Reports Suggest ‘X-Men ‘97’ Will Continue for as Long as Possible

X Men 97 Voice Actor Discusses Morph Being Non Binary and Fan Backlash

‘X-Men ’97’ proved to be an unexpected success for Marvel Studios. After a string of disappointments in 2023, the studio was in need of something to regain confidence in the franchise.

Enter ‘X-Men ’97,’ a revival of the beloved ‘X-Men: The Animated Series.’ Fans were pleasantly surprised by the show’s ability to stay true to the original while incorporating fresh and contemporary elements.

Since its debut, the show has maintained consistently high ratings, with each episode surpassing the last. It was greenlit for a second season even before the premiere of the first season, and discussions about a third season are already underway.

According to Daniel Richtman, this trend is expected to continue as the studio is pleased with the show’s performance and intends to order as many seasons as possible. As long as fans remain satisfied and viewership remains strong, audiences can anticipate new content being consistently released.

However, some fans reacted negatively to this news, expressing concern that the show may struggle to maintain its high-quality storytelling without Beau DeMayo, who was unexpectedly fired just days before the premiere of the first season. The reasons for his dismissal remain undisclosed, but it suggests a significant issue if one of their top writers was let go.

Since Episode 5 aired, fans have been rallying for DeMayo’s reinstatement. There are also rumors circulating that the studio intends to revive other classic shows, notably the Spider-Man animated series.

This seems probable, especially since he appeared in the last episode of the show, and it was revealed that both series are set in the same universe. What are your thoughts? Do you think it’s a good idea? Share your opinion in the comments below!
