There is a new American superhero TV series coming on Netflix. It is known as Jupiter’s Legacy Season 1. However, the show takes its inspiration from a comic by the same name. The creator of the comic is Mark Millar. The creator of the TV series is going to be Steven S. DeKnight. Jupiter’s Legacy is all set to premiere in 2020. Besides, the superhero genre has broken all barriers in the recent past. No streamer wants to miss out on this genre due to its high grossing capacity. However, Netflix is the latest addition to this. The announcement was done in 2018 that the streamer giant will be the home of this superhero legacy. The series seems to be a promising one and we are all excited to see some actions and powers. Therefore, here is everything we know about the series. Keep on reading to find out more.
Jupiter’s Legacy Season 1 Release Date
The series got a green light from Netflix way back in 2018. So it got two long years of production. The filming of the series began in July 2019. It is set to have eight episodes for the first season. The shooting was done in Toronto, Canada. Mark Millar is the writer and producer of the show. This is obvious because no one knows the source material better than him.
However, the journey for this superhero series was not all smooth. An announcement came in 2019, that Steven S. DeKnight steps down from the director’s chair. This is due to some creative differences on the set. However, Sang Kyu Kim replaces him soon and takes over. In late January 2020, Mark Millar tweets that the first season wraps up. They even celebrate in London. So if everything is well and in proper order, then we can expect the series to release by 2020. However, Mark Millar teases by saying, “None of our new projects launch till 2021”. So we can just hope for the best.
