Though Hulu has yet to confirm a reason for the show’s cancellation, it’s not the first time that Hulu’s Marvel shows have been abruptly canceled. Shows like the live action “New Warriors” and the animated series Howard the Duck and Tigra & Dazzler had also been canceled before their scheduled airing.
M.O.D.O.K, along with the aforementioned shows, was one of four animated programs set up at Hulu and produced by Jeph Loeb. The plan was to eventually have them crossover in an event known as “The Offenders,” though their cancellations have likely scrapped those plans.
Though the news may shock some, it’s something that was hinted at back in January. During their presentation at 2022’s Television Critics Association, Hulu content boss Craig Erwich said that the platform had no announcements to make regarding renewals for M.O.D.O.K and that “Marvel and team will make the decisions for that franchise, and that brand.”
M.O.D.O.K was one of Marvel’s last remaining non-MCU shows, and it likely fell victim to Marvel’s ultimate goal of winding down on their television production, as it had been reported that Marvel Television no longer had plans to develop any new series beyond the shows that are currently in production.
IGN reviewed the first season of “M.O.D.O.K.” and held a viewing party of the series’ first two episodes with show co-creators Jordan Blum and Patton Oswald. IGN’s Siddhant Adlakha called the show’s first season a “refreshing, mile-a-minute comic self-parody.”
