The upcoming animated series Spider-Man: Freshman Year has gotten a production update. In a recent tweet, the show’s writer, Jeff Trammell, said that production is “progressing smoothly” and that he is “eager for everyone to see the show.” He also said that the crew is working hard to make Freshman Year “feel special, fun and unique.”
The last time Marvel Studios provided an update on the show was in mid-2022, when they released concept art showcasing a young Peter Parker, a variety of Spidey costumes, and even Daredevil. Since then, there have been reports of delays in production, but Trammell’s tweet suggests that things are back on track.
Spider-Man: Freshman Year is set to premiere on Disney+ in 2024. It will be a 10-episode series that will tell the story of Peter Parker’s first year as Spider-Man. The show will be animated by Japanese animation studio Polygon Pictures and will be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In addition to Trammell, the show’s creative team includes executive producers Christopher Yost, Jeff Pinkner, and Steven Watts. The voice cast has not yet been announced.
