Tatiana Maslany on ‘She-Hulk’ Season 2: “I Think We Blew Our Budget”

Tatiana Maslany On She Hulk Season 2 I Think We Blew Our Budget

‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’ was one of the most anticipated MCU series, but it faced mixed reception upon release for valid reasons. Firstly, despite each episode costing around $25 million, totaling $225 million, the show’s CGI effects were lackluster. While it’s understandable for the whole character to be CGI, She-Hulk often looked out of place.

The second major criticism focused on the writing. Despite featuring cameos, jokes, mindless fun, and meta-humor, the series struggled with a vapid and flat storyline that contributed little to the broader MCU. The inclusion of a twerking scene also sparked divided opinions.

Rumors about a second season for ‘She-Hulk’ circulated in the summer of 2023, with some suggesting development would start after the conclusion of the SAG-AFTRA strike. This raised eyebrows, considering that other better-received series with more content had not received a second season. The desire for more ‘She-Hulk’ seemed somewhat far-fetched in comparison.


Is She-Hulk Canceled, or Did Disney Renew the Show for Season 2?

Regardless, as Marvel Studios considers which projects to continue with additional episodes, Tatiana Maslany offered her perspective on the possibility of a Season 2 for the show. While participating in the Codenames LIVE! – The New Class stream, Tatiana was directly asked about the prospect of a second season, and she gave a straightforward response: no.

Tim Riel: “Should we hope for a Season 2?”
Maslany: “I don’t think so. I think we blew our budget, and Disney was like, ‘No thanks.'”

As we’ve previously noted, the cost of a single episode is approximately $25 million. Given Disney’s current record-low profits, particularly in the MCU projects, Tatiana’s rationale doesn’t appear unfounded. It seems impractical to invest a substantial sum in projects with mixed reviews at a time when Disney is facing financial challenges. Do you have any thoughts to share?
