Freeform has been struggling to forge its own identity since its rebranding from ABC Family in 2016, and their next best chance at this has just flown the coop. Marvel’s New Warriors was set to debut on Freeform in 2018, but now the show is seeking a new home. After failing to find a time slot for the series, Marvel took it back and are now going to shop it around.

They’re not necessarily bad shows, mind you, but many of them have dipped into super cheesy territory: overly dramatic, seemingly lacking any sense of self-awareness, the works.

They’re the network that has all those shows like Pretty Little Liars and The Fosters that are like high school soap operas, but they also play The Nightmare Before Christmas and the Harry Potter movies a lot, not to mention reruns of Reba (yeah, that’s a show starring Reba McEntire) and Boy Meets World. Well, they’re about to get a little bit of a makeover.
Starting in January 2016, ABC Family will be rebranding itself as Freeform in an effort to gear itself towards the younger audience its been pulling in for years.
