New Animated Spider-Man Series Coming to Disney XD Next Year

Get ready for more web-slinging on your TV, courtesy of Disney XD and Marvel Animation.

Marvel’s Spider-Man, an all-new animated series, will debut on Disney XD next year, the network announced at New York Comic Con on Saturday. You know the story: Awkward teen Peter Parker gets bitten by a radioactive spider and is suddenly endowed with superpowers that make him a natural crime-fighter.

“Spider-Man is the biggest action hero in the world,” Disney XD senior vice president Marc Buhaj said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with Marvel in this new original series that offers a fresh take on a beloved classic that will engage both new and existing Spidey fans with its compelling drama, exciting action and the signature sense of comedy.”

In case you were wondering, Disney XD’s current Spider-Man animated series — Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man, with the voices of Drake Bell, Chi McBride, JK Simmons and Steven Weber — will wrap up in January. The two-part “Graduation Day” finale will see the web-slinger taking on Doctor Octopus and other villains in a battle for New York City.

    Oooh. Can we also get a Spider-Gwen series, somehow?

  2. Joseph says:

    Aww, Ultimate Spider-Man’s ending? Well, it had a good run. Will Drake Bell still voice Spidey, or will another actor take over?

  3. K says:

    Spider-Man the animated series was one of my favorites as a kid. I rematched it over the summer and still loved it. Hopefully this new one is good too.

    Spectacular Spider-Man ended too soon

  5. Steven says:

    There needs to be a live-action Spiderman show on Netflix.

  6. Simone says:

    Aww I’m going to miss Ultimate Spider-Man!! It’s a great show!!

  7. V says:

    Personally, I wouldn’t mind seeing a Spider-Man series featuring Miles Morales as the webslinger. Bonus points if they were able to get Donald Glover to voice the character. Granted, he’s busy with his FX series “Atlanta”, but what Walter Jones from Power Rangers as Plan B? Hypothetically speaking

    Ultimate Spiderman is one of my favorites. It has good story telling and animation style, sort of reminds me of the classic series; I hope it’s ending naturally after four seasons instead of being dumped in favor of another show with lower quality animation, going off of that screenshot I see.

  9. John says:

    Any chance we could just get a continuation of the Spectacular Spider-Man instead? That show was the best incarnation of Spider-Man in any medium. Josh Keaton is the best Spider-Man voice actor! We need him back!

  10. I saw that coming. I don’t know why but I did

    From the logo it looks like they’re going for the cheaper flash animation this time around, the same thing they’ve been using the same thing for the latest Ben 10. The problem is that they also tend to dumb down the storytelling in the process.

  12. Pat says:

    The sixth Spiderman animated series in like 20 years. Wow, not many characters can say that.

  13. Deepak says:
