It's been a year now since the animated M.O.D.O.K. series was released on Hulu. While it was well-received by critics for its hilarious take on the Marvel villain, we haven't heard any updates on whether the series is moving forward with another season. Now, an official decision has been made and it looks like the series' run is over.
According to Deadline, Hulu has officially canceled M.O.D.O.K. after one season. This decision comes after the streamer also canceled several Marvel-related original shows in the past several months such as Helstrom and also pulled the plug on the animated projects Howard the Duck and Tigra & Dazzler during their development phase. Hit-Monkey is now the only Marvel project on Hulu left that is still waiting for the fate of its renewal.
Patton Oswalt, who co-created the show and voiced the titular character, expressed his sadness about the news on Twitter and thanked the writers, voice cast, and Marvel for letting them "run amok in their toy box."
It is not surprising to hear the show's cancellation given that it originated at Marvel Television, the defunct television division led by Jeph Loeb, which was shut down in 2020. Its oversight was moved to Marvel Studios, which is headed by Kevin Feige and has a television slate of its own that is being produced for Disney+.
While the series wasn't a huge hit like the other Marvel projects, it did have some fans who are disappointed with this news as they will no longer see another season of the show. However, there have been rumors that M.O.D.O.K. will be making his live-action debut in the MCU soon. As for Oswalt, he is already part of the franchise since he is the voice of Pip the Troll in Eternals.
The first and only season of M.O.D.O.K. is available to stream on Hulu.
