Netflix cancelled Jupiter’s Legacy season 2. The second adaptation from Millarworld is not happening. But a spin-off might be on its way.
The giant of streaming has acquired Millarworld a couple of years ago. Created by Mark Millar who served as a writer in lots of superhero cartoons and adaptations, Millarworld is a universe filled with people who have superhero powers. For those who are enjoying some action-packed superpower series, this was great news.
Jupiter’s Legacy, on the other hand, was the first fruit of this acquisition. Netflix Original series invited viewers to a world where having superpowers regarded as legacies that require to be honored. Because of the show’s performance and the negative reviews from the audience, Netflix has decided not to renew the series. The streaming service has cancelled the first adaptation from Millarworld after the first season.
The fans should not worry though, as we also know that a spin-off series might be on the way. Another series written by MarkMillar, the new show is called Supercrooks and it takes place in the same superhero universe.

Popular streaming service has lots of conditions when it comes to renewing a series. If a TV show manages to reach great viewership counts, it usually gets a chance for another season. But Netflix also takes the reactions of the audience into account.

Therefore, Jupiter’s Legacy probably could not get the results that would satisfy the streaming giant and the show is now cancelled.
