After a slew of cancellations from the broadcast networks, Hulu has decided to cancel one of their own – a Marvel show, albeit a lesser-known one. The streaming service has dropped Marvel’s MODOK after one season.
An adult animated comedy series, the Marvel’s MODOK TV show stars Patton Oswalt, Melissa Fumero, Aimee Garcia, Wendy McLendon-Covey, Ben Schwartz, Beck Bennett, Jon Daly, and Sam Richardson. In the show, the megalomaniacal supervillain known as MODOK (Oswalt) has long pursued his dream of one day conquering the world. But after years of setbacks and failures fighting the Earth’s mightiest heroes, MODOK (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing) has run his evil organization AIM into the ground. Ousted as AIM’s leader, while also dealing with his crumbling marriage and family life, the MODOK is set to confront his greatest challenge yet.
The show was created and written by executive producers Oswalt and Jordan Blum. Brett Crawley, Robert Maitia, Grant Gish, Joe Quesada, Karim Zreik, and Jeph Loeb also served as executive producers.
If you haven’t seen it, here’s a sample:
The first season of 10 episodes was released on Friday, May 21st of last year. MODOK came out of the now-defunct Marvel Television division of Marvel Studios. Helstrom came and went after one season and the plans for Howard The Duck and Tigra & Dazzler shows were canceled. The fate of Marvel’s animated Marvel’s Hit-Monkey The series, which launched in November, is still unknown.
