X-MEN: THE ANIMATED SERIES Revival X-MEN '97 Coming To Disney+ With New And Returning Cast Members

There have been rumblings this might be the case for weeks now, but it's finally been confirmed that X-Men: The Animated Series will return to our screens for a revival titled X-Men '97. Check it out...

The Wrap has confirmed that X-Men: The Animated Series is officially getting a revival on Disney+ with a tentative return date for the beloved TV show scheduled for sometime in 2023. Titled X-Men '97, we're going to pick up where the original FOX series left off, with some returning cast members and quite a few new additions (it was probably inevitable that not everyone would be back). 

Among those returning are Cal Dodd (Wolverine), Lenore Zann (Rogue), George Buza (Beast), Adrian Hough (Nightcrawler), Christopher Britton (Mr. Sinister), Catherine Disher (Jean Grey), Chris Potter (Gambit), Alison Sealy-Smith (Storm), and Alyson Court (Jubilee).

New voices will include Jennifer Hale, Anniwaa Buachie, Ray Chase, Matthew Waterson, JP Karliak, Holly Chou, Jeff Bennett, and AJ LoCascio, and we're assuming they'll be delivering their takes on familiar characters and perhaps even a few additions who weren't part of the show the first time around. 

Beau DeMayo will serve as Head Writer and executive producer on X-Men '97, while Jake Castorena and Charley Feldman have been tapped as supervising director and supervising producer respectively. Don't fret, though as X-Men: The Animated Series writers Eric and Julia Lewald and director Larry Houston will all return to the beloved property in consultant roles. 

X-Men: The Animated Series ran from 1992 to 1997, and went a long way in helping to bring the characters to the big screen. It's remained popular ever since, so this is exciting news for fans!

Here's the official confirmation from Disney+:
