family for the Ms. Marvel series. The character is an Inhuman and interacts with the Inhuman royal family on a number of occasions. She also ends up taking care of that teleporting bulldog for a time. If the rumors are true, it likely means this one series is definitely out of MCU continuity.

And for all the good Loeb did at Marvel Television — we did get two seasons of Agent Carter, three seasons of Legion, seven of S.H.I.E.L.D., and shows dedicated to Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, after all — we won’t mind if this one element of his tenure slips quietly away into dust.

Loeb’s formal announcement is expected before Thanksgiving with his departure occurring by the end of the year, giving him a full decade at Marvel, Deadline reported. In addition to his executive producer role on the Marvel titles mentioned previously, the titles he oversaw included The Punisher, The Defenders, Iron Fist, and The Gifted. Loeb previously had been a producer and writer on NBC’s Heroes and The CW’s Smallville, was a supervising producer on ABC’s Lost, and co-wrote 1985 film Teen Wolf, starring Michael J. Fox.

Fall 2019 TV Survey: Favorite Netflix Shows

For Rotten Tomatoes’ annual Fall TV Survey, we asked thousands of our users what they’re most looking forward to in the coming TV season and to reflect on the best shows from seasons past.

Stranger Things again dominated the top spot across all demographic age groups and both sexes when we asked Rotten Tomatoes fans, “Which Netflix original series is your favorite?”

What we didn’t expect to see was a Mindhunter leaping from No. 13 in 2018 to No. 3 in 2019 or the major motion among the canceled Marvel titles: The Punisher moved from 21 to No. 6 over the course of the year, The Defenders moved from No. 25 to No. 13, and  Luke Cage moved from No. 24 to No. 10 — we’re noting a pattern. Even Iron Fist showed up for this party, landing at No. 23.

The vote disparity between males and females for the list was, again, worth noting. Marvel’s Daredevil took second place overall again, but didn’t appear in the top five for women, receiving only 14% vote from women overall. Mindhunter, meanwhile, was No. 2 among women, followed by The Crown, Orange Is the New Black, and Black Mirror. Newcomer Lucifer, meanwhile was No. 6 among women, but 16th overall.

We allowed survey participants to vote for multiple titles — read on to find out which came out on top overall.

It’s the most wonderful — and stressful! — time of year for TV fans: fall TV season, a.k.a. “try to keep track of all the new shows you want to see until you hopelessly fall behind and just watch Friends again” season.

We kid, but know that we feel you: It’s overwhelming! In less than two months, more than 50 shows and TV movies have debuted already. From NBC’s Lost-esque missing-plane drama Manifest to CBS’ latest classic reboot (Magnum P.I.) and philosophical afterlife comedies (The Good Place season 3 and Forever) to critically acclaimed animation for adults (BoJack Horseman and Big Mouth), there is abundant programming to choose from.

That’s why Rotten Tomatoes has created this list ranking every fall TV premiere for 2018 by Tomatometer (both new and returning shows, along with TV and streaming movies that did not get a big-screen release).

We’ll continue updating the scorecard for the rest of the year, registering every new season and TV or streaming movie (starting September 1) that got at least 10 critic reviews. (So if you’re wondering why your favorite isn’t on here, it likely just didn’t have enough season reviews to make it.)

Final Update (12/21): With Fall officially over, our Fall TV Scorecard is officially done. The final update saw the addition of the new Australian Netflix series Tidelands, Certified Fresh Amazon miniseries Vanity Fair, and the second season of Hulu’s Runaways.

Drumroll please: The top spot on the 2018 Rotten Tomatoes Fall TV Scorecard goes to The Good Place. For the second year in a row, the latest Certified Fresh season of NBC’s morality comedy landed in first place with a 100% score, beating out the seven other series or streaming movies with the same score (two of which were also Certified Fresh) thanks to the number of reviews it received.

Also of note: While Amazon’s Certified Fresh Homecoming has a 98% score, its Adjusted Tomatometer score, which takes into account the number of reviews that make up the final score, would push it ahead of The Good Place to take the No. 1 spot.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: While the show's likable cast has potential, poor attempts at cultural commentary and weak characterizations leave The Neighborhood stuck in a creative dead end.

#95
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite its promising pedigree, I Feel Bad simply isn't very funny.

Heathers: Season 1 (2018)
27%

#94
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite promising performers, Heathers' aspirational angst is let down by its blunt, misguided attempts at social commentary.

#93
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Overcrowded, overwrought, and overly familiar, New Amsterdam plays more like an exquisite corpse of pre-existing shows than a breakthrough for the genre -- though that may be enough for medical drama devotees.

Camping: Season 1 (2018)
27%

#92
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The first season of Camping makes it difficult to determine who the least happy campers are: those on the screen or those watching it.


Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: This just in: while the nostalgia and wit are welcome, Murphy Brown's dated messaging tactics feel heavy-handed and smug, leaving this formerly formidably timely series feeling like a reboot reaching for the headlines.
Starring:

Rel: Season 1 (2018)
44%

#89
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Rel has a talented star supported by a solid ensemble, but none of it's enough to disguise an ordinary sitcom that hits a series of generic beats.

The Purge: Season 1 (2018)
42%

#88
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Bloated and boring, The Purge kills its own fleetingly fun premise and proves that not all stories work better on the small screen.

#87
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Matthew Weiner's return to television is as handsomely made as it is ambitious and sprawling -- unfortunately, it's also fatally indulgent, asking for the utmost patience from audiences without a compelling incentive.
Directed By: Semi Chellas

#86
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite a pair of likable leads, The Good Cop's reliance on procedural cliches sucks out much of the fun -- though those looking for an easy watch may find comfort in its familiarity.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite a decent ensemble and a few intriguing elements, A MillIon Little Things breaks under the weight of its own emotionally lofty ambitions.

#84
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite an enticing cast and promising premise, Tell Me a Story's overly plotted, grim take on Grimm's Fairy Tales fails to enchant.

#83
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The rebooted Magnum P.I. may not be quite distinctive enough to hold up to comparisons with its source material, but a charismatic star, slickly staged action, and a handful of modern twists hint at greater potential.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Better action scenes and tighter pacing elevate Iron Fist's second season, but it remains a lesser light among MCU shows.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Last Man Standing isn't the most realistic sitcom on the dial, but its idealistic representation of opposites living in harmony offers sorely needed hope during divided times.

Manifest: Season 1 (2018)
56%

#80
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Manifest's attempts to balance supernatural mystery and melodrama largely work thanks to its well-chosen cast -- though it could use a few more distinguishing characteristics.

FBI: Season 1 (2018)
63%

#79
Adjusted Score: -1%

She’s back! Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning comedy The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is returning to Amazon for its second season on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

Season 2 will see Midge (Rachel Brosnahan) dealing with the fallout from her takedown of Sophie Lennon, making her climb up the comedy ladder even more challenging — especially since she’s still keeping her new career as a standup comedian a secret from her family.

Recently added (updated 12/3): History Remembers George H.W. Bush (Dec. 5), Mysterious Islands (Dec. 26), Great Performances: The Bernstein Centennial Celebration (Dec. 28)

When Rotten Tomatoes asked users about their television viewing habits in our Fall TV Survey, we got intel on how much TV they watch, how they watch it, and other details. We also asked them one very important question: Marvel or DC?

In the battle of the comic book titans, the percentage of RT users who prefer Marvel’s shows just barely edged out the diplomatic among you (a.k.a. the ones who prefer both). Interestingly, the number of users who prefer DC to Marvel is far lower. The RT user breakdown is 31.54% Marvel, 31.39% both, 26.63% neither, and just 10.44% DC.

Among Marvel viewers, the most popular show for RT users is also the No. 1-ranked show on the Tomatometer (which means the critics agree!): Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., with 19.85% of users saying it’s their favorite. Marvel’s Daredevil is next, with 14.56% of RT users saying it’s their favorite, followed by Marvel’s Jessica Jones with 11.43%, Legion with 8.10%, and Marvel’s The Punisher with 6.16%. Marvel’s Iron Fist comes in last among RT users (with 0.88% saying it’s their favorite) and on the Tomatometer (with a 37%, followed only by the one-season series Marvel’s Inhumans).

Daredevil also ranks second among RT users’ favorite Netflix series (with 6.24% of users saying it’s their favorite, behind Stranger Things).

On the DC side, 11.64% of RT users said The Flash is their favorite, and 11.16% say they like Gotham best. Interestingly, while Black Lightning is in the top 3 DC shows by Tomatometer (with a 98% score, and a Certified Fresh first season), it comes in second-to-last among RT users’ favorites (with only 3.26% saying it’s their favorite). Krypton comes in second-to-last on the Tomatometer (with a 59% score, followed only by the one-season sitcom Powerless), and last among RT users’ faves (with 1.30% of respondents calling it their favorite).

Gender affected the Marvel vs. DC results by just a few percentage points, but in key ways: more women preferred neither (33.56%), then both (31.39%), then Marvel (24.77%), and finally DC (10.28%). Among male respondents, 34.49% prefer Marvel, 34.03% prefer both, 20.14% prefer neither, and 11.35% prefer DC.

For DC fans, the top show among women was Lucifer (10.76%), then Gotham (9.26%), then The Flash (7.48%). For men, it was The Flash (16.39%), then Gotham (13.67%), then Preacher (9.45%). For Marvel fans, the top show among women was S.H.I.E.L.D. (19.27%), then Jessica Jones (13.61%), then Daredevil (6.89%). For men, it was S.H.I.E.L.D. (24.87%), Daredevil (19.43%), and Legion (9.02%).

In the last few weeks, Netflix pulled a Thanos-level move by cancelling Marvel’s Iron Fist and Marvel’s Luke Cage on successive Fridays. The major reduction in Marvel Television shows by the streaming service is a far cry from the hope and optimism the two companies shared when they first announced plans to attempt an Avengers-style trick on television. In the beginning, the plan was to produce four television shows and bring them together in a fifth show called Marvel’s The Defenders. The plan took a little bit longer than anyone expected — Marvel’s Daredevil pulled off a second season before the first year of Iron Fist could be mounted — but it did come to fruition as an eight-episode series worthy of a Certified Fresh 77% rating on the Tomatometer and an Audience Score of 75%.

And yet, somewhere along the way, the plan still derailed. After The Defenders debuted, various members of cast and crew referred to it as a miniseries. Marvel’s Jessica Jones star Krysten Ritter said she was told it was always intended to be a one-off thing.

Then the ax came for Iron Fist and Luke Cage. The former felt inevitable; the show’s second season received the greatest season-over-season gain in Tomatometer history, but it still left the show with a 55% score and the series at an embarrassing 37% overall. Luke Cage‘s cancellation was more of a surprise with a generally well-received second season (a Certified Fresh 83%) to its credit and a writers’ room working on scripts for a third season.

So what went wrong? Why has Netflix seemingly cooled off on its relationship with Marvel Entertainment? And what could it mean for the remaining shows. Also, is there still hope for Luke Cage and Iron Fist? Let’s take a look at what we know.


The Uncertainty of Netflix

While Netflix never offers concrete viewership numbers, social media engagement is often a good indicator of a Netflix Original Series’ success. Fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 took to Twitter and other platforms to convince the service to greenlight a 12th season and the social media reaction to Sense8’s cancellation led to a wrap-up film.

As it happens, the engagement on Luke Cage and Iron Fist fell sharply after their debut seasons. Which is a real shock considering Luke Cage reportedly taxed Netflix’s servers into a shutdown when the first season became available in October 2016. Again, it is still unclear if that engagement directly correlates to raw viewership, but it is an indication that both shows simply failed to capture the imaginations of Netflix subscribers.

Or, ultimately, the shows were not as appealing as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Marvel’s The Punisher, which would be necessar to justify their existence. And considering the way the companies ramped up the release schedule — Iron Fist season 2 and Daredevil season 3 debuted just over a month apart — it may just have been too much to support. Flooding the market with product is a trademark Marvel move longtime readers of the comics will recognize, but there may have been other factors involved.


The End of the Partnership

Quality may not have been an issue at all. Netflix changed its posture when The Walt Disney Company announced its plans to launch its own streaming service in 2019,  around the time the company’s long-term licensing deal with Netflix expires. All the Disney-owned content, which includes the Marvel Studios films, Star Wars movies, and Disney’s animated offerings like Coco, will vanish from Netflix sometime next year and, presumably, populate Disney as-yet-unnamed platform. (Also read: “7 Ways TV and Streaming Fans Win With the Disney-Fox Deal.”)

Specific details on the service are still cloudy, but reports indicate much of its film and television library will end up on the platform before too long. The actual rollout will likely follow the pattern DC Universe is employing to stagger its library with material cycling in and out at a regular interval.

No matter Disney’s plans, though, it will be a major rival to Netflix before too long and many suspect the end of Luke Cage and Iron Fist relates directly to this eventual competition between the streaming service and Marvel’s parent company. When Disney first announced its platform in 2017, Netflix content chief Ted Sarandos said the Marvel brand is “not that exclusive,” before adding “Netflix has The Defenders.” Up until Iron Fist‘s demise, the company repeatedly confirmed the shows were staying put. Although, just before Daredevil‘s debut last week, Sarandos said, “Those shows are for us to cancel, and we’re super happy with their performance so far.” Before Luke Cage was cancelled, the statement seemed hopeful. Now, there is a certain ominous tone to the phrase “for us to cancel.”

In the case of Luke Cage, the situation may have been more interpersonal as a reported dispute regarding the length of the third season appears to have led to Netflix’s seemingly abrupt cancellation of that season. Additionally, creative differences about the scripts themselves may have led to the quick decision. But with the relationship between Marvel and Netflix changing, cancelling a program they do not own outright instead of fighting a creative battle must have looked appealing in the moment. Presumably that lack of ownership will come into play when both parties consider the remaining shows.


A “Heroes for Hire” Future

While Marvel’s long-term future at Netflix may be coming to an end, the situation may not be apocalyptic. Some have noted that none of the stars or top-line creatives involved in Iron Fist or Luke Cage have rushed out to find new work. Granted, in the case of Luke Cage, the situation changed dramatically one week ago, and we may see those talents dispersing into new opportunities. But for the moment, let’s assume Marvel Entertainment has assured them of some sort of future.

Then there’s the wording of Marvel and Netflix’s joint statement regarding Iron Fist, in which both companies said, “While the series on Netflix has ended, the immortal Iron Fist will live on.” The sentence immediately led many to speculate the show may have a future on one of Disney streaming services. While the upcoming Disney platform might seem like the natural outlet, the company’s majority control of Hulu may see it become a venue for revived Luke Cage and Iron Fist shows. Reportedly, Hulu will play home to Disney and 20th Century Fox’s more adult-friendly fare, while the Disney-branded service offers content for general audiences. And considering Hulu is already the home of Marvel’s Runaways and the streaming home of Freeform’s Cloak & Dagger, the grittier Marvel shows will not be out of place there.


Of course, it is unclear what form such a Hulu revival would take. Plenty of people want both shows to contort into a Heroes for Hire or Daughters of the Dragon series. Some would even like both. As Luke Cage’s Misty Knight (Simone Missick) and Iron Fist’s Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) were breakout characters and very appealing elements of Iron Fist’s second season, focusing on them in a Daughters of the Dragon series makes a certain sense. As Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker told us in June, people were already asking for Daughters of the Dragon while the second season was in development.

Then again, both Iron Fist and Luke Cage ended their second season on cliffhangers worthy of resolution.

It would be interesting to see a Heroes for Hire series begin with both Luke and Danny exiled from New York for reasons left unexplained, but related to where their shows left off. And if we are being greedy, a Daughters of the Dragon series could see Colleen and Misty setting their own path.

Meanwhile, Marvel Studios contributes its planned limited series on the Disney-branded service. It almost sounds ideal to keep the Marvel Studios product on Disney while odder shows like Luke Cage and Runaways take root at Hulu.


The Future for the Remaining Shows

While the news of recent weeks is sad, particularly for fans of Luke Cage and Iron Fist, the relationship between Netflix and Marvel will continue into the short term. Daredevil just debuted its third season, and it might be the best season of any of the Defenders-related programs (though its 92% on the Tomatometer is still down 7% from the series’ season 1 height).

A third year of Jessica Jones and a second season of The Punisher are also in various stages of production, meaning the latter two will return to Netflix for at least one more season. Daredevil is, at the moment, a question mark. As executive producer and showrunner Erik Oleson recently told us, he “can’t talk about the future,” but is nevertheless hopeful the quality of the work will merit continuing the series. As the flagship program, its future will be the bellwether of the Marvel shows beyond 2019.

Jessica Jones, meanwhile, may be heading toward a natural conclusion on its own. Just as work began on the new season, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg announced her departure from the series following the third year for an overall production deal at Warner Bros. Television. It is a major creative change that could be recognized in the story, with Jessica (Ritter) and Trish (Rachael Taylor) getting more closure on Netflix than Danny of Luke. Or, at the very least, the final episode of Rosenberg’s run could be reworked into something more definitive.

As Oleson told us, producing a season of a Marvel show is not unlike writing a “run of the comic,” with the understanding that someone else will always be along to tell more stories with the characters. Rosenberg may have guided the show to an end point that Netflix will use to justify its cancellation. The Punisher, sitting at a 66% on the Tomatometer, may have the wisdom to give Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) a worthwhile send-off, while leaving a bit of hope for a Hulu resurrection.

And should all of the shows leave Netflix for Hulu or the same cancellation bin shared by Marvel’s Agent Carter and Marvel’s Inhumans, Netflix will be fine for comic-book content as it looks to a future with programs like The Umbrella Academy and content emerging from Millarworld, the comic-book company the service bought in August 2017. Plans are already in place to develop films based on creator Mark Millar’s Empress and Huck and series from his Jupiter’s Legacy and American Jesus comics. Another Millarworld project, Sharkey The Bounty Hunter, is being developed as a film and comic book concurrently.


You Can’t Always Get What You Want…

But with just about every Marvel cancellation, there comes the sadness that story-lines will not be resolved. The small, but dedicated fanbase of Agent Carter is still infatuated with star Hayley Atwell and hopes for resolution regarding Jack Thompson (Chad Michael Murray), just as many Luke Cage viewers hope to see how Luke deals with running Harlem’s Paradise. While Marvel Television President Jeph Loeb could not be reached for comment, his previous statement about Agent Carter probably applies here as well: “Find us a network.” All he needs is a platform to carry to series and he will bring it back. To him, the shows Marvel put into production are strong enough to go the 100-episode distance. While it is doubtful he will ever orchestrate the return of Inhumans, Heroes for Hire devotees should remain hopeful.

The fact is, Marvel never lets an idea die. Luke and Danny’s popularity in comics also waxes and wanes over the decades, but they are always poised to make a comeback with good creative people at the helm. And even if neither show was strong enough on its own, the interest in the team-ups both shows teased could be enough to give the shows another life. It is just a matter of when and how.

The first season of Marvel’s Iron Fist didn’t go quite right. It earned a 19% on the Tomatometer and is notable for being the least creatively successful of the initial four Marvel television programs on Netflix. Daredevil fared much better with a Certified Fresh 99%, while Jessica Jones and Luke Cage debuted with respective Certified Fresh scores of 93% and 94%.

The series, starring Finn Jones as Danny Rand, a Manhattan-born scion of an industrialist family who learns the secrets of the Immortal Iron Fist while stranded in an inter-dimensional Far East city, had a number of things going against it. Jones was cast late and the production had little money or time to train him (or anyone else) for the fight scenes. And, let’s face it, a show called Iron Fist needs to have great fight scenes. On the emotional front, characters often varied wildly from episode to episode – particularly Danny, who went from Zen master to little boy at lightning speed – while the first season’s story line bore the responsibility of establishing The Hand’s more mystical elements ahead of Marvel’s The Defenders and its own ongoing Iron Fist elements like Danny’s relationship with Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) and the travails of the Meachum family.

But over a year later, Iron Fist is back with a second season, new executive producer Raven Metzer at the helm, and a seemingly stronger sense of direction. The critical response so far has been much better – a 38% improvement over the inaugural season. Nonetheless, it is understandable if you may have some misgivings about giving the show a second chance. Maybe the following five aspects of the new season will compel you to try the first handful of episodes.


1. The Fights Look Better

From its opening moments, in which Danny takes on some armored truck thieves representing one of the gangs hoping to replace The Hand, Iron Fist’s second season makes the fight scenes a priority. Behind the scenes, the production hired stunt coordinator Clayton Barber to revamp the style and tone of the program’s martial arts action. A veteran of productions like HBO’s Fahrenheit 451 and Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, Barber said he was hoping to create a “punk rock kung fu song” with the fights, focusing on tempo and rhythm. The Chinese restaurant fight later in the first season 2 episode underscores this approach.

Barber also worked with the actors so they could do substantially more of their own stunts this time. Jones, for example, began stunt training four months ahead of the production and took an additional five months getting into shape. While stunt doubles were still employed for some shots, Barber said, “the cast was up to the task, and we got a really good result.”

In fact, the series was confident enough in its fight scenes to show five of them during the program’s panel presentation at Comic-Con International: San Diego back in July. While the armored car battle, and portions of the Chinese restaurant brawl and the K’un-Lun fights have appeared in clips and preview material since, a glimpse of fight scene between Colleen, Misty Knight (Simone Missick), and Typhoid Mary (Alice Eve) also revealed just how much had changed on the series, with Misty, in particular, facing some of the most visceral action yet.

Again, a show called Iron Fist needs to have great fight scenes, and the fights revealed so far definitely have some energy to them.


2. A Clearer Direction For Danny

Where the first season saw Danny wavering between his duty as the Iron Fist and his wish to reintegrate into his old life, the second year sees him solider on with a renewed purpose following The Hand’s defeat in The Defenders, honoring the “dying” wish of Matt Murdoch (Charlie Cox) and defending his city. This sees Danny refusing to use his fortune – another issue he wavered on in the first year – and roaming the streets at night to stop a brewing gang war to see which outfit will replace The Hand.

According to Jones, Danny is taking his mission “very seriously” even as he continues to grow as a normal, functioning adult.

“He’s also moved in with his girlfriend, Colleen, so he’s coming of age, and he’s trying to balance all those things,” Jones said. Not that balancing those things is easy, especially as Danny is “enjoying himself — maybe a little bit too much.”

Nonetheless, the clearer presentation of Danny makes for a lead protagonist viewers may find more appealing.


3. Davos Makes a Better Antagonist

Season 1’s mixture of Harold Meachum (David Wenham) and various Hand operatives like Madame Gao (Wai Ching Ho) and Colleen’s mentor Bakuto (Ramon Rodriguez) – to say nothing of Ward Meachum’s (Tom Pelphry) journey – left the show unfocused in terms of the antagonists. But season 2 offers a much stronger opponent for Danny in the form of his K’un-Lun friend Davos (Sacha Dhawan), known to comic book fans as Steel Serpent. Appalled by Danny’s choices – and his apparent failure to protect K’un-Lun from The Hand – Davos was more than ready to ally with anyone opposed to Danny in the first season’s final moments.

Ultimately, the thing turning Davos from friend to foe, however, is his unwavering belief that he should be the Immortal Iron Fist. It is the key issue in that K’un-Lun fight we’ve seen in preview clips, which will be seen in full in the new season’s second episode, and it leads him toward an ability which could shake Danny’s hold on the Iron Fist.

And if you recall the end of first season, he’s also likely in league with Joy Meachum (Jessica Stroup).

The nature of their bond makes Davos a much stronger antagonist for Danny. In season 1, The Hand was something of a theoretical opponent for Danny based in little more than stories told about them in K’un-Lun. Even Harold Meachum, despite his connection to The Hand and his direct involvement in the plane crash which killed Danny’s parents and left him stranded, never made the fight truly personal. Davos, a person who is essentially Danny’s brother, makes the conflict much more palpable for the title character. It also makes the fight more difficult as Danny would still have empathy for him versus the more black-and-white way he looked at The Hand.

A stronger conflict, like one between brothers, can only aid the series overall.


4. Deepening Characters

And like Danny and Davos, all the surviving characters appear to have more care and attention given to them. Colleen, for example, faces an internal conflict about staying in the fight following the events of The Defenders.

As Henwick told Rotten Tomatoes back in July, “Colleen’s like a bunch of contradictions. She says she doesn’t want to fight, but as you see she’s still fighting … She doesn’t want to live this life, being a vigilante, but she’s still dating a vigilante, so it’s kind of inevitable that you get pulled into all this drama that’s happening in Chinatown.”

Ward, meanwhile, continues his journey into — well, whatever Ward ends up being. His strange arc in season 1 was one of the highlights — even if he’s a character viewers love to hate — and the start of season 2 see him enjoying a little hedonistic backslide even as he tries to get help for his myriad issues. As for Joy, it seems pretty clear where she’s headed thanks to her new alliances. From the jump, she seems poised for simple revenge, but that motivation becomes less clear as things move forward. And considering her comic book counterpart’s character arc, Joy may end up in a very different place by the end.

One new character joining the series is Typhoid Mary. Played by Alice Eve, the classic Daredevil comic book villain joins Davos’ scheme to undo Danny. Mary’s various personalities may feel differently about this after a few episodes, however. A sufferer of Dissociative Identity Disorder, she invents personalities to protect the vulnerable person Danny first meets in a key scene of the second season’s debut episode. Her other personas, however, are definitely itching for a fight.

With one new key character and a number of returning characters needing no introduction, the opportunity to turn some them (yes, even Ward) into fan favorites is certainly possible.


5. The Daughters of the Dragon Debut — Sort Of

It is no secret that Misty Knight is coming downtown for Iron Fist’s second season, but as Missick told us in July, her story line will not be a full debut of the Colleen/Misty team-up known as the Daughters of the Dragon.

“I don’t think the fans are going to get to see them in the way that they hope, that peak, but I think it is a nice change,” she explained at the time.

Nonetheless, the pair will be featured in at least two fights across the season and though Misty has her own police-related reasons for visiting the neighborhood, she will offer Colleen the same emotional kick-in-the-pants Colleen offered her early in Luke Cage’s second season.

Of course, their time together will still inspire fans to demand a Daughters of the Dragon series all their own. As Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker mentioned to us back in June, people were already asking him for that series based on a short clip from their team-up on Cage.

“I think that they bring out a side to each other that you don’t get to see otherwise,” Henwick said of the duo during Comic-Con. “They have the same sense of humor, and they’re badass — what’s not to love?”

Considering the way fans have embraced the characters, this may be reason enough to watch Iron Fist‘s second season. Or, at the very least, try a handful of episodes.

Marvel’s Iron Fist season 2 is now streaming on Netflix.

This weekend at the movies, we have a cloistered demon (The Nun, starring Taissa Farmiga and Demian Bechir), one super ticked off widow (Peppermint, starring Jennifer Garner), and a country song come to life (God Bless the Broken Road, starring Lindsay Pulsipher and Makenzie Moss). What are the critics saying?


The Nun (2018) 24%

Taking something ostensibly safe, trustworthy, or benign and turning it sinister is one of the oldest and most effective tricks in the horror movie playbook. The suburbs, babies, grandparents — they’ve all been twisted in genre cinema’s chilly grasp, and given the deep-seated emotions many people have regarding religion, it’s no surprise that its tenets and imagery have long ranked among filmmakers’ favorite nightmare fuel. With this weekend’s The Nun, producer James Wan expands his burgeoning Conjuring cinematic universe by giving the demon Valak, one of The Conjuring 2‘s scarier creatures, her own standalone feature — and explaining the backstory of the wimpled menace along the way. Of course, as horror fans are all too aware, it’s often what we can’t see, don’t know, and don’t understand that proves scariest; go back to one boogeyman too often, and its effectiveness can rapidly diminish. According to the critics, that’s exactly what’s happened with The Nun, which hurls a series of jump scares at the audience in order to try and cover up for a slow and familiar story. We’ve seen Conjuring spinoff franchises struggle out of the gate before, so here’s hoping if there’s a follow-up, the reviews are kinder; overall, this is still one of the better mainstream horror series going, and it’d be a real shame if it made a (cough) habit of earning disappointing Tomatometers.


Peppermint (2018) 13%

As the star of the long-running hit series Alias, Jennifer Garner proved herself more than capable of playing a believable action hero — but when she started cracking skulls on the big screen in Daredevil and its spinoff Elektra, the results were less than spectacular. More than a decade after the latter film crashed and burned in theaters, Garner’s got a shot at genre redemption with Peppermint, in which she plays a woman who nearly dies in an attack that kills her husband and daughter — and after emerging from a yearlong coma, dedicates herself to exacting revenge on the people responsible. Sadly, critics say she needn’t have bothered; while Garner remains a charismatic screen presence, and more than a few reviews have given her credit for her clear commitment to the role, it still doesn’t add up to much besides reheated Death Wish, with all the borderline irresponsible fearmongering that goes with the territory. If you’re seriously in the mood to watch some bad guys get thunked this weekend, Peppermint might do the trick — but then again, you could also just watch a better-made vigilante thriller instead.


God Bless the Broken Road (2018) 17%

While one wide release uses religious iconography to give filmgoers the willies this weekend, God Bless the Broken Road takes an altogether different faith-based direction. Helmed by God’s Not Dead director Harold Cronk, this drama — which takes its title from Marcus Hummon’s oft-covered country single — adapts the Jennifer Dornbush novel of the same name to tell the story of a single mom (Lindsay Pulsipher) struggling to put her life back together after her husband is killed in action during a tour of duty with the U.S. Army in Afghanistan. When her nine-year-old daughter (Makenzie Moss) befriends a racecar driver (Andrew Walker), love starts to bloom… only to be threatened by our grieving protagonist’s fear of losing another beau to a dangerous vocation. You pretty much know where this is all heading, which is a big part of why the target demographic responds to it — and why critics tend to turn up their noses at it. We’ve still only seen a handful of reviews for Broken Road, but early returns suggest this will be yet another earnest, religion-tinged drama that hits a hard dead end with the pundits. If it’s in your wheelhouse, odds are that won’t make much of a difference.

Marvel's Iron Fist 37%Marvel - The Defenders 78% | Marvel's Luke Cage: Season 2 (2018) 85% (Netflix)


What it is: Set in New York City, Iron Fist is the story of Danny Rand, a presumed-dead heir to a billion-dollar fortune who returns to New York City 15 years after a fatal plane crash kills his parents (and many believed him). He brings with him a skill set that includes unexplained kung-fu superpowers.

Why you should watch it: While Iron Fist was admittedly not as well received as its Marvel-on-Netflix counterparts, if you’re a fan of the universe, it’s definitely worth tuning in to orient yourself in the world of Marvel’s The Defenders, which also includes Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), and Luke Cage (Mike Colter), who also recently had a second season in which Danny Rand appears. We recommend at least binging Iron Fist season 1 and The Defenders before the former’s September 7 season 2 premiere. Here’s hoping Danny Rand’s new solo outing learned from its missteps the first round.

Commitment: Approx. 48 hours for the three seasons


The Deuce 93% (HBO)


What it is: From creator David Simon (The Wire), The Deuce deep dives into 1970s Times Square — more specifically, the men and women dabbling in sex work to make a living. It’s a true ensemble piece, but Maggie Gyllenhaal stars as a prostitute named Candy and James Franco stars as identical twin brothers Vincent and Frankie Martino.

Why you should watch it: By transporting us to a gritty world of sex, drugs, and an American Dream that’s foreign to most audiences today, The Deuce further proves Simon’s talent for creating series that are absolutely singular and authentic. Plus with talent  like Gyllenhaal and Franco attached, it certainly ranks within prestige TV’s must-watch club. Season 2 premieres September 9.

Commitment: Approx. 8.5 hours


Shameless 82% (Showtime)


What it is: This comedy series has been around for so long that it’s hard to define it without giving away eight seasons of spoilers. But at its core, it’s an hour-long dysfunctional family comedy-drama about six children (led by Emmy Rossum as Fiona) who were forced to grow up too fast while under the watch of their single, alcoholic father, Frank (William H. Macy).

Why you should watch it: It’s tricky to strike the balance between broad comedy and aching drama, but it’s a skill that Shameless has perfected since its 2011 debut. Credit where it’s due: Rossum is an absolutely fearless knockout who bests herself season to season. (Soak up this performance while you can — Rossum recently indicated on Facebook that this season might be her last.) It’s an excellent ensemble, and you can’t help but love the Gallagher family (even when they don’t make it easy), but watching the actress and Oscar-nominee Macy go toe-to-toe as the central headstrong daughter and father just gets better with age. Season 9 premieres Sept. 9.

American Horror Story 77% (FX)


What it is: You don’t have to watch every season of American Horror Story to catch up for season 8, but as the series’ first crossover season — this time of Murder House (season 1) and Coven (season 3) —  we’d recommend binging those and piecing together just how these witches may be caught up with the spawn of Satan and more.

Why you should watch it: Now going for eight seasons strong and a favorite of critics and audiences alike, this anthological series never ceases to spook. And with returning favorites like Jessica Lange (who won two Emmys for her work on previous seasons) and Ryan Murphy mainstay Sarah Paulson, among many others (Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, and Emma Roberts), Apocalypse is shaping up to be its best outing yet.

BoJack Horseman 93% (Netflix)


What it is: BoJack Horseman (voiced by Will Arnett) was once the hottest horse in town, star of a hit sitcom and riding high in Tinseltown. Fast-forward 20 years, though, and he’s a depressive has-been — and our titular protagonist of this hit Netflix comedy.

Why you should watch it: It’s not often that an alcoholic horse and a fictionalized Hollywood full of as many flawed humans as talking animals teaches you about yourself, but this one does — trust us! While it’s an acquired taste for any viewer, there’s reason BoJack’s blend of pitch-black humor and weighty human circumstance has gained such a cult following over the last four seasons. Catch up before season 5 premieres September 15.

9-1-1 81% (Fox)


What it is: 9-1-1 was a hit from the start. By humanizing members of New York City’s police and fire department as they go above the call of duty in larger-than-life circumstances — all while grappling with their own personal dramas on the home front — the series has earned its spot as one of last year’s strongest newcomers.

Why you should watch it: There’s no doubt that television has been attracting some top-tier talent to the small screen over the last few years, and a series like 9-1-1 — with an ensemble including Angela Bassett, Connie Britton, and Peter Krause paired with a producer like Ryan Murphy — is that trend seen at its very best. Fun, over-the-top escapism abounds in this drama series, but never at the expense of its heart.

Young Sheldon (CBS)


What it is: We all know that The Big Bang Theory’s Sheldon has a one-of-a-kind genius mind, but did you ever wonder just what he was like as a kid? Young Sheldon answers that question and then some while charting the nine-year-old boy-genius’s life.

Why you should watch it: Young Sheldon provides something that we haven’t seen before: a reinterpretation of a beloved multi-camera sitcom character as a single-camera, family-friendly, and heartwarming dramedy. Better yet, because this is a prologue series to Jim Parson’s Sheldon, our protagonist’s mother, Mary, is played by Zoe Perry, the real-life daughter of Laurie Metcalf, who stars as the same character on The Big Bang Theory! It’s a small-screen first. Season 2 premieres September 24.

The Gifted 79% (Fox)


What it is: Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker star in this Marvel series as seemingly normal husband and wife Reed and Kate Strucker who, upon discovering their children’s mutant abilities, take them on the run from those who fear mutants.

Why you should watch it: Will we ever live in a world where there’s too much Marvel? So long as the universe’s crop of series are of the caliber of The Gifted, we’re inclined to say no. Just like the very best releases from the X-Men franchise, this series is heavy on the action, while also packing an emotional punch — and it even delves into political territory, dramatizing prejudices against the “other,” anti-establishment activist movements, extremists groups, and more. Season 2 premieres September 25.

Lethal Weapon 89% (Fox)


What it is: The Lethal Weapon films starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover have become somewhat canon for ’80s action nostalgia — so it makes all too much sense that the opposites-attract buddy-cop flick would get a modern reboot. Damon Wayans steps into the shoes of Glover for this one, and while Clayne Crawford took over for Gibson for the first two seasons, Seann William Scott is stepping in this season after behind-the-scenes drama led to Crawford’s dismissal.

Why you should watch it: There’s something inherently appealing about a marriage of the fish-out-of-water and opposites-attract formulas, and the effort holds up for this latest small-screen reboot. With Scott added to the mix, we’re in for even more fun this season. Catch up before season 3 premieres September 25.

Empire 84% (Fox)


What it is: A family drama of Shakespearean proportions, Empire charts the various rises and falls of the Lyon family — for starters, those of patriarch Lucious (Terrence Howard), a hip-hop mogul who’s in the process of choosing an heir to his musical throne.

Why you should watch it: Nothing short of a phenomenon upon its premiere in 2015, Empire is classic Lee Daniels: engrossingly soapy, slightly camp, meticulously performed, and endlessly entertaining. Taraji P. Henson does some of the best work of her career as the scene-stealing and wig-snatching Cookie Lyon. She alone is worth the watch, but it helps that she has an excellent ensemble at her back, led by Howard who acts as the very best foil to her scheming. Season 5 premieres September 26.

The Good Place 97% (NBC)


What it is: Talk about a creative spin on the afterlife! Kristen Bell stars as the recently deceased Eleanor Shellstrop, who by some glitch in the system ends up in the “Good Place,” a Utopian haven for those who served their lives on Earth with grace that was designed by Ted Danson’s Michael. Thing is: Eleanor doesn’t actually fit the bill of admittance and has to keep her righteous new friends fooled if she wants to stick around.

Why you should watch it: The Good Place is certainly among the best network comedies of recent memory. An always-charming Bell and TV royalty Danson play off of each other in a way that — what the fork!? — simply works. We can’t wait to see the good places they take us come season 3’s September 27 premiere.
