Not really. If a show’southward future is however hanging in the balance a twelvemonth on after its first appearance, then it’southward unlikely the network, or streaming service in this case, are too cracking for there to be more of it.

The failure of these shows can be put down largely to Marvel Television set, which was shut down at the finish of 2022 as the productions were moved under the command of Kevin Feige and his Curiosity Cinematic Universe

.

Feige has since overseen the launch of WandaVision, Hawkeye, Loki, The Falcon and the Wintertime Soldier and Moon Knight to great success, with three more than Marvel Tv set shows, Ms Marvel

set to launch afterward this year.

Sadly for Hulu, all the action is now on Disney Plus

, but given the lion’south share of the streamer is owned past Disney anyway, executives will be pretty sanguine about the evolution. It’southward simply sad for the creative teams backside the shows that made up The Offenders that all their difficult piece of work didn’t come to much.
