As superheroes continue to dominate the box office, Marvel Television is expanding its reach from ABC (Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter) and Netflix (The Defenders and its individual preceding shows) to Freeform, the network formerly known as ABC Family. Cloak and Dagger will be their first show on Freeform in 2018, and it’ll be followed by New Warriors, a series from Cougar Town creator Kevin Biegel that involves the fan favorite character Squirrel Girl and a handful of other superpowered teens.

So far Marvel Television has kept their small screen endeavors limited to shows like Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter on ABC and the round-up of street-level superhero shows that are leading up to an assembly of The Defenders on Netflix (which we just learned will be debuting this August). But Marvel’s new Cloak and Dagger series is heading to Freeform, and another Marvel series won’t be far behind on the same channel.
New Warriors is a Marvel Comics series that follows a group of young superheroes who are like the junior varsity version of The Avengers, not unlike what the New Mutants are to the X-Men. However, the TV series, which we first heard about last year, will star a character who has only ever been in the cartoon version of the team in The Ultimate Spider-Man animated series (seen above), and that’s Squirrel Girl.

Yet another big-screen classic is making the leap to the small screen. Fox has put into development a TV series remake of Big, the 1988 comedy starring Tom Hanks. But the really good news here is that the project is coming from Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce, who most recently worked together on the beloved-but-cancelled Enlisted.
