Jupiter’s Legacy season or, as it’s referred to on-screen, volume one was only released on Netflix in early May. But it’s already been decided that there will be no direct Jupiter’s Legacy season 2.
While no one has used the term canceled, original comic book author Mark Millar has stated that the cast has been freed from their contracts, thus ending the series for now. Future projects rooted in Jupiter’s Legacy universe will focus on other characters and regions, including a forthcoming series about supervillains.
Jupiter’s Legacy Season 2 Release Date
The first season for Jupiter’s Legacy was released in May. It was a hit and remained on the Top 10 list for quite some while. However, after some while, Mark Millar took to Twitter and informed everyone that season 2 was a no-go for now.
He stated, “Jupiter’s Legacy is a vast and rich space with lots of characters to mine, and so I’m happy to share that our next step here is a live-action version of the Supercrooks comic I created with Leinil Francis Yu a few years back. Given where we’re going next, we’ve made the tough call of letting our incredible cast out of their show commitment as we continue to develop all realms of Jupiter’s Legacy saga thoughtfully. We’re confident we’ll return to it later and want to say thanks to you guys for your continued support and to the cast and crew who made this look so great.”
Millar has previously spoken of the intention of Netflix to release several projects per year with Millarworld. And now, through his Twitter, he has informed everyone about a new project that we are excited to have a look at. But for all Jupiter Legacy fans, it’s sad news that the show is canceled for renewal. Although, maybe in the future, it will make a comeback and make all viewers happy.
Apart from unmined comedy stories, there is a lot to be done in Jupiter’s legacy from Season 1 to Season 2. First and foremost, we will need to see the consequences of that significant discovery, which revealed that Walter/Brainwave does every conflict in the current tale. This makes sense, as he explains to his daughter, Raikou, at the closing moments of the finale, he is only expecting to win power over the Union’s leadership for himself. He wants to engage himself personally in politics. Sadly, he disclosed too much of his terrible scheme and then slices the throat of his daughter. But Grace and Sheldon are aware of this and should do some fireworks for some time.
The plots with the younger generation of characters are also continued. The Utopians and Paragon had a decent father/son moment in the Supermax to beat Blackstar, but Paragon viewed the code still better than his son, so he hesitated to save him. Their relationship is probably even more fragmented. She’s using this superweapon and his teleportation device to track his sister, George/Skyfox, and we eventually found out about father and son. The point is, although we’ve seen Skyfox meet face to face with Walter as well as Grace in the finale, we don’t even know whether that was Skyfox’s true intention. Indeed, probably not. Walter created the whole psycho scenario—and both Grace and Sheldon bought it. We may obtain additional answers and information once Hutch (and perhaps with the aid of Chloe) hunts down George.
Jupiter’s Legacy Season 2 Flashbacks
And it’s obvious that the flashbacks still have stories to tell. While we saw their trip on the island and how the original six heroes had their superpowers, we didn’t see exactly what George had done, which meant that his union was alienated from him. In the present, we also don’t see David Conrad/Blue Bolt. Thus it’s always a guess what really happens to him.
Finally, the overlapping thread in the series is probably the code. And how closely the protagonists adhere to it. One of the worst moments in Season 1 is the time when Janna dies in Grace’s arms. Living in code as she has always been told. And as Grace later comments, the bad person comes to life; this seems wrong, and it breaks between the heroes. The bad person lives.
If season 2 ever happens, it will probably follow the same pattern showing glimpses between present and past. Moreover, it might also show how the rest of the gang tries to talk to Skyfox, the greatest supervillain in the show, and make her a part of their squad. But will she agree? Or will she try to end them all? These answers can be found only if Season 2 ever renews and releases.
