The live-action adaptation of the hit Image comic book series Jupiter's Legacy showed a tremendous amount of promise and was surrounded by huge hype upon its release last month. However, it's safe to say that the show failed to stick the landing much to the chagrin of everyone involved and now, series creator Mark Millar has shockingly announced that the project will no longer be moving forward with the planned second season.
According to Deadline, Millar and Netflix, the official streaming home of Jupiter's Legacy were unable to settle their creative differences which ultimately led to the cast members, including big names like Josh Duhamel and Leslie Bibb being released from their contractual obligations on the show. Still, Millar remains optimistic that Jupiter's Legacy will return in some capacity in the future. "We’re confident we’ll return to it later."
Despite that, there seems to be no bad blood between Millar and the streaming giant as Deadline also confirmed that Netflix is now working on a live-action adaptation of another one of Millar's works Supercrooks, a comic book series he co-created with Leinil Yu. Taking to his official Twitter account, the renowned comic book creator expressed his excitement over the upcoming series which is also set to debut in animated form later this year.

Hopefully, Jupiter's Legacy Season 2 will still see the light of day. I mean, despite the fact that not a lot of people are raving about it, the series, to its credit was still able to generate a cult following and it would be a shame if the story will just end like that.
Jupiter's Legacy is streaming on Netflix.
