Disney+'s X-Men: The Animated Series revival, X-Men '97, had yet to be been given an official premiere date, but we had heard that there were tentative plans for the show to debut on the streaming service before year's end.
However, we're going to have to wait a little longer to see the mutant heroes in action.
Amid a series of release date shake-ups, X-Men '97 has been officially pushed back to early 2024 - but it sounds like the show is going to be worth the wait.
In THR's report on the delays, X-Men '97 is described as "a spiritual and tonal continuation of the classic 1990s series that aired on Fox," and a "retro love letter to the original." The trade also confirms that plans are in place for a second season.
It seems there will be one significant difference, however.
According to CWGST, those expecting the revival to retain the original's 2D animation style might be disappointed.
X-Men '97 will serve as a direct sequel to X-Men: The Animated Series' five-season run, but there's speculation that it may also set-up the team's eventual live-action MCU debut (unlikely, but we might get a few hints and/or teases here and there).
Returning voice cast members include Lenore Zann as Rogue, Cal Dodd as Wolverine, Catherine Disher as Jean Grey, George Buza as Beast, Chris Potter as Gambit, Adrian Hough as Nightcrawler, Alison Sealy-Smith as Storm, Christopher Britton as Mister Sinister, and Alyson Court as Jubilee.
The official synopsis reads: "Storm and Wolverine try to continue the X-Men. Magneto comes in and wants to step up for Charles Xavier. [Mister] Sinister comes in to try to end the X-Men once and for all."
