After just a single season debuted on Netflix back at the beginning of May, Mark Millar‘s comic book superhero series Jupiter’s Legacy starring Josh Duhamel and Leslie Bibb will not be returning for more. Though the word “canceled” hasn’t officially been used, all of the Jupiter’s Legacy cast members are being let out of their contractual commitments to return for more episodes. That means the show is pretty much done at Netflix, but Mark Millar doesn’t seem so comfortable putting such a period on it. It sounds like his next show on the streaming service will actually expand the universe that Jupiter’s Legacy established. Read More »
