Marvel's NEW WARRIORS Featuring Squirrel Girl Ordered Straight-To-Series At Freeform; First Synopsis Revealed

We had previously heard that Marvel was developing a New Warriors TV series, but now we have more details on what to expect - including characters, showrunner, and a detailed plot synopsis.

Squirrel Girl and her pals are coming to Freeform! Following a previous report that Marvel was developing a New Warriors TV series with ABC, THR has now revealed that the show has actually been ordered as a 10-part, 30-minute live-action comedy at Freeform.

According to the trade, Cougar Town and Scrubs alum, Kevin Biegel, is nearing a deal to write the script and serve as showrunner.

As previously announced, Doreen Green, AKA Squirrel Girl, will be a member of the roster along with 5 other unnamed characters. There have been several incarnations of The New Warriors in the comics over the years, so who Green's teammates will be in this small-screen adaptation is anyone's guess. Squirrel Girl is described here as "a totally empowering fan girl who is tough, optimistic and a natural leader."

The New Warriors will premier sometime next year. Check out an official synopsis below.


New Warriors revolves around about six young people with powers living and working together. With powers and abilities on the opposite end of the spectrum of The Avengers, the New Warriors want to make a difference in the world ... even if the world isn't ready. With Freeform focused on a group dubbed "becomers" — those experiencing a series of firsts in life including first loves and first jobs — New Warriors explores the journey into adulthood, except in this world, they're not quite super and not yet heroes and the guys can be as terrifying as bad dates.
