The cast of Netflix’s superhero series Jupiter’s Legacy have been released from their contractual commitments, bringing the series to an end after just one season. Instead, streaming giant and writer Mark Millar will be working on developing other projects in the universe of Jupiter’s Legacy, starting with Supercrooks.
“I’m really proud of what the team has accomplished with Jupiter’s Legacy and the incredible work everyone has done during this original season,” Marc Millar said in a statement. “I’ve been asked a lot what we are planning with this world and the answer is see what the supervillains do.
