X-MEN 97 Season 2 is Already in the Works Ahead of the Series Debut

Updated: The recent announcement of the X-Men 97 animated series by Marvel Studios has sparked excitement among fans. While awaiting the debut of the animated series, X-Men 97 Season 2 is already in the works. While we still wait for the first season of the revival to the fan-favorite 90s animated series, Lenore Zann, who voices Rogue has already revealed via social media that she has returned to the booth for the second season.

The original X-Men: The Animated Series writers Eric and Julia Lewald have revealed the release date and episode count of the highly anticipated revival series, X-Men 97. During an interview with Justin Underwood, they discussed the revival and gave a more precise release window of when the animated series will drop on Disney+.

They were asked what could be expected of the revival series, the duo stated they’re confident of the success and the new creatives attached are honoring what made the original series as successful as it was:

“There is great love and affection and respect from an entire group of people that are doing this show, starting at the top with Beau DeMayo as the showrunner. And they have this challenge, I believe, looking at 10 episodes for the first season that’s gonna come out mid-next year, and they’re starting it soon after ours ended.”

Developed by Eric Lewald, Sidney Iwanter, and Mark EdensX-Men: The Animated Series ran for five seasons and 76 episodes, from 1992 to 1997.

The revival is set to be a direct continuation of where we left our favorite mutant heroes in the original series finale and will feature several returning cast members including Cal Dodd, Lenore Zann, George Buza, Adrian Hough, Christopher Britton, Catherine Disher, Alison Sealy-Smith, and Alyson Court. Joining the cast are Jennifer Hale, Anniwaa Buachie, Ray Chase, Matthew Waterson, JP Karliak, Holly Chou, Jeff Bennett, and AJ LoCascio.

Although DeMayo is taking on the writing duties, Eric and Julia Lewald will still be attached to the revival as consultants alongside director Larry Houston. This is sure to keep the series headed in the same direction and bring the same energy we all enjoyed in the 90s series. DeMayo will also serve as executive producer with Jake Castorena serving as supervising director and Charley Feldman as supervising producer.

X-Men ‘97 will be coming to Disney+ in mid-2023. The original series is available on Disney+ now, so be sure to catch up while you have the time! Check out the full interview below:
