Jupiter’s Legacy, Netflix’s first series to debut from comic book writer Mark Millar, gets its first teaser trailer and official release date.
The first season will consist of eight episodes and will premiere 7 May 2021.
Jupiter’s Legacy is an adaptation of the comics of the same name. It’s about The Union, the first generation of superheroes who’ve been active since the 1930s with the Utopian as the leader. However, as they get older, they’re forced to look to their super-powered children to continue their legacy, which isn’t an easy thing to live up to.
Jupiter’s Legacy stars Josh Duhamel, Leslie Bibb, Ben Daniels, Elena Kampouris, Andrew Horton, Mike Wade and Matt Lanter.
Millar, who is best known for Kick-Ass and Kingsman, debuted Jupiter’s Legacy in comics in 2013 with artist Frank Quitely. They are executive producing with Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, Dan McDermott, Steven S. DeKnight, James Middleton and Sang Kyu Kim.
This might turn out to be Netflix’s answer to Amazon Prime Video’s The Boys.
